Lenovo Legion 7i[/caption] It’s not all work in Lenovo’s lineup. The Legion series of laptops are made for gaming. Players will find the latest Intel Core 14th Gen i9 14900HX processors on the Lenovo Legion 7i. All Lenovo Legion Series laptops are available with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics that feature NVIDIA’s RTX AI upscaling for faster framerates, AI-powered Max-Q technology to optimize performance and efficiency, supercharging gaming as well as creative and productivity tasks. New for this year is the Lenovo Legion Coldfront Hyper thermal solution. The fans in the thermal solution spin in opposite directions, pushing hot air out of the rear of the chassis while pulling cold air in from the back middle. The Hyperchamber in the middle, which is hermetically sealed from open air, keeps cold and hot air separate, increasing heat exchange and keeping the laptops’ hardware cooler and the framerates higher. This results in a net increase of up to 25W TDP in Extreme Mode for a max output of 175W TDP on the Lenovo Legion 7i, while keeping the keyboard cooler and more comfortable even under heavy processor loads. All Lenovo gaming PCs come with three free months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, giving players access to hundreds of high-quality games on PC, console and cloud.  [caption id="attachment_178680" align="alignnone" width="1024"]

The processors, ready to tackle a new future with AI computing, deliver optimal performance by maximizing resources and assigning the best activities to the right programs. Designed for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) looking to harness the capabilities of AI without heavy investments or equipment, the 3.6L desktop maximizes internal space, packing up to Intel Core i9 processor on an Intel vPro Enterprise platform, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 GPU, an easy to upgrade independent NPU card, up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM and more. Whether taking advantage of the AI capabilities to generate programming codes, creating images to reduce designer workload, crafting a jingle using an offline AI audio generator, conducting AI-driven live streaming, or collaborating with VR headsets to help enterprises with remote maintenance in the automobile and the manufacturing sectors, the ThinkCentre neo Ultra is here to change how companies create, collaborate and think. A triple thermal fan design draws cool air from the top and expels it from the bottom back to keep the desktop cool even under the most intense pressure.
