Got one for myself. Extremely satisfied with it. It has the 144hz screen which is not the troubling one that came with the 120hz version.

This deal maybe only warm as the price has been trending downward, but I thought people should know there is a great deal on a gaming laptop that has great thermals and will play just about any current game on high settings no problem on the laptop screen.

Price is now in title, my bad y'all.

Does anyone know if this has a secondary spot to install HDD memory?

I am presuming there is, provided some of the configurations on Lenovo's website has SSD and HDD combinations. Can anyone confirm?

yes, there is a second NVME slot there , and you need to remove the 2.5HDD case on top of it, you can choose from 1 extra nvme or 1 extra 2.5 HDD , but not both.
Besides, if you choose 2nd NVME you will have the room for a larger battery

compatible 80wh battery:

Item number:
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.

Thank you for the above and beyond answer! Good to know, and I'm sure others would appreciate the info.

Everything is excellent, just would like to see a RTX 2060 there.

I also want world peace.

I think the latter might be more achievable.

hmmmm..... 144hz is supposedly 100% sRGB gamut

https://www.ultrabookreview.com/39830-l ... -5-review/
There are currently three-panel options available for the Legion 5 series:

FHD IPS with 250-nits, 120 Hz refresh;
FHD IPS with 300-nits, 60 Hz refresh, 100% sRGB coverage, for +$50;
FHD IPS with 300-nits, 144 Hz refresh, 100% sRGB coverage, for +$100.

but no Thunderbolt port.

I will need a new travel laptop for whenever COVID restrictions are lifted.

what to do....

That's a AMD thing. All PC with AMD CPU don't have Thunderbolt3.

Because Intel owns and licences Thunderbolt products. That is also why they are so expensive!

I have the previous generation Y540 and absolutely love it. Paid around the same price during the "price error". Top notch build quality. Only thing to note is that 3000 series gpu's for laptops will be released in q1 or q2 2021.

Thanks very much OP.

Purchased one.

I was going to wait to see if anything better shows up on Prime Day or black Friday, but this one looks about as good as it may get.

Recognizing that everyone's mileage may vary I have always had good luck with Lenovo machines.

I understand AMD cpu laptop, but what about those laptops with Intel CPUs then? Least those "gaming laptops" ALL OF THEM should have Thunderbolt 3 as standard, not optional...

For those new to gaming laptop (like me), i was surprised to see

1. 230w power brick (over 1kg)
I tried to plug in a 60w USB-C and nothing happened
2. Loud fan noise (even browsers use GPU these days)
Great virtual auditory experience when playing FS2020 at high video settings
3. Short battery life (compared to non-gaming Laptops)


But i like how the exterior of this laptop looks like just a regular laptop (honey, I got this at a bargain because it’s heavy) without accentuated wasd keys

Also the screen is matte finish.

I do wish this had a touch screen but it really is one of better Lenovos I’ve seen in years

This is a good deal. I would have been all over this had I not already purchased the Y740 back in April.
