Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) Begins Shipping in August 2023

Lenovo Legion Slim 5

The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) will begin shipping in August, becoming available in select markets around the world starting September.1  First introduced in March, this is the first 14-inch gaming laptop in the Legion ecosystem. Featuring up to AMD Ryzen™ 9 7940HS processors and up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4060 Laptop GPUs, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) laptop can be pushed to its limits through Lenovo’s AI Engine+, which harnesses the Lenovo LA1 AI chip to track key components and processes to maximize performance and battery life, growing more intelligent over time as it adapts to user habits.

The most portable PC in the Lenovo Legion lineup with a redesigned TrueStrike keyboard

The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) was engineered for more than just performance. It was designed to also meet gamers’ demand for an ultra-portable yet powerful gaming device with jaw-dropping visuals – catering to the dynamic, on-the-go lifestyles of Lenovo Legion fans who may begin their days as students or creators and end them as gamers. In fact, the new 14-inch size available in Storm Grey required a complete redesign of its keyboard to fit the smaller form factor. Lenovo Legion has been known for the extreme quality and typing comfort of its TrueStrike keyboard, and the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8)’s keyboard is no exception. This is evident in the inclusion of dedicated PgUp and PgDn keys into the enlarged arrow key cluster, but with key spacing that is more optimized for quicker, more accurate inputs while gaming. Combined with the 1.5mm key travel and an understated white backlight, the keyboard on the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) delivers the responsiveness and comfort that Lenovo TrueStrike keyboards are known for.

Lenovo Legion’s first OLED display and ColdFront 5.0 thermals deliver beautiful, lightning-fast frames

Beyond being Lenovo Legion’s first 14-inch gaming laptop, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) also holds the title of the first laptop in the Lenovo Legion ecosystem to boast a 16:10 WQXGA+ (2880 x 1800) OLED display. This gives gamers new levels of immersion with 100% DCI-P3 color and a 120Hz variable refresh rate that allows its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics with AI-powered DLSS 3 and full ray tracing to truly shine. Coupled with up to 32GB of 6400MHz LPDDR5X RAM2,3, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) is blazing fast.

While the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) is smaller than its 16-inch sibling, it is by no means less powerful, equipped with the same ColdFront 5.0 thermal technology that keeps all Lenovo Legion laptops cool while they pump out frames, including a massive 12V dual liquid crystal polymer fan system and hybrid copper heat pipes. And with a 73.6Whr battery with Super Rapid Charge Pro4 technology and up-to-140W USB-C charging, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) is ready for all-day play5.

Every Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (14”, 8) laptop with Windows 11 comes with three months of free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate6,7 with hundreds of high-quality games, with new games added all the time. There’s also Nahimic by SteelSeries 3D immersive audio, and Lenovo Vantage to help users get the most out of their machines. Offering peace of mind, Lenovo’s Legion Ultimate Support8 service is available with round-the-clock tech support, guidance8 and assistance so gamers don’t have to miss a beat. And with Legion Arena, users can create their ultimate gaming hub with all their titles accessible in one place rather than having to switch between apps.
