The Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 with an RTX 4070 GPU, a Core i7-13700HX CPU, and a 16-inch 1600p resolution display is currently enjoying a US$150 discount at Lenovo's official store. The gaming laptop also features a wide variety of ports, an 80 Wh battery, and a 4-zone RGB keyboard.

The 2023 Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 gaming laptop with an RTX 4070 dGPU has now recorded a cool 10% discount at Lenovo’s online store. The price cut which takes the Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 from US$1,499.99 to US$1,349.99 takes effect when the coupon code INTELGAMERDAYS23 is applied at checkout (via slickdeals).

In addition to the RTX 4070 GPU listed above, the Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 configuration under discussion features a 13th gen Core i7-13700HX CPU, 16 GB of DDR5-4800 memory, 512 GB of PCIe Gen 4 storage, and a 16-inch IPS display. The display rocks a 2560x1600 resolution, a 165 Hz refresh rate, and an advertised 100% coverage of the sRGB gamut. The panel also supports Dolby Vision and NVIDIA G-SYNC.

In our review of a similarly configured Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 SKU, we praised the machine for its robust build, minimalist aesthetic, good port selection, and easy upgradability thanks to the availability of two M.2 and two SO-DIMM slots for storage and RAM expansion.

Furthermore, we were also impressed with the display. The 165 Hz 16-inch panel exhibited strong qualities like 98.8% coverage of the sRGB gamut, 405 nits max/368 nits average brightness, and pre-calibration resulting in delta E values of 1.2-1.65.

Put simply, the Legion Pro 5i Gen 8’s display is perfectly suitable for mid-range gaming.

Moving on, our review unit equipped with a Core i7-13700HX has enough CPU performance to handle both gaming and productivity workloads with ease. For instance, in our Blender/v2.79 BMW27 CPU test, the Core i7-13700HX was only beaten by the high-end Core i9-13900HX/13950HX and the Ryzen 9 7945HX.

Finally, the RTX 4070 GPU inside the machine on sale should be practically identical to the last-gen RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU. The board is powerful enough to play almost all modern AAA games at FHD/QHD resolution. In our testing at QHD resolution with Ultra setting, the RTX 4070 managed to run Atlas Fallen at 89 FPS, Baldur’s Gate 3 at 66 FPS, and The Last of Us at 45 FPS, to name a few.

Long story short, if you are looking for a powerful mid-range gaming laptop with a decent screen, the Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 at US$1,349.99 is well worth considering.
