For quite some time, Lenovo’s flagship laptop under the Legion series has consistently been the 7i. Lenovo does have a 9i series for its Yoga consumer laptops, and the Legion 9i marks the first time in a while that Lenovo is using its top nomenclature for its gaming laptops.
As the first 16-inch gaming laptop from Lenovo, the main attraction of the Legion 9i is that it has a liquid cooling system that’s co-engineered with Cooler Master to further improve thermals and allow the Legion 9i to run at a maximum TDP of 230w while just weighing under 6 pounds (5.64 pounds to be specific). The liquid cooling system kicks in when the GPU hits 84 degrees Celsius to keep it cool. Aside form liquid cooling, the Legion 9i has an AI-tuned, triple fan air cooling system to keep temperatures stable even at heavy loads.
The Legion 9i has a unique design with its cover being made from forged carbon chips to give every unit a unique look and to make the gaming laptop as light as possible. Being a flagship gaming laptop, you can spec out the Legion 9i with up to a Core i9-13980HX processor, RTX 4090 laptop GPU, either an overclocked 64GB dual-channel DDR5 5600MHz or an overclocked 32GB dual-channel DDR5 6400Mhz RAM, and up to 2TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD storage.
You are also getting a flagship display with its 16-inch Mini-LED panel that has a 165hz variable refresh rate and 3.2k resolution, along with being able to switch between DCI-P3 and sRGB color spaces. Keeping the lights on the Legion 9i is a 99.9wHr battery that can be charged with either a 330w slim adapter or 140w USB-C adapter–both included in the box.
The Legion 9i starts at 4,499 Euros(~Php 276k) and will be available in Europe starting October.
