If you purchased a brand-new laptop before, then you already know the excitement of unpacking a laptop, you already know the feel and smell of a brand new laptop. Perhaps all laptops look great at first, but its only after consistent use you learn about if your decision to spend thousands of your hard dollars was well worth it.
Surely, there are countless gaming laptop review related websites, but most of them just test the game play and specs (which obviously is important to know before you buy a laptop). However, no other laptop review website can show you the other, dark-side, which consists of laptops with problems.
Meaning, our team here at The Electronic Fix laptop repair experts in Brisbane Australia sees the other side of gaming laptops, because when our valued clients get us to fix their laptop problems in Brisbane Queensland we can tell you exactly which laptop brand is based on quality and which parts usually need replacement. After all, you’re going to use your new laptop for at least 3 years, right? So, let’s begin.
Gaming Laptops for Australian Gamers
We don’t usually think of Lenovo laptops when it comes to gaming, usually its Dell Alienware, Asus or HP Omen that comes to mind. But since introducing Legion 5 Series both with Intel and Legion 5 Gen 6 17″ AMD Ryzen™ processor version, Lenovo has really geared up with the latest Legion 7i Gen 6 gaming laptops.
Some new game titles in 2022 are created to be enjoyed only using RTX Graphics Cards. Because more and more games are built using Ray Tracing Rendering technology. Latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs is needed for you to say "hey, I bought a gaming laptop in 2022" anything less is like shooting your own leg as opposed to your opponents.
Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 6 Review for Gaming in 2022
Inspired by the demands of ever-evolving world of online gaming, Lenovo launched its Legion 7i series, and the latest model Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 6 16″ 11th Gen Intel with upgrade option for i9-11980HK CPU is sure to bring Lenovo to the par with well known gaming laptop brands. Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 6 does have the internal components any die-hard gamer needs to play the latest games and have the winning edge performance over other gamers.
Sleek, modern, and powerful, Legion 7i features Lenovo’s signature colour storm grey. As the laptop powers up quickly, shockingly vibrant RGB lighting covers the keyboard and lights up the logo at the back too, attracting every eye in the room towards you. With Legion 7i’s whole body made of aluminium-magnesium alloy, giving it a luxurious, high-end look as well. Efficient, practical, and also pretty, I think you already won.
Legion 7i series features Windows 10 and or Windows 11 Operating System with additional Intel programs like Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), Dynamic Tuning and Improved Adaptix Tech. With a RAM of 32GB, storage of 1TB, and a processing speed ranging up to 2.9 to 5GHZ with 11th Generation Intel i7 (option to upgrade to i9), Lenovo 7i series laptops has the best in class computational power required by the latest games in 2022.
Price for Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 6 16″Laptop
Base model price currently is $3699 (including GST and delivery if ordered online) and high-end version costs $4599 dollars with RTX 3080 16GB. But if you want everything with the lot, then, the price for Legion 7i Gen 6 16″ gaming laptop with full specs goes up to $6871
This price range is one of the most expensive laptop prices we’ve seen in Australia (surpassing most expensive gaming laptops such as Dell Alienware gaming laptops). Perhaps the cost is justified considering what Lenovo Legion 7i has packed in this laptop.
For example: just imagine you get us to build a stunning looking best of the best gaming Desktop PC for you here in Brisbane.

Especially due to the global shortage of Graphic Cards in the year 2022 the cost for high-end gaming computers won’t be cheap. But remember, we’re talking about the best technology available in the world, and you get what you pay for when it comes to laptop computers too.

Ports – Connectors – Display in Legion 7i
All the latest laptops has the needed ports (USB-Type C, power input, Ethernet, HDMI port) but what differs the Legion Series is 1 x Thunderbolt 4 / USB4 40Gbps that support data transfer, Power Delivery 100W and DisplayPort 1.4. This means faster operations and ability to take advantage of the latest technology.
Legion 7i has a bold design with an infinite 16-inch matte display WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolution with G-Sync. It is impressive for such an advanced laptop that holds the monster power of revolutionising the gaming world as we know it. With the brightness levels reaching as high as 500 nits, you get an ease of use indoors and outdoors, and the matte display reduces reflection and contrast lights.
As a cherry on top, Lenovo went all in and spared no expense in this gaming laptop by adding Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Graphic Processor Unit, winning the hearts and minds of content creators and gamers alike. Also, the arrow keys are a bit isolated from the rest of the keyboard, meaning, you don’t need to fear pressing the wrong button while immersed in playing.
Legion 7i is like a PC and Xbox combined into one. With an amazingly affordable monthly price, you get to play more than a hundred exclusive games with free 1 month access to Xbox Game Pass. All for one, and one for all.

As all gamers know, when you game hard in the heat of the battle, despite taking precautions such as using high-end Laptop Coolers, temperature and heat becomes a problem with gaming laptops. With its dual fan design, heat expelling vents underneath the keyboard and an exhaust system spontaneously working with its revolutionary AI-optimised process ‘Coldfront 3.0’ heat becomes less of an issue in this laptop.
