81.9% Lenovo Legion 5 17IMH Laptop Review: The battery just won't die | Notebookcheck
Despite the hardware from the gaming entry-level segment, you don't have to worry about the performance. The Legion 5i brings all the current computer games smoothly to the matte screen (Full-HD, IPS). The highlight of the laptop is the outstanding battery life.

Lenovo Legion 5i 17 review – they have done it again
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
There are definitely some compromises made in order to keep the price down. However, they are massively outweighed by all of the features and perks this unit has. Ultimately, we run all of our tests with the Extreme Performance preset, which is activated by the “Fn+Q” key combination. Nevertheless, it extracted everything out of the GTX 1650 Ti, which is a budget-conscious, but very capable GPU.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» 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.


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.


81.9%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
