Lenovo Legion 5 can be equipped with AMD Ryzen 5 4600H or AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, and we used the Ryzen 7 version for this review. Also, we will see Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650Ti configurations, like the one we are testing today, but also Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 options. Or at least, that was announced back in April, but for now all Legion 5 15ARH05 are configured with 1650Ti or 1650 and I cannot say for sure if we will see actual RTX2060 versions in the market or not.

The model we tested has a dual-channel 16GB DDR4 3200 configuration, and a 1TB Western Digital PC SN730 NVMe SSD for storage. The display is based on a 15.6″ IPS with Full HD resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and 100% sRGB Gamut & DisplayHDR 400 certifications, while the stereo sound system consists of two Harman Kardon speakers.

It is worth mentioning that there are 3 configurations available for display, more precisely the top configuration we are testing today, but also an FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS (120 Hz / 45% NTSC) option and an FHD ( 1920 x 1080) IPS (60 Hz / 100% sRGB) option.

In terms of connectivity we are dealing with an Intel WiFi 6 AX200 802.11AX + Bluetooth 5.0 wireless solution, a Realtek Gigabit LAN controlle, 4 x USB 3.1 gen 1 connectors, 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C connector, 1 x HDMI connector, 1 x RJ-45 connector and in / out audio connectors.

Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 is available in two configurations, depending on the battery and storage. The version that can accomodate a 2.5 “storage unit has a 60 Wh / 4000 mAh battery, while in the case our our review unit, we have two NVMe slots and a battery with a capacity of 78 Wh / 5335 mAh.

    Thanks for another great review, thinking about getting this laptop for development first/gaming second. Please can you give your thoughts on this…
    1) Can the memory be expanded up to 32GB of memory with 2x16GB sticks
    2) Can you switch to the IGP and if so what is the affect on temp/battery life?
    3) Can you work with it on your lap if not playing an GPU intensive game (not too hot )?
    4) What is the keyboard like for touch typing?
    Thanks again.

    Hi Andrew,

    I am glad you like it.

    1 – as far as I know yes, to do have access to the memory and you can use 2 x 16GB sticks

    2 – Not so sure about that

    3 – When you are not doing heavy duty stuff you can use it in your lap, but that is not recommended in general with laptops that have the intake on the bottom side

    4 – I found the keyboard to be very pleasant in daily use, ferm but precise

    Not as far as I know of

  5. Hey Monstru, keep on the great job.
    Would you recommend the Tuf A15 or Legion 5 for build quality and thermals?
    99 degrees sounds really toasty. I plan to use the laptop for work in civil engineering so good cpu usage and a decent graphics is advised.

    TUF A15 is in the same line with IdeaPad Gaming 3. Legion 5 is in the superior segment, with the ROG models.
