That is the non-Pro version. Once you have seen the beautiful QHD+ 500 nits screen on the Pro you will know it is very much worth it.

    Afterburner OSD.

    Tdp for gpu should be 130w, which it is. However there is a bug which can result in it being max 80w for no apparent reason. Laptop needs a restart / bios disable battery option to fix it. It is intermittent. Great laptop otherwise.

    Got this for my daughter last week. Excellent piece of kit...including the 300w footwarmer charger.

    Seriously though, the screen is excellent, and the CPU/GPU are plenty good enough for all but a serious gamer.

    The only minor gripes I had were that I could not add the 4 zone RGB keyboard or increase the SSD size without having to get a customised build from Lenovo for a heck of a lot more. In fairness, though, for this price I can't complain.

    I'm also planning to install an additional SSD anyway - as I think this will not invalidate the warranty on. Legion Pro.

    They don't care about opening the laptop up as long as you don't damage it during your maintenance - and even if you do most of the repair techs they send out for it don't care at all so no worries.

    3060 is a bit mismatched for that CPU though, I'd rather have the 3070 model.

    Got the 3070 model for £1199 however that price doesn't come along often so this is still a good deal as the screen is superb and worth the extra over the 1080p models. The 256gb ssd is a joke for the rest of the spec but with ssd prices so low it's hardly a dealbreaker and with 2 m2 slots it's not a lot to get 4tb of ssd storage in these. The cpu is a monster and one of the best out there not far behind the M1 Pro (ignoring the desktop only threadrippers).

    3070 seems to cost a lot more these days - hardly any laptops on the Lenovo website have them so it would seem they are in short supply.

    I've just bought this laptop with a 3070. I followed a video that shows entering the bios and setting the gpu to 'overclock' which should bring up the tdp up.

    I managed to get the 3070 model with 1tb for 1500. Big jump in price compared to this offer though. Curry's had them in stock but have been sold out for a while

    Makes no difference to me. I got multiple high refresh rate monitors for gaming and would not use laptop display anyway. And I also game at night 100% of the time. Makes no sense to have a screen with 500nits. You can also buy the 3070 laptop for around 1150-1200

    It seems they have setup their website now to only let you use one code - even on the education website which doesn’t seem to let you use a code at all now (as you already have your discount I suppose). Might mean that Lenovo laptop bargains are a bit rarer now…

    Yes, the whole point of a laptop is playing your fav games in a coffee shop/office or around a friends house. Rather buy a desktop 3060 ti for £900 than a 3060 laptop if i was staying at home 90% of the time. 30% better fps on a desktop 3060 ti, more double ram/ssd space for the same price.

    Makes more sense to game on a larger screen, if available. (I did sell my high-end pc, but kept my monitors) I also take laptop to work to game when it's really quiet. (triple monitor setup at work)

    I also had a desktop replacement custom laptop from Clevo in 2018. Always used it with external displays except for cases when I was on the move.

    Yeah, rtx 3060 mobile performance is equivalent to the desktop rtx 2060. There's plenty of benchmarks and comparison videos on YouTube.

    But yes I agree with you. If you're never leaving house, no need to buy a laptop.(nornally)

    That was not entirely the case in the last year or two. Loads of people were buying gaming laptops because they couldn't get a reasnably priced GPU for their PC build. Meanwhile laptops were readily available in stock.

    However I saw that the GPU stock dropped in Scan yesterday morning lasted a couple hours (as opposed to 1-2 minutes last year) so it must be getting slightly better now.

    What a crock of Your personal setup doesn't come into it no one gives a monkeys. The QHD screen is superb and hugely better than the 1080p screen including the 144hz one. I've had both - the 5P 2060 with 144hz and now the 5 pro with 3070 QHD 165hz. The upgrade was absolutley worth it.
