Lenovo's Legion 5 comes in both an Intel and AMD version. We previously reviewed the Intel version now let's see how the AMD one performs!

Well, my two biggest complaints from the Legion 5i remain. One is that it has a clickable trackpad and one is that there's no Windows Hello. I don't personally mind the clickable trackpad, because I don't use it for gaming, and if you use a mouse, it's fine. Another con that I'm adding is sluggish performance under heavy workloads because frankly, it was not good on this machine.

Buying this Legion 5, I knew that the AMD Ryzen platform is an excellent performer in CPU-heavy tasks and efficient in everyday use, and I also knew that Lenovo offers a clean utilitarian design, good inputs, good screens, and multiple configuration options. I wasn't, however, expecting this to run as cooly and quietly as it does, and at the same time, I also didn't expect for the rubbery interior to dent and chip that easily. However, my major nits with this right now are the lack of a higher tier GPU option, as well as the expensive pricing for the GTX 1650Ti versions similar to the one I've got here. Down the road, though, once these are addressed, the Legion 5 is going to be one of the best-value mid-tier gaming notebooks of its generation.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
R7 4800H: A laptop-grade octa-core APU with SMT-enabled Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.9 GHz to 4.2 GHz and a Vega series graphics adapter with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1,600 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
