If demanding gamers want to bet on a powerful machine to run their favorite titles, some of them do not have the budget to purchase one.

A laptop with solid performance
The Lenovo Legion 5’s main asset is in its guts. This gaming laptop has a very solid configuration, which promises maximum performance in every game. First of all, it packs a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 6800H octa-core processor clocked at 3.2 GHz (boost up to 4.7 GHz) and supported by 16 GB of RAM. For the graphics part, you can count on an RTX 3070. With such a technical sheet, you will be able to run the most demanding games and triple A without any problem, and that, in the best graphic conditions for highly reactive games and guaranteed immersion.
Additionally, the Lenovo Legion 5 comes with a 1TB M.2 form factor NVMe SSD, significantly reducing load times, promising exemplary fluidity during every session. Also note that this Legion 5 comes with Windows 11.
A responsive screen
Another point in favor of the Lenovo: its screen. Indeed, the latter offers a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) IPS panel, a more than comfortable diagonal so you don’t miss any detail in your games. Above all, this same panel is refreshed at 165 Hz, which allows you to enjoy a very fluid display, an essential quality during combos, in particular. We also have the right to compatibility with AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync technologies, which will take care of limiting the phenomenon of tearing (or screen tearing), as well as the jerks that can interrupt a game, by synchronizing the refresh rate of the screen with the amount of images delivered by the graphics card.
Around this screen we see a rather sober design, with a black frame that even has hinges to rotate the screen 180°. Its keyboard also has RGB backlighting. At the back, there is a ventilation system which makes it quite massive, especially since this beautiful beast still weighs 2.4kg on the scale. As for its connectivity, it rather has 3 USB-A 3.2 ports, 1 USB-C 3.2 port, two DisplayPort 1.4, an HDMI 2.1 port, an Ethernet port, and a headphone/microphone port.
