Thanks to the earlier posters of the EDUCOMM code and also Doweyy

Legion 5 17" AMD
Part Number: 82JY006MAU

Order now to ship by Mid October

AMD Ryzen™ 7 5800H (8C / 16T, 3.2 / 4.4GHz, 4MB L2 / 16MB L3)
17.3" FHD (1920x1080) IPS 300nits Anti-glare, 144Hz, 72% NTSC, Free-Sync, Dolby Vision, DC dimmer
2x 8 GB SO-DIMM DDR4-3200
1 TB SSD M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3060 6GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1425 / 1702MHz, TGP 130W

If the Thinkbook 16p or the Legion 7 don't float your boat, this is an alternative.
It should have better cooling than the Thinkbook 16p, but it's screen is nowhere near as bright or as good as the Thinkbook 16p's.

$2799 normal price at the non educational Lenovo store
$2499 at Lenovo on EBAY using the current discount codes

I think after all my searching I am narrowing things down.
For my needs I want a 17" screen, AMD 5800 CPU (or better) and Nvidia 3070 GPU (or better)
This misses on the GPU requirement but would be a solid buy at the price.

  • Can you recommend a desktop please?

      For gaming?

      Think AMD 5800 CPU
      Nvidia 3080 GPU

      As with notebooks, for now AMD have the CPU edge on Intel - AMD chips generally have more cores, run a lot cooler and give better peformance.

      • Thanks!

        Emphasis on the think when it comes to the Nvidia 3080. The only place you're going to get a reasonably priced RTX3080 is if you think it into existence :P

  • wow, 665 fps on Minecraft.

    • Turn rtx on and it'll probably drop down to like 10fps

  • How does the Legion 5 Pro 16"differ?
    Better screen, better cooling?
    L5P with 3060 would be similar pricing? So better to wait for a L5P deal?

    • I am pretty sure the cooling is similar in the 5 Pro and this.

      The screen on the Pro is a brighter, higher res screen but 1" smaller.

      The other thing to consider is the TGP on both the CPU and GPU in each machine.

      This is a 130W TGP on the 3060. It doesn't say what the TPG is on the CPU.
      The 3060 GPU is also 130W TGP in the Legion 5 Pro.
      Pretty sure on the Thinkbook 16p it's limited to about 75W (I can't actually see it listed in specs in checkout).

      The higher TGP will mean better performance and more heat.

      You will find that on machines where the TGP on the CPU is limited, the AMD chips outperform the Intel chips - but where TGP isn't restrained on the CPU, the Intel chips 11800H are faster than the AMD 5800H in most tasks - but the Intel's run hotter so you want good cooling…

      • So the Pro would be of similar price for this spec?
        Except you get a better (but smaller) screen.

    • The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H is much more efficient then the Intel 11800H and is designed for mobility with better battery life, efficiency and thermals. At 45w TDP the 5800H will outperform the 11800H. Only at 80W TDP does the 11800H start to perform, but not significantly against the 5800H, at the expense of battery life, efficiency and thermals.

  • Ordered another series from last post couple of weeks ago for mid Oct delivery.

    No update since to order, so no idea if its on track or not for this timeframe.

    Did read else where they ship bulk via sea, so they turn up at some point, hopefully…

  • lenovo is nightmare 2 years ago ordered allinone pc, delivery got delayed by months and months…
    no compensation or anything offered as well. that was before covid and all this things.
    so yeah just hope for 2022 delivery i say

  • GPU in title, please.

  • If I have an edu.au account, do I need to provide any student ID or something else If I buy from education store?

    • I haven't actually made a purchase yet but I don't think you need an ID - just a valid email or a code to access the web site
