Lenovo Legion Go Is a Switch-Like Handheld Gaming PC for $699

Lenovo just announced a competitor to the Asus ROG Ally and Valve’s Steam Deck. Aptly dubbed Lenovo Legion Go, it shares similar hardware as Asus’ offering, though it does have some unique features, including detachable controllers. Yes, much like the Nintendo Switch with its Joy-Con.

The “Legion TrueStrike” controllers, once detached from the main body of the Legion Go, can supposedly be used as a mouse once the right controller is (magnetically) attached to an included controller base. Of course, the handheld gaming PC also has a kickstand at the back to prop it up.

Naturally, the Legion Go also runs on Windows 11 out of the box.

Under the hood, the Legion Go is quite capable. Just like the ROG Ally, it is configurable with an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme chip. It also has a sharp 8.8-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, along with a 49.2Wh battery. That’s quite a bit bigger than the 40Wh battery of the Ally.

The Lenovo Legion Go is set to be available in selected markets sometime in November 2023. Retailing from $699 (about RM3,250), it’s priced quite competitively as well. No word yet on its Malaysian availability, unfortunately enough.
