Help Decide between Legions (Lenovo Laptop)

Using the current Lenovo deals I have the current 2 options of Legions to go with and i am really unsure on what to pick.
Both these models will serve my purposes. If not for the long shipping time i would have picked the L5P.

I am trying to justify whether the 500$ is worth the extra hard disk space (and the PCIE4) and immediate availability.

I have to choose one. Please help?

Both of them 3070.

  • I guess I’d ask if you can justify 500$ for the extra hard disk space, PCIE4 and immediate availability.

    If not…. Get the L5P

  • The only thing better about the 7 is the bigger SSD, which is 100% not worth $500.

  • It uses a different cooling system as well but you'll need to research how much of an advantage it is.

  • Legio X Equestris that accompanied Caesar into Gaul and Hispania.


    I'll see myself out.

  • I voted Legion 7i because I own one. It is the greatest portable computing experience I have ever had. That is a great price you have been quoted. I've no idea how you got it so low.

  • I ordered a L5P on the 9th Sep with expected shipping 8+ weeks. Estimate arrival date has changed a couple times and each time it got shorter. Now, its expected to arrive by 4th October. If this is correct, thats only 3.5 weeks from date of order.

    But in saying that, I'd go for the 7i if my budget allows.

  • I would take the L5P. I prefer the AMD CPU over the Intel - it's cooler and consumes less power in most situations.

    It is slightly outperformed by the Intel when they both do max power draw - but we are talking a couple of percent - and that is offset by increased heat in the Intel.
