Lenovo Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023) review – it receives the 175W RTX 4000 treatment too


With a familiar design, but all-new hardware, the Lenovo Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023) shows us that you don’t need to get a super bulky device in order to get the maximum power. In fact, this particular machine can be found in configurations with one of the most powerful mobile hardware there is in existence right now.

The first pleasant surprise was when we found the vapor chamber inside. Can you guess what the second was? Well, when we tested the device and figured out that the cooling system does a damn good job.

Could that mean that the end of bulky notebooks is here? Highly unlikely. After all, the experience here was a bit uncomfortable, when we tried extracting the full potential of the hardware. The two fans were spinning really fast, producing a lot of noise, while the keyboard did heat up to quite high values, at small places.

Another setback here is the battery life. Although the notebook is equipped with a 99.9Wh battery, it got us through less than 7 hours of Web browsing, or about 6 hours of video playback.

On a brighter note, Lenovo has given this notebook a very high-quality shell. Its keyboard and touchpad are very comfortable to use, while the optional Full HD Web camera can be used for Tobii Horizon head tracking.

Lenovo Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023)’s IPS panel has a 2560×1600 resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. The tall aspect ratio provides more vertical workspace, while the lack of PWM in brightness adjustment means that long gaming sessions will be more comfortable.

This notebook’s display covers 98% of the sRGB color gamut and features accurate color representation thanks to our Gaming and Web design profile. Furthermore, the 240Hz refresh rate has quick pixel response times. This ensures a really smooth image, even in fast-paced games.

Now, how many laptops do you know that have a total of 6 USB ports? Well, this one does, and one of them is a Thunderbolt 4 connector. The absence of an SD card reader is disappointing, but not unexpected, given the history of Legion devices in recent years.

All in all, the Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023) is a really good gaming machine. As with every other laptop out there, it has its downsides, one of which is its price. However, it is probably the most down-to-earth-looking gaming notebook in this segment of the market.
