Reviews for the Lenovo LOQ 16IRH8

87.3% Lenovo LOQ 16 gaming laptop review: Where is the hitch compared to the more expensive Legion? | Notebookcheck
With its LOQ series, Lenovo tries out a new name for affordable gaming laptops compared to the more expensive Legion models. The current 16-inch model is affordable, and the performance is right. So where is the hitch? We test the gaming laptop with an RTX 4060!
90% Lenovo LOQ 16IRH8 Review: Affordable Gaming Laptop
Source: Root Nation English
Frankly speaking, I didn’t expect Lenovo LOQ 16IRH8 to surprise me so pleasantly. Because I expected to deal with a pseudo-gaming laptop again, which has a lot of nuances and compromises. Yes, it’s not a super-powerful gaming laptop that you’re excited about, that can handle even the most demanding computer games. It’s a good workhorse that will allow you to have a great time playing a lot of games and solving a bunch of everyday tasks without any serious problems. I think that overall it is a great laptop for those who want to buy a reliable machine for both gaming and office work. Are there any compromises or solutions that I didn’t like? Perhaps I would have added a few more USB ports, equipped the laptop with a Wi-Fi 6E module. It wouldn’t hurt to think about some design decisions. Frankly speaking, the laptop is bulky and heavy for a modern laptop. As for the processor and video card, advanced gamers may be disappointed, while beginners, on the other hand, will be pleasantly surprised.

16.00":

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.

2.655 kg:

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


Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


84.33%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
