When Lenovo announced the new Legion gaming-laptop lineup, perhaps the most exciting model was the Lenovo Legion 5. After all, the mid-range Lenovo laptop was the only one with AMD Ryzen 4000 processors. The Legion 5 is now orderable.

Starting at $969 over at Lenovo's website, the AMD laptop can be customized. The base model contains the AMD Ryzen 4600H, 8 GB of RAM, a 128 GB SSD, the 120 Hz FHD IPS screen (250 nits brightness), the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 and standard white keyboard-backlighting.

The best configuration available has the AMD Ryzen 4800H, 16 GB RAM, a 144 Hz FHD IPS panel (300 nits brightness), a 1 TB SSD, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and 4-zone RGB-colored backlighting. Such a model costs $1,739.

No matter if the less or more expensive configuration is chosen: Both are estimated to ship in "more than 5 weeks", so some patience will still be needed.

Also orderable is the Intel version of the Legion 5, the Lenovo Legion 5i. This one also ships in "more than 5 weeks". Compared with the Legion 5, the Legion 5i is also offered as a "Premium version" with two additional GPU options: The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060. Compared with the Ryzen laptop, the Lenovo Legion 5i costs $100 more in the base configuration. The base Premium model with the 1660 Ti costs at least $250 more.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.
