The Lenovo Legion 5i shares a general design style with the previous generation of Legion gaming laptops, with just a few visual changes. The keyboard now includes a full number pad on the right side, absent from the Legion Y740 and a welcome inclusion. Lenovo has improved it over past Legion laptops by making it, well, more normal.

It comes with a quad-core 10th generation Intel i5 processor, an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU and a 144Hz, 1080p 15.6-inch screen. You might have to sacrifice a few frames to achieve Ultra quality graphics, but that's to be expected with a gaming laptop at this price.

Lenovo brought the 10th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 H-series processors to this machine. Each configuration has a dedicated Nvidia graphics chip. The Legion 5i is one of the few all-plastic laptops that doesn't creak when I lift up, or adjust, the screen.
