Lenovo Legion 7 15IMH05-81YT000UGE

Lenovo has dropped its latest venture onto the market, the Lenovo Legion 7 15IMH05-81YT000UGE. This laptop comes with a 15.6-inch screen. It has been equipped with an IPS panel carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As for the camera, this laptop comes with a 720p webcam for the user’s convenience. It should be noted that this device is in the MSI GS65 Stealth range. However, unlike the GS65, this Legion 7 model makes less noise than the Saturn V rocket powering the Apollo missions, and manages to provide very respectable frequencies and temperatures.

In terms of its battery, this notebook has been equipped with an 80Wh Lithium-Polymer battery, and the longevity of the battery typically depends on the hours of usage and the intensity of usage, which vary from user to user. Typically, the battery can last for about 6 hours with gaming and about 8 hours with normal day-to-day usage. As for the performance, the Lenovo Legion 7 15IMH05-81YT000UGE has been equipped with an Intel Core i7-10750H processor. This is a high-end processor for laptops with six cores based on the Comet-Lake architecture. The CPU should run fine even with demanding applications. The graphic adapter for this model is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Super Max-Q, which is the power-saving variant of the mobile GeForce RTX2080 Super. This adapter allows the latest and most demanding games to be played in high resolutions.

In terms of its connectivity, this laptop has been equipped with three USB 3.0/3.1 Gen-1 ports. It also has a single Thunderbolt, HDMI and a DisplayPort respectively. In addition, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack for users to attach their wired headphones/earphones. This caters for a much better user experience while listening to their favourite music or movie. While there are many out there who prefer wired headphones, some are not really  fans of using headphones at all. Therefore, if the user does not like the option of using headphones, there is an awesome set of speakers integrated within the laptop for an incredible audio experience. Apart from all the ports mentioned above, it should be noted that there is also a single USB Type-C port, which is useful for charging and data transfer.

As far as the keyboard is concerned, this model has been equipped with a chiclet keyboard with a Numpad. It should also be noted that the keys have a backlight for a better experience while using it. In terms of its touchpad, the laptop has a Buttonless Mylar surface multi-touch touchpad. Overall, this is definitely a great laptop to explore, but the choice of owning one is absolutely subjective, depending on the choice and preference of the users.

70% Lenovo Legion 7i review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Legion 7i offers mixed performance. The Lenovo gaming rig towers above its rivals when it comes to file-transfer speed, virtual reality and screen brightness, but the Legion 7i fails to stand out on overall performance, video transcoding and battery life. If you’re seeking a longer-lasting gaming rig, you should consider the MSI GS66 Stealth, which lasts two hours longer on a charge.

80% Lenovo Legion 7i review: Core i7-10750H, RTX 2080 SUPER, and a 240Hz screen
Source: Neowin English
Aside from the performance and the SSD, one thing I really appreciated was Thunderbolt 3. Since I use so many laptops, I'm almost always working with a Thunderbolt 3 dock, so I can just connect my two 4K monitors and work from the laptop that I'm reviewing. Usually with a gaming laptop, I have to make some compromises because gaming laptops don't have Thunderbolt 3, or multiple USB Type-C ports.

Lenovo Legion 7 (15) review – tackling the new Super graphics cards with an improved cooling
Source: Laptop Media English
So, everybody, we just reviewed a great all-rounder, when it comes to productivity. It can be configured with some of the most powerful mobile processors and graphics cards out there. What’s so special about it? Well, it weighs 2.25 kg and has a profile of 19.9 mm. This is in the MSI GS65 Stealth range. However, unlike the GS65, the Legion 7 (15) makes less noise than the Saturn V rocket, powering the Apollo missions, and manages to provide very respectable frequencies and temperatures.

Lenovo Legion 7i Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Lenovo Legion 7i ticks all the boxes on our list. It has a premium build, a portable and professional-looking design that won’t look out of place in an office environment, a fantastic 240Hz display, a privacy shutter on the webcam, an attractive RGB setup, good battery life, cool software features, and great performance and thermals. We didn’t like the power button though and the small trackpad, but we’re nitpicking as these are things we can sweep under the rug given its pros. At PHP 134,995, it’s pricey, but a competitive price considering what it has to offer. So, if you’re a gamer or a creator, and on a hunt for a laptop that packs the power mentioned above, then the Legion 7i should be at the top of your list.

Lenovo Legion 7i
Source: PC Mag English
In pure gaming performance, the Legion 7i claims the advantage—and since it's the second cheapest among the premium 15-inch gaming rigs, it scores high for value despite boasting double the SSD storage of its rivals. The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 reigns supreme in the midrange price tier, and the Alienware m15 R3 clings to its Editors' Choice for its slicker design and slightly lower price tag, but the Legion 7i is well worth a look from hardcore gamers everywhere.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 3,072 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified between 80 and 90 Watts with different clock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.

Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10750H: On Comet Lake architecture (4th gen of Skylake) based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 5 GHz (most likely 4.3 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).

i9-10980HK: On Comet Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 3.1 - 5 GHz that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). At the time of announcement, the i9-10980HK is the fastest Comet Lake-H CPU and fastest laptop CPU on the market. Thanks to the free multiplicator, the CPU can also be easily overclocked (but may not have much headroom).

2.25 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.383 kg:


79.08%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
