The Lenovo Legion 5i Pro exceeded my expectations, offering speedy performance enriched by the eye-pleasing 16-inch display. It's great for playing games, and a solid laptop for getting work done. It's a good choice for anyone in the market for a 16-inch gaming laptop, though at over 5 pounds heavy (not to mention the truly brick-like charger) this isn't the most portable gaming machine. If you'd prefer something a little easier to carry around, the Alienware X14 costs roughly the same amount yet is both smaller and lighter. However, its performance can't match the Legion 5i Pro and it has a smaller, lower-resolution screen. That said, few 16-inch gaming laptops deliver the same great performance and features as the Legion 5i Pro for this price.

The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is a remarkably powerful, versatile laptop. Though it targets gamers, the Legion 5 Pro’s wide range of connectivity, excellent keyboard, 16:10 display, and adequate battery life will appeal to many. It’s a great choice for games, photo or video editing, 3D rendering, and other demanding tasks. It’s disappointing to see Lenovo ship the laptop with an underwhelming display. Games and movies don’t look their best. Audio is also weak compared to alternatives from Alienware and Razer. These flaws are forgiven by the price. The model I tested will retail exclusively at Walmart for $1,999. That’s less than an Alienware X15 or Alienware X17 with RTX 3060 mobile graphics and beats the Razer Blade 17 by hundreds of dollars. The Legion 5 Pro’s value makes it easy to recommend.

I’m happy with the internal spec improvements that Lenovo made to this year’s Legion 5 Pro, and people who don’t want to spend a fortune on a gaming laptop should consider this model. It’s a fast laptop for more than just gaming, and I still adore the typing experience. Lenovo’s lack of transparency around pricing notwithstanding, the best thing about this Intel-based version that I tested is its price. Considering its power, this $1,999 Legion is still fairly affordable as far as rigs loaded with Intel’s 12th Gen chips go. For example, it’s $500 less than the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 that I mentioned earlier, yet it has a similarly powerful GPU. It’s priced more competitively to Asus’ ROG Zephyrus G15, but with that model, you’re giving up some power in exchange for portability. Lenovo didn’t need to do much to make the 2022 Legion 5 Pro a hit. On one hand, it delivered just enough to satisfy me by increasing the power and adding some conveniences, like faster USB-C charging and a Thunderbolt 4 port. And even with its subpar speaker system and low amount of default storage

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.
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.
73.75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
