The Lenovo Legion Go is a handheld gaming PC with an 8.8 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel 144 Hz display, an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, 16GB of RAM, and Nintendo Switch-like detachable controllers.
The starting price is for a model with a 512GB SSD, but customers who want additional storage can pay $750 for a model with a 1TB SSD. And that’s really the only difference.
Both models have a 5-30 watt AMD processor with 8 Zen 4 CPU cores and 12 RDNA 3 GPU compute units, 16GB of LPDDR5-x7500 memory, and a user-replaceable M.2 2242 PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid state drive.
Other features include two USB4 ports, a microSD card reader and 3.5mm audio jack, support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, stereo speakers, dual microphones, and a 49.2 Wh battery.
The detachable controllers have hall effect joystick sensors and six customizable buttons, in addition to the usual buttons and triggers. You can also use the right joystick like a vertical mouse for playing first person shooters or other games where a mouse may be quicker or more accurate than joysticks.
