Regarding the claim for the world’s lightest 15-inch gaming laptop, Lenovo explains that the chassis is made of aerospace-grade aluminum that allows for a 0.71-inch profile and shaves off weight down to 4.1 lbs. To keep internals running at optimal temperatures, Lenovo offers the Legion Coldfront 2.0 cooling system, and the laptops also benefit from a 71 Wh battery that can last up to 9.6 hours.
Other features include a fingerprint reader integrated with the power button, white backlit TrueStrike mechanical keyboard, HD webcam with privacy shutter, 2x 2 W Dolby Atmos speakers, and a Killer Wi-Fi 6 card with Bluetooth 5.1.
