Reviews for the Lenovo Legion 7 16ARHA7

90.8% Radeon RX 6850M XT performance debut: Lenovo Legion 7 16ARHA7 laptop review | Notebookcheck
Aside from some bugs, the 2022 Legion 7 16 is arguably the best gaming laptop from Lenovo we've seen thus far — no Intel required. Meanwhile, the Raden RX 6850M XT is comparable to the Radeon RX 6800M for better or worse.

90% Lenovo Legion 7 Gen 7 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The Legion 7 Gen 7 rocks expectations for a high-end gaming laptop, backing excellent gaming performance with practicality. The laptop's screen has all the technology to make gaming enjoyable, and there are enough RGB lights built into the chassis to remake Saturday Night Fever. Long battery life makes it more well-rounded than the Intel version of this laptop, the Legion 7i Gen 7. Provided portability isn't at the top of your list—the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (2022) is hard to beat for that, though you’ll take a performance hit—the Legion 7 Gen 7 is a home run for Lenovo and AMD, and it earns our Editors' Choice award among high-end 16-inch gaming laptops.

16.00":

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.

2.581 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.


Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

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.


90.4%: There are not very many models that are rated better. Most of the assessments are in percentage ranges below that. The tested product is not considered perfect, but the sources give a clear purchase recommendation.
