Lenovo Legion’s latest lineup of gaming devices are ready to take on your work and play whether at home or on-the-go!
Lenovo just unveiled their 2020 roster of gaming laptops, PC, and gear at a virtual launch with the local media this April 17. And what can we say? Even after three years since the first Legion devices rolled out, the gaming brand’s slogan still sums it all up the best way there is: Stylish on the outside. Savage on the inside.
In other words, you get a smooth gaming laptop that can look cool when gaming, and still look sophisticated and professional whenever you need it to. Each of the lineup has a clean design that does not rely on loud colors and instead uses RGB lighting just on the right places to look its best. Most ports are also placed at the back part of the device to avoid an unnecessary clutter of wires when you work, while keeping one USB Type A port on each side for easy access.
But before we delve too much into details, let us introduce to you the latest generation of the Lenovo Legion laptops!
