    The first leaks of Lenovo's updated Legion lineup for 2022 have surfaced so let's start a new discussion thread.

    Lenovo Legion 5 Pro gaming laptop with Intel Alder Lake/AMD Rembrandt leaks ahead of CES 2022 - VideoCardz.com

    The revised logo on the lid of the 5 Pro looks much better than its predecessor, though I still prefer the less conspicuous Legion branding on the 7 and non-Pro 5. I'm also digging the rounded corners of the new 5. Hopefully it will continue to be available in that really nice blue color that they introduced last year.

    I honestly never thought I would consider Lenovo to be one of my first picks for a laptop after all the work I had to do on the y510p/y410p platforms but everything else just doesnt make much sense to me, not saying they dont make sense to others, just to not to me.

    Really only thing I would probably change is the touchpad but there is always the one thing that reminds you perfection doesnt exist lol.

    These also have the MUX switch to I presume? I remember they basically said everything going forward would have one iirc

    Looking forward to the 2022 Legion 7 with its 1000 nit mini-LED panel. The one thing that I had wished the 2021 had the Alienware M15 R5's colour accuracy (140% sRGB, 99% Adobe RGB/DCI-P3) and better response time. Of course, everything else on the Legion is better but the panel is most definitely superior so I am hoping that the change to mini-LED also comes with some other improvements to the panel.

    If they removed those diagonal lines on the new 5 Pro it would be even better. I still don't like the branding / styling on them and prefer the regular 5 and 7 designs.

    I looked at the photos of the 5 Pro 2022 version comparing them with those of the current model and it seems to me that they removed a USB 3.2 Gen1 from the rear but added a USB-C on the left side and moved the audio jack from left to right.
    I don't know if removing an USB port on the back made it possible to increase the rear ventilation grilles, which wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Agreed.

    But it is an improvement from its predecessor.

    I heard the Ryzen 6000 series will support Thunderbolt along with PCIe 4.0 which a good thing to keep up with Intel. Hopefully the prices wont be too bad.

    A November 2021 update of the specs pdf for the Legion 7i Gen 6 shows two mini-LED options, a 1000-nit one and a 1250-nit one, and the notebookcheck.net article on the Exploration Edition indicates that the 1250-nit one is used in that edition, so at CES both may be announced as options for Gen 7.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll keep that open on my phone so I remember to check it.

    I'm still debating whether to pick up a bargain now or wait until the new Intel and Ryzen chips etc drop.

    I sold my Alienware M15 last year and missed having a gaming laptop. Picked a 3070 Razer Blade 14 on Black Friday. It's a great little laptop and I loved it's portability, but the keyboard isn't amazing to type on and I was concerned about future battery issues (if you read the Razer subreddit for a few days, you'd be scared off too).

    Hopefully companies like Lenovo will post a release schedule so we have an ideas as to when newly announced laptops will be available
