Lenovo Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023) review – it receives the 175W RTX 4000 treatment too
Disassembly, Upgrade options, and Maintenance
Here, you need to undo 10 Phillips-head screws. After that, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool. Be careful around the side vents, as you need to pop your tool at 90 degrees.
Inside, we find a 99.9Wh battery pack. To continue, remove the two SSD coolers. Then, undo the six Phillips head screws, and unplug the battery connector.
The memory slots are hidden beneath a metal bracket. Remove it, to access the two DDR5 SODIMMs. They work with 4800MHz and 5600MHz memory modules, and support 6000MHz overclocked RAM. As for storage, you get two M.2 PCIe x4 slots for Gen 4 SSDs.
Perhaps the most impressive thing on the inside is cooling. It comprises a thick vapor chamber, four heat sinks, and two large fans.
isn’t the touchpad on the legion 7 gen 8 series mylar and not glass?
Apart from the obvious CPU, GPU, RAM upgrades, there are some features removed from the previous 2022 model:
no fingerprint reader, plastic keyboard & palm rest area vs aluminium, plastic touchpad vs glass, 1000Mbps vs 2500Mbps Ethernet, 1 vs 2 USB-C Thunderbolt port, more subtle RGB lighting + no LED for rear input ports
