  • Fun fact: This new laptop can also come with Freesync and Gsync and the display is over 500 nits and the gpu is powered at over 140W!! On paper it's a beast! and probably burn a hole in your wallet.

  • I have Legion 5 Pro 4600h for a few weeks now and it is an impressive machine, once you overcome some nuisances caused by bad drivers, it runs smoothly. The most annoying thing is the coil whine, heat exhaust on the side that heats your hand with a mouse (seriously Lenovo, what the hell... gaming laptop with exhaust on the side in 2021?!) and the charger brick, which is HUGE...

  • i'd like to see laptop makers put smaller batteries in their laptops, when it comes to high-end gaming laptops. I think most people who buy these buy them cause they are portable in the way you have desktop level performance with a screen attached to it. Not so much because you can run it without power. I mean, who ever runs their gaming laptop on battery other than maybe a quick surf and the likes. I say: make the batteries smaller and the heatpipes larger.

  • If there are any newer people here I would recommend playing at high preset for most games with vsync ON. The frame rate will be capped at 165 meaning your computer won't work on frames above that, making it run cooler and more efficiently.

  • I use a real keyboard /w 10key and a mouse hooked up to my USB-C hub /w built in Gigabit Ethernet. I can hit my keys so hard during a gaming session. I would break my laptop keyboard. $20USD to $60USD for keyboard compared to $1,500+ for a new laptop. But, I would prefer a shutter over my webcam like I have on my Lenovo S340 (intel (AMD was OFS)) my only peeve about Lenovo and many others. There is no easy access to upgrade memory and SSD or HDD. Doors on the bottom to access these would be nice.

  • I love my Gigabyte Aero, particularly the super bright screen that can easily compete with direct sunlight at certain angles. That said, I much prefer the keyboard of this Lenovo. Having alternate functions backlit rather than printed makes for much easier use. I find it difficult to see the charcoal print on black of the Gigabyte to be frustrating even in a well lit room. Backstage, at night or really any low-light situation mean you either have to carry a pen light or memorize what key has which alternates assigned to them. Additionally, I would prefer the step down arrow keys to give both a visual and physical break between the qwerty and numpad sides of the keyboard. I can't begin to estimate how often I've gone for my right shift, only to hit the up arrow and insert the letter in the previous line or reached for the up arrow in an RTS or texted based game only to hit the end key and have to restart from my last save. My one criticism of this Lenovo is the cooling solution. While it can certainly keep up in a climate controlled, room sitting on a desk, the real world isn't so friendly. While it certainly won't apply to everyone, I find myself setting my laptop on soft surfaces such as my legs, padded desks, chairs, car covers, etc. I also find that I am occasionally outside in direct sunlight, in an un-air-conditioned building or near some other heat source, such as someone's gaming tower running a stress test. With the Gigabyte, I have thick feet that wrap the corners around the intake and give it a fighting chance in even the worst conditions. With the Lenovo, the long foot across the back doesn't provide a cavity for the intake when on softer surfaces and doesn't shield the intake from the heat being expelled through the side venting radiators. Overall, had THIS Lenovo been around when I last upgraded my laptop, I would likely have gone with it if the screen nits had been about the same and just added my own feet to the corners if thermals became an issue.
