We will have all of the nitty-gritty details of Acer's new Swift X -- as well as the new Predator Helios 300, Predator Triton 500 SE, and Nitro 5 gaming laptops -- once they're all officially unveiled this week at CES 2022.

Lenovo is dropping the Y-shaped Legion logo on the lid with its new Legion 5 Pro gaming laptop, where the company is pimping its own gaming brand on the new Legion 15 Pro laptop -- like it does with the Legion 7.

We should see the new Legion 5 series starting out with Intel Core i7-12800H through to the AMD Ryzen 9 6800H, offering the best of each camp -- Intel's new Alder Lake CPUs and AMD's upcoming Rembrant chip.
