Celebrating the new year always brings in renewed vigor and energy to face the challenges ahead. This 2021, people will still be adjusting to the new normal brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in working and studying at home. Fortunately, personal computers help keep the world going even under quarantine. But when faced with multiple projects and deadlines, students and employees alike may find that a standard, mainstream laptop for general home use cannot always keep up with current demands. Global technology and innovation leader Lenovo suggests utilizing gaming PCs instead, as they have the performance needed to power through 2021 and beyond.
Gaming PCs are more than capable of bolstering productivity through components such as a dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU) or graphics card, better memory and storage capacity, and the latest processors. Lenovo, through its dedicated gaming sub-brand Legion, offers its newest gaming lineup with devices that transcend both personal and professional use.
The dedicated graphics cards in the devices allow users to see and render images and videos to the highest quality with ease, making the job of digital artists more seamless than ever. Adding to this exceptional performance are the enhanced memory and solid-state drive (SSD) storage options that allow programs to run quickly and simultaneously without any hiccups, as well as the latest Intel and AMD processors that unlock other features for more intensive work tasks. Furthermore, the new Legion devices are sleeker and lighter than ever, allowing them to fit right in even in corporate settings.
“We purposely designed and developed our new Legion lineup not only for gamers but also with today’s workforce in mind. With current business demands, it’s no longer enough for devices to only run basic office applications and the usual day-to-day tasks. As the world of work evolves — and at a rapid pace at that, we want to equip professionals with devices that can help them adapt and excel in multiple scenarios,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager.
That said, Lenovo made some recommendations of Legion gaming PCs ideal for different professions to complement everyone’s renewed vigor in facing new challenges this 2021.
· For online entrepreneurs/business owners – IdeaPad Gaming 3i (now starts at PHP 43,995)
Online businesses are booming amid the COVID-19 pandemic and for those wanting to set up shop, Legion recommends the IdeaPad Gaming 3i. Through its up to 10th-generation Intel processor and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti dedicated graphics card, the IdeaPad Gaming 3i assures business owners that they can easily run all the applications they need to reach growth and success. Bolstering the completion of tasks further are the up to 16GB DDR4 memory and either up to 1TB NVME PCIe SSD or 2TB HDD storage options.
· For content creators (vloggers, graphic designers, photographers, video editors, animators, and layout artists) – Legion 5Pi (now starts at PHP 67,995)
Producing picture-perfect images and videos is critical for digital artists today to stand out. To help achieve this, Lenovo has the Legion 5Pi notebook that comes with a 15-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) 1080p display with up to a 144Hz refresh rate and 500nits of brightness for high quality and vivid images and videos without tearing. The display is also a VESA-certified high dynamic range (VESA DisplayHDR 400) screen that comes with 100% sRGB color accuracy, making it perfect for more realistic visualization of images while editing photos and videos.
· For musicians – Legion 7i (now starts at PHP 99,995)
With the ongoing global pandemic making recording sessions difficult, musicians need a home studio setup to continue making music. For the centerpiece of the studio, Lenovo recommends its flagship notebook Legion 7i. Its specifications not only make it the new Legion lineup’s most powerful notebook for gaming but also produce the best audio through its Dolby Atmos Speaker system. It’s specifically made to provide cinema-like sound quality and contains tools that musicians can utilize to get the perfect pitch and sound.
