Item of Note:
There IS a 2.5” hard drive caddy/cable with this model. Also the 2nd M.2 slot does show up if you put a NVME in there (not sure about SATA m.2 as I didn’t have one to test). It is standard 80mm size, same as the main slot, and seems to have extra room above/below it so I believe something double sided would fit, as would something with a SMALL heatsink on top (like say the Adata Swordfish one).
Most of the other gaming laptops in the $750-1100 range have dim ~250 nit screens with awful <50% color gamuts. This one, 300nit rated (~330 actual based on reviews) 144hz and 100% srgb. It is striking, you won’t find a screen like this in this price range elsewhere.
Then you have a 8c/16t 4800H processor, which netted just under 4700 on Cinebench R20 in Performance Mode. For reference, my desktop running a Ryzen 3700X 8c/16t scores between 4600 and 4800 depending on background software and performance settings.
The ram is ideal, 3200mhz, 16gb, you don’t want any less because that’s the lower limit for gaming and productivity, and you don’t want any more because each 8gb is about 3watts of power consumption. Not sure if it supports 32gb, I can’t see 16gb being the limit but the Lenovo Support responders in Q&A here seem to think it is.
It would be nice if they had any prebuilt options with the 80wh version, but they don’t, and I took a star off for that. Most of us would gladly pay an extra $50+ for that option. And I don’t feel like waiting 5+ weeks (2 months? 3?) for a custom one just to get it. That being said, with proper settings this 60wh can be sufficient.
*Quiet Mode (fn+q until power led turns blue)
*Battery Save mode on (click on battery icon, slide all the way to left)
*Hybrid Mode on (this is ESSENTIAL, it shuts off the dedicated graphics card when not needed)
*In Advanced Power Settings, adjust all of the AMD, Wireless, etc settings to their most ‘battery saving’ option
Doing all that I’m getting over 5 hours browsing the internet, longer if I have the internet open and am mostly working in excel or word (ie: normal school work/reports for office/etc). For instance, editting this review in the Amazon window, 4.1 hours remaining w/ 55% (7.5 hours total est). 7-8 hours watching Youtube @720p in Edge. Brightness at whatever battery saver drops it to when it’s on high to begin with. I intend on trying to swap in an 80wh when the parts are available.
The fit/finish and overall feel of the unit hits above its price point. The keyboard is exceptional for productivity, aside from the slightly cramped numpad. The touchpad is responsive. The rear I/O ports are great for desktop duty. But lets be real, Lenovo doesn’t exactly have a great reputation when it comes to customer service and turnaround times for repairs. None of the laptop manufacturers do though really, save Apple. My last Lenovo, a Y700, lasted over 5 years. I figure, get it, do some stress testing on the processor/GPU (Cinebench, Furmark), watch some movies and do some white/black backgrounds to check for dead pixels, and cross your fingers. To extend warranty through them is $50/100/175 for 1/2/3 extra years respectively, I personally am planning at least the $50 for an extra year.
There is one drawback, this thing gets hot. I was expecting better thermals as I tested out a Legion 5 with the 4600H + 1650ti combo a while back. I would say this one runs ~5c average hotter across the board, and will spike to 95-100C+ if you’re doing something intense like Cinebench or Flight Sim 2020. In Flight Sim, average CPU temps over a 20 min flight were ~76c, CPU Die avg was ~85C. Temps are lower playing less demanding games, and even normally demanding games like AC Origins CPU avg was low 70’s, so not terrible. I spent some time looking into this, and apparently these hopped up gaming laptops hitting 90-100C is ‘okay’, even if I don’t really like or trust it. Also, the only option I know of that actually runs cooler than this with similar hardware is the Omen 15 AMD, so if temps are a priority may want to check that platform out. The Asus Tuf’s are as hot if not hotter, and the Dell G5 SE is a small portable sun. However, you do get something for this heat, the aforementioned Cinebench scores blow the competition out of the water, I still can’t believe it’s on par with my desktop processor.
This thing runs warm, looks good (if you like the aesthetic), has a phenomenal spec sheet for the price, and has best in class screen for a non special-order low-mid budget prebuilt. Would recommend, with the one slight caveat regarding heat.
