  1. Zak

    After 12 months of owning this, i can say it was a very nice and solid choice of a laptop for the price i got it for (1000$).

    + The Pros:
    – Slick design that doesn’t scream gamer.
    – The laptop build is solid.
    – Keyboard is pleasant to type on.
    – Nice and vibrant screen.
    – Plays anything i throw at it with ease (@1080p 60fps on god of war. 120+ fps apex legends. 90+ fps monster hunter rise. 200+ fps divinity original sin).
    – Runs cool, CPU and GPU doesn’t exceed 75c in most demanding games/applications (if you apply the tips below).
    – Decent 4.5 hours battery life.

    – The Cons:
    – The 3050ti is actually great but the 4gb of vram might prevent you from choosing very high textures in games or could be an issue if you try to render super heavy scenes in 3d softwares that require alot of vram. (For me it was enough to run Lumion 3D without issues and it never exceeded 4GB)
    – My unit has high pitched fans so it’s loud under load.

    Tips to reduce your CPU and GPU temperatures on the laptop:
    1- Have the back of your laptop raised by few centimeters to allow more air into the vents. (3 to 5c lower temps)
    2- Play on balanced mode instead of Performance, you will get lower temps (by up to 10c) and not much performance is lost (5% to 10% at worst, at least that’s what i saw with my games.)
    3- Disable boost, this had minor impact on my fps but i had cooler temps on my ryzen 5800h temps (14c lower temps).

    To disable boost follow steps below:
    – Run cmd as administrator and type in:
    powercfg -attributes sub_processor perfboostmode -attrib_hide

    This will reveal a setting “Processor performance boost mode” in the advanced options in your power plan settings that lets you enable or disable boost.

    – If you want to Undo the previous operation
    powercfg -attributes sub_processor perfboostmode +attrib_hide

    – Configure it in your preferred power plan:
    Control Panel/Power Options/Change Plan Settings/Change advanced power settings/Processor power management/Processor performance boost mode

    While Disabled (Default: Aggressive) your thermals will improve drastically with minimal or zero performance lost depending on the game.
    If you don’t want to completely disable it use Efficient Aggressive.

    Note that disabling boost reduces performance when doing demanding non-gaming workloads like rendering (mostly CPU workloads), so disable it if you want max performance at the cost of more heat.

    [Review updated with pictures showing temperature improvements for both CPU (Ryzen 7 5800H) and GPU (3050TI) using the tips above running Monster Hunter Rise]

    Lenovo Computer Review

    I’m no IT guru, so this is a total non-techy user review. I’ve owned and used this laptop computer September of 2021, and I love it! It was well past time for an upgrade, and I spent a lot of time looking at laptops, trying to decide what fit my needs and wants best. I narrowed it down to a few from Asus, Dell, Acer, and Lenovo. Even though this is marketed as a gaming laptop, it’s important to note that I am not a computer guru, nor am I a gamer. I don’t own a single game, so I can’t review it from that standpoint. I simply wanted a computer for everyday computing and web surfing, managing my music collection, editing photos, and running my telescopes (astronomy is one of my hobbies.)

    For my purposes, this computer is fast! It boots up in just a few seconds. The graphics are great! Being able to change the keyboard backlighting color is a great feature for me. Astronomy is a hobby of mine, so my keyboard lighting is red, since I don’t want bright light sources ruining my dark-adapted night vision when I’m using the laptop with my telescopes at night.

