In general, the LOQ (16″ Intel, 2023) is a pretty good gaming device. Its GPU overclock function really matters when you need it. Well, you won’t change your laptop into a desktop machine, and you definitely won’t transform its graphics card into a higher-tier one. What you will do, however, is edge your opponents by a couple of fps here and there, at the expense of high internal and external temperatures. This leaves us with a sour taste and honestly – not wanting to use the function at all. So, did Lenovo do the right thing to introduce the LOQ brand to the market? The answer to this question lies in another one – is the LOQ much different than the IdeaPad Gaming? In our view – no. It seems like the situations in which the manufacturer is selling the same notebook with a different name, depending on the region.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
