Lenovo LOQ hands-on: First impressions of Lenovo's new gaming machine
Source: Pocket Lint English
There's a lot to like about the Lenovo LOQ on first glance. The feel of this laptop and the design doesn't scream basic - in fact some might be taken by that slightly more subtle design than some other gaming laptops. We also love the rear IO and the colour detail to the vents around the chassis - it looks great. We have high hopes for this laptop, but obviously haven't had the opportunity to test it to any degree. But with plentiful hardware options and a wide range of features on offer, the Lenovo LOQ could be a great choice for someone looking for a powerful PC that doesn't cost the earth.

First Impressions: Lenovo LOQ 15i (2023) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo LOQ 15i represents a renewed focus on the budget gaming laptop market from the popular manufacturer. The design changes are a welcome revamp, if still one that doesn’t reinvent the wheel. The specs look promising for entry-level laptop gaming and a starting price that I’d expect to be just over £1000 once UK pricing is announced. The combination of the latest Intel or AMD chips alongside Nvidia’s best mid-tier mobile graphics card should do a solid job. We shall see.

Lenovo’s LOQ Laptops Hands-On: The New Budget Gaming Leader?

Made for first-time and budget-conscious gamers and creators, the new 15.6- and 16-inch laptops look like Lenovo’s pricier Legion line but with more modest components.

Hands on: Lenovo LOQ 15 review
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo LOQ 15, as I’ve seen so far, could be a contender for one of the best cheap gaming laptops for gamers. It features some great specs, both in hardware and display, while choosing options that keep its price point down. If its configurations can deliver on the $900 and up MSRP, then we’ll have our clear winners for this generation. That's not to mention how much lighter this machine is than some of the offerings we’ve seen this generation yet. If the price is truly right — and it should be with the option to customize and lower pricing even more, as well as the choice between AMD and Intel CPUs — then we could be looking at the kind of mix between value and performance that’s long overdue in the gaming market.

Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 Review: Locked Out Of Legion
Source: Lowyat.net English
The Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 has all the telltale signatures of a gaming laptop by the brand, even if it doesn’t come with the word Legion in its name. It looks recognisably from the brand, and it behaves in a similar fashion when under stress. Its lasting power while not plugged in is left wanting. Which is fine, as it’s not the laptop’s primary purpose, but when you do find yourself in such a situation, you’ll feel the pressure to get your work done more while using it. On the flip side, if there is a reason that this laptop stars in its own brand new series of gaming laptops rather than joining the Legion line, it is probably not due to its lack of gaming prowess.

90% Lenovo LOQ 15 review: A great value gaming laptop
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Lenovo LOQ 15 is an above average affordable gaming laptop, particularly if you fork out for some of the available upgrades. Lenovo’s 165Hz 1440p display? Worth it, as the base display is undersaturated. The Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics card? Absolutely. And unlike some other brands' upgrades, these ones are sensibly priced. The keyboard is great, as is the overall look and feel of the Lenovo LOQ 15. It just doesn't seem as cheap and basic as much of the competition. There's just one part I wish was better - the tone of the fan noise. As long as you're happy with this, the mediocre touchpad and lack of ultra-fast connectivity, it's a really great option.

Lenovo LOQ 15 Malaysia review: This entry level gaming laptop feels anything but entry level
Source: Soycincau English
While it may be quite a jump from that original ‘starting from RM3,699’ price tag, the Lenovo LOQ 15 that we reviewed still isn’t that bad especially when you consider that its entry level gaming laptop rivals have been going up in price too. The new Acer Nitro 16 for instance with comparable specs (AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, RTX 4060) to the Lenovo LOQ 15 that we have here is priced at RM6,399. If we were to compare with what the Lenovo Malaysia website has on offer though, its RTX 4050-powered Lenovo LOQ 15 is still cheaper than the RTX 4050-powered Acer Nitro 16 that’s priced at RM5,799, though in both cases the Nitro 16 does have a taller 16-inch, 16:10 WQXGA display with the same 165Hz refresh rate.

85.7% Lenovo LOQ 15 Ryzen 7 7840HS laptop review: Don't call it a Legion | Notebookcheck
If an IdeaPad sounds too cheap and the Legion sounds too expensive, then the LOQ might tickle your fancy. The GeForce RTX 4050 is proving to be very capable for users who are satisfied with a solid 1080p gaming experience at 60 FPS.
80% Lenovo LOQ 15 (AMD) review: great performance at a reasonable price
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo LOQ 15 (AMD) offers solid gaming performance, especially with more competitive (and less graphics-demanding) titles while staying cool under pressure. It is a bit on the heavy side and the port placement can be awkward for anyone who moves their laptop regularly. But, considering the price, this is a very good option for new or budget-minded gamers.

