Reviews for the Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8, i5-13500H RTX 4060
Source: Trusted Reviews
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.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
