One of the most common misconceptions people have about gaming on a PC or laptop is that you need to spend big bucks to get anything that’s actually worth gaming on. Maybe that was true some years back, but the sheer number of really nice, affordable gaming laptops in the market these days is great for gamers on a budget. The Lenovo Legion 5 (Rs. 73,490) is one such machine. Designed to handle most games you’ll throw at it, while also fitting in at a workplace, the Legion 5 aims to address people who are into gaming, but also want their laptops to pull double duty for work.
It’s a well-rounded feature-set that sees a mid-range CPU paired with a lower mid-range GPU. There’s enough RAM for gaming, the display is fast, and there’s plenty of storage for everyone. The specs are good, performance is good, and the price is right. It could certainly do with better speakers, but under a lakh, you’ll be hard pressed to find a gaming laptop that offers more value.
