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

This package is what I wanted the IdeaPad Gaming 3 to be: a powerful gaming laptop that doesn’t make heavy compromises in visual fidelity to get a fast frame rate. The Legion 5i is far from perfect, though. Its 720p webcam looks horrendous, and there...

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 5 15IMH05H review: Decent gaming performance if you get the upgrades

 

Our Lenovo Legion 5 review takes a look at one of their latest gaming laptops that can be customized to suit your needs and price range.

Solid build quality ; Pretty decent performance ; Customizable configurations ; Handles most games o.k. ; 120Hz refresh rate display (up to 240Hz available) ; Plenty of ports on board ; RGB lighting

Struggles with higher settings on some games ; Keyboard slightly spongy/soft for typing ; Crowded number pad ; Not very bright at 250nits (up to 500nits is available) ; Mediocre battery life

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.
