On 31st August, Lenovo launched another Legion series laptop, the Lenovo Legion Slim 7i which Lenovo bills to be the lightest RTX enabled gaming laptop ever made.
Here’s what you need to know about the Legion Slim 7i

Is the Legion Slim 7i worth all the hype?
Yes, the laptop is truly worth all the hype! One cannot expect GeForce RTX in such a thin chassis but Lenovo has cracked it. The GPU options are only up to the RTX 2060 due to their emphasis on a thin design. Lenovo claims that the thermals of the laptop won’t throttle but those who have got a hand on this laptop claim that it does throttle. The Legion Slim 7i comes in with numerous display, memory and GPU options making it a great choice for gamers and content creators.
