  • Is this good?

    • +2

      Yes had this laptop for 2 months. Been amazing

      • Does the 3060 handle the resolution well? Given it's a cut down mobile GPU I wonder if it can handle more than 1080p.

        • +4

          This is one of the best 3060 laptop GPUs you can get due to high TDP of 130W. It will run games at 1080 and 1440 extremely well.

    • Depends what you are after, personally I would spec up the Slim 5 Pro 16" . It's a very similar machine and you can score it with 5800H, 16GB DDR4, RTX 3050 4GB and 120Hz QHD 350nit display for $1587.53 with this deal. I'm pretty sure they both have the exact same trackpad & keyboard SKUs

      • +1

        Slim 5 Pro 16" has soldered RAM, which can't be upgraded

  • Got this recently for my son's school and gaming. Only issue is lasting for school-like hours on battery, even after optimized settings.
    A Baseus 65W power bank didn't cut it, even though 20V/3.25A USB-C meets the spec for charging while on (it did trickle charge while off). Instead you're gonna need a 100W GaN power bank. They aren't easy to find. I recommend the HyperCharger MAX from amazon.com.

  • wasn't the delivery time for this one is like 7 weeks?

    • Yup, correct. I can definitely recommend the laptop, but it's only really worth ordering from Lenovo when they show it as in stock, because otherwise any time frame given is an extremely rough estimate and it could well take months to come back in stock.

      • +1

        yeah its a gamble. I think it just depends on how urgent and if the price is worth the wait.

        but the chip shortage sucks, its affecting every company.

        • +1

          It's a pretty awful situation right now, I know.

          Personally I don't think the price here is amazing enough to rush in and essentially pre-order.

          The 5800H/3060 Legion 5 Pro was only ~$100 more when it was in stock earlier this month. I bought one and I'm happy with it, but if anyone wants a Black Friday deal that will actually arrive before Christmas, it's probably best to look elsewhere.

          • +1

            @star chasm: yeah, alot of the laptops (popular ones and good ones) are sold out in Australia.

            Until the chips shortage ease, the situations is not looking good. price and delivery time wise.

          • @star chasm: Do you think this code is the best we'll get from Lenovo over Black Friday. Seems strange the code isn't simply FRIDAY21 (fwiw I tried that code in a few variations, doesn't exist) :)

            The model I want is the X1 Yoga and customed out it's 7 weeks too. I don't mind waiting 7 weeks as long as that doesn't blow out to months, that's always the gamble.

          • @star chasm: I'm keen on this deal but worried that if I get it, it won't arrive before I leave for an overseas trip on Dec 28. Very unsure what I should do right now.

            • @Aidan0098: I wish I could tell you for certain! You could try talking to Lenovo via chat. I found them quite helpful when I purchased my laptop.

              • +1

                @star chasm: Yeah I ended up speaking to them and they told me it won't come before then… it sucks. I'm not really sure what to do.

  • Weird - and annoying - that this is only on the edu store. I wonder if a similar deal is coming for the normal store? (obviously it would probably be a little more with no edu discount, but maybe something around $2000-2100 for the regular store)

    • Agreed, I've been wanting to pick up this model for awhile. I'm sure in a previous deal someone had a way to access the education deals without a .edu account

  • The AMD Ryzen™ 7 5800H version is $1996.72, only $79.2 more than Ryzen 5 as original deal. is it worth paying $79.2 more?

    https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/education/laptops/legion-laptop...

    • +1

      Extra 2 cores and a 300W charger instead of 230W. I'm willing to pay it $79.20 for that.

      The question is, is it worth paying ANOTHER $528 on top of that (so $2,524.72), to get:
      - an extra 16GB RAM
      - upgrade to RTX 3070 8GB
      - extra 512GB of SSD storage.

      I'm just guesstimating each of those is worth $100, but I haven't followed hardware prices for years.
      Am I under-estimating the value delta of a 3060 to a 3070?

      Penny for your thoughts, anyone?

      • +1

        I ended up customising the 5800H link above to add the 3070, the total cost was $2,304.73.

        I figure the RAM will likely need changing anyway (as per Jarrod'sTech videos), and I can add more storage myself later on down the track, so why pay Lenovo a premium to do it for me?

        • Can you tell me a bit more about this please hamishrr?
          I haven't followed hardware tech in years. I'm interested to hear your thought process.

          I see in the customise section that it's $350 more (or $308 actually) to upgrade to a 3070. Is a 3070 really worth that much more?
          I want 32GB of RAM, since I've found my current laptop using up to near 16GB while running my plethora of Chrome tabs and Deswik (CAD software).

      • I decided to get the $2524.72 version because it will ship in early December, rather than more than 2 months away. This will give more plenty of RAM but also HDD storage. I can claim it via tax so decided to bite the bullet this time.

    • Colleague of mine ordered one in this spec. Upgraded the warranty to 1 year on site for an extra $10. Stacked with Lenovo 14% cashback comes to around $1800 after cashback. Not bad for the price…

      • Was it Cashrewards or Shopback? Is he sure it worked/tracked? Shopback page says that if the code isn't specifically mentioned (and CYBER21 is not), then we won't get the cash.

        • He just got the tracking confirmation with Shopback. $280. $1720 after cashback for the 5800h model with 3060 is pretty damn good

          • @zonarhd: Thank you zonarhd. Do you mind asking him if this is how he navigated to the page? I'm just concerned I might lose tracking.

            Shopback Lenovo section, 'Explore the gaming range with Lenovo Legion now' > "Shop Now" > "Go to Lenovo now!" > "Lenovo Education Store" > "Enter Student Store" > [enter Lenovo ID and password that I just created using my uni email] > "Sign In" > [hold mouse-over "Gaming" menu button, click "LEGION 5 PRO 16" on the pop-up menu] > [scroll across to the $1996.72 option, click "Customise", and continue the checkout process]

            • @wodtha: Student store purchases are not eligible for cashback as per SB terms

              • @skdreams: I just used Cashrewards to buy laptop via Education store today. It is now marked as Tracked and is pending. Fingers Crossed.

            • +1

              @wodtha: Pretty much that process. Used the Shopback tool added into Google Chrome and activated it at the login page for the Education Store (tool icon goes green when successfully activated).

  • OP I believe you need to fix up the original post. The $1917.52 option is a Ryzen 5 5600H, not a Ryzen 7.

  • -1

    Cheaper today! @ lenovo $1839
    https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/legion-laptops/legion-5...

    I'm tempted..

    • 13% cash rewards as well?

    • That's with the 3050ti GPU, not the 3060..

      • -1

        ahh that's a big difference!

    • I am wondering how much the price difference is between advertised price and educational price, possibly $100 cheaper?
