Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Slim 7i 16 Gen 8
Lenovo's latest Legion laptop lavishly looks the part without needing to cut corners in regards to chassis quality, auxiliary features, or display options. Performance is excellent even though it lacks some enthusiast-class processors.
With the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i, you are guaranteed to have a powerful and reliable laptop that grows with you, from the moment you unbox it, up until the moment it needs to be shelved, years after. If you want to know more or get your very own Legion Pro 7i, feel free to visit Lenovo’s official website. You can also follow Lenovo’s official Facebook and Instagram pages.

The Legion Slim 7i does have some rough edges - such as the modest screen brightness and its less-than-imposing sound system. Even so, Lenovo has still done a good job of squeezing some very powerful gaming hardware into a slim and lightweight design, and the Slim 7i will certainly be able to handle some serious gaming action when it needs to. If you don’t need such a large display then there are certainly smaller, lighter gaming laptops available. However, the Slim 7i is competitively priced for a 16-inch gaming laptop, so it’s a good choice for anyone that really needs that larger screen size.

If it’s a solid all-round gaming laptop you’re after, then the Lenovo Legion Slim 7i 16 is a great choice. There aren’t many laptops that provide everything from stylish looks to good performance and battery life, as well as a decent display in this price bracket. To get all this, usually, you’ll be spending an extra few hundred, so to get all this for £2300 or so is a good deal, actually. Of course, you can get a little bit more power for less money with the likes of the Alienware M16 and its clever dual refresh rate display. However, it weighs over a kilo more than this Lenovo choice and offers a poorer battery life. The Medion Erazer Major X20 is perhaps a better choice for those who want all-out power at a similar price tag, and a rather similar spec sheet – it comes at the cost of a much smaller battery, though. Whichever way you cut it, though, the Lenovo Legion Slim 7i 16 makes for a good all-round mid-range gaming laptop in what is a fiercely contested part of the market.

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.
