Lastly, the Legion 5 is the most affordable option in the Legion Lineup from Lenovo. This year, Lenovo has launched the Legion 5 is two different display options: 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch display sizes. The larger 17.3-inch Legion 5 comes with an FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Display with 144Hz refresh rate, meanwhile the smaller 15.6-inch variant also sports FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Display but offers a slightly higher 165Hz Refresh Rate & 100% sRGB Color Accuracy.

The Legion 5 and 5 Pro will be the first one among the Legion Lineup to make their way on the shelves in March 2021. Lenovo is offering Legion 5 in two color variants: Phantom Blue with optional 4-zone RGB and a new Stingray White with Blue Backlighting.

The Legion 5 will be starting at a price of $770.00 in the United States and will be available in India for around Rs. 60,000. At such a great price, you can’t expect that much in any other gaming laptop.

Conclusion

The Lenovo Legion lineup is already considered as one of the best gaming laptops around the globe. As stated on Tom’s Guide, if Lenovo managed to fix the cooling issues from the last year’s design with its new Coldfront 3.0, no doubt, Legion 7 will be one of the best laptops to launch in 2021.
