For the price I paid for it, I like what this Lenovo Legion Pro 5i has to offer. It's a good-value mid-tier laptop, well built, with a good screen and inputs, and plenty of performance. At the same time, I would caution potential buyers about the hotspots in sustained loads, the somewhat limited battery life, and the lacking speakers.

Lenovo’s Legion series of gaming laptops are known for their superlative gaming abilities. Much to the delight of avid gamers, with each iteration the company optimises its machines to make them better, faster, and more efficient. With the latest Legion Pro 5i, Lenovo is pushing the envelope even further. I have been testing the Legion Pro 5i (Gen 8) for the last few weeks. The review unit here comes with the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-13900HX CPU and RTX 4070 GPU and is priced at Rs 1,86,877. Based on my experience, this review will attempt to find out if the Legion Pro 5i (Gen 8) is among the best gaming laptops under Rs 2 lakh in India right now.

If you couldn’t tell already, I like what this laptop has to offer – especially for the price. The performance is close to the top competitors out there and there’s a lot more to offer in the package, such as a nice screen, lots of IO, and pretty good build quality. I also give it extra points for having a decent webcam as well as a good keyboard and trackpad. I could easily see using this as a daily driver, provided you’re ok with the extra heft over the more portable solutions. The only drawbacks I would have and would caution people about would be the hotspots in sustained loads, the somewhat limited battery life, and the speakers. If you want to use this on battery and primarily as a multimedia consumption machine, there are better options out there.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
