LEGIONDAYS

Seems to be a new model in parallel to the similar spec'd intel version. Not as good as the Legion 5 Unidays sale last month but not a bad price considering what you get. I just cant find what the colour accuracy of the screen is, im guessing 45% NTSC.

    Interesting. Would like to know how this compares to the Y series.

    Good price. Have to wonder about the cooling performance.

    Cheaper by $40 on ebay if you have plus.

          It’s an eBay plus deal only. I can see using PARTY21 code takes $300 off

      I ordered through ebay however mine is yet to be posted. Anyone else in the same situation?

    Pity about the screen :(

    • +5 votes

      15.6" FHD (1920x1080) WVA 250nits Anti-glare, 120Hz hrmmmm, would likely be usable fine inside but prob not real good if you need to use it as a workstation on the train or something.

      And now that I've seen one in real life… It is really dull in daylight.

      Even the light coming in from the window was making it hard to focus on.

      Really is a deal-breaker for me because I do tend to use my laptops all over the house but my dual monitor setup is in a bright room.

      •  

        Bugger. I was considering pulling the trigger on this one. I need a decent laptop for graphic design/ photo editing.

    Sorry noob here
    Will this handle Microsoft Flight Simulator fine?

    •  

      It will handle it ok on medium settings. But don't quote me on that :D

    • +1 vote

      I have a 1650 Super on my desktop and Flight Simulator plays on high detail at 1080p at around 30-40fps, which is fine for it. Not sure if the mobile versions of the cards are much different though?

    • +4 votes

      Here is a video of a similarly spec'd laptop playing it. Although I believe the AMD CPU is better than the 10th Gen Intel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWVo3xGsoTI

      • +3 votes

        4600H is faster and more power efficient then the majority of H series 10th Gen Intel. The only issue is if the mobile 1650ti will be able to handle a game with limited optimisation such as the latest MS Flight Simulator.

    • +4 votes

      Microsoft Flight Simulator is the new Crysis

  •  

    120Hz display, interesting

  •  

    Which is better out of this deal or this one https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/541372 ?
    Is it worth the extra $350 to get 1TB HDD and a 4GB graphics card?

    • +9 votes

      The graphics card is the selling point here, tbh it's really the minimum for decent gaming here.

      If you don't need that the other is much smaller, lighter, cheaper, probably better battery. The hard drive is a dinosaur spinning disk so not really important.

      4600H is a 20-30% better cpu compared to 4500U. If you need better multi-core processing, you are better off with 4600H.
      But for general browsing and office related activities plus light gaming 4500U is more than enough.
      cpu benchmarks compared on this link https://www.notebookcheck.net/R5-4500U-vs-R5-4600H_11687_116...

      Ideapad has better upgradability (video is for intel version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEqNrvVwaUs).
      In Flex 5 14" the 16GB RAM is soldered and you only can upgrade the ssd (16GB RAM is more than enough for day to day office related tasks).

      In short they serve two seperate market segments.

    does anyone know if CashRewards works with these coupon codes? CR has it in their T&C's that cashback would not be honoured for coupon codes not displayed on CR and since the coupon code is coming directly from Lenovo itself.

    • +2 votes

      TA has mentioned that cashback is valid with Lenovo's own coupons on their site as they are not affiliate coupons.

      •  

        Even if the code is not listed on cashrewards?

  •  

    Which would be better? Close to locking in on this refurbed Dell - i5-9300H but 1660TI: https://www.dell.com/en-au/outlet/refurbished-g3-15-3590-lap...

    Edit: Usage would be office productivity + gaming but I'm not too fussed on playing on medium 1080/720p settings.

    45 Wh battery combined with the Ryzen 5 4600H and 120Hz screen means battery will be eaten up in 1-2 hours so you can't really take it anywhere. Otherwise it's a great deal

    This is better and can upgrade screen to 300nits but need edu account. $1,169.00

    •  

      Can’t se it. Can you post specs ? (I got edu account but not on me right now)

      • +3 votes

        At that base price it has 8gb ram, no mechanical hard drive and the base 1650. Once you upgrade those three things to match this and then the 300 nit screen it comes to $1,563 and says it ships in "more than 8 weeks".
        Extra ram: $95
        1TB HDD: $99
        1650 Ti: $150
        300 nit: $50

    If they put a better monitor in these they'd have a great XPS competitor.

    Was trying to get a colleague a 4600H based laptop with discreet CPU before EOFY and there was nothing around.

    •  

      Yeah. If only the screen was 400 or 500 nit. I could live with 1080p. Insta buy if it was 500 nit wqhd hdr.

        Keep dreaming

        •  

          willing to pay extra for it if they offer it.

  •  

    Everyone I see a deal like this, I kick myself for buying an XPS 15 9500.

  •  

    Thanks! Been helping a non-technical friend hunt for a gaming laptop deal for a few weeks. This is perfect price, specs, what he wants.

    •  

      Did you see if there are other cheaper laptops closer to the $1k with similar GPU?

      •  

        Yeah I did, we have been searching for a few weeks now and the problem is a lot of them have heat issues or not as good specs.

        •  

          I asked because I've been waiting all year for a budget ~$1k gaming laptop but then covid happened and prices went up.
          This deal looks really popular but it's +$200 over…

          • +2 votes

            @Blitzfx: Ah yeah, possibly keep waiting. From the limited reading, I am hearing that more AMD Ryzen 5/7 models are making it to the Australian market over the coming months so prices should hopefully go lower?

            At the $1000 mark, you could get a quad core i5, 1650 (non-Ti), 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM, but honestly the AMD R5, 16GB RAM, extra 1TB hard drive and Ti version of gfx card make the extra $200 worth it.
