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 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 5P 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5, RTX 2060, 256 GB SSD

 

Full power rtx 2060, great 144hz screen and very good thermals, I've not seen it go past 75c on gpu and 80c cpu

Should come with 16gb ram as standard and 512gb+ usd as standard. Quick and easy to upgrade your self but for a machine with a rtx2060 and decent cpu you shouldn't really need to.
