Right now Lenovo are doing really well by all accounts. I have the older legion 5 with a 2060 and I'm very happy with it. Like people said, it's diminishing returns as far as price performance etc. So if you wanna spend a grand less and don't mind a 3070 rather than a 3080 etc get the other one... But as far as quality, I think all these legion laptops Lenovo are putting out have had nothing but good reviews, and I'm happy with the build quality on mine.
where does lenovo sit on a list of laptop manufacturers in terms of reliability and honouring warranty etc? Are7 they the Toyota's of the laptop world? (confused)
Not to mention legion 7 instead of 5.. the main reason why I prefer 7 is because of the full per key rgb
If you can share that would be great. Can't really see much on the Legion 7 apart from Jared's Tech which has minimum benchmarks on it
That was a decent deal, the 4300U is a really good chip for the money.
Correct got Ideapad 5 Ryzen 3 4300 8GB 128nvme for £283 Grade A damage box from curry's. Lenovo was worth it but not my budget.
Thanks for the info (y)
If you are not too fussed about the HD quality on one of the dual monitors you can get an Usb2vgapro2 adapter https://www.startech.com/en-gb/search?search_term=USB2VGAPRO2 Or can get a Targus docking station.
Would a casual gamer notice the difference between Intel i5 and AMD Ryzen 7? Ordered the Intel I5 version yesterday for same price - is it worth switching (confused)
Whilst I agree with your sentiments, you are probably posting this from a device which has quite a lot of components made in China. I know its virtually impossible to buy something without something chinese in it though.
You'll have to provide a list of alternatives then.
It's not a case of support - it's a case of where else you can get a competitive laptop these days that wasn't manufactured in the Middle Kingdom. Suggestions please.

I saw the 400 nit reference to on Google but all others showing 250 nits. Shame as would consider buying if it was 400 nits
This one will do 4k 60hz as it has HDMI 2.0 the Huawei one won't, not through HDMI nor DP (through USB-C) both are older versions. Other than that the Huawei seems like a great laptop for the money in my eyes.
That specific model is 300, if you look at the cheaper D model, that's only 250.
I am a Zenbook fan. But the Huawei is better, go for it. Both, screen and CPU are better. It also has a nice portable factor and good built quality, but Zenbook has this too.
https://www.awd-it.co.uk/awd-mb520-argb-ryzen-7-2700x-nvidia-gtx-1660-super-16gb-ram-desktop-gaming-pc.html ^prob the best 1660s deal around. Next one: for that higher gpu https://www.awd-it.co.uk/awd-ryzen-7-2700-rtx-2060-16gb-ram-240gb-ssd-desktop-pc-for-gaming.html Rumour pass on: Suppose to be an epic RTX2060 coming soon!. in the terms of 5600x/3060 at £950 but with a RTX2060 with a?.... no clue i only hear the little bits from this one.
Do you have any recommendations on buying a 1660 Super pre built system Sarden? Ive been buying components the last few months in the hope to have a full build by Xmas for my children and I've been aiming for a Ryzen 5 3600 and 1660 S combo. At the moment I have been keeping an eye on HotUkDeals for parts to grab a bargain here and there, I have an MSI A520M Pro board, Corsair Vengeance 16gb (3x8gb) RGB Pro 3200Mz DRAM, Crucial P5 500 GB m.2 SSD and a Crucial BX500 480 GB 2.5 SSD for extra storage. Is it worth carrying on this way in the hope the GPU market will come down, or am I better off buying pre built and upgrading things like the RAM which I've already bought. Or then sell the parts I have to reduce the overall cost of the new build? I'd appreciate your thoughts if you can spare the time.. which may help someone else in my position too... Cheers
Got someone asking me to spec an entry level gaming pic for them, they want to play cod warzone and the sims, budget £800 ish anyone able to offer some help?
Would this tornado R3 run new flight simulator if so what results to expect, Looking to budget but just want to play flight sim and a few other games GTA V ,call of duty At a steady frame rate 1080
Also eBay link is refurb. So would expect at least 20% lower price too.
Great bit of kit - Unfortunately AMD's lack of Thunderbolt makes it useless for me :( Come on AMD, add TB4, you have no excuse!
