The Lenovo Legion 5i is a solid mid-ranger masquerading as a low-budget option for gamers. For a respectable $1,600 gamers get a device they can tote around from the office (be it just the upstairs bedroom now) to their favorite spot on the couch to play games. The subtle hardware refinement and muted design singles a convergence of hardware that Lenovo is looking to continue to make going forward. Looking at a Yoga or Ideapad now, it’s not too hard to see a Legion-gaming option of that hardware as the two device designs grow to mimic each other.

This is a more than capable mid-range laptop, if you’re in the market for a gaming laptop that makes a few compromises to give you great performance at a compelling price point then the Lenovo Legion 5i is worth checking out.

Honestly, when it comes to casual gaming, I don't know how you can beat that. It also future-proofs you a lot better than the $969 model that B&H is also offering, with the Core i7, 8GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, a 60Hz display, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 with 4GB GDDR6. For $1,299, the model I reviewed is the sweet spot.

There's plenty to like about the Legion 5i, from a sturdy build to solid gaming performance. It's not the lightest or most exciting design, but it feels well-made and includes some advanced features. The keyboard is improved over past iterations, and the webcam placement is more sensible. Add a GPU that just about matches the performance of a more expensive option from previous-generation Legion laptops, as well as a superior processor, and this is an overall better value than before.

This package is what I wanted the IdeaPad Gaming 3 to be: a powerful gaming laptop that doesn’t make heavy compromises in visual fidelity to get a fast frame rate. The Legion 5i is far from perfect, though. Its 720p webcam looks horrendous, and there are too few perks (specs aside) included with buying this over Lenovo’s more affordable gaming machine. A Thunderbolt 3 port and an SD card reader would have been appreciated. Alas, your main reward for spending more cash here simply results in a faster computer, and one that’s still relatively affordable compared to similarly configured 15.6-inch computers from competitors like Razer and MSI.
