Lenovo Legion 7 gaming laptop review: A smash hit

Under the hood there's an Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU, which is wildly powerful, and really well handled here - and well paired with a Ryzen 9 series CPU. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The screen - which is a 16in 2560 x 1600 resolution ultra-bright LCD panel - can be bent back by 180-degrees, which is unusual for such a laptop. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The glass-topped trackpad here is a dream, although its left-aligned position isn't our favorite. The keys are also more shallow than the Legion 5 Pro's. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
From one angle it could be a big business laptop, but this discreet style can be set alight with customizable RGB lighting for a whole other look. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Despite the RTX 3080 GPU, somehow Lenovo has managed to keep the Legion 7 fairly quiet under load. That's no mean feat - we're impressed. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It's not a very portable laptop, as the 2.6kg weight and 0.9kg power brick attest. The ports mostly sit to the rear, further asserting its desktop placement. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This is one of the most desirable gaming laptops of 2021. The step-down Legion 5 Pro may be a better, but if you can afford the Legion 7 then it's a smash hit. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
