How to open Lenovo Legion 9i (16″, Gen 8) - disassembly and upgrade options

85% Lenovo Legion 9i review (2023 RTX 4080 model)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Lenovo Legion 9i would have probably made more sense as a Legion Slim 9i, setting more realistic expectations that way. That's because this is a performance laptop in a premium slim chassis, one that performs well and runs surprisingly cool for what it is, but compromises on inputs, audio quality and battery life. It's also an expensive computer, especially outside the US, so rather difficult to recommend open heartedly. But it is the most refined Legion to date, and a device I enjoyed using more than I expected at first.

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.

2.56 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.


85%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
