Using the Legion Go as a Workstation

Hey all.  New to the Go (as of yesterday), but one of the things that intrigued me about it over the ROG Ally or the Steamdeck is it's ability to be used as a workstation as well.  

Have any of you used it for productivity/work, and if so how was it?  Any recommended peripherals (aside from a keyboard and mouse)?

  • yes, I've been using the Legion Go as a replacement for my laptop for almost 3 months.
    From morning to evening I use it for work in the office, and at night I use it to play games.

    Do you have a picture which makes it clear that all of the I/O are connected to the Legion Go?  Because the display, keyboard, and mouse could be connected to any device.

    Falah's mysterious setupbtw- Why did you change the image on Imgur?  The link on the image above is to this  →

    You know... you can upload images through the post-editor's menu, using:

    Insert→Film framesImage/video/file

    Or you can use just the image link.  Right-click on most images; then left-clck on Open image in new tab.  The new tab's URL is the link for just the image (usually, but not always).

  • Hello , sorry to make you confuse.
    I just found out that if we can upload images directly from the gallery, I thought
    it should be uploaded first to another platform.

    I'm using a usb hub plugged in via the Legion Go bottom usb port.
    then from the usb hub I plug the charger, HDMI, and also to the monitor stand table (which also functions as an additional USB hub at the front)
    Here I upload the picture again, I hope this time it is clearer and does not confuse you.

    Cool!  That's much better.

    Actually... what's with the REPUBLIC OF GAMERS watermarks on those images?  Is it a Legion Go?  Or a ROG Ally?  Are those images from an official website?

    I emphasized their locations with ellipses (click to enlarge/zoom):

  • Hi  ,

    that's very cool! Especially this special stand including the connectors I've never seen before! Could you do me the favour and share a link to it if you got it frim an online shop? Open mouth

  •  

    I capture that images using my ROG Phone, so the watermark comes from my phone.
    sorry to make you confuse.

    thanks bro,
    I accidentally found it. I intended to buy a monitor stand to get a better viewing position for my external monitor, but accidentally an ads for this item appeared on my timeline.
    I bought it for only Rp 275.000,- (around 18USD) at the local marketplace. https://shp.ee/vt2g58i
    But I'm afraid that my link cannot be useful to you, so maybe you can search it using its product name.
    its name is Rexus FP-03 Trant.

    I hope this can helps.

  • Hi thanks a lot!

    Yes, I am not able to look into the link, but would need to install the app and/or register for the online app. 

    Thanks a lot for the Product name though! I'll search for it and look it up then.

    If you are paying in Rupees (or how it is properly written, sorry Sweat smile), is it an Indian currency?

    I'm also not in the US, but will have to look it up in European/German ressources/online shops, and see if it is available at all for those markets, and will let you know WinkThumbsup.

    Beeing at that price point I expect it to only have 2.0 (or more likely 3.0 USB speeds) and not super high  monitor refresh rate speeds (more then 60 Hz), but that's just a guessing. Hopefully I'm surprised by it having better values then I think, or otherwise I'll look for similiar alternatives.

    -> It is the data of each single connector I'm interested in. (Which should be possibly good)

  • sorry, Rp is Rupiah, Indonesian currency.
    maybe commonly better known as IDR (Indonesian Rupiah)
    that price is only for the monitor stand, and it has 4 USB 3.0 ports.

    and for the monitor, I bought it for about 100USD, brand name is Zeuslap ; 16inch, 1200p, 60hz.

  • Hi Falah,

    ah, Indonesian currency, thank you for your explaining WinkThumbsup

    And thanks for letting me know! 4 USB 3.0 ports for that price is really good! Will be more expensive for shore in Germany for comparable hardware..

    I understood that, what I meant is the hertz/maximum FPS the port/ USB connector used for monitor/Display connection has...

    -> So I need to look that up, how much USB 3.0 port supports as maximum... Not shore it can go up to 120/144/165 Hertz.
