Hi folks, Here are a few things to keep in mind (regarding the 2020 version – Intel 10th Generation/4000 AMD Series): A) Be aware that the 120Hz version of the Legion 5 has 250 nits of brightness and can’t be used outside in sunny weather as the screen will look washed out - additionally, color satu...

This is the budget gaming rig to beat.
Heck, dollar for dollar this is the GAMING rig to beat. Item of Note: There IS a 2.5” hard drive caddy/cable with this model.

I went traveling for 10 days and took my Legion 5 with me (so it was the only computer I had for 10 days). When I returned home and fired up my trusty ThinkPad T470p, animations and scrolling felt terrible! Same thing with my desktop PC - scrolling, dragging windows around and animations just felt wrong. I was just about to purchase a Dell Precision workstation of a Lenovo P1, but I don't think I can go back to a 60Hz display now.
What makes the Lenovo Legion line so popular?
The legion 5 also has very disappointing screens on its base model. The 120hz screen on it is notorious for its bad color reproduction and ghosting issues. The legion laptops can also be a bit hard to get into due to an excessive use of clips too making it hard to get inside without breaking a few of them. At least on my model switching between dGPU mode and iGPU mode breaks AMD graphics drivers so that also could be a downside.

Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 15 (2021)
The Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 15 (2021) is a lower mid-range gaming laptop. It's a step above the budget-oriented Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2021) but sits below the Legion 5 Pro and the Legion 7 in Lenovo's lineup. It's very similar to the IdeaPad Gaming 3 in design, user experience, and configu...

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro Review
We just handed our Editors' Choice award for midrange gaming rigs to the 15.6-inch Acer Predator Helios 300, but it's a near-run thing.
