At IFA 2023, Lenovo has unveiled the new Legion 9i gaming laptop, which is scheduled for release in October at a starting price of $4,399. The laptop stands out in the Legion lineup for several reasons, the main one being its standalone liquid cooling system, which is the first time it has been used for a 16-inch gaming laptop.

While some laptop manufacturers have experimented with external liquid cooling, the Legion 9i is designed to cool itself completely without any additional external devices.