If you're not willing wait to RTX 3000. This laptop is the best bang for the buck. The build quality is good. Fan is quite and powerful. Love it.
I've been using the laptop now for a week. It's much better than what I thought. Super quite when you need it be quite. Powerful when you need it to be powerful. I actually returned the Helios 300, which I bough for 999 as well on a deal. Helios 300 has RTX 2060 which is not so different from 1660 Ti (Don't let them fool you). .With helios noise at idle is just unbearable, Intel heat is ridiculous as well and the build quality doesn't come close Legion 5. Legion 5 Beats it at all the way. .
The sound is really decent for a laptop. As far as gaming, I have only played RBI Baseball 2020 and it looked really good with no lag. The fans are fairly quiet as they don't drown out the speakers when running. All programs have booted up quickly and so far I haven't had to reboot due to any program freezing. All in all, I'm really satisfied. I will revisit the review if any other problems arise.
However, something is wrong.
First of all, I always check hard disk whenever I buy a laptop since I sometimes experienced receiving used laptop instead of new. It happened to this laptop. I check hard disk and it was turned on 208 times before.It might be program error but as far as I know, they are pretty accurate(crystal disk info) It looks new but might be not. Maybe I am unlucky. I will post another review later after I investigate more.
So, My purchase date and warranty start date are different.
Usually, warranty starts when I first install Windows and turn on laptop first time.
This laptop had started warranty about more than 1 month ago, it doesn't any make sense to me.
I talked about it with Amazon customer service and what they said is 'just return it',
So disappointing so far.
Top reviews from other countries
- 144 Hz screen with good color, good response time. Max brightness is pretty bright on a white background but not a dark background
- Thin screen bezel makes my laptop smaller than my older 15 inch laptop.
- The screen can open 180 degree, not that I use it at all but it's nice to show it off
- Web cam has a physical slide cover for good privacy. Little things like this just makes me love my laptop more.
- Great hardware for the price
- Amazingly powerful CPU. I was able to get 4.6k score with cinebench r20 on performance mode.
- GPU is powerful enough for most games. It's more powerful than my GTX 1060-6GB on desktop
- SSD is super fast, has an additional SSD or HDD slot which means you can add either a SSD or a HDD.
- Build quality is great and solid. Looks very clean and pleasing.
- Keyboard looks clean and cap lock buttons have lighting. Back light is very nice. The keys has a slight curve and it's pretty cool.
- Fn key covers the most important functionalities like sound level and brightness
- Fn+Q is just great for switching performance modes quickly
- Speaker is quite loud
- Thermal is great, when stressing the CPU, it only goes up to 85 C and never thermal throttle. It cools down very fast once the stress is over. Similarly for the GPU
- In the lenovo vantage software, there is a conservation mode which will not charge your battery until it goes below 50% or something. It makes battery last longer if your laptop is plugged in most of the time.
- Screen brightness doesn't seem linear. Most of the time I have to use light level 8+. The levels below 8 just seems too dim. Only the highest 3 levels are usable
- Touch pad is not clickable anywhere. Top left and top right is not clickable. As you move up the touch pad, it gets harder to click down.
- It was hard to pry open the bottom panel to install a second hard drive. The build quality is too good that it's hard to open.
- The 2 USB ports are at the back and it's inconvenient. Most of the time when I plug in my USB, I plug it on the side. But 1 on each side is pretty nice. I would rather have 2 on each side than 2 on the back.
- The numpad has small keys. Spacing between keys is a bit big and I need to get used to.
- This model doesn't offer RGB keyboard backlight
- The function key doesn't allow turning on/off WIFI or bluetooth. It also doesn't allow turning off the screen.
- When volume is turned up, you can feel the vibration of the speaker under your hand
- The body has some soft rubber covering and that might get sticky in the future
- I noticed on balanced mode, the fan still runs with a bit of noise even when the CPU were always below 10%. I would be more happy if it runs quiet until the CPU gets warmer and increase the fan speed more. Basically a manual fan control would be perfect. The ultra quiet mode in the BIOS doesn't seem to work for me.
