Besides gaming, the Legion 5 Pro is also one of the best laptops for photo and video editing.

In our Lenovo Legion 5 Pro review, we were floored by its 16-inch (2560 x 1600) 165Hz display which delivers 500nits of brightness. We were also impressed by the laptop's excellent productivity and gaming performance. The Legion 5 Pro earned an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and our Editor's Choice award.
During multitasking tests, the laptop's AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU and 16GB of RAM hardware performed well. We bombarded it with 32 Microsoft Edge tabs, four of which played 1080p YouTube videos and a pair were streaming Twitch. With these running in the background, the laptop quickly loaded up websites. Even when we added a soccer game stream into the mix, there was no sign of slowing down.
Weighing in at 5.4 pounds and measuring 14 x 10.4 x 1.1 inches, the Legion 5 Pro is more portable than its main competitors. It's lighter than Acer's Predator Helios 300 (5.5 pounds, 14.3 x 10 x 0.9 inches) and Asus' ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition (6.6 pounds, 13.9 x 10.2 x 1 inches).
Simply put, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is a wise choice if you're looking for a PC to handle heavy productivity and gaming.
