Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16APH8
The Legion Slim 5 16 is one of the best-looking gaming laptops in the low US$1000 price range and it includes a fantastic 165 Hz 1600p IPS display to boot. Unfortunately, some issues may be holding back its RTX 4060 graphics.

The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 acknowledges that a gaming laptop doesn’t have to be as thick as possible and can still ensure adequate cooling when the muscles need flexing. To this end, in the Slim 5 Gen 8, it finds a neat balance of refined, trimmed-down design that still lets its internals cruise (even above their max power ratings). Lenovo then added in some high-end build quality with an altogether excellent keyboard that’s useful for both work and play. At its retail price, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 already wins our Editors' Choice award for midrange gaming laptops. And given how often Lenovo discounts its gaming laptops over their lifetimes, this deal might just get even better over time.

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.
