Lenovo manufacturer's some of the best laptops including gaming-specific PCs. 

This Legion 5i laptop in this deal packs a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS display, a 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-10750H 6-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU with 6GB of graphics memory.

Although we didn't test this exact model, in our Legion 5i 15 review, we liked its clutter-free, well-placed ports and good speakers. We were also impressed by its 15.6-inch 1080p display which rendered a sharp, true-to-life picture. 

Design-wise, the Legion 5i 15's understated chassis and dusky, “phantom black” finish is ideal for minimalists. At 5.4 pounds and 14.3 x 10.2 x 0.9 inches, the notebook is on a par with competing laptops like the Dell G5 15 SE (5.5 pounds, 14.4 x 10 x 0.9 inches) and the MSI Alpha 15 (5 pounds, 14 x 9.7 x 1 inches ). 

The Legion 5i equips you with an island-style, white-backlit RGB keyboard with a full numpad. For those extended PC gaming sessions, shield-shaped, concave keys, adds an extra layer of comfort for your fingertips. 

In one test using the laptop's 4.2 x 2.8-inch touchpad, Windows 10 gestures such as pinch-zoom, two-finger scroll and three-finger tap performed well. 

As for non-gaming performance, the Legion 5i's Intel Core i7-10750H CPU and 8GB of RAM took just about everything we threw its way. It juggled all of 40 Google Chrome tabs, including a Twitch live stream, a Netflix film, a 1080p YouTube video, and Google Docs with zero lag, 

Just imagine how much multitasking you can do on this Legion 5i with 16GB of RAM.
