Lenovo Legion might sound like a small army of robots from a science fiction movie, but it’s actually Lenovo’s line of impressive gaming laptops, desktops, and accessories. They have new laptops in the form of the Legion 5i/5 Pro, Legion 5, and the Legion 5i, plus monitors, keyboard, and mice to bring your gaming to the next level!
Gaming is all about screens. You want a large, responsive, and clear screen with plenty of speed, or you’re not going to be fast enough to take out a 9-year old while playing capture the flag in Roblox.
Luckily, all four of the new Lenovo Legion laptops sport AMD Ryzen or Intel 12th Gen processors, plus NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, providing plenty of power for all your battles. They also have Lenovo TrueStrike keyboards as well as Lenovo ColdFront for cooling and Lenovo Vantage to optimize for all your gaming needs.
Lenovo is also implementing what they call “magical minimalism” and bringing a sense of sleek style to gaming. This way, the first thing non-gamers will think is “whoa, cool laptop” and not “whoa, why is your laptop the size of one from 2003?”
Perhaps best of all, they’re also going to offer the Lenovo Carbon Offset program for Legion devices as well. They’ll calculate an estimate of the carbon footprint over five years and then provide a carbon offset, using specific partners and with sustainable ideals in mind; this allows consumers to upgrade their electronics and feel less guilty about their environmental impact!
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro Series
The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro series is what you grab when bringing out the big guns. It’s specifically designed to rock the competition in eSports with the world’s first 16″ WQHD laptop screen with a 240hz refresh rate, plus it offers TÜV Rheinland High Gaming Performance blue light. Hence, there’s no eye strain during that marathon eSports session! It supports up to 1TB SSD storage, 0-80% 30-minute rapid charge, and Lenovo Legion AI to optimize battery and performance best.
Both the Legion 5 Pro and 5i Pro come with Nahimic Audio by SteelSeries, so you’ll get the full audio experience of the plants versus the zombies. And your laptop (and lap!) will stay both cooler and quieter with Coldfront 4.0’s noise suppression and improved cooling systems.
In addition, you get the Legion Spectrum RGB lighting for the keyboard, allowing you to go simple with an all-blue backlight or go wild with rainbow keys.
The Lenovo Legion 5i Pro and 5 Pro come in Storm Grey and Glacier White, with the 5i Pro (Intel version) coming in February 2022, starting at $1,569.99, and the 5 Pro (AMD Ryzen version) coming in April 2022, starting at $1,429.99.
Lenovo Legion 5 Series
If you’re looking for a laptop that can rock your gaming world but also work as an excellent all-around device, the Lenovo Legion 5/5i might just be what you’re looking for.
They’re slim and minimal enough to be everyday drivers. However, they’ll still offer some impressive bells and whistles for gaming, with NVIDIA GeForce graphics and a 4-zone RBG keyboard with Lenovo TrueStrike. The keyboard itself is also 33% quieter, so you won’t keep your bat-eared roommate up whether you’re rocking Fortnight or banging out that last-minute term paper. Also available are Nahimic 3D audio, up to a 15″ WQHD screen with a 165hz refresh rate, and Dolby Vision, which adds up to a versatile and powerful laptop.
The Lenovo Legion 5i with Intel hits this February 2022, starting at $1,199.99, while the Lenovo Legion 5 with AMD Ryzen begins at $1,129.99 in April 2022.
Lenovo Legion Y25-30 Monitor
Now, if you’re serious about gaming, you need a monitor that keeps up with you. Lenovo Legion Y25-30 Monitor is designed to be the ultimate gaming monitor. It offers a 24.5in FHD screen, a smart variable refresh rate, 0.5ms moving picture response time (MPRT), and 1ms extreme response time, so there are no ghosting or other issues when things are moving quickly.
Plus, all these features mean the monitor is equally good when you’re just editing graphics, watching Netflix, or browsing Instagram. And of course, Lenovo has EyeSafe certification to keep your eyes healthy and happy for those hours of staring.
Look for the Y25-30 this May, starting at $339.99.
The entry-level Lenovo Legion G27qe-20 and Lenovo Legion G24qe-20 may not be as flashy as their gaming-forward sibling, but they still offer an impressive experience. They provide a 100hz refresh rate with up to 11ohz with overclocking, as well as other tweaks through the Lenovo Artery interface, allowing you to adjust color, contrast, and other settings depending on your games and uses.
The Lenovo G27qe-20 monitor will start at $299.99 and be available in March 2022, and the Lenovo G24qe-20 monitor will start at $259.99 in March 2022
Lenovo Legion Gaming Mice
Monitors and keyboards aren’t the only way to dominate the gaming field; you need a good mouse too. Lenovo Legion M600s Wireless Gaming Mouse is optimized for both left and right-handed users, can be used wirelessly via 2.4ghz connection, Bluetooth, or wired via USB-C, and offers 16.8 million colors in the lighting effects. The sensor picks up 19,000 DPI making it ultra-precise, and it can last up to 70 hours between charges.
To ensure your mouse is as fast as your reflexes, it even has PTFE feet for the lowest possible friction as it slides across surfaces. All this mouse power comes in May, starting at $89.99.
If that’s a bit steep, there’s also the Lenovo Legion M300s RGB Mouse which offers an ambidextrous design and an 8,000 DPI sensor, along with a wired connection.
