[Costco] Lenovo Legion 5i with RTX 3060 $1299.99

Saw this one today at Overlea store seems like decent deal compared to the same time last year at $1699 after discount.

IIRC it is 12th gen Intel.

All these desktops are priced at where they should have been last year.
Not where they should be this year when you can finally get the parts and put something better together.

With a 3080 it would be a good price

The prebuilt prices in canada seem to be unaffected by the gpu price drops. This is not a good value.

In the ideal world that would be great price. However prices are going up for 3080 even with availability of 4000 series.

Looking over at US eBay RTX 3080 has gone up in price for month of November. When MSRP is high don't bet on a good deal. Prebuilt RTX 3080 at $1299.99 isn't likely to happen anytime soon.

Some good looking prebuilts out there, with decent gfx, the downside that always gets me is the mobo they use, they use OEM basic mobos.
😎Thanks RFD😎

I bought 3060 ti one from orion.
As it was mentioned before the problem is their mobo ram ssd and very limited psu.
Except the cpu and gpu all the other parts will become a problem when you try to upgrade.
I returned it after couple weeks of use and bult a new desktop,

If you take individual components and cost it out at Canada Computers, the discounted price is actually decent.

Parts are also hard to find, been debating to build my own or buy a pre-built and decided on buying pre-built given the pricing is not too different.

Thanks for sharing not sure why you're getting downvoted.

Can probably swap out the mobo after the warranty is over. The specs for this build is decent for the price.

Obviously but you're not getting a new 3080 build at this price

Looks like 12400, 16gb ram, 512 gb ssd:

https://www.costco.ca/lenovo-legion-tow ... 60906.html

I think it might've been a good deal earlier this year when graphics card prices were all over the place, but things are starting to come down.

This pre-build from newegg was $1100 last week (pretty similar specs but an extra 1TB HD):

https://www.newegg.ca/asus-g10dk-dbr566 ... 6883221713

You could probably build something similar for about ~$1000 w/ a 12400/5600 + 6650 XT or quite a bit better with a 5800X3D/13600k + 6750 XT for ~$200 more (or maybe cheaper if you wait for parts to go on sale).

I have older version of this machine. Board is very good I used to do the whole overclock and all but now I prefer stability.

Max out the ram, fill all pcie ports and she’s a rock solid system. For the price not bad. CPU could be i7 for the price and does come up on Lenovo with Rakuten in this range

  1. The GPU alone is $520.
  2. CPU is $300
  3. DDR5 1x 16GB is $100
  4. SSD 1x 500GB is $50
  5. PSU ~$70
  6. CASE ~$100
  7. Windows 11 $140 (there are cheaper ways to get it)
  8. buying piece by piece, waiting, unboxing, throwing the garbage, putting everything together, installing softwares, etc... 2-3h?! How much are you paid per hour at work? avg CAD salary is about $22/h so let's say $60
Total of ~$1340

Overpriced. For this price, I expect i7-12700 and 32GB DDR5 in a desktop to consider it a deal.

A true PC enthusiast is less concerned about cost of materials than building a good custom machine.

Part of the joy is actually assembling everything together, that's not something you pay someone else to do

I got my "$100" case for free off marketplace
