Reviews for the Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8, i5-13500H RTX 3050

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.
