Over the past few years I’ve had some friends who have bought Lenovo Legion gaming laptops because they have good specs and a nice design at a reasonable price. That’s why I picked this option to share a deal that will result in last year’s entry-level model dropping to a price below most office laptops. Code-named 15ARH05, this 15-inch configuration packs a Ryzen 5 4600H processor and GTX 1650 graphics card for £ 573 when you use code WINDOWS50 at the checkout – great value for a fairly solid slot machine.

This configuration isn’t the most powerful available, but I think it’s pretty good value for money. The downside here is the RAM and storage allocation, which is pretty meager with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but both are expandable across the board, so it’s not a deal-breaker in my eyes. Having a decent discrete graphics card, even a low-end graphics card like the GTX 1650, gives you a lot more options to tackle the latest games than you would with the onboard graphics built into the latest, most powerful processors.

The Ryzen 5 4600H is also a good, efficient performer and should do a good day-to-day performance, especially when the RAM allocation is upgraded to 16GB or higher. Ryzen 4000 was a key moment for AMD on mobile – the first time an AMD laptop CPU had competed with Intel in years! – and getting one like this is a really nice bonus.

There are some other good points here. The 120Hz screen isn’t the best, with relatively low brightness and no HDR, but a higher refresh rate is great for the esports titles that run well on this laptop. The port selection is good too, with four full-size USB ports, USB-C, a headphone jack, Ethernet, and HDMI.

All in all it’s an insane amount of laptop at £ 573 so check it out – I don’t think you will find much better for the money! By the way, if you find a better deal, let me know in the comments – we’re always looking for a great gaming laptop to recommend. See you next time, Cheerio!
