Lenovo Legion 7 (Gen 6) review: The AMD system adds battery life and costs less, but it lacks some features

Lenovo supplied Windows Central with a review unit of the sixth-gen Lenovo Legion 7. It has inside an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX octa-core processor (CPU), 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-3200MHz RAM, a 1TB M.2 PCIe 3.0 solid-state drive (SSD), and an NVIDIA RTX 3080 Laptop graphics card (GPU), the mobile version of our pick for best graphics card. You can also get this laptop with NVIDIA RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Laptop GPUs, as well as AMD's Ryzen 7 5800H CPU.

Lenovo Legion 7 (Gen 6) review: The AMD system adds battery life and costs less, but it lacks some features

There is just one 16-inch display option available for the Legion 7 AMD model. It has a 16:10 aspect ratio, 2560x1600 (QHD+) resolution, Dolby Vision, DisplayHDR 400, and more. This exact review model currently costs about $2,650 at Lenovo. A similar Legion 7i (Gen 6) model with Intel Core i9-11980HK, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and NVIDIA RTX 3080 Laptop GPU costs about $2,910 at Lenovo.

Models start at about $1,440 at Lenovo, which lands you the Ryzen 7 CPU, RTX 3060 Laptop GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD. Lenovo's official site has the best configuration options — you can sort of build your own laptop as budget allows — though you can also find pre-configured models at third-party retailers like Amazon and Newegg.

Following are the exact specifications as found in my review unit.