- The SSD and WIFI card area can get quite warm and the fan doesn't really cool it.
Will keep updating as I notice the little goods and bads during everyday use.
L19C4PC1: with regular length connection cable
L19M4PC1: with extended length connection cable
These 2 are fully compatible with this model, as long as you can find one.
Update: Unit started overheating today, even idling it is up over 60 Celsius despite having tons of air flow from the bottom, keeps randomly shutting down as temperature spikes. Tried updating firmware to no effect. Returning as I'm still within first 30 days.
Like the unit but sadly can't recommend it.
Previous Review: Very good unit with 8 core processor and 1660ti. Handles everything I can throw at it, although it can hit 90 Celsius under full load. Still better than everything else besides the HP Omen for temperatures. Uses a Samsung SSD rather than the slower and more common SK Hynix SSD in most laptops.
Also a very good programming laptop due to a ton of cores, compiling code goes very quickly.
One star off do to Amazon shipping US units to Canada, which will likely create warranty issues if they crop up later on. Warranty only shows 11 months left on Lenovo's own website.
The IPS 144Hz screen is fantastic! I have a 144Hz TN Monitor and this laptop’s screen blows it away with the colour vibrancy. It’s not as fast as a TN panel but if you put the screen on Over Drive (from the Lenovo Vantage software), it comes very close.
The keyboard is only in white backlight, but I feel like it adds a more refined look as opposed to an RGB lit keyboard. The keys have a nice satisfying feeling when you type on them as well as using it for playing games.
As for the sound of the fans, it wasn’t too loud. Of course gaming laptops will have audible fans during full load but it didn’t really bother me. The CPU would reach 91C but then go back down to the low 70s and high 80s. It didn’t thermal throttle at all. As for the 1660 Ti, the hottest it got for me was 70C at about 2 hrs of gaming. Pretty good.
And no I’m not an influencer. I bought this with my own money.
- Increíblemente poderosa en el área de CPU, Cinebench R20 da un valor de 4200 en modo normal, y 4500 en modo de alto desempeño.
- El SSD es un Samsung PM981a, la versión OEM del 970 EVO, así que vuela, 3500 MB/s de lectura y 2950 MB/s de escritura.
- Una pantalla muy superior a las disponibles en el mercado nacional, 144 Hertz, 99% de cobertura RGB y 300 nits de luminosidad.
- El desempeño de la GeForce 1660 Ti aunque no rompe ningún record es muy bueno.
- El diseño es muy utilitario para una laptop de juegos, nada de colores extravagantes, por lo que se puede usar como computadora de trabajo sin problema.
- Se puede actualizar sin problema la RAM, el almacenamiento (hay un puerto vacio para un NVME adicional) y el WiFi.
- El teclado es una gozada, en efecto no trae la letra "Ñ" pero se puede solucionar instalando "Inglés - Internacional" como la distribución del teclado en Windows, estará disponible con Alt+N.
- La batería dura 5+ horas una vez activado el modo híbrido.
- Poco bloatware, solo el molesto McAfee y Office 360.
- La distribución de los puertos USB es muy buena.
- No hay USB 3.1 Gen 2, todos los puertos están limitados a 5000 Mbps.
- No carga por USB-C, aunque esto ya sería pedirle peras al olmo.
- Es un poco difícil acceder al interior para actualizar los componentes.
- La cámara es 720p.
- No tiene lector de huellas ni Windows Hello.
LO QUE HAY QUE SABER:
- De fabrica viene configurada para siempre usar la tarjeta nVidia, lo que afecta severamente la bateria, si no vas a jugar siempre cámbiala a modo Híbrido.
- El asunto de la garantía puede ser difícil debido a que es un producto importado, aunque usualmente Lenovo es confiable.
- Incluye 1 mes de GamePass, solo tienes que iniciar sesión con tu cuenta de Outlook.
- Consumo de energía 25w en YouTube 1080p, 90w cuando hay uso extensivo del CPU (110w en modo de Alto Desempeño), y 160-190w cuando se juega un titulo AAA.
