With the combination of an Intel Core i9-10980HK and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, the Lenovo Legion 7 offers an enormous performance potential. And since this is not a slim subnotebook, the performance is not limited to some short periods of time. This allows the impressive, 15.6-inch, 240-Hz display to really shine. In addition to the high refresh rate, the display also offers a very good contrast and a high maximum brightness. So those who are looking for a still relatively mobile desktop replacement for their gaming PC plus monitor will get their money's worth here.

In contrast to the battery life, the benchmark results and frame rates in games are often top values, since the Core-i9 CPU and GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q are able to make use of their full performance potential, despite the 15.6-inch format. This is probably due to the vapor chamber cooling, which is able to dissipate the heat effectively, even though it can be loud at times.

In everyday operation, the system and WLAN performance are particularly attractive. However, the mediocre keyboard slightly tarnishes the overall impression, which is otherwise quite positive. While the Lenovo Legion 7, which shows a good workmanship overall, still looks relatively subdued when it is turned off, it can start quite a lightshow the moment you turn it on. This can be adjusted (or deactivated) according to your preferences.

However, the largest weakness of the Legion 7 is its timing, since the new generation of mobile graphics card, which will probably bring a large performance jump, might already be introduced in January of next year. So regardless of whether you want to get the performance jump or whether you are hoping for a price drop, it will be worth waiting in either case.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
