The Lenovo Legion 5 series was already a good option if you were looking to buy a budget gaming laptop in Nepal. However, the recent drop in price has made these laptops even more appealing. So, if you were thinking of getting Lenovo Legion 5 series laptop hurry up to grab them for a discounted price in Nepal.
Lenovo Legion 5 / 5i Overview:
Lenovo Legion 5 series is the successor to last year’s Legion Y540 lineup of laptops. With the new naming convention, Legion is trying to reflect more details of the device using simpler names. If you ask me, the change in the naming convention does make sense. First, I find the Legion 5 simpler yet more effective than the Y540. Second, with the new naming convention, I can easily find what I’m looking for. For instance, if I need a Ryzen powered device, I will filter out all the devices with the “i” suffix as those are the ones with Intel’s chipset.
Lenovo Legion 5 is the company’s first gaming laptop powered by AMD’s chipset. It is just a reflection of how popular AMD’s latest Ryzen 4000 series has been since its announcement in CES 2020.
Performance and Memory
For the Lenovo Legion 5, you get to choose between the Ryzen 7 4800H and Ryzen 5 4600H processors. Both of them belong to the H-series which is specifically designed to handle resource-demanding tasks. Among the two, Ryzen 7 4800H lies to the higher end of the spectrum as it features 8 cores and 16 threads compared to 6 cores and 12 threads of the Ryzen 5 4600H.
As the “i” suffix indicates, Lenovo Legion 5i is powered by Intel’s latest 10 Gen Comet Lake processor and it tops out at Core i7-10875H processor. This processor comes with 8 cores and 16 threads.
Compared to the Ryzen 7 4800H, it has a slower base clock speed of 2.4GHz but it can reach up to 5.1GHz with the turbo boost. The boosted speed may sound a lot but only select cores can hit that speed and that too, under controlled temperature. It also has a bigger cache. Nevertheless, it will certainly perform better than its Ryzen counterpart when it comes to single-threaded tasks but comes with an added cost.
Users can choose between three graphics cards – GTX 1660, GTX 1660 Ti, and RTX 2070. You can include up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD on the Lenovo Legion 5.
Design and Display
The Legion 5 and 5i are available in two screen sizes – 15.6-inch and 17”. Both 15” and 17” model have FHD IPS panel. You can choose between standard 60Hz and a faster 144Hz panel. The 144Hz options support Dolby Vision as well. There is also additional 120Hz option (250 nits) for the 15” models.

The keyboard is backlit and you can also opt for one that with 4-zone RGB backlight. The laptop is powered by a 4-celled 60Wh battery. Some models even have an 80Wh battery.