    No computer is perfect, and I do have a few minor nit-picks with this one, though there are none that I find unacceptable. First, this computer came with ABSOLUTELY NO DOCUMENTATION! No manual, printed or otherwise. Not even a quick-start guide. No CD with a manual or utilities. All you get in the box is the laptop and the power cord/AC adapter. In spite of the lack of documentation, it was pretty easy for me to power it up and start using it. Next, the AC adapter is very bulky, compared to the ones that come with most other laptops. It’s about 6”x 3”x 1”, it’s heavy for its size, and it’s situated in the middle of the power cord. I will say that the power cord is quite long, which is good. The power cord plugs into the back of the unit, rather than on the side. There’s only one USB port on right side of the computer, and there’s a USB-C port and a headphone jack on the left side. I would have preferred two side USB ports, but there are three more on the back of the unit, along with a HDMI port, another USB-C port, and a LAN connection. There’s plenty of connectability, if you don’t mind most of it being on the back of the unit. The speakers sound like typical laptop speakers, and I think it’s silly to expect much more than that. I use headphones, Bluetooth speakers, or I just Bluetooth my music from the laptop to my home stereo system. Last, the battery doesn’t last long as long as I’d like, but that’s to be expected from a computer with the high-end processing and graphics capability this computer has. For every day, non-gaming use, I get about two-and-a-half to three hours of use from the battery before I need to recharge it. If you need portability power, you’d do well to use all of the power saving settings, have an alternate power supply to plug into, or an extra battery, or consider another computer altogether. Again, none of these are things that cause me any real issues, but they might for others. In spite of them all, I do love this machine!

    One of the things about this computer that was a big selling point for me is that it was sold directly by Amazon, rather than a third-party vendor on Amazon. I hear a lot of hard luck stories from folks who bought computers from third-party vendors who had a tough time either getting warranty service for computers with problems, or returning them for refunds. And a lot of computers offered by third-party vendors have been modified by those vendors. I read a lot of reviews from customers of a lot of those units, complaining of inferior parts being used for the mods. Luckily for me, I had no desire to return my computer, nor have I had any functionality issues with it. But when I have had to return anything to Amazon, it’s always been a no-hassle experience for me. And to top it off, the Amazon price on this computer was less than that offered directly from Lenovo.

    What I like:
    Looks great!
    It’s fast! Boots up in only a few seconds.
    Graphics are top notch.
    WIFI and Bluetooth work well
    Keyboard backlighting colors are changeable (red is my preference)
    10-key pad on keyboard (I use this a lot!)
    Sold directly by Amazon (at least it was when I bought mine)

    What I don’t like:
    NO documentation
    The battery could last longer
    Most of the connectivity ports are on the back of the computer
    Bulky AC adapter
    Annoying occasional sales nags from McAfee and Microsoft. Fairly easily removed.

    Excelente computadora de “mid-range gaming”. Hice una prueba rápida con The Division 2: WoNY en “Ultra Settings” y no tuve problema alguno (en FHD).

    Me llegó en 5 días.

  4. Fwrnamdp

    Cumple todo lo que promete. La bateria no dura tanto como dicen pero es porque es una bestia y quizas porque tenga algun problema en el software. Corre cyberpunk sin problemas, aunque eso si esos ventiladores que tiene son muy ruidosos, pero cumplen su funcion de mantener el cpu a buena temperatura. Es pesada y el cargador es un ladrillo de un kilo. La pantalla es de excelente calidad y muestra los colores con gran fidelidad. Tengo un mes de uso apenas con ella y hasta el momento muy satisfecho con la compra.

  5. Renzo Uzcategui

    No tuve ningun problema de importacion, me llego en aproximadamente 4 dias contando los dias del fin de semana, me llego rapido. es una excelente laptop, no tengo ninguna queja, me encanta.

    Una sugerencia a paqueteria seria que entre la caja de Lenovo y la Caja de paqueteria colocaran mas proteccion porque la caja de Lenovo bailaba un poco dentro de la caja de Amazon, igualmente el empaquetado de Lenovo es muuuuuy bueno y esta super protegida.

  6. Damaurion

    It has really good specs and comes with lenevo vantage which shows all details of the laptop and let’s you change things like lighting. It’s battery life isn’t very good though. It last about 5 hours under small loads like doing school work or regular web surfing and then it dies much quicker with the fan on max speed and playing a game or something. I think this laptops only downside is the battery. The screen looks great and can be very bright. It runs very well and the fan can be turned to silent mode which I can only hear when there’s complete silence and I put my ear close to it. Mine came with a 1 year warranty which is always great.

  7. Mario Di Fonzo

    Got it on sale and it was great, maybe not so much for the current price.

  8. Carlos

    Lo que más me gustó es que es ligera en peso y las capacidades son suficientes para juegos nuevos. Es muy rápida y prácticamente no se calienta demasiado a menos que se use al límite o en lugares con altas temperaturas. Posiblemente quede a deber en algunas áreas como la duración de la batería o la RAM y a algunas personas les puede parecer que tiene poco espacio en disco duro. Para los gamers dedicados puede quedarse corta en rendimiento máximo pero en general cumple.

