Lenovo Legion 5i Review

 

RTX 2060 GPU provides more than 60fps in demanding games ; 144Hz display for competitive multiplayer titles ; Well-made, compact build and good battery life ; Comfy revamped keyboard with full numpad ; 1TB of SSD storage and plenty of ports, including...

Some may find design plain ; Not especially lightweight for its screen size

The Lenovo Legion 5i is a smart refinement of last year's Legion gaming laptops, delivering practical design updates, a new CPU, and solid 1080p gaming performance at a fair price.

Lenovo’s Legion 5i is a gaming laptop of few compromises and few perks

 

RTX graphics make this a reliable midrange machine

The concave keys are still a joy to type on ; Good performance ; Can run most games at 60 frames per second with minimal compromises

An SD card reader and Thunderbolt would have been nice ; Poor webcam quality ; It’s eerily similar to the more affordable IdeaPad Gaming 3

Lenovo’s Legion 5i gaming laptop improves on the IdeaPad Gaming 3 with its support for Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics, which make all the difference when it comes to playing most PC games at a smooth 60 frames per second.

Lenovo Legion 5i (15-inch) review

 

The Lenovo Legion 5i is a budget gaming rig that's perfect for minimalists

Budget-friendly for a gaming laptop ; Clutter-free, well-placed ports ; Good speakers ; Decent VR benchmark scores

Dim display ; Middling performance

The Lenovo Legion 5i is a budget gaming laptop with decent gaming benchmark scores, but it has a dim display.

Lenovo Legion 5i Review: Screen Saver

 

Nvidia Advanced Optimus makes its debut

Bright, colorful G-Sync screen ; Comfortable keyboard ; Strong Productivity Performance ; Fast file transfer speeds

Optimus needs tinkering for best game performance ; Pricey for the specs

The Lenovo Legion 5i hits two key points for a laptop, with a vivid display and comfortable keyboard, but you may want to tinker with the Advanced Optimus settings.

LENOVO Legion 5 15.6" Gaming Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7, RTX 2060, 256 GB SSD

 

It’s fast and can run a lot of games. Generally just a good laptop.

Needs more storage/RAM to to reach its full potential which I think was the best compromise for the price, can upgrade them if needed.