That's gaming on the laptop for you. The games push the cpu too much. You need to tell it not to use the cpu too much as it should use the gpu more. I was told if you turn off cpu turbo when gaming it should help or run cpu at 80%
I was checking some videos of gaming on 5800h & 3070 @ 1080p and 1440p and I'm most impressed (y)
I purchased an ASUS A15 laptop (for £1399 from Curry’s) with the same processor, graphics etc etc as this and must say I was really disappointed. It constantly crashed, got very loud / hot all the time (even when elevated with a fan stand for good airflow) and on my game of choice (Warzone) did not hit much more than 100fps.. I will be sticking with an equivalent desktop for the extra £100-200.
I wish I could be like you... nothing wrong with my 1060max q laptop but suppressing the urge to upgrade is cruel
I saw them, including this video. Hindsight is 20/20, at the time there were good reasons for this purchase (I wasn't originally going to buy a 11700k, it was supposed to be a 11900k from a prebuilt - the GPU was going to offset the cost considerably).
Did you not see any review before buying this mobo?
Yup :(. The worst part is because it's overpriced AF the motherboard is buggy AF (nobody buying it so I'm guessing they didn't try?). Actually, wait a minute - maybe I can get a refund if it's buggy - it's under a month old.... If I get a refund because of your comment I may kiss you
Every time I see these I cry a little inside. I got a 11700k + Z590 hero (I wanted Wifi 6e, ATX size + thunderbolt so it was basically intel or £1000+ for and 12core equivalent), I knew I was getting screwed on the price but I didn't expect it to improve this fast. Nearly a month ago I paid: - £383 for 11700k - £471 for Z590 hero motherboard (I bit the bullet because I thought it was going to get worse & I wanted the best features) I can't even upgrade CPU to a 12 core in the future or anything, I got rekt hard. Next time, I'm just going to buy what everyone else is buying.
Haven't got a motherboard, memory, PSU or case yet, and only got an old 750ti gpu and 500gb nvme for O/S, but got to start somewhere
Also just now order one for 125. Super happy 8) Who wanna try to order one just try to search seller:currys_clearance 3600 on eBay app every 5-10 mins and maybe you gonna be lucky. I spend like 1 hour and got lucky.
Just grabbed one a minute ago, they must keep adding /updating the listing (y) :D
Noooooooo i missed it
Thanks. Was looking at a Palicomp build but I have a decent enough Case and PSU so it'll be paying to save money. Just grabbed a Gigabyte B550 Aurus in case I go Ryzen 5000/6000 in coming years and 16GB of 3200mhz RAM off eBay to sort it out. Thanks again, new PC upgrade for £300 total!
Not according to the service manual (page 40): https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad3_hmm.pdf From the images it is the same board as the 15" model.
Think the 14 one is max 4Gb no sim slots
Had the 15" version, but from the service manual the 14" is basically the same internally (from memory same board, just longer cables between them). The 4GB RAM is soldered to the mainboard, but there is a DIMM slot to add to it:
Copy and paste jobs. It is CPU + motherboard as stated.
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Tc7tF8 ?? chip not supported
Anyone know what form factor and amount of RAM that’s installed please? “Assembled and tested by our technical team, the CPU, cooler, motherboard and memory are assembled with BIOS settings configured ready to be installed into a case.”
This would be perfect if was itx for tiny build with Pico PSU.

It’s like £130 more but much more powerful in terms of gfx. I think the Currys legion 5p is the best price / performance there is at £807 though. The 2060 in that thing will tear through anything and outperforms lower power limit 3060s you seen in many other brands (the Lenovo one linked above is a beast though) it’s better value over this and prob any other deals floating around
Yup wish I did that too. I might actually get it and send the black ones back to amazon. Will look really nice with white sticks of ram too
Great, will get it now. Think I’m going to go for white to match the gpu. Happy gaming mate (y)
Its just plug and play mate. Tbh I didn't even buy it for the speed as I don't notice any difference as the pc is lightning fast. I bought it for the rgb. In a couple of weeks I'll buy another 16gb so the 4 slots are full lol. Look really nice in the dark.
Hi Kris, sorry to bother you again, but I’m about to buy the rgb ram you posted. Are there any issues going from 3000 to 3600, or is it just plug and play? Thanks in advance (y)
That's what my boy is also playing now lol fortnite. I've put the rtx on for him all max settings and he's still getting 70fps+
