Lenovo Legion Go: A New Gaming Handheld with Impressive Features

Lenovo has recently announced the release of its new gaming handheld device, the Legion Go. This device is designed to address the shortcomings of its competitors, offering a mix of familiar and innovative features that are sure to appeal to gamers.

One notable aspect of the Legion Go is its pricing. Priced at $699, it offers a competitive package with an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, AMD RDNA 3 Graphics, 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of SSD storage, and an 8.8-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The pricing matches that of the Asus ROG Ally and is $50 more expensive than the top-end Steam Deck. Lenovo has suggested that a more affordable base model may be available in the future.

In terms of design, the Legion Go has a chunky build that may be polarizing for some users. Despite its size, the device feels substantial and offers a larger battery and potentially better thermals. The detachable controllers add versatility to the device, but some users may find them a bit bulky. However, the controllers can be removed, and the right one can be transformed into a lean, mean FPS machine with the help of an included magnetic controller base.

The Legion Go is slightly heavier and larger than its competitors, weighing in at 30.1 ounces and featuring dimensions of 11.8 x 5.2 x 1.6 inches. It is made mostly of plastic, with top bumpers made of brushed silver aluminum and rear triggers made of glossy black plastic. The device also includes symmetrical joysticks with RGB backlighting and various buttons and ports, including USB-C ports, volume and power buttons, an audio jack, and a microSD slot for expandable storage.

Overall, the Lenovo Legion Go appears to be a promising gaming handheld device that offers impressive features and a competitive price. It remains to be seen how it performs in extended gaming sessions, but initial impressions are positive. Gamers looking for a portable gaming solution should keep an eye on the Legion Go when it launches in October.
