Believe it or not, Lenovo Legion came prepared for the stay-at-home life. In an effort to keep everyone indoors during these uncertain times, they unveil their new set of gaming laptops for all gamers. These new laptops bring all the latest and powerful gaming hardware, suited for both casual and competitive gamers. And all of these are now under a much simpler name.

Lenovo decided to keep things simpler and easier to remember with their new Legion gaming laptops. Don’t let the simpler name fool you; all these laptops bring a little bit of everything for everyone. Spearheading the new wave of gaming laptops for Lenovo Legion is the Lenovo Legion 7i. This, along with the Lenovo Legion 5i were announced a little earlier than the rest of the current lineup. Since then, Lenovo launched three new models rocking all the latest hardware.

For those who are looking for a more competitive gaming laptop, look no further to the Lenovo Legion 5Pi. This device carries with it the latest 10th-generation Intel Core H-series processors for improved performance across the board. Also, the Lenovo Legion 5Pi comes with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2060 for a more powerful gaming experience. All of these go along with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.

The Lenovo Legion 5Pi also comes with a 15-inch IPS HDR display with 240Hz refresh rate for more seamless gameplay. The display is 100% sRGB color accurate, perfect even for gamers who are also content creators themselves. You can expect to immerse yourself in your gameplay thanks to Dolby Vision and the thinner bezels.

If you’re looking for a more affordable option yet provides massive power, there is the AMD-powered Lenovo Legion 5. Unlike its brother, the Lenovo Legion 5i, this device comes with the new AMD Ryen 7 4000 series mobile processors. Not only will it bring the performance you need, but these chips are designed to aid in prolonging your laptop, as well. Much like the Legion 5i and 5Pi, the Legion 5 also comes with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2060 inside.

Finally, if you’re on a more casual side of gaming but still need powerful hardware to play well, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i is definitely for you. Even if it’s not a Legion product, this gaming laptop still packs a punch for any type of gamer out there. With the latest 10th-generation Intel Core H-series processors and up to an NVIDIA GTX 1650Ti inside, expect high-level gaming performance. It also comes with a 120Hz refresh rate display, and in two colors: Chameleon Blue and Onyx Black.

All of these gaming laptops come with Lenovo’s new technologies such as Coldfront 2.0 and TrueStrike keyboards for cooler and more responsive devices. They are expected to be available by June 2020, and pricing for the entire Legion lineup is as follows:

  • Lenovo Legion 7i – PhP 119,995
  • Lenovo Legion 5 series – Legion 5Pi (PhP 74,995), Legion 5i (PhP 62,995), Legion 5 (PhP 56,995)
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i – PhP 52,995

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
