Lenovo’s BEST Gaming Laptop? Legion 9i Review

80% Lenovo Legion 9i Gen 8 Review
Source: PC Mag English EN→zh-CN
The Lenovo Legion 9i is meant as a top-end flagship showcase for enthusiasts, and on that, it delivers. You'll find flashier designs in this price tier—Razer’s all-metal build in a similarly sized laptop like the Blade 16, or monstrous 18-inch machines—but this is a well-thought-out laptop. The chassis is trim for a 16-inch powerhouse, the lid is unique, and bespoke liquid cooling takes performance to the next level. Value is hardly the key factor in the premium price tier, but even then, it should be said you can easily find much less expensive ways to attain similar performance. When paired with a design that’s high-end, but not best in class, that fact may lead you to spend your small fortune on a different luxury machine. Even though you won't find many downsides to the Legion 9i (beyond the cost), it’s not a runaway in a competitive category but rather has enough to be among your top considerations.

Lenovo Legion 9i Gen 8 (16, Intel) review – hands down, so much power inside a thin chassis
Source: Laptop Media English EN→zh-CN
The biggest advantage of the Lenovo Legion 9i Gen 8 (16″, Intel) is the compact dimensions (for a top-tier gaming laptop) combined with high-end hardware. It’s not a heavy 30 mm 18-incher – it weighs a bit over 2.5 kilos and has a profile under 19 mm. You get only top-of-the-line hardware including the Intel Core i9-13980HX and you can get one of the two most powerful NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPUs with 175W TGPs. Speaking of which, the performance of this device is expectedly great. It feels blazing fast for casual tasks such as Web browsing, social media, or watching YouTube videos. The capable hybrid cooling solution allows good CPU clock and power limits under load as well as 174W GPU TGP after half an hour of gaming. The temperature of both chips is always under control.

100% Lenovo Legion 9i Review: Can A Gaming Laptop This Expensive Ever Be Worth Its Price?
Source: Slashgear English EN→zh-CN
Many expensive high-end laptops fall within the so-called "desktop replacement" category, yet most fall somewhat short of that aspirational title. The Lenovo Legion 9i is the first laptop I've tested which can replace a comparable desktop with no compromises, and which actually makes me reluctant to go back to using my recently constructed gaming PC. While there are a few nitpicks to be leveled against the Legion 9i, they pale so much in comparison to everything it gets right that such meager cons become almost irrelevant. Giving a 10/10 score to any product is not something to be taken lightly, but here anything less would be a disservice to the Legion 9i. In the past, I'd have hesitated to recommend spending so much money on a laptop, but the Legion 9i has made this class of extravagant portable computer a reasonable and practical purchase — if you can afford it.

80% Lenovo Legion 9i review: The RTX 4090 laptop that set a world record
Source: Mashable English EN→zh-CN
Anecdotally, yes, the self-contained liquid cooler system works in that the deck remained cool while I played Cyberpunk 2077 – and it stayed quiet, too. However, I feel that the Legion 9i's price tag, which climbs over $4,000, is a little too high. You can get the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 16, which is packed with the same specs as our review unit, for several hundred dollars less ($3,340). I'm not convinced the integrated cooling system is worth an extra $664. Prime Big Deals Day is behind us, but Black Friday is on the horizon. If you can afford to wait a few weeks, see if Lenovo slashes the Legion 9i to a sub-$3,000 price tag. If not, snag the ROG Strix Scar 16 instead.

100% Lenovo’s Legion 9i is a 10. Here’s why it beats every other gaming laptop
Source: Digital Trends English EN→zh-CN
I’ve reviewed a ton of gaming laptops, many of which fall into the category of desktop replacement and cost over $3,000. I’ve never reviewed a gaming laptop that actually felt worth that price, though. There was always a catch, and it felt like you were paying for the diminishing returns of high-end hardware. The Lenovo Legion 9i is an exception. It’s the first high-end laptop I’ve ever touched that truly feels worth its premium price point. It focuses on being a good laptop as much as it focuses on peak performance, and it exceeds on both fronts. There are a couple of very minor cons here. First, the trackpad is a bit too small, and that’s probably my biggest issue with the Legion 9i. The color accuracy out of the box isn’t great, either, but I’ll take that given the incredible HDR experience the display offers. That’s the most I can come up with, and those are very minor complaints wen you take into account how much else the Legion 9i has to offer.

2023 Lenovo Legion 9i Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Legion 9i, Lenovo’s new high end 16.3” Legion gaming laptop adds all the high end features you might have previously pined for in this family of high performance, fairly priced portable gaming and content creation mobile PCs. The Legion 9i has a 16.3” 3.2K mini LED display with G-Sync, an Intel Core i9-13980HK, NVIDIA RTX 4080 / RTX 4090, a hybrid vapor chamber and water cooled design, metal chassis and RGB everywhere. Thunderbolt 4, a 1080p webcam, full size SD card slot and a forged carbon fiber lid are standard, as are both a compact 330 watt charger and 140 watt USB-C travel charger. It competes directly with the Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 and indirectly with larger high performance laptops like the Alienware m18.

2023 Lenovo Legion 9i – mini LED, RTX 4090, water cooling
Source: Ultrabook Review English EN→zh-CN
The Lenovo Legion 9i is expected in stores around October, starting at 4399 USD in the US, and probably around 5000 EUR in this part of the world. That’s most likely for a top-specced configuration with the i9-13980HX processor, 32 GB of RAM, 2 TB of storage, the RTX 4090 dGPU, and the mini LED display. There won’t be lesser specced models. And there’s no AMD Ryzen 9 HX variant either. Now, that’s a lot of money for a laptop, even for a top-specced one. As of right now, early September 2023, RTX 4090 16-inch laptops are available for a wide range of prices: the Legion Pro 7i and the Alienware m16 for around 3k, the Alienware x16 for 3.3 K, the ROG Scar 16 mini LED for around 3.5K, or the Razer Blade 16 4K mini LED for 4.3K. Sure, the Lenovo Legion 9i is the new guy in town and will most likely go down in price over time.

The Lenovo Legion 9i is looking to be the premium pick of gaming laptops for the company. Outfitted with the latest in specs, it should be a performance powerhouse, complemented by an excellent ventilation system and great display.

We'll need to get the Lenovo Legion 9i into our testing lab to see what it's truly capable of, but based on what I've seen, it seems to have the makings of being an awesome (if expensive) gaming laptop. I'm especially interested in seeing what differences, if any, the liquid cooling system has on performance. We'll have a full review of the Lenovo Legion 9i laptop soon so stay tuned!
