    Equal Parts Domination and Creation - The new Lenovo Legion 7i, 5i Pro, and 5i laptops

    Powered by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors, Lenovo Legion offers gamers and content creators a choice of high performance processors for superior streaming, low latency, high frames per second (FPS), and near desktop-caliber performance. Due in part to the expansion slots supporting up to 20 PCIe lanes which result in greater bandwidth and storage allotted to the performance of a connected hardware component (e.g. high-speed graphics cards, SSDs, and Wi-Fi cards), it can dramatically improve tasks like graphics rendering because it offers quicker loading speeds from the SSD during intense gameplay.

    The Lenovo Legion gaming PC family runs on Windows 10 to unlock the full potential of your hardware – able to handle the demands of multitasking and heavy workloads with up to 5GHz turbo frequency for peak performance on multiple cores before overclocking.

    Built for performance efficiency with eight cores and 16 threads, these Intel-powered gaming laptops are supported by Thunderbolt™ 4 for more reliable display connections, quicker charging and data transfers. Your laptop doesn’t have to compete for bandwidth on the same wireless channel as other devices thanks to Intel Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 connectivity that allows you to watch live gaming streams without slowdowns.

    With iconic details in refined finishes and colors that consumers love, the new Lenovo Legion PCs offer the remarkable performance of NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ Laptop GPUs with the latest ray tracing cinematics. On the new Lenovo Legion 7i, gamers can discover new levels of realism with up to 165W4 GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. What’s more, the new Lenovo Legion 5i Pro and Lenovo Legion 5i laptops also support NVIDIA’s latest graphics including GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050, both yielding up to 95W of total graphics power to get the most from AAA gaming titles.

    The new Lenovo Legion laptops also feature:
    • Greater eye protection from blue light on the world’s first 16-inch QHD gaming laptop display with 16:10 aspect ratio and up-to-165Hz refresh on the TÜV-certified Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i Pro laptops
    • Faster millisecond key inputs compared to two generations ago and the precision of Lenovo Legion TrueStrike
    • Lenovo Legion Coldfront 3.0 thermals that provide an increased airflow of 18 percent gen-to-gen and lower system temperatures for longer gameplay with zero throttling
    • AI-optimized Lenovo Legion AI Engine for higher framerates that reduce in-game lag with overclock support by dynamically shifting power between the CPU and GPU7 for intensive titles that are either custom-tuned already or auto-detected by the system
    • Premium extras such as the webcam kill switch for greater privacy on the laptop’s side and a wide array of input/output (I/O) port types on either side and at the rear for easy connection of accessories

    With a mode for an extreme 1ms response time, the Lenovo Legion Y25g-30 is engineered to eliminate streaking and ghosting in-game. This IPS panel provides the wide angle viewing and vivid color performance at 99 percent sRGB wide color gamut needed to win; its 400 nits of brightness with maximum HDR effect work together to make on-screen content look more realistic. Add some flair by adjusting your monitor’s RGB lighting effects and hear audio without the need for any external devices with its dual, built-in 3W speakers. If you’re partial to your gaming headset—keep them safe on the monitor’s integrated hook when not in use.

    @Marion I think I've found an ideal replacement for my ThinkVision monitors!!!

    Some quick questions if you're able to source the answers:

    - what is the weight of the Legion Y25g-30 monitor? (i use a Vesa mount for them, though on 27" monitors)
    - it's 1ms response time in Extreme Mode, but is the 360hz available in Extreme Mode or only 144hz?

    Looking forward to trying to get my hands on one of those...
