    How low would you expect the new Ryzen based Gaming sets to go?
    to the extreme to wipeout competitions @500USD? or give in a little @600USD? or competition encouraging 700USD?
    Dude... you're looking at game-book man... Not typical notebooks with the usual U type CPUs without GPU.
    Look at the 9th Gen Intel based Legion Game-Books that are going on "sale" thru Lenovo sites around the globe, is there really "clearance price" u see competitive to the new release?
    Certainly, we can argue that by the time these R7000 Ryzen based Legion is available globally, the price will certainly be higher than what the Mainland Chinese gets. However, don't forget, what they're getting now are fixed spec'ed goods. We could be getting customizable ones elsewhere when production is stable.

    These arent gaming laptops for sure. The 1650 made sure of that. And with 799-899 laptops rocking the 1660ti these would be poor value for gaming.

    As a creator only laptop these could be a compelling buy though that'll depend on how good/bad the display on these are.

    Like it or not, these GTX1### with different variants such as ti, maxp, maxq or whatsoever Nvidia can juice out to be, are considerably non-workstantion grade entry-level gaming GPUs. And whatever products that fitted with these are considerably low entry to mid low spec’ed laptops.
    Yeah... I know, u’re advance/intermediate player level, and such spec will be a letdown to our status if u’re buying one... :D

    The Legion 5(AMD) is now available in Canada, US, and selected Asian Lenovo websites as customizable.
    However do take note that the 2nd Storage Drive is by default, un-removable as there isn't removal option available even if you chose just to have the 1st Storage Drive installed or removed.

    Note that the 1st Storage Drive, NVMESSD have to be chosen to get the battery upsized to 80whr type.
    Refer to the image below for better understanding
    [​IMG]
    If you choose to have a mechanical HDD installed into the 1st Storage Drive, the default battery size sticks to the initial default package of 60whr.
    If you choose to have the 1st Storage Drive stays vacant for future self upgrade, the battery size sticks to the initial default package of 60whr.

    Even for creators they're still not worth the price

    Its best to wait until the 2nd half of the year until more options are released

    there are reviews done on the 7i,by reviewers from China. Just that i can't find one with proper Chinese subtitles in YouTube that allows international viewers to use the Auto-Translate funtion from the YouTube player.

    In terms of cooling, there appear to be 4 types of thermal systems for certain GPU options

    Thermal C 81YT VC 2070/80MAXQ

    Thermal C 81YT VC 2070

    Thermal C 81YT HP 2060

    Thermal C 81YT HP 1160TI

    So the GTX GPUs and RTX 2060 get Heat Pipes (HP?)

    And the 2070 and super max-q GPUs get vapour chambers
