While gaming is this laptop's bread and butter, the Legion 5 Pro also excels at photo and video editing. The laptop configuration we recommend has a 16-inch (2560 x 1600) 165Hz display and houses an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor with 16GB of RAM. To top it all off it also has Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3060 GPU with 6GB of graphics memory and a 512GB SSD.
Connectivity is nary an issue with the Lenovo Legion 5 pro. In total it features four USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, two USB-C Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, an Ethernet jack, and a headphone/mic combo port. If you somehow still find yourself needing more connection options beyond this, you could always opt for a USB-C hub, but I doubt it will be a problem.