78% Lenovo LOQ 15 (15APH8) Review – Fast, But Flawed
Source: Pokde English
Now, since the Lenovo allows for highly flexible configurability when it comes to buying a laptop, note that what we said is not entirely representative of LOQ 15 as a whole, but rather, on this very laptop with its own configuration (we’ll note if otherwise). The platform itself, that is to say things like keyboard, speakers, I/O, cooling (applies to all LOQ 15 models) – they’re what you’d expect from a budget-centric model. Decent keyboards, solid I/O, and speakers being not-so-great. Cooling-wise, it’s also pretty good all things considered, since a CPU at full tilt generating 90W of power is difficult for even the top-of-the-line laptops to pull it off; while thermals are reasonably well controlled, and the fans do not produce any distracting whines. For this particular laptop, the hardware configuration comes unbalanced.

70% Lenovo LOQ 15 Review
Source: PC Mag English
Even after a short time with the LOQ 15, you'll find it has a lot going for it, but ultimately it's just "good"—not quite a star. The performance is respectable for the hardware it’s running, but Lenovo had to make some design sacrifices to trim the price. One of the better aspects is the keyboard, making it one of the better low-cost gaming laptops to actually put your hands on. If budget allows, the pricier Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 is a considerable improvement on the LOQ, while the Gigabyte Aorus 15 BMF remains our top pick for budget gaming laptops. Even so, the Lenovo LOQ 15 still has a place as a low-cost, high-utility gaming laptop, especially if (or when) you can find it marked down.

Lenovo LOQ (15″ Intel, 2023) review – low price, high performance
Source: Laptop Media English
Considering its price tag and performance capabilities, the Lenovo LOQ (15″ Intel, 2023) is one of the best affordable gaming notebooks you can get right now. Of course, this doesn’t take into consideration the temperatures and some features that are missing. In our opinion, the regular user won’t be interested in them. In terms of pure gaming experience, you don’t really need an SD card slot, nor a Thunderbolt 4 port. However, you might want a MUX switch, and the LOQ 15 delivers in this department. Lenovo LOQ (15″ Intel, 2023)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a very good contrast ratio. Its backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, which is great.

85.9% Lenovo LOQ 15 Core i7 Review: Affordable Legion alternative that throws up an Intel vs AMD conundrum | Notebookcheck
With the LOQ 15IRH8, Lenovo aims to deliver a distinctive, capable gaming laptop that goes easy on the wallet without the baggage of its other budget lineups. Does this plastic-clad contender succeed? How does this Core i7-13620H model fare against its similarly priced AMD Zen 4-powered cousin? Our testing reveals a mixed bag.
Review – Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 (i7-13620H | RTX 4050 (95W) | 1x8GB DDR5-5200 | 512GB NVMe SSD | 15.6″ 1440p 165Hz)
Source: Tech Critter English
To sum up, the Lenovo LOQ 15 is a suitable choice for casual gamers seeking an affordable laptop with an RTX 40-series GPU, a comfortable full-sized keyboard, and reliable performance for both gaming and work. However, it may not be the right pick for those looking for a highly portable laptop, with a 16:10 display, or a color-calibrated, high-brightness display. Despite its minor shortcomings in battery life and display quality, the Lenovo LOQ 15 offers solid value for budget-conscious gamers, featuring an attractive design and competitive performance.

Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 review - 15.6-inch Budget Gaming Laptop with an NVIDIA RTX 4050
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, the Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 gaming laptop is an apt gaming desktop replacement unit if you’re looking for something in the RM5K range. It provides solid gaming performance and should be able to handle most content creation relatively easily as well. However, we wouldn’t recommend you bring it unplugged as the rather limited battery life and massive charger don’t make it very portable. With its top-range price tag of RM5499, the laptop has a relatively good price for a gaming laptop or desktop, while its 15.6-inch display should satisfy most uses. Unfortunately, there’s a number of other gaming laptops with similar if not better tech specs going for less like the Acer Nitro 5 (RM4899) so, we’d only recommend the Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 if you’re a Lenovo fan. What do you think? Does the Lenovo LOQ have more to offer? Would you pick up one for your gaming needs?

76% Lenovo LOQ 15 Review (2023): Affordable Stunner
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
So wrapping up this Lenovo LOQ 15 review, it’s fair to say that it is one heck of a gaming laptop on a budget that gets a lot of things right. Especially since this combo of the latest Ryzen 7 7840HS and RTX 4060 processors — mixed with a smooth 144Hz G-SYNC ready display — is a great recipe for 1080p gaming. And seeing how most of the competition with a similar setup cost quite a bit more, the LOQ 15 stands out as a solid offering. Having said that, there are a few turnoffs here that may or may not matter to you. Like its cheap plastic build, that so-so display, and a few other things. But I think these mild turnoffs are something you can live with just fine, considering everything the LOQ 15 offers for the price.

80% Lenovo LOQ 15i Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Where Lenovo’s previous gaming laptops were cheap but underpowered, the LOQ 15 delivers a stronger all-round spec in an attractive, affordable package. You can go cheaper by buying an RTX 4050 model, but this version hits the sweet spot between price and performance, giving you ample power for 1080p gaming without any serious compromises, but at a price point that’s closer to reasonable than ridiculous. There are some good machines hovering around this price point, with both the HP Victus 16 and Acer Nitro 5 giving strong bang for the buck. But, for my money, the LOQ 15 wins thanks to its better, brighter screen and its RTX 4060 spec. If you want to game without paying silly money, it’s an excellent buy.
