Recently, Lenovo has been quite dominant over the market with its amazing products. From its 2-in-1 convertible laptops to super-fast gaming laptops, it’s spreading its wings all over the tech industry. 


The Lenovo Legion 5 is powered by a Ryzen 7 4800 processor. Equipped with 8 Cores and 16 Threads, it can give a speed of 2.9 GHz. Let’s have a look at its memory and storage now:

The Gaming Laptop under 85000 has 16GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM and a storage of 512 GB SSD which can be further extended up to 32GB DDR4 RAM (memory) and 1TB PCIe SSD/1TB 6.3cms (2.5) 7200RPM HDD (storage), respectively. 

For a gaming laptop in this budget range, there seems to be a fair amount of storage.  Most similar-priced laptops only have a 256GB SSD, which is a small amount of storage that can’t be expanded further and won’t be adequate if you’re a gamer who wants to install many games.

It also has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti GPU graphics, a lightning-fast accelerator for your favorite games, and the most recent releases.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

How long can the laptop last while gaming?

On average, the Lenovo Legion 5 can provide you with 2-2.5 hours of non-stop gaming. However, some laptops, as exceptions that are tougher, can last more depending upon their processor being used.

Nvidia VS AMD graphics card? Which one is better?

You should go for an Nvidia Graphics card. The reason being, Nvidia typically outperforms its competitors in terms of value and functionality, and its GPUs are more efficient at every price range. They are well-suited to the expected workload of the vast majority of games.

Are the RAM and processor upgradable?

The processor can’t be upgraded while both RAM, as well as storage, could be upgraded up to 32 GB and 1TB, respectively. 

Why does my laptop get so hot after some time?

Gaming laptops are extremely hot due to their high-performance processors and specialized graphics cards, which generate a lot of heat when used.

The ideal CPU temperature for gaming is between 75°-80°C, with a range of 75°-80°C on average.

Moreover, Advanced Cold Front Cooling has included the Lenovo Legion 5 15 Gaming Laptop. The Coldfront 2.0 system cools and distributes heat via a dual-channel thermal system of 67 liquid crystal polymer-coated fan blades and copper pipes, no matter how hard you push it. As a result, your Legion laptop will perform at its best. 

Is it possible to limit the full battery charge to, say, 80%?

Yes. Within the Legion Vantage Dashboard, you may choose Battery Conservation Mode Power Setting. When the computer is plugged in most of the time, this power management setting should be enabled all of the time. To help keep the internal battery healthy, it will only charge it to 60% capacity.
