Gaming portables come all decked out with high-end components, but are usually characterized by heavy and bulky chassis. Lenovo is trying to buck this trend with the Legion Slim 7i. Weighing in at 1.8kg and just 17.9mm thick, the Legion Slim 7i is the world’s lightest, slimmest GeForce RTX portable, according to Lenovo. The base model starts at USD1,329 and climbs steeply if you’re the least bit demanding. The Legion Slim 7i can be configured with up to an Intel Core i9-10980HK processor, 32GB of RAM, and 2TB of NVMe M.2 storage, but Lenovo hasn’t released the price of this more muscular configuration. An assortment of Nvidia GeForce graphics cards is also offered, starting with the GTX 1650 Ti and maxing out at the RTX 2060 Max-Q. The base model of the Legion Slim 7i has an FHD display with a 60Hz refresh rate, though it can be upgraded to 144Hz if you want smoother gameplay, or a 4K option with a 60Hz refresh rate. Just to note, this model doesn’t allow you to customize the RAM and storage yourself after purchase, so keep that in mind if you plan to buy one. Available in October or November.
