Lenovo Legion Go Ryzen Z1 Extreme Handheld Discounted To $629

Lenovo Legion Go featuring Z1 Extreme, is currently offered at a reduced rate of $629 on Amazon. Surprisingly, this price is lower than the $649 price tag on Lenovo’s official US store for the same model. This markdown to $629 marks the steepest discount since its launch five months ago, when it was priced at $699.


With its AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, the Legion Go showcases an 8-core Zen4 APU paired with Radeon 780M RDNA3 graphics. Tailored for low-power gaming on handheld devices, this chipset presents a fresher and more robust architecture when contrasted with Valve’s Steam Deck, which employs RDNA2 graphics.


As a result, Lenovo and ASUS, both leveraging similar APUs, managed to integrate screens with superior resolutions and refresh rates. Lenovo’s 8.8-inch display actually positions it as one of the largest handhelds available. However, in this instance, users have the advantage of being able to detach gamepads, akin to the Nintendo Switch.


Although ASUS provides options for their ROG Ally, offering models with either Ryzen Z1 Extreme or non-Extreme processors, Lenovo has chosen to exclusively launch the Legion Go with the Z1 Extreme processor. Offering both 1TB and 512GB storage variants, the latter was initially listed at $699 by Lenovo, while the former typically retails for $749. Presently, the 512GB model is discounted to $649 and $629.


The Lenovo Legion Go often sees price drops to $649 every few weeks, yet this current markdown to $631 marks the deepest discount so far. This naturally challenges competitors like the MSI Claw, which shares a similar price point. We’ve already noticed some price adjustments on the Claw, with discounts reaching up to 25% for this Intel Core Ultra-powered handheld. However, for the Claw to truly remain competitive, what it truly requires is an official price reduction across all markets.
