      Or just use a USB-C to HDMI cable…

  • Great price

  • How good would battery life be for office/web usage?

    Also if I connect it to a monitor via a USB-C hub, would I be able to get 1440p 120Hz cause of the DP 1.2?

  • Would be worth mentioning the refresh on the panel if it's listed, though I assume it's 165Hz.

  • its got a big battery.

    Great bit of kit.

  • even if this AMD doesnt / cannot have thunderbolt 4.0, still good buy ? not so future proof then ?

    • +1

      not so future proof then ?

      What do you intend to use Thunderbolt for?

      You either need Thunderbolt (e.g. for eGPU) or you don't, has nothing to do with "future proofing". Your computer is not going to perform better or worse in 3 years time because it has or does not have Thunderbolt.

      • hmm so not like tb 4 has fastest transfer speed or has some kind of extra features ? compare with usb 3.2 gen 2 or the rest (like display out things like that) - so many types of usb sometimes i got confused and assumed the latest is the best

        • Do you own a Thunderbolt 4 SSD that will be able to take advantage of those speeds? If not, then you don't need Thunderbolt.

      • +1

        I have yet to see someone give a valid reason for Thunderbolt beyond eGPU. Your GPU options will still lbe limited by Thunderbolt's bandwidth. If you really need Thunderbolt, the next gen AMD 6000 series laptops have USB4, which supports Thunderbolt 3. There is no significant difference between Thunderbolt 3 and 4 in terms of total bandwidth available. Only that Intel controls certification of Thunderbolt 4 for manufacturers that want to state it in their marketing.

  • Anyone care to weigh in on how this would perform for a first year mechanical engineering student? Software such as solidworks, autocad, ansys workbench for fluids dynamics and stress analysis etc.

    • +1

      It would run all of that pretty easily. Legion series laptops are better for gaming with higher refresh screens and higher power GPUs. This is a little cheaper though and ticks all other boxes with decent battery life and build quality. Only issue I see is the 16inch size which is a bit large to carry around.

      If you want something smaller with better battery life and decent integrated graphics, have a look at intel 11th gen laptops with Xe graphics. If you're happy to wait a little bit, there will be some good laptops coming out this year with Ryzen 6000 series and intel 12th gen which will likely be a lot more efficient (and more expensive).

      • Thank you for that great reply, jonahmvp! Much appreciated. I am dubious of the 16inch size, might be pushing it a bit with regards to portability, seems like it might be a bit bulky. However, cost is a big consideration and getting a good balance between performance and affordability is probably my biggest concern. Battery life, not so much an issue, there are power points everywhere on campus and as for weight etc, not worried too much there either. So my main considerations are:

        Under $2K
        Able to handle engineering software, though not all that often, will mostly be used as a general student laptop
        Size/portability
        Reasonable lifespan (is 5 years expecting too much?)

        • I'd go with the Ideapad Slim 5 Pro 16 for $1,623.61 with the RTX 3050 and 120Hz screen upgrades, or wait for ryzen 6000-series laptops to come out.

          • @jonahmvp: Nah. Thats exactly as bulky as this one. Weights the same and has the same footprint (maybe 1mm slimmer).

        • Go with a ThinkPad T series

        They're in a bit of a different class of product IMO. Yes, with a Legion series, you could step up to a 3070 (but that'll be around $800 - $1000 more), and you'll likely have better cooling to let the 5800H boost higher, but that will be at the expense of weight and thickness.

        There will always be a compromise between performance / weight / cost, but I think Lenovo have done a good job with the compromise here for a more professional oriented laptop.

        FWIW, it might be a minor point for some, but you can take this into a business meeting, a Legion still looks a bit ridiculous. I actually wonder whether that sort of "gamer" design is actually popular in the real world.

  • Seems that both the 5900HX and the 5800H have sold out as only the 5600H is available to buy..
