The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (16, Gen 9) with a Ryzen 7 8845HS Hawk Point APU and an RTX 4070 GPU is currently on sale at a substantial $509 off the list price. Additionally, with 16 GB of upgradable DDR5 memory, 1 TB of storage, and a 165 Hz 16-inch panel, the machine has all the markings of a solid mid-range gaming laptop.

We reported earlier this month that a Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 9 configuration with a Ryzen 7 7735HS CPU and an RTX 4070 laptop GPU is on sale for a massive $558 discount on the list price. While the deal is still up for grabs, gamers who want extra performance and are willing to spend a bit more can now get a Legion Slim 5 Gen 9 with a Ryzen 7 8845HS Hawk Point APU, an RTX 4070 GPU, and 16 GB of RAM for only $1,250.99 (Buy it now from Lenovo).

According to slickdeals, this is the lowest price for the Legion Slim 5 gaming laptop which was retailing for over $1,400 two months ago.

When it comes to the actualy capability of the machine, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16 on sale should provide stellar mid-range gaming performance thanks to the high-end CPU and GPU. Per our testing, the Ryzen 7 8845HS resides in the upper echelon of laptop CPUs with Cinebench R23 Multi-Core and Single-Core scores of 15,889 and 1,716 respectively. Combined with the RTX 4070 laptop GPU, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 9 will have no trouble running even the most demanding games and productivity tasks.

In addition to solid performance, the Legion Slim 5 16 should also please gamers and media watchers alike with its 16-inch IPS display with a 1600p resolution and AMD FreeSync Premium. The panel also boasts a 165 Hz refresh rate, 350 nits of brightness, and 100% coverage of the sRGB gamut.

Finally, the laptop also brings a healthy mix of ports with two Type-A, two Type-C (one with DisplayPort and Power Delivery), an HDMI 2.1 out, and a 3.5 mm jack, to name a few.

Put simply, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 9 is a worthy mid-range option for folks who want to enjoy strong performance without needing to shell out a ton of cash.
