The machine on sale packs a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) 120Hz anti-glare display, AMD Ryzen 5 5600H 6-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD. Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 with 6GB of dedicated memory does all the heavy lifting for graphics. 

Although we didn't test this configuration, we reviewed the AMD Ryzen 7 Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. It won us over with its excellent productivity and gaming performance. We were also fond of its fantastic keyboard with numpad. We gave the Legion 5 Pro a high rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars and our esteemed Editor's Choice award. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par with its sibling and deliver strong overall performance. 

By design, the Legion 5's all-black chassis makes it one of the best laptops for minimalists. With a weight of 5.4 pounds and dimensions of 14.1 x 10.2 x 0.98 inches, the Lenovo Legion 5 is heavier but nearly the same size as the HP 15 Gaming Laptop (4.9 pounds and 14.25.14 x 10.144 x 0.9 inches). It's slightly heavier but thicker than the Dell G3 15 (2019) (5.3 pounds, 14.4 x 10 x 0.8 inches). 

So if you're in the market for a powerful RTX 30 laptop, the Lenovo Legion 5 is a solid choice.
