The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is one of my favorite gaming laptops of 2021. It’s been a few years since I last worked on a Legion gaming laptop, as I always linked Lenovo with its ThinkPads for business or school use, much like Dell’s were back in the day. As a result, I never considered it a contender in the gaming laptop scene. But boy was I wrong.

The Legion 5 Pro config that arrived for review was pretty stacked for only $1,650. However, the SSD is only a 512GB model, which is a bit small given how big game installs are getting. It’s a tough call to make when it comes to hard drive size vs. overall cost, but at least an SSD can always be upgraded.
