The Lenovo Legion Go is now available for pre-order in Malaysia, and it looks like the handheld gaming PC is set to start shipping earlier. While the Legion Go shares similar hardware as its main competitor, the Asus ROG Ally, Lenovo’s offering does have some unique features, including detachable controllers.
Previously, the Legion Go’s shipping time for the Malaysian market was estimated to be between eight to 10 weeks’ time. We did a quick check on the product listing again today, and it is now set to start shipping within six to eight weeks. Still quite a long shipping time, but at least it’s getting expedited.
Anyway, two variants of the Legion Go are offered in Malaysia. The base model features an AMD Ryzen Z1 chip for RM3,099, while the more powerful Ryzen Z1 Extreme configuration retails at RM3,399. Beyond the different chips, both variants of the Legion Go feature the same hardware.
These include a sharp 8.8-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, along with a 49.2Wh battery. Aside from that, there’s also the detachable “Legion TrueStrike” controllers of the Legion Go, which is similar to the Nintendo Switch‘s Joy-Con controllers.
Once detached from the main body of the handheld PC, the right controller can be used as a mouse once it 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 runs on Windows 11 out of the box too.
The Lenovo Legion Go is now available for pre-order in Malaysia through Lenovo Malaysia’s online store from RM3,099. As highlighted on the product page, early birds can get a screen protector for the handheld gaming PC as an add-on for only RM1.
