The Lenovo Legion Slim 7 and Slim 7i are gaming laptops with support for up to a 16 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel 240 Hz display, up to an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX or Intel Core i9-12900HK processor, depending on the model, and discrete graphics.

But they’re also Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptops with 16 inch displays, measuring 0.67 inches thin and featuring a starting weight of just 4.5 pounds, despite having fairly large 99.9 Wh batteries.

Lenovo says the new laptops will be available this June with prices starting at $1519 for a model with an AMD Ryzen 6000 H or HX processor and AMD Radeon RX discrete graphics or $1589 for a model with a 12th-gen Intel Core H or HK processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics.

Both version of the laptop feature bodies made from magnesium-aluminum alloy. Both have screens surrounded by slim bezels. And both are available in two shades of grey (storm or onyx).

The Intel-powered Legion Slim 7i has a Thunderbolt 4 port plus a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, while the Legion Slim 7 with AMD inside has two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports instead. Both models also have HDMI 2.1, 3.5mm audio, and USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports plus an SD card reader

The laptops have backlit keyboards with per-key RGB lighting, stereo speakers with Harman Kardon audio, 720p or 1080p webcam options, and support for 135W USB Type-C chargers (although models with higher-power graphics will come with a 170W or 230W DC power supply instead).
