Each device has 16GB of 7,500 MHz LPDDR5x RAM.

The cooling is taken care of by a separate thermal cooling system that uses a liquid polymer blade fan that can operate in Custom Mode at 25W of TGP and maxes out at 25dB. Two USB-Type C ports (USB 4.0, DisplayPort 1.4, Power Delivery 3.0), a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio connector are included in the I/O department.

Legion Go has a two-cell, 49.2Wh battery that enables rapid charging and promises to charge from 0% to 70% in 30 minutes. When gaming while plugged in, Legion Go also offers power bypass mode, which helps the battery last longer. It comes with a 65W PD charger from Lenovo.
