Lenovo Legion 5Pi Review - An Affordable Gaming Laptop with a Premiu...

The Legion range from Lenovo is something that we've become big fans of in recent months -- thanks to the Lenovo Legion Y540 and Y740 -- and now this, the Lenovo Legion 5Pi. Which presents a premium version of the affordable 5i range, that still remains, well, affordable. And it's damn good.

Thanks to the bright and vibrant display, excellent build, great keyboard, and cutting-edge tech like NVIDIA Optimus. It's one of those rare gaming laptop where you feel like you're getting more than what the figure on the price-tag would have you believe. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti model comes in at an under $2,000 AUD too. Impressive.

Here's a snippet from our review.
The revamped but somewhat similar design of the Lenovo Legion 5Pi pushes the price up a bit, but this premium revision of the Legion 5i (and the Y540 before it) sees a level-up in everything from the display to the underlying hardware to even the inclusion of fancy new tech like NVIDIA Optimus.

Which seamlessly switches back and forth between integrated graphics and the impressive NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 depending on the task.

That was one of the few sticking points we had with the Legion Y540, as the disabled integrated graphics affected overall battery life – until we went full sys-admin to re-enable it. In fact, the Lenovo Legion 5Pi just about feels like the engineers at Lenovo spent an evening or two going through all the reviews and seeing the feedback on forums and Reddit and deciding, yeah, let’s fix all of that. In the RTX 2060 model we tested, the Legion 5Pi also came packed with a sizable 80Wh battery to offer up hours of plug-free use.

While this does not have a Thunderbolt 3 port, it does have 2 ports that deliver Display port 1.4 over USB-C. I guess they are useful for connecting one 4k monitor each. A TB3 port would have enabled 5k monitor, but it is a useless extra in most everybody's use case, I think. I could be wrong. So, if you want to connect two 4k monitors, this is good. If you want to daisy chain multiple monitors, I doubt that would work well.
