To clear confusion systems denoted with “i” represents ones using an Intel CPU, while the ones that have AMD in brackets represent systems that use AMD configurations.
As you can see, most of the systems are using Intel CPUs, and most of the systems that use AMD CPUs will be released after the Intel ones have been released. Some of the systems will also not release in North America, and Lenovo did not state their pricing or availability.
Legion Y740Si is the lightest and thinnest laptop, weighing 3.74 pounds. It comes with a 4K display, and it is powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i9 Comet Lake-H processor.
All the unveiled laptops are pretty fast for most people. Most of the other laptops also come with a 1080P resolution.
Lenovo also unveiled desktop PCs, Legion Tower 5 (AMD), and Legion Tower 5i, but the company did not go deep into their features. However, it stated that they provide high performance, and they will be offered with up to a GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU.
Finally, Lenovo unveiled a few peripherals that include Legion M600 wireless gaming mouse, Legion Y25-25 monitor (24.5-inch, IPS, Full HD, 240Hz) Legion K300 RGB gaming keyboard, Legion M300 gaming mouse, and the BootStation eGPU that will be available as of May 2020 starting at US$249.99 by itself, or bundled with a Radeon RX 5700 XT or GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card.
