Yes. Most of their lighter laptops have 47WHr battery. Since its using the 45W 4800H and 90W RTX 2060, can expect shorter battery life compared to the 4800HS Asus Zephyrus. Maybe wait for reviews to be out.

I wonder whether 15r lite can use the APU instead of the 2060 during low load as to save more battery.

it should be able to, but kinda defeat the purpose if you want to use it as a portable gaming laptop

Yeah, but Legion 5 no 2060 option and Zephyrus price quite a bit higher with smaller screen and no webcam. Also both Legion and Zephyrus have no SD card reader, but the Apex have which is useful. When gaming best to plug the power in anyway.

it comes with everything except:
1. storage
2. ram

that's it.

I believe the options for CPU and GPU are all decided when they order from their ODM's catalog. Also, I think AS has moved away from Clevo to TongFang. Latter is also an ODM.

Legion 5 is a better built laptop than Apex, you need to wait a few more months for 1660ti or 2060 option.

The main flaw of the apex 15r lite is the battery, the battery capacity is too small compared to legion 5 , omen 15 and Asus tuf a15 (90whr variant). FYI, the same laptop design is selling in China for 7000rmb ~ 1380sgd

The cooling capabilities i will put it on Legion 5 over the Apex.

But i placed my money on G14 instead. Money is not an issue then G14 is the way to go. To me i dont need the webcam and if i want to use a card reader, i do have my own card reader to usb. It is of better speed than most laptops that comes with UHS 1 speed reader.

To me, if you are walking around and want a better compact size, the G14 is the way to go. But since i see Apex and the Legion 5 this time round. I will take the Apex instead but mind you, the performance of a 90w gpu inside will probably be throttling down more than usual.

Legion 5 is being limited by the gpu performance. If budget is a concern then yes. Buy legion 5. If more for gaming gtx1660Ti and 2060 will be needed.

And yes the Apex 15 Lite need to consider the battery also. Too small. I am sure one do not just buy a laptop for gaming only. One will still do other light things on it etc. But when you have a beast cpu and gpu, but equipped with the small battery, it is hard to last long outside. Basically you got to bring a charger and laptop wherever you go. So to me, it will be added weight.

When im using my G14 for light task. I can easily surpass more than 10hrs usage outside without a charger.

i read in the notebookreview forum that ODM released this small capacity battery to initial retailers first, so maybe there will be bigger batteries for those who wait.

It's a company in KL/Malaysia but with a branch in JB as well....so you need to travel there for warranty purposes.

Pricing wise quite competitive.

RM4843/SGD1600 cash for the following options with their mid year sale items (colour calibration, Kryonaut thermal paste)

Ryzen 4800H
RTX2060
2 X 8GB 3200mhz DDR4
500gb NVMe
Windows 10 no license
120hz display.

At AS you'll be paying SGD 1915 (Colour Calibration, Kryonaut thermal paste options included) but with a 144hz screen and local warranty.

So choice is yours whether its worth spending SGD315 to travel up north to collect and for warranty purposes. If not for COVID maybe it is.
