Our Initial Thoughts
Lenovo Legion flew us to Singapore for the Lenovo Legion Asia Pacific Tour 2023. Lenovo showcased their latest products that are currently available in the market, and also officially announced the arrival of the following products in the Asia Pacific Region:
- Lenovo Legion Go
- Legion 9i
- Lenovo Legion Glasses
My experience of the Legion Go is the highlight of the trip. As expected, I had a boatload of fun using the Legion Go. It has a huge display, detachable controllers, and a mobile APU that is built to let you play triple A titles on the go, hence the name.
Lenovo Legion Philippines finally broke the news earlier today, and detailed the price and goodies for those who will pre-order the unit. As you may have seen in the specs sheet above, the Legion Go 512GB will be available in the Philippines for PhP49,995. It comes with 2 years of Onsite Warranty, Legion Go Tempered Glass, Legion H200 Wired Gaming Headset, Legion Go Carry Case, and 3 months of Xbox Game Pass.
According to Lenovo Philippines, there will be more announcements in the future about bundles and other products that they will bring to the country. Lenovo Philippines has not yet commented about the availability of the 256GB variant of Legion Go.
Questions that you may have!
Is the Lenovo Legion Go 512GB coming to the Philippines?
Yes! It is coming to the Philippines and you can pre-order it starting November 15 for PhP49,995. There will be no pre-order discounts. ETA is December 2023.
What are the pre-order bundles?
Those who will pre-order ill receive Legion Go Tempered Glass, Legion H200 Wired Gaming Headset, and Legion Go Carry Case.
In your opinion, is the price worth it?
The 512GB price out the Philippines is $699 or roughly around PhP40,000. Should you buy this on directly on Amazon (without any forwarder), you will have to consider adding Import Duties and Taxes, and Exchange Rate Guarantee Fee. This means that you may need to add PhP15,000 to PhP17,000 more, which puts up its gross price to PhP57,000.
With its local official price of PhP49,995, you are getting local 2-year Onsite Warranty and pre-order freebies, making it a substantially better offer than buying from scalpers and non-official sellers. Let’s just hope that Lenovo Philippines can keep up to the local demand.
Is the Lenovo Legion Go’s storage upgradable?
Yes! Legion go supports M.2 2242 SSD, and may be upgraded. We have not yet done so at the time of writing this article; but we already bought a Sabrent 2TB M.2 2242 SSD to do this ourselves. Meanwhile, you can check out videos on YouTube about how to upgrade the SSD of the Legion Go.
Is this faster than the ROG Ally?
It is technically the same, but since it has LPDDR5X RAM configuration, it gives it a bit of edge the the ROG Ally. Take this with a grain of salt as we will be doing some benchmarks once we receive our review unit.
