Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16IRX8

87.9% Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16IRX8 laptop review: A hefty US$1600 for the GeForce RTX 4060 | Notebookcheck
The Legion Pro 5 series is home to Lenovo's midrange gaming laptops, but our expectations are nonetheless high considering the lofty starting price of over $1400 USD for just the RTX 4050. The model impresses on most fronts so long as you can live with some notable drawbacks.

85% Lenovo Legion Pro 5i review (2023 generation – i7, RTX 4060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This 2023 gen8 Lenovo Legion Pro 5i is a competitive daily/work/gaming laptop in the mid-tier segment, especially with the kind of aggressive sales that Lenovo are pushing right now. This RTX 4060 configuration reviewed here is the fastest of its kind we've tested so far, and makes this Legion a very good no-fuss computer. Just don't expect much from the speakers or long runtimes on battery use.

Lenovo’s Legion Pro 5I Is An Outstanding Gaming Laptop For Top-Tier Frame Rates At A Mid-Tier Price
Source: USA Today English
But in return, the laptop loses out on battery life and portability. Unless you want to play games with desktop-level performance or spend a lot of time rendering 3D models, you might be better off sacrificing a bit of power for practicality. The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is about on par with the Lenovo Legion Pro 5i in battery life, display specs, and performance, but it’s much thinner. The Asus ROG Strix G18 offers better performance and better battery life (9 hours and 43 minutes versus the Legion’s 2 hours and 43 minutes). But the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro succeeds in what it sets out to do, squeezing the best performance possible from its components. Even with its drawbacks, it’s an undeniable step up from budget gaming laptops with muddy displays and middling performance, but it’s not the kind of laptop any gamer can love. It can replace your desktop, but it can’t replace your thin and light laptop.

70% Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The midpriced Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 follows some of our favorite gaming machines, including last year's model and the higher-end Legion Pro 7i Gen 8 tested earlier this year. But pedigree doesn't count for much in the computer world, and gaming laptops require a certain level of power and graphics performance to justify their prices. The Pro 5i Gen 8 just doesn't do that, offering middling CPU and GPU performance rather than the sort of muscle that would make it a great value. This Legion isn't a bad gaming rig, but if it's a good deal you seek, you might want to wait until it's on sale...preferably with a 1TB drive.

80% Lenovo Legion Pro 5i review: Subtle styling, big performance and affordable
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Lenovo Legion Pro 5i is a well-designed, subtle office-approved gaming laptop that can also handle your daily productivity tasks at work. It’s equally at home in the office, the local cafe, or your remote workstation. The combination of Intel’s Core i7 CPU and Nvidia 4060 GPU works perfectly to deliver users all the oomph most will ever need. From slaughtering enemies in Assassin's Creed to producing a great spreadsheet, the Legion Pro 5i has you covered for under $1,500. When you add the immersive 16-inch display and large comfortable keyboard, the 5i is a solid choice for those seeking a solid mid-tier gaming laptop.

80% Lenovo Legion 5 Pro review: Fast performance at a reasonable price
Source: PC World English
Lenovo’s Legion 5 Pro remains an easy recommendation. Its robust build, professional exterior, and excellent keyboard set it apart from rivals, and it delivers solid performance for both productivity and gaming. The Legion 5 Pro is a large, heavy laptop, and mediocre battery life makes it a poor travel companion. Still, it’s a great choice for gamers who need a fast laptop at a reasonable price.

80% Lenovo Legion Pro 5i review: a solid gaming laptop
Source: Techradar English
Unlike the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i that was released earlier this year, the Lenovo Legion Pro 5i is a much more affordable gaming laptop that offers excellent performance for its price point. It comes in two separate types: the Legion Pro 5i outfitted with an Intel CPU and the Legion Pro 5 which comes with an AMD CPU. Both versions use an Nvidia 4000-series GPU, as AMD The cheapest configuration you can nab without having to customize one yourself is about $1,259.99 / £1,410 (including VAT) / AU$2,499, which is far more affordable than most of the best gaming laptops on the market while still commanding respectable specs. I received two personal review units — the first came with the Intel Core i7-13700HX and the second with an AMD Ryzen 7 7745HX. Both come with an Nvidia GPU, as AMD hasn’t yet released gaming laptops with mobile processors.

Lenovo Legion Pro 5i: Features Removed, Still Worth It?
Source: Matthew Moniz English
Review of the 2023 Lenovo Legion Pro 5i Gen 8 gaming laptop. It comes with an Intel I7-13700H CPU and a NVIDIA RTX 4060 GPU. Not much has changed in terms of the design but Lenovo did remove some of its features making this laptop a little less "pro". Watch for the full review!

16.00":

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.
