89.1% Lenovo Legion 5i 16 G9 review - The fast gaming laptop with Raptor Lake-HX and an AI engine | Notebookcheck
At this year's CES, Lenovo presented its new Legion 5i 16 G9 and we have already had the chance to test the new mid-range gaming laptop. Its new Core i7-14650HX in combination with the RTX 4060 Laptop power a fast 240-Hz QHD panel. Of course, AI functions are also on board in the year 2024—but to no effect.
Lenovo Legion 5i (2024) | Explosive 16-Inch Gaming Laptop
Source: Tech Spurt English
The Lenovo Legion 5i has been updated for 2024 and this 9th generation 16-inch gaming laptop boasts 14th Gen Intel® Core™ processor performance, plus Nvidia RTX 4000 series visuals. While the Lenovo Legion 5i isn't the most portable new gamer notebook, it's certainly one of the most powerful. If you're after a beefy laptop with strong specs for a respectable price, this is an option well worth considering. That 16-inch IPS display boasts a crisp QHD resolution, with Dolby Vision HDR support. You've also got up to 240Hz maximum refresh with, of course, full VRR support - and the Lenovo Legion 5i 2024 pumps out glorious audio from the stereo speaker setup.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
