Is anyone using EOS on Lenovo Legion Slim 7 (AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX-AMD Radeon RX 6800S) or Acer Zephyrus G14 (AMD Ryzen 9, AMD Radeon RX 6700S)? or similar system?
Wondering is it worth it, everything working out of the box? Or did you try any other 2021-2022 gaming laptops? They seem like beasties but very high price.
I know desktops are better, but I am looking for a work laptop, fast GPU is necessary, and graphics card for gaming in secret at home I never tried AMD Radeon on laptops and want to avoid Nvidia at all costs! Light and good battery life is a must for mobility.
I also never tried AMD GPU on laptops. I used it on desktop about ten years ago and it was pretty bad vs Intel.
Gaming wise I am planning on playing civ 6, eldenring, spell force, things like that.
Could be a good thread to discuss newest gaming laptops in general.
I went to check this lenovo and the Asus zephyrus g14 in store. The zephyrus is too small and too “pimped up” with the white color. The g15 maybe great but currently only available with Nvidia and no face camera…
The legion 7 slim is definitely a beast with Ryzen 9 and AMD GPU. It’s also strange, the youtube review said no HDMI but it’s not true, there are 2 USB C, several USB A and HDMI. It’s a dream machine! The keyboard is definitely nice, but flatter than ThinkPads. Still, this is a high quality build.
I personally like 14" laptops. Everything else is too large. Hence why i favor a desktop. The G14 comes in grey also. The legion slim all have touch screen. Don’t be confused with the slim models as they are all touch screen and as they are different than the Legion 7 slim. Slim are their own models.
I am not confused with the portable slim models… The legion slim 7 does not have touch screen even on the link you posted it says non-touch. Although in that link these are the Nvidia GPU models. There is and advantage version with AMD CPU and GPU. To my knowledge they do not come in touch screen.
I know I spent like a week on the reviews and checking them out as I never had a AMD CPU and GPU laptop. Seems there are very few high end amd models that came out this year, most laptops ship with Nvidia RTX cards.
