Anybody who is looking for a pre-built gaming laptop that is ready to go right out of the box should look into the Lenovo Legion 5 as it really has good stuff to offer. There are a few models available, each with multiple cores. With the lowest priced option, there is an AMD Ryzen 5 processor with 6-cores and up to 4.0-GHz with maximum boost. For something a bit more powerful, there is an AMD Ryzen 7 with 8-cores and up to 4.20-GHz with maximum boost.
One of the pros often mentioned in Lenovo Legion 5 reviews is its ability to stay cool. The keyboard remains a lot cooler than many other gaming laptops of comparable specs and pricing.
If you’re also an XBOX player, you get a lot of perks with the purchase of this Lenovo gaming notebook, like access to critically-acclaimed indie games and recent blockbusters both. New games are added all the time.
The 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS display with its anti-glare technology and 250-nits or 300-nits looks really amazing. There are a few options available, including one with 144-Hz 100% sRGB, and 5ms response time. Even with the cheapest option, the screen still shows everything in vibrant colors with 120-Hz.
Lenovo Legion 5 Graphics Card
It’s not surprising that the video graphics with the Lenovo Legion 5 are good as well, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 and 1650 Ti options (4GB). The GTX 1650 alone can get up to 70% faster than the 1050 on the latest online games.

The battery life can get up to 5 hours with the polymer 60-Wh and up to 8 hours with the polymer 80-Wh, according to testing based on MobileMark 2014 version 1.5 battery life benchmark. Obviously, the life and performance of the Lenovo Legion 5 battery is going to differ depending on numerous factors, including usage and operating conditions.
