Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16IRH8, i7-13700H RTX 4050

100% Lenovo Legion Slim 5i 2023 Review
Source: B2G English
In our test benchmark, we highligted the other Intel 13th-gen laptops we’ve tested and you may notice that despite bearing similar CPUs, the Legion 5i Slim 2023 does pull off some wins versus its competitors and that’s primarily due to the slight uplift that the faster DDR5-5200 memory gives in some instances, particularly productivity. In terms of gaming, the lighter games on our test show very good results but we do see it show being GPU-limited in games like Requiem. In general though, the games do perform well and for those games that do support Frame Generation and hits 60FPS, there should be a significant bump in performance. We couldn’t test this on time due to time constraints and curiously, Lenovo primarily carries the RTX 4070 model here rather than the RTX 4050.

Lenovo Legion Slim 5i review: Sleek outside, beefy inside
Source: Speed Magazine English
Today’s gaming laptops aren’t the chunky, cumbersome-to-carry machines we once knew. Thanks to advancements in technology, exceptional performance and portability are no longer mutually exclusive. If power and portability is your kind of thing, then the Lenovo Legion Slim 5i should be right up your ally..

Lenovo Legion Slim 5i review: splendid performance without the gimmicks
Source: 91mobiles English
The Lenovo Legion Slim 5i is a very competitive 16-inch gaming notebook. It offers great value and manages to deliver excellent performance. I would definitely recommend skipping the RTX 4050 GPU configuration and going for either the RTX 4060 or the 4070. Having a single 512GB SSD in today’s day and age is very limiting, but I appreciate the fact that there is a secondary storage slot, and Lenovo offers a configuration option to upgrade to a 1TB drive. You aren’t getting a flashy, premium design here which is a personal choice. There’s also very limited RGB lighting, and the battery life is just above average. If you can ignore or don’t care about these, then the Legion Slim 5i is highly recommended. The laptop is available at a starting price of Rs 1,29,344 and goes up depending on your configuration. Other gaming notebooks that you should also look at include the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16, Acer Predator Helios Neo 16 and the HP Omen 16.

82% Lenovo Legion Slim 5i Review: A Slim and Trim-endous Gaming Legion-ary
Source: Tech PP English
Our review unit of the Legion Slim 5i was priced at Rs 1,73,901. That might strike a regular notebook user as expensive, but for someone looking for a notebook that can channel the desktop gaming experience into a relatively slim and light form factor, this is a very good option. Others can mimic the hardware, but that keyboard, display, and design take the Lenovo Legion Slim 5i to the top of our recommendations for anyone looking for a close to high-end gaming experience on a notebook without going crazy on the expenditure front.

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.
