Yoga 9i, Legion 5, ThinkBook Plus Gen 3: Lenovo unveils the 2022 vintage of its laptops

On the occasion of CES 2022, Lenovo presented many new products in its Legion, Think and Yoga ranges. Among the most interesting, we find the Yoga 9i, a convertible with 4K OLED screen and Bower & Wilkins speakers, the Legion 5 Pro and 5i Pro, gaming laptop with GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 240 Hz screen, or the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 with its 8-inch secondary screen.

After Dell with the XPS 13 Plus, Asus with the ROG and Zephyrus or even MSI with the Ventus and Aero, it’s Lenovo’s turn to present its novelties. The Chinese group presented a wide range of IT products at the CES 2022 which is being held this week in Las Vegas. All ranges were represented. Laptops. Accessories. Screens. And all types of users as well (general public, gamers and professionals), distributed as always over the three ranges Yoga, Think and Legion. This represents a large fifteen products.

Lenovo unveils new PCs for the Think, Legion and Yoga lines

In this article, we’ll brush through all of the announcements and focus on a small selection of the platforms that we think are the most interesting. And we start with the Yoga range where you find three convertible PCs: Yoga 9i, Yoga 7i and Yoga 6. These three PCs will arrive in France between April and June 2022. And they will cost from 1400 euros, 1100 euros and 900 euros, respectively.

The first is clearly the most interesting, because it offers a very nice multimedia configuration in a fairly small and light footprint. 14 inch OLED screen with definition 4K, 60 Hz refresh and DCI-P3 colorimetry. Core i7-1260P processor, 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD in its best configuration. Four loudspeakers (two boxes and two tweeters) signed Bower & Wilkins. Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos compatibility. 75 Wh battery. An ideal PC for entertainment on the go.

The Yoga 7i is available in a version 14 and 16 inches. Their screens are different depending on the size: 2.8K OLED for the first, 2.5K LCD for the second. Both versions go up to Core i7 and up to 1TB of SSD storage. Yoga 6 is available in a 13 inch only, with Full HD + display, Ryzen 7 5700U processor, 59Wh battery, up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage.

Lenovo integrates GeForce RTX 3070 Ti into Legion laptops

Let’s continue with the Legions. In this range intended for gamers, Lenovo presented four models: Legion 5i Pro, Legion 5 Pro, Legion 5i and Legion 5. As always, the “i” models differ in the nature of their platforms: Core i + GeForce for the “i” and AMD for the “non-i”, quite simply. Starting prices for Legion 5 range from 1200 euros to 1700 euros. And their commercial launch is expected in March 2022.

Let’s focus a little on the Pro versions of its Legion 5. Besides an update of the processors (Core i7-12700H or Ryzen 9 6900HX), these computers can benefit (for a fee) from a nice GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. This will be perfect for playing last in excellent conditions. Note that all the configurations integrate a GeForce RTX series 30. In addition, the Legion 5 Pro and 5i Pro benefit from a new chassis made with aluminum and magnesium. The result: computers are lighter than their predecessors. You will also find a 16-inch WQHD + 240 Hz screen and an 80 Wh battery.

Legions 5 and 5i are wiser. You will find Core i7 and Ryzen 7, GeForce RTX 30 (up to 3070 Ti), a 15-inch WQHD screen or even an 80 Wh battery. Emphasis has been placed on noise reduction, whether in terms of ventilation or keystrokes.

Lenovo unveils ThinkBook with 8-inch secondary display

Let’s finish with the Think. In it, we find three ranges. The first is the ThinkPad Z (available in 13 and 16 inches) which give pride of place to recycled materials, such as aluminum or vegan leather. You will also find screens with very thin borders and a good-sized trackpad. The second product line is the ThinkPad X1, one of the variations of which is reversible and is based on an OLED touch screen.

And the last range concerns the ThinkBook. Four variations were presented, the most interesting of which is the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 with its secondary screen of 8 inch positioned to the right of the keyboard which is used to display additional information, shortcuts or even a tab or an independent application. A small permanent Twitter or RSS feed for journalists, a calculator for accountants, etc. Hope this will be a good idea.
