Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Pro 7 16IRX8, i7-13700HX RTX 4070
If you can find it on sale (at the time of writing, it’s heavily discounted to $3,099), the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i is for anyone who is looking for a good, powerful gaming laptop instead of a stationary desktop PC. If you’re looking for portability and subtlety, the Legion can deliver gaming on the go without the look of a gaming laptop. If you miss the sale but still want the Legion, it’s perfect if you have the extra money, but really you’re paying for the convenience of a portable gaming laptop more than the specs. The Lenovo Legion Pro 7i is a fantastic gaming laptop, especially if you’re in the market for a mid-range powerhouse that can run games with an intense load easily and if you can ignore the whirring in the background.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
