I was just about to order it then realised it was not a car battery.
Just purchased, think this is beat deal so far. Don’t want to dedicate time into researching and building a pc so this is excellent price point for me! Thanks OP

Given the same budget I'd much rather build:

MSI Tomahawk Max (ATX) / Mortar Max (MATX) - £89
Ryzen 2600 - £110 / 2700 - £139
16gb (2x 8gb) 3000/3200MHz - £55-60
Ventus RTX 2060 Super (8gb) inc. MW - £332
MP510 (480gb) - £60 / SX8200 (512gb) - £58
EVGA 500w BR - £42
Win 10 OEM - £10
ATX/MATX case of your choosing - circa £50

Some additional storage wouldn't go amiss, though this pre-built shares that issue.

Anyone have experience upgrading ram on this machine?
This is a great spec for the price.
Hot, if you build it yourself you can save about a tenner (or save £100 if you already have windows key).
...but then you wouldnt have the funky case

its an Intel CPU not AMD, 2666mhz ram is more than enough

margin of error territory between 2666 and 3200 , I would be more worry about that blower type 2060

Surely in such a small case blower is a better option than a 2 or 3 fan gpu exhusting back into the chasis?

How does this …How does this compare?https://www.awd-it.co.uk/awd-ryzen-5-3600-gtx-1660-super-16gb-ram-1tb-hdd-240gb-ssd-desktop-pc-for-gaming-en.html


it's difficult to compare these completely different systems, but one thing I would say is lenovo won't sell a system without an extortionate windows 10 licence. AWD will not put windows on it for you, meaning you can purchase one from eBay for £3, saving money to spend elsewhere.

Also - you would ideally want a larger m.2 drive on that system if spending that money

The 3600x / AIO CPU coolers are interesting optional upgrades at just a penny each! You're taking quite a hit on GPU performance with the 1660 Super, overclocking would make up some of the difference but they're a class apart.

Thanks for the breakdown. Legit. OEM Win 10 keys can be found for £10-£13 quid from G2A and cjs which is what this Legion will come with.
Retail copy of Win 10 won't be locked to hardware which is what you are quoting the price of yet the OEM key will give you the same functionality bar the hardware support.That makes this £640 to build.
Tempted by this.

So is this the best bang for the buck gaming PC at this price point? Not really been keeping up to date on gaming spec's so would welcome some feedback from the more knowledgeable here

I can sort of see the appeal of the case and form factor but I don't particularly rate the choice of components. I reckon the 6-core / thread CPU is a mistake and it'll be fitted with Intel's terrible stock cooler. The motherboard will be naff with very limited bios options. The blower card is probably the right choice for this case but I'd usually avoid them for thermals and noise. No idea what the SSD specs are but doubtful it will be high tier.

Haven't voted either way as I find building straightforward and enjoyable, but that may not apply to everyone.

Can connect to the PC using either USB cable or via a Bluetooth dongle. Is recognised on some gaming platforms (Steam I think, though has been while since I Googled it). For others, use a small piece of software that effectively makes the game detect that an Xbox controller is connected. All explained via quick Google search, which is how I did it for my son's PC.

Does this already have bluetooth and wi-fi connectivity?

The zoostorm has slower storage but more of it. The ssd in the lenovo is small but better if you ask me. If i had to buy one and they cos the same, id go lenovo.

But watch out for lenovo spyware! Search for "lenovo superfish" online. I was bitten by this!

Thanks for your help.

I think I will go for the Lenovo like you say as I cant find anything better for around that price. Although that superfish stuff does put you off a bit. Was always going to buy some extra basic storage as theres not enough here for everything and just use the given SSD for running games etc.

The very one comes with 3 years pick up and drop off warranty which seems better and longer than the one from Lenovo. Would you agree with that?

Computers get old quick. You wouldn't fix a 2yo one, you'd upgrade. Plus buying in th EU gives some cover (under various acts) for about 6 years. Just phone em and ask to speak to their legal dpt. I know people who've got loads of free cheese doing this when monitors have expired etc.


..but I'd self build, so whadda i know!
