Deal | Lenovo Legion Slim 5 gaming laptop with AMD Ryzen 5 7640HS and RTX 4060 now 33% off
Needless to say, the upcoming Black Friday frenzy and subsequent holiday shopping season is a good time to take advantage of some decent discounts on the latest 2023 gaming laptops from big manufacturers such as Lenovo. For instance, a current deal on a comparatively affordable RTX 4060-powered AMD configuration of the Legion Slim 5 might be worth a look for gamers in the sub-US$1,000 price range.
This specific gaming laptop sale is available at Best Buy, which is where the 16-inch variant of the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 can now be ordered for US$899 instead of the regular list price of US$1,349. This price applies to the configuration with an AMD Ryzen 5 7640HS Zen 4 processor and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card. This notebook is further equipped with 16GB DDR5-RAM and a 512GB SSD. The corresponding 33 percent or US$450 discount is one of the steepest markdowns we have seen thus far for the 2023 Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16.
Before ordering this Lenovo gaming laptop, please refer to our in-depth review of a slightly different RTX 4060-powered model of the Legion Slim 5. Please note that our particular test unit was equipped with a more powerful AMD Ryzen 7 as well as a higher-resolution QHD display, whereas the SKU that is on sale right now comes with the rather basic 144Hz IPS display with a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, a refresh rate of 144 Hz and 60% sRGB coverage. However, our findings regarding the GPU and chassis should also apply to this version. In the end, this offer may be worth consideration for 1080p gamers who are looking for a sleek notebook and don't want to spend more than US$1,000.
