The new Lenovo Legion 7 is poised to do very well in both benchmarks in real-world gaming. Lenovo mentioned that it had improved its cooling system, which bodes well for sustained performance but also well for higher comfort if you choose using this computer on your lap.
The 240Hz refresh rate is a very nice touch, especially since the 1080p resolution should allow many games to effectively hit that refresh rate. That’s probably not true for the newest and heaviest games, but many people still enjoy games with less demanding graphics or simply favor speed over details.
The Lenovo Legion 7 “TrueStrike Keyboard” features anti-ghosting and large arrow keys, which is a must for gamers, but also for programmers, I can vouch for it. We’re not sure how the new key switches feel, but on paper, they look exciting and should be more “tactile” than conventional laptop keyboards.
The overall look of the Legion 7 is clean and sleek, and if we ventured to guess, we would say that it has been designed to please both Gamers and Creatives, two of the most important markets for high-powered laptops.
The overall design and specifications is a smart way to address the (non-workstation) Creative market as we all know that gaming systems are some of the most potent options when it comes to video editing for example.
