Laptops tend to get really hot under heavy load, especially under intense gaming at high resolution. The default method of cooling is by pushing air through the system. However, Lenovo took it further by ensuring that the cooling system on its Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) not only cools but cools reliably and efficiently by adopting liquid cooling. And I am fascinated but how it does it.

Now, liquid cooling is not new but what sets Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) apart is that it does so without the need for an external pump. Yup. You heard that right. This little guy has a complete liquid-cooling system built into it. Cooling is not only what it’s good at, though.

The Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8) is a high-powered gaming laptop that boasts impressive hardware, including a powerful 13th-Gen Intel Core i9 processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU, and fast RAM options.

When you are pushing the laptop super hard, the innovative Legion Coldfront liquid-cooling system, co-engineered with Cooler Master, affords it to deliver peak performance while staying cool during intense gaming sessions.

The laptop features a stunning Mini-LED display with a high refresh rate, per-unit factory color calibration, and ample storage. The AI-powered Lenovo LA-2 chip optimizes performance, syncs RGB lighting, and adds gearless head tracking for immersion.

It offers a large battery, Windows 11, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, Nahimic 3D audio, and customizable performance controls through Lenovo Vantage. Optional Lenovo Premium Care support is also available.

Oh, did we mention that in order to shave some weight to compensate for the increase in heft brought about by the custom liquid cooling system, Lenovo implemented a new A-cover made from forged carbon chips and every Lenovo Legion 9i has its own unique forged carbon chip pattern on the A-cover? Sweet.

Speaking of weight, there is a price to pay for such a cool (pun intended) device. It tips the scales at 2.56 kilograms (5.64 lbs) or more, depending on the configurations.
