I unabashedly still prefer a 17.3-inch gaming laptop over the more popular 15.6-inch form factor (and smaller sizes), and if you do as well, head over to Lenovo and check out the Legion 5. There’s a promo code that knocks $215.49 off the price, making this a very compelling deal.
The regular web price for this config is $1,429.99, but if you input coupon code SAVE15NOW (case sensitive, so hit the caps lock or shift key), it knocks the price down to $1,215.49. And what exactly do you get for the money? Quite a bit, actually.
This is a newer config built around AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H processor, an 8-core/16-thread chip with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.2GHz max boost clock, and 8MB of L3 cache. Importantly, the CPU is based on AMD’s Zen 2 architecture, the same as what powers the Ryzen 3000 series on the desktop.
For graphics and gaming, it wields a GeForce RTX 2060, and it appears to be the full powered version (read: not Max-Q). Sure, Turing is a little less sexy now that Ampere is here, but Nvidia has not yet announced any mobile GPUs based on Ampere and likely won’t until next year.
