Review – Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 – AMD Ryzen 7 4800H – ENGLISH Version

Scris de: , in categoria: Notebook, in 19 June, 2020.

Design & build quality


Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 keeps the wedge design we first saw on Y530, with the vast majority of the connectors placed behind the display, and also the same placement of the intake and exhaust grills. However, there are also a number of subtle differences, such as the size of the exhaust grills, which are significantly larger than what we saw on Legion Y530 and Y540, and also the placement of the webcam on the upper side of the display, and the fact that it now has a privacy shutter.

The arrow keys are placed a little bit lower than the general line of the keyboard, and the NumPad keys are slightly larger. Also, the touch pad no longer has physical keys, as was the case with Y540. Last but not least, the speakers are now oriented to the side, not the front.

Overall, Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 keeps the successful design of the Y540 family, bringing a series of well thought improvements, practically refining the recipe of a powerful but elegant gaming notebook, which we can also use during a business meeting.

    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.
