Lenovo has quite a few new laptops incoming.
However, if you want a powerful gaming laptop that won’t break the budget, the Lenovo Legion 5, which will be available in 15.6 and 17.3 variants, might just do the trick.
While it looks unassuming and lacks the RGB bells and whistles of other gaming laptops, the Lenovo Legion 5 can be configured with up to an octa-core Ryzen 7 4800H processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU and a 144Hz refresh rate display.
Other than the logo, nothing really gives away the fact that Legion 5 is a gaming laptop but Lenovo did include some perks.
“A white backlit keyboard offers 100 percent anti-ghosting and soft-landing switches—resulting in hair-trigger accuracy and a more tactile gaming experience,” says the company.
The only drawback might be the fact that you can only go for up to 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, which still works for 1080p gaming and most PC games you’d want.
With up to 1 TB PCIe SSD storage, you can certainly keep a few installed.
The 15-inch Lenovo Legion 5 with the AMD Ryzen 7 4800 H-Series will be available in August starting at $1019.99.
The 17-inch model will show up a month later, in September, and start at $1089.99.
