The Legion 7i is the most powerful gaming Lenovo laptop to buy in India. Well, I have bought it on rent and played 3 video games on it. The Games I played on it are GTA V, Fortnite, and League of Legends. The display of this laptop is super attractive thanks to its 100% RGB Gamut.

Also, the 144Hz refresh rate allows to see detailed movement while playing the games. Furthermore, The keyboard and touchpad are not impressive. When I have pressed it, a slight gap was created from the surface. Also, while playing the game, the heat was experienced on the keyboard. I suggest you buy keyboard and mouse separately. Also, the plastic cover at the top of it doesn't dim its premium look. It has enough ports on the back side which many Gamers likes.

Furthermore, the gaming experience was quite smoother thanks to its 8GB NVIDIA GPU, and 16GB RAM. And, while playing all of that three games, the laptop lasted on average for 2 hrs and 15 minutes. In addition to that, the cooling system of this laptop is pretty amazing. It has vents on back and sides.

The Lenovo Legion 5i provides a better keyboard and touchpad than 7i to let you experience the better gaming. The tactile feedback are very impressive. Although, the specs are low but you gonna enjoy it. I have played GTA V, Fortnite, and League of Legends.

While playing Fortnite, the frames were dropped but I was not distracted due to that. Also, the speakers are good to hear the sound clear and the body. You may notice its plastic body but the laptop definitely looks premium. The 8GB RAM has provided a very smoother gaming experience on this laptop. Lenovo has designed it to look like a business laptop and also a gaming laptop.

The fans are silent and have no manual control. The vents are open at side and on back of the laptop which credit to more efficient thermal management. Also, the ports are placed on the backside which pretty useful. Overall, I have enjoyed the gaming on it.

Lenovo Legion Y540 is the best budget laptop to meet your gaming needs. You won't get longer battery as compared to Legion 7i and 5i, but you will definitely get a performance gaming laptop. The display is pretty awesome, also Lenovo is giving you 180-degree hinge for better viewing. The front-fired speakers are placed at the bottom side are just okay.

The screen is covered by thin bezels from three sides and on the backside it is covered with plastic. I have played Fortnite, GTA V, and League of Legends on it. Similarly to the above laptops the frames were dropped during Fortnite. This Business+Gaming style laptop has pretty impressive keyboard. The keys are giving enough tactile feedback.

The touchpad is not good, It's better you buy any external mouse or touchpad. And, mostly gamers buy the gaming mouse instead of a touchpad. The vents are open at backside and from sides for thermal management. The gaming performance of this laptop is outstanding except its battery and speaker.

The display is covered from three sides by thin bezels to give it a premium look. Also, on the back, you will get a logo which lights also. But, you can manually switch off it. Last, the battery life is not impressive, the rest of things made this laptop pretty fine.

FAQs

Why these laptops have quite low battery life?

The battery life that I have mentioned in this article for all laptops is a result of a continuous gaming. So, if a laptop in this article shows battery life of 1 hrs and 42 minutes then you can play any games continuously for that much time. These laptops will run for higher time than the mentioned one if you do any light tasks like video playing, web browsing, document editing, or many more that don't require GPU.

Are these laptops supports all video games?

I have no tested all the video games. But if the game falls under the specs of hardware, it definitely run.
