What do you think of the normal legion 5 as above?

Posted from PCWX using A simple life, not a simple thing ðŸ™*ðŸ*»

If you not in this thread you might not think so much and get it at a price which you are comfortable with.

BUT... you knew 5 PRO is selling at 30% before and you will find that it's more expensive paying more for a lower specs.

5 PRO $2699 - 30% = $1889.30
5 with Bundles + Office 365 = $2199

Buying direct have higher shopback discount (Now 4.5% instead of 3%)
Buying from Shopee lesse shopback discount but got coupons, especially you can snatch those high value ones.

Buy from Lazada $2199 -$50 vouchers and the $100 vouchers just ended...else it's -$150 before Credit card vouchers and shopback.

imo, seems like the Legion Pro more worth it, just $300 difference for bigger screen +RTX 3070.

I think lenovo is trying to match the retail price outside hence they remove the massive discount. Is like a slap in their own face selling cheaper then authorize dealer.


nonetheless gxgx to those tat buy the legion 5 pre order !

Means if you did not get the 30% earlier, it will be hard to decide now to go for the normal or pro version.

What are your considerations then?

I missed the 30% but when in stock, google and found 10% & 22% code.

Now seems like only 10% and 5% available.

Not sure when will the next code coming, how many % and for how long....

If you’re doing video editing & other professional work, you will value higher mem bus & 8GB VRAM of 3070.
Pure gaming, 3060 might be worth considering

You have alternatives to the 3060?

Finally got time to dismantle the bottom panel yesterday.

for so many years, i never had a problem with dismantling laptops for upgrade.. this Legion 5 Pro really make me sweat like mad.. it end up making my opening tool break as well. :s13:

Left side is my spare NVMe 512GB.. right side is the one that came together with it.

comes with 8gb x2 16GB DDR4 sodimm ram.

So difficult to disassemble the backlid?
Cant really spot the existing SSD. Is there only room for one additional SSD slot? Presume the long one?

The existing is covered by the Black backplate on the right and the left, just above battery is added by user.

For those wanting to squeeze out max gpu perf..

disable the hybrid mode in lenovo vantage.

You won't run with the igpu, but you will gain more fps in certain games.

:D
