Thanks to Lenovo for sponsoring today's video! Check out the Lenovo Legion 5 at

AMD processors in laptops are getting really popular, and Lenovo has your wants covered with the Legion 5 gaming laptop. Linus shows it off, and yes, in ShortCircuit fashion, we pop open the hood to see how the cooling system works.

    @TheLightSilent This just isn’t true, I’ve had one of these laptops for a while now. Not even the low end one, 4800h and rtx 2060. There aren’t any driver issues, it doesn’t crash, they are very power and heat efficient. Also extremely quiet, don’t just write shit like this without first using the product. The Amd version is amazing and has no problems that you’ve mentioned, the only is that the finish attracts fingerprints which is the same on both the Intel and AMD.

    dang, buyers remorse. I bought the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 RTX 2060 16GB RAM version. as far as software goes it's more than I could dream for a laptop. The cooling sucks, but my philosophy at the time was: All laptops are a hot mess, I might as well get one that a higher base clock and consumes less power. I have since realized the error of my ways, but still, its an amazing laptop even if ASUS was dumb with the cooling.

Lenovo Legion laptops are the HEAVIEST of all laptops. That power supply is 2lb!! That laptop is 6lb. So if you are ok carrying 8lb then do buy it. And no, the ram IS upgradable, I went from 8 to 16. I am sad your channel is selling out and does not do real videos, you've lost the trust. You also said nothing about the dim screen which is not very bright at all. I can go on, but what's the point.

    Love LTT, but man, this review sucked. The 144hz screen is brighter than 60hz or 120hz - its worth the upgrade GPU - 1660ti or RTX 2060. In the legion 5, some RTX GPUs are limited 90W or smth like that, legion 5p("esports version") has 115W, so cheaper 1660ti might be the way to go...1650? Comeon son. CPU - 10750h aint end of the world, but 4800h is better thermal, battery and performance-wise(though some reviewers might disagree so there are exceptions to the rule).. There are also 80W battery variants that come without the HDD, which i prefer/bought, cause who needs it, if you got two slots for M2. And jeez, the ram is upgradable. Keyboard lighting and other features were not covered. No dislike though, cause still love ya =)

    Personally I couldn't get used to the high pitched noise the fans make under stress. I found out that more people had issues with that and yes, perhaps it's subjective. I don't think it was a defective unit for that matter. Don't get me wrong the overall build quality and performance was excellent and I didn't expect a silent machine by no means. Just be aware that if you're senstive to high frequencies it might bother you. Search here on YT and you will find an example demonstrating this. For anyone else I'm sure this is an awesome machine!
