In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

So, the most sought off devices come with the highest TGPs. In the case of the Legon 7 this year, Lenovo was very confident. Not only do the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 come in 130W and 140W variants, respectively. But the top tier model - the one that comes with the RTX 3080, has a TGP of 165W. Well, the manufacturer clearly has something in its sleeve, right? Right! Similarly to last year's model, this year's device is equipped with a vapor chambe[...]

Remove the bottom plate To take this laptop apart, you first need to remove the bottom panel. Undo 10 Phillips-head screws, and pry the panel out of your way. 2. Battery Inside, we see an 80Wh battery pack. 3. Мemory and storage There are two M.2 PCIe x4 slots for storage upgrades. Memory-wise, you get two SODIMM slots, hidden beneath a metal shroud.
