    The top-spec L7 with 5900HX and RTX 3080 popped up on CDW for pre-/backorder for $2,746.99, which I believe is cheaper than what the same config would cost to order from Lenovo directly. No word on when it would ship, though.

    Lenovo Legion 7 16ACHg6 - 16" - Ryzen 9 5900HX - 32 GB RAM - 1 TB (2x) SSD - 82N6008AUS - Laptops & 2-in-1s - CDW.com

    B&H also has a listing for the Intel-powered 7i with an RTX 3070 for $2,019.99 with an estimated ship date of October 4. You can't place an order, but you can sign up to get notified when it comes into stock.

    B&H does have the base Legion 5 with R7 5800H and RTX 3060 in stock right now for $1,269.99. Only 8 GB of RAM, but you're going to want to replace that anyway.

    The AMD Legion 5 17 2021 is now up on Lenovo's US site as well. ~$1800 for the 5800H/8GB/1TB/3070 config, but there are also pre-configs for $1650. Sadly shipping is no time soon. The keyboard backlight is only white which is awesome.

    Wow, the new 7i is shipping in 4+ months, at least for US buyers!

    Welp, it's off the site again now. Not sure if that's cos it's sold out or if it's because it wasn't meant to go up so fast. For anyone who's interested, the 32 gig RAM, 1 gig ssd and 3080 was a hair over $3k.

    EDIT: I managed to order one through my founders card access, for the top end Legion 7 config (including $25 for accidental damage), the price was $2,707. This is for Ryzen 5900, 32gig, 3080, 1tb.

    I put in an order for the top spec Legion 7 model on CDW earlier today. The site went down a few minutes after I placed my order though and hasn't come back yet lol.

    I ordered a Legion 7 5900HX with the 3080, 32 GB, 1 TB config from Lenovo’s US site on Friday morning.

    When I check my order status on Lenovo’s website now it says:

    “expected to arrive” February 14, 2022.


    WTF! I sure hope they do a lot better than that. I don’t know how long I’ll wait for it to ship but it won’t be anywhere near that long.

    Damn, I'll be too old and too slow to play games by the time the 7 is available for purchase.

    On the Lenovo discord, someone pasted a chat they had with Lenovo CS wherein the CS person said that was a wrong date and would be updated within 48 hours. Here's hoping!

    If you order from Lenovo use EXTRAFIVE to save 5%. Brings the RTX 3070 with 5800H come to $2070 after taxes. No idea when it will ship. Hopefully not four months and that is just a place holder.
