Reviews for the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6H
The Legion 5i Pro from last year was an excellent laptop and this year it has only gotten better. The improvements might be minor, but the new Legion 5i Pro is definitely one of the top recommended gaming laptops for 2022. The combination of Intel’s latest processor and Nvidia’s RTX 3060 GPU ensure the best performance and high-quality graphics experience. The display is bright, crisp and super responsive while gaming. Even the design, although a bit dull, is very solid and should last its lifetime without any issues. The laptop is also loaded with a respectable set of I/O ports and the keyboard is a joy to type on. It also gets marks for serviceability, though the bottom panel is a bit tricky to open. The only concern that one might have is the battery life, as some AMD-based counterparts are definitely more efficient. Other small nitpicks include a below-average webcam and the lack of any biometrics for secure login. Overall, the Legion 5i Pro is definitely worth your money if you are looking for a reliable and powerful gaming laptop.

The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is the sweet-spot gaming and performance laptop of the 2021 generation, and that's no easy feat. It checks almost all the important boxes and sells for a very competitive price in this Ryzen 7 + RTX 3060 configuration. While still not without some quirks, few other products can match it in overall value; just make sure you're OK with its size and weight.

Let’s wrap up this review of the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. From everything I’ve discussed so far, it’s pretty clear that I’m a big fan of this gaming laptop. It has quite a sturdy build quality, a stunning display, powerful performance, and an effective thermal solution. Sure, Lenovo hasn’t delivered a perfect gaming laptop as evident from the mediocre battery life and the “springy” keys. But those are a couple of dismissable aspects for a device in its category. Compared to the standard Legion 5, the Pro variant is easily worth the extra money. And if you’re looking for something with a little more pizzazz, then the Lenovo Legion 7 with its even more premium build quality and all the RGB lighting looks like a decent option as well.

The latest to join the Lenovo family is the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. In terms of its design, this laptop might remind the users of older gaming laptops, with its bulky design and hinge placement. With a more than one inch thickness, this is no svelte gaming machine. In addition, the laptop is also quite heavy at nearly 5.5 pounds. Apart from that, the laptop is stacked to the gills with ports, most of which can be found on the back. There is an Ethernet jack, three USB-A ports, a USB-C power delivery port and an HDMI port, plus Lenovo’s familiar rectangular power input. On the other hand, the left side of the laptop houses another USB-C port and the headphone jack, while the right side is home to a fourth USB-A port and a camera kill switch toggle.
Overall, the vents take up a fair bit of the laptop’s body, with one on the bottom, one on either side, and one on the back. Well, considering the hardware inside this model, such a number of vents comes as no surprise. As far as its keyboard is concerned, the Legion 5 Pro has been equipped with a backlit full keyboard and a number pad. However, this does make it feel extremely uncomfortable to type on, since the main keyboard is off-center, and the number pad is only marginally useful. Overall, beyond the layout, the keyboard is not all that great. In fact, the key travel is short, which is common on a lot of laptops, but the keys themselves also feel mushy. In a nutshell, the Legion 5 Pro did not facilitate a pleasant typing experience.
In terms of its display, Lenovo claims that the Legion 5 Pro is the first gaming laptop with a 16-inch QHD 16:10 display. Well, it is undeniable that this laptop is quite a looker, with slim bezels surrounding it as most gaming laptops have 16:9 aspect ratios. The Legion 5 Pro’s 16:10 display works great for games, while offering a little extra vertical space for web browsing or working in documents. In addition to the 2560 x 1600 screen resolution, the laptop’s display also goes up to 165Hz and supports G-Sync.
As for its performance, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro has two options for the CPU which is either an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H or Ryzen 7 5800H. There are also choices of GPUs from an Nvidia GeForce RTX3050 all the way up to an RTX 3070 for this model. In terms of its gaming experience, this laptop can be considered as an excellent machine. However, there is more to this device than just its gaming performance as the Ryzen 7 5800H and 16GB of RAM (3200MHz) is obviously great for other productivity applications too. As for the battery, the Legion 5 Pro has a respectable 80 Whr battery that can last for 6 hours and 15 minutes. Overall, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA106 chip with 3072 cores. Available in different versions with a TDP from 60 to 115 Watt.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
R7 5800H: A high-performance, laptop-grade, octa-core APU. The Ryzen features eight SMT-enabled Zen 3 cores running at 3.2 GHz to 4.4 GHz along with the Vega 8 graphics adapter that runs at up to 2,000 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.
