From a pure performance standpoint, it’s easy to see where the fanfare for the Legion 5 Pro is coming from. Not only is it priced remarkably well, but it’s also delivering above its weight class. Design-wise, it looks the same as most Legion 5 laptops before it except for a few things and most of it is a “blink and you’ll miss it” affair, like the screen being chinless as well as the slightly thicker body. It does gain a little bit of weight as it gets a 500 gram increase but it’s not substantial enough to push away owners.
That said, the Legion 5 Pro’s main selling point is its performance and we’ve only seen this type of behavior from boutique laptops sporting their equivalent desktop counterparts. This has been a practice that has faded in today’s laptop market but Lenovo has dared to push the limit at what they believe is acceptable to users. As we’ve seen, laptops powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs drive Lenovo laptops to be the most powerful devices ever made for gamers.
It is a scary thought that thick gaming laptops may see a return but the Legion 5 Pro doesn’t border on the older, 3” thick laptop spectrum but rather a slight weight increase to fulfill its desktop replacement aspiration and house its cooler.
So I saved this shot for last so you can see for yourselves how dense the cooling solution is on the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. All that cooling is spanning not only to the GPU and CPU, but also the M.2 SSDs and RAM themselves. This cooling has allowed the Legion 5 Pro to gain an excellent advantage versus our other units, making its 165hz 2560×1600 display not just a vanity inclusion but rather a compliment to its performance goals. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3070 GPU on this laptop punches above its weight-class and literally shows what max-out is. It’s an interesting design choice but what could be necessary to realize the full potential of the NVIDIA RTX 30 Series on laptops, pushing them to their absolute limits, and as our charts show, even beyond.
The Legion 5 Pro is available now in the Philippines with models available with both an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3070 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3060 for laptops, as well as either an AMD Ryzen™ 7 5800H Mobile Processor or an AMD Ryzen™ 5 5600H Mobile Processor. The laptop also comes with a free Legion Recon Gaming backpack worth PHP 2,995. As a desktop replacement for the new digital workforce, this is a great foundation system especially for those that insist on a laptop.
The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is also backed by a 3-year Premium Care warranty. With services like 24/7 direct hotline to technicians and an Annual PC Health Check, Premium Care goes beyond hardware provides an advanced and tailored level of care capable of reducing downtime and increasing efficiency.
