If you need a portable gaming device, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5i Gen 8 (16″ Intel, 2023) is for sure one of the possible options on the market. The device can be configured with powerful and modern hardware and at the same time, it’s not too big and heavy like the high-end gaming devices. At the same time, the hardware under the bonnet is more than enough for resource-heavy games. The 165Hz 1600p display (CSOT MNG007DA1-Q (CSO161D)) supports G-Sync so if you pair it with a GeForce RTX 4060 or with the more powerful RTX 4070, the laptop will be a true gem for gaming on the go. Speaking of the display, the 16:10 unit also has comfortable viewing angles and good sRGB coverage (98%) so it’s hard to moan about something here.

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.