    Las mejoras disponibles son: mejor batería, espacio para otro SSD de 3.5 o un M.2, RAM hasta 32 GB (A pesar de los límites del fabricante de 16 GB, hay videos en línea que han probado con mayor capacidad).

    Para diseñadores o editores de video puede que requieran expandir el espacio de SSD.

    EL PROCESO DE ENVIO FUE RAPIDO, PAGUÉ ENVIO PRIORITARIO Y SE MANEJÓ POR UPS, ME LLEGÓ EN SEIS DIAS (CONTANDO SABADO Y DOMINGO), EN ADUANA NO TARDÓ NI 12 HRS, LA LIBERACION FUÉ RAPIDA; REALICÉ EL PEDIDO EL DIA 15 DE JULIO 2021 Y ME LLEGÓ EL 21 DE JULIO HASTA EL SUR DEL PAIS. LA LAPTOP VIENE SUPER BIEN EMPACADA Y PROTEGIDA DE FABRICA.

    DESPUES DE UN DIA DE USO TUVE UN PROBLEMA CON EL SOFTWARE (WINDOWS), ESPECIFICAMENTE CON EL CONTROLADOR DE LA TARJETA DE VIDEO INTEGRADA (LA LAPTOP TIENE DOS TARJETAS DE VIDEO O GPU, UNA INTEGRADA Y LA NVIDIA QUE ES LA DEDICADA) POR LO QUE TUVE QUE FORMATEARLA DESDE CERO Y ASUNTO ARREGLADO (COSA QUE NO ME GUSTÓ PARA NADA, SI ALGUIEN MAS TUVO ESTE PROBLEMA DEJE SU ME GUSTA).

    EL DESEMPEÑO DE LA LAPTOP ES BUENO, ENCIENDE EN MENOS DE 15 SEGUNDOS Y NO TIENES QUE ESPERAR A QUE LA COMPUTADORA TENGA QUE CARGAR APLICACIONES, ETC. LAS APLICACIONES ABREN Y CARGAN SUPER RAPIDO, LA BATERIA DURA APROXIMADAMENTE TRES HORAS CON EL BRILLO AL MAXIMO, DANDOLE UN USO MODERADO. PARA PODER UTILIZAR LA TARJETA GRAFICA NVIDIA NECESITAS TENER EL CARGADOR CONECTADO Y REALIZAR UNA PREVIA CONFIGURACION EN EL SOFTWARE DE NVIDIA; HASTA EL MOMENTO SOLO HE JUGADO EN ELLA EL GTA IV (GRAND THEFT AUTO 4) CON LA CONFIGURACION GRAFICA AL MAXIMO EN TODO Y LO CORRE DE MANERA FLUIDA A APROXIMADAMENTE 70 FPS; LA LAPTOP SE CALIENTA DE MANERA MODERADA, HE MONITOREADO LA TEMPERATURA EN TIEMPO REAL DE LA TARJETA DE VIDEO Y EL PROCESADOR AL MOMENTO DE JUGAR Y ESTAS RONDAN APROXIMADAMENTE LOS 72° C, (YO COMPRÉ UN EXTRACTOR DE AIRE PARA LAPTOP Y SIENTO QUE SI AYUDA EN ALGO), LA VENTILACION DE LA LAPTOP SE ME HACE BUENA, TIENE CUATRO SALIDAS DE AIRE, DOS LATERALES, DOS EN LA PARTE TRASERA Y UNA POR DEBAJO DE LA LAPTOP, PESA APROXIMADAMENTE 2 KG, EL CARGADOR ES ALGO GRANDE COMPARADO CON EL DE OTRAS LAPTOPS.

    EN RESUMEN LA LAPTOP HASTA EL MOMENTO TIENE UN BUEN DESEMPEÑO, FALTA PROBARLA MUCHO MAS E IRÉ ACTUALIZANDO ESTE POST CONFORME AL USO QUE LE VAYA DANDO Y LOS RESULTADOS QUE OBTENGA.
