    Some questions on the Legion 7i
    16-06-21

    How are your laptop thermals on productivity? I'm getting around 40+ °C on my CPU while only basic things like browsing websites on Balanced mode, while I'm getting up to 60+ °C when I start watching videos with it and 70-80+ when gaming.
    Should 40 °C + be normal for gaming laptops on productivity? I just switched from a MacBook Pro, so I have no idea what to expect from gaming laptops, but my MacBook was always around room temperature and only at most rose a little higher when I have too many tabs open.
    Also, the option to switch to integrated graphics seems to have disappeared from the Nvidia control panel? I remember being able to switch between my RTX graphics card and integrated graphics in the first few days I had the laptop, but now, the option is missing, and when I check my settings in windows, it lists the RTX card as both the power saving option and the high-performance option.
