Lenovo's Legion family of PCs offer some of the best gaming laptops money can buy. 

The Legion 5 in this deal on sale packs a 15.6-inch display (1920 x 1080), 2.9-GHz AMD Ryzen 7 4800H octa-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and a GTX 1650 Ti GPU with 4GB of graphics memory.

Although we didn't test this AMD model, in our Legion 5i (Intel) review, we found the laptop's clutter-free ports and good speakers impressive. More importantly, the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard's 1.5 millimeter key travel makes it comfortable and quick to type on. 

Performance-wise, you can expect this Ryzen 7 version of the Legion 5 to outperform competing Intel gaming PCs. In a recent benchmark face-off, the Ryzen 7 4000 series CPU outperformed Intel's 11th-Gen Tiger Lake processor. 

When you're not gaming, the Legion 5 AMD laptop is suitable for school or work day-to-day tasks. 

Weighing in at 5.5 pounds and measuring 14.1 x 10.2 x 0.98 inches, the Lenovo Legion 5 is heavier than, but nearly the same size as the HP 15 Gaming Laptop 15 (4.9 pounds and 14.25.14 x 10.144 x 0.9 inches). It's also slightly heavier but thicker than the Dell G3 15 (2019) (5.3 pounds, 14.4 x 10 x 0.8 inches). 

At $859, the Legion 5 is solid choice if you're looking for a cheap gaming laptop
