Lenovo Legion has unveiled its 2020 line of gaming laptops, desktop PCs, accessories and a pretty sweet looking eGPU unit. The laptop line has five pieces of hardware all which scale to different types of gamers. All of the products listed should be available in late May/early June.
The Lenovo Legion 7i starts at $3,999 AUD and it’s the top of the line premium gaming laptop. It has a 15″ IPS display with 100% sRGB colour accuracy and the ability to house a display rate of up to 240Hz (it comes in a 144Hz display variation too). You can house a GPU as powerful as the NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super with Max-Q Design and a 10th Gen Intel Core i9 H-Series mobile processor.
It has an all-metal exterior case and RGB lighting accents through the base of the unit as well as the cooling vents. It has a Lenovo LEGION True Strike keyboard with full RGB and in the way of cooling, it has an integrated Vapor Chamber and a dual fan system in order to maximise performance. It also has a 80WHr battery with Rapid Charge capabilities netting you 50 percent of power in 30 minutes.
The Lenovo Legion T740Si Laptop starts at $2,899 and it’s thin and light weighing in at just 1.7kg. It has a 10th Gen Intel Core i9 H-series processor and the ability to house a 15″ 4K IPS screen with an 100% RB colour gamut. The idea of this mega thin and light laptop is that you’ll pair it with the Lenovo Legion BoostStation which can house your GPU as well as extra storage.
The Lenovo Legion 5Pi will start at $2,999 and looks a little different to the rest of the lineup with a white-backlit “Y” logo build into the lid of the grey laptop.

There’s also an AMD version of the Lenovo Legion 5 which comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 4000 H-Series processor as well as a RTX 2060. This will start at $1,999AUD.
For entry level gamers, there’s the IdeaPad Gaming 3i which will begin at $1,849 and will have a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 H-Series processor and house up to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU.
In the way of desktops, you’ve got the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i which starts at $2,499. Lenovo will be selling it with a GPU of up to a NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super and you’ll get the same Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 cooling system. There will also be an AMD version which will be released later this year.
All in all, the lineup is a good mix of power, with a few new little design features that make the Legion line feel a lot more premium in 2020.
