Lenovo has revealed to the world the 2022 version of the Legion 7 series gaming laptops that rocks the most up-to-date silicon and computing parts.

Legion 7i Series 2022

First, we have the Legion 7 (7i) entering the eyesight with its sleek and stylish design featuring an improved hinge and I/O dashboard installed into an aluminum and magnesium aerospace-grade alloy chassis followed by a cleanly CNC machined trim surrounded by ambient RGB. Lenovo also snagged the chance to debut the 2022 edition duo by making them the world’s 1st gaming laptop utilizing a 16-inch WQXGA display for a great gaming experience in addition to the presence of Tobii Horizon for consistent head tracking to deliver improved immersion and Tobii Aware to protect user privacy. The Legion TrueStrike keyboard has also been optimized to run curved keys that provide deeper travel and if needed, the WASD Force Sensor technology emulates analog input to give object movement more life-like control.

Here are the main points that you should know if you’re planning to get them soon.

Legion Slim 7i Series 2022

On the other hand, the Legion Slim 7 (7i) cuts back on both the weight and RGB game to really make them the stealthy machines they are known for. Using a similar chassis of multi-metal alloy and CNC machined trim, most of the good points found on the Legion 7 series are here as well with just more limited selections applied to the internal parts. If a great gaming machine is both light and thin with reduced stress upon your wallet, then it is better to go for one of these.

Gaze upon the spec sheet and you’ll realize that, yes, the 12th Gen Intel Core HX mobile processor isn’t in here. Only the Legion 7 gets it.
