Lenovo has launched one of its thin and light gaming laptops, the Legion Slim 7, in India. The laptop is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, and an RTX 3060 takes on the GPU duties. It’s available for sale starting February 28 starting at INR 1.44.990.
The display is a 15,6-inch panel running at 2560 x 1440 going as high as 165Hz. You also get G-Sync and Freesync support. Other internals includes 16GB DDR4 RAM at 3200MHz with one slot to add additional memory up to 24GB. There’s a 1TB M.2 SSD for storage and 4 NVMe slots for additional storage.
The company is also collaborating with Microsoft to provide buyers of the Yoha, IdeaPad and Legion series with three months of free Xbox Game Pass access and Windows 11 Home preinstalled.
Lenovo’s latest Legion
The Slim 7 runs a 100W RTX 3060 with 6GB of VRAM. The GPU should be enough to saturate the 165Hz display, which the company claims have 100% sRGB accuracy along with Dolby Vision, Free-Sync and G-Sync support.
Lenovo claims a battery life of up to eight hours on the integrated 71Wh battery. There’s also a 180-degree hinge that houses a 720p webcam with an in-built privacy shutter.
The speakers are relatively small, coming in as dual 2W units; however, gaming laptops aren’t exactly known for good speaker performance anyway. The additional Nahimic Audio and Smart AMP features should help you get better sound.
The laptop comes with Lenovo’s ColdFront 3.0 cooling solution, which the company claims give zero thermal throttling. However, with a 100W TGP GPU and the Ryzen 7 5800H, that claim will easily be put to the test over longer gaming sessions.
