Lenovo unveils new Legion gaming laptops with new Ryzen 5000, RTX 30 mobile, and more

Legion 7

On the heels of Nvidia's announcement of its GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs, it's time for new gaming PCs to be announced. Lenovo is unveiling all-new Legion laptops today, including the Legion 7, Legion Slim 7, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 5.

The Legion 7 comes with a taller 16-inch 16:10 screen, something that we're seeing across Lenovo's lineup, and the screen supports 100% sRGB color gamut. You can have it configured with 2560x1600 resolution, and you'll still get 165Hz refresh rate and 500-nit brightness. And of course, you'll get the best frame rates with the new GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs that support Ray Tracing 2.0.

It comes with AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors, which were also just announced, an 80WHr battery, optional Killer AX1650 Wi-Fi, and Coldfront 3.0 cooling. The Legion 7 is coming in June, starting at $1,669.99.

Legion Slim 7

Next up is the Legion Slim 7, which Lenovo says is the world's lightest 15.6-inch gaming laptop with RTX graphics. With with Ryzen 5000, it comes with either a 4K 60Hz or 1080p 165Hz screen, a 71WHr battery, and more. It weighs in at 4.2 pounds, being made out of aluminum and magnesium. It will be available in May.

Legion 5 Pro

Then there's the Legion 5 Pro, which might be even more interesting than the others because it's the first redesigned Legion we've seen in a while. In fact, this design looks more similar to the original Legions we saw a few years ago. It comes in Storm Grey or Stingray White, and there are options for the color of the backlight.

It has four-sided narrow bezels, offering a 90% screen-to-body ratio thanks to the taller 16:10 display, and that screen supports Dolby Vision and Nvidia G-Sync. The resolution of the 16-inch screen is 2560x1600 and it gets a 165Hz refresh rate. It also comes with a larger touchpad, a flatter and more durable hinge, and better venting. The Legion 5 Pro is coming in March, starting at $999.99.

Legion 5

Then there's the Legion 5, which comes in 15- and 17-inch flavors. It comes with a 1080p display that can offer up to a 144Hz refresh rate on the 17.3 version and 165Hz refresh rate on the 15.6-inch model. They come in colors like Stingray White and Phantom Blue. The Legion 5 starts at $769.99 and will be available in March.

On the entry-level, there's a new IdeaPad Gaming 3, which is coming in June for $669.99. Lenovo also announced the Legion H600 Wireless Gaming Headset, which is coming in April for $99.99, and the Legion H200 Gaming Headset, which will also be available in April but for $49.99.
