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.

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.

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.
