Are you trying to confuse people? What is USB 4 "3x2" mean? I understand 3.2, 3.1 but now you say 3x2 and 2x1!!!

You need an enclosure, a thunderbolt 3 cable and port on your laptop (hence we are already excluding ryzen Legions) it's huge and you would be bottlenecking it. There is not laptop RTX3090, so just stop

It looks thin enough on render. Looks cool! Hope they will release a white version as well for aesthetics lover :)

I'm yet to meet someone who actually uses a gaming laptop without charger, randomly, in public locations for gaming, like a gaming phone. If most remain glued to chargers anyways, then why not try to plonk in a 3090 in it, even if it goes heavy and huge?

I myself have a 1060 laptop. How many times I took it out? Zero.

And I don't like this Max Q concept, even though a RTX 3080 base means it will still be blazing fast with most of merits as well!

It's the custom made models so you could lower the price a bit by choosing less storage or no OS etc...
But it definitely did happen for black friday and won't happen again anytime soon.
Being custom made means the ETA is around 6 weeks but I got mine in 3 weeks only, which is a small price to pay for such a big discount.

By the way RTX3090 is mean to be a gamuing laptop and thus it have to be build with big fan and this for all cooling mechanisms.

You are grasping at straws

SigmaR, 23 Dec 2021Nope, the price difference is not small. The 3080 version i... moreMan custom made laptops exists if you know what you doing you can have an RTX3090 graphic card in your laptop. Or via external use.

Anonymous, 22 Dec 2021The 17" model seems to get negative reviews for being ... moreIt's not bigger. The chassis is the same size, only the screen ratio is taller

Smallworld, 22 Dec 2021This was available in my country during Black Friday. That&... moreso you are telling that the Legion 7 with 3080 went down to almost half its price?
I find that hard to believe, but if it happens again please let me know. I am buying one

Solun1, 22 Dec 2021The build quality. I really don't know how to explain ... moreYes I do speak english. The problem is "build quality is bad" alone does not clarify anything.
And I think you never used a Legion if you said that the plastics are at Kinder games' level, it's just not true

CptPower, 22 Dec 2021Still the price is awesome and the differece between 3070 a... moreNope, the price difference is not small. The 3080 version is sold around 2700 USD. And the 3090 laptop version does not exist

Smallworld, 22 Dec 2021The 17" Legion 5 uses the same chassis as the 15"... moreIf you were right, we should redefine what entry-level means. However, I loved the Asus TUF's build quality and keyboard, plus it was the same price, I just hated the performance. TUF is all plastic, but still impressed me a lot with its build quality, which is why I won't choose Lenovo again next time - and it won't matter if their entry-level laptops are $5000 or $500, because I know I can get a premium build (even if plastic one) from Asus.

Every brand has models like that (Acer has a 3080 in a very cheap full plastic chassis).
Personally I prefer a 16:10 16" display to a 16:9 17" display.

No matter what, I expect more for in this price range than what I got. That being said, I am fine with this laptop, it does everything I need and some, but Lenovo needs to step up their game a lot unless this build quality is normal with other manufacturers. But I will be thinking hard about Asus next time if they improve cooling and their laptops aren't so loud.

The Legion 7 with 3080 was also discounted

Solun1, 22 Dec 2021The build quality. I really don't know how to explain ... moreYou cannot buy a company's entry level laptop and complain the build quality is bad. MSI has very bad build quality on some of their full plastic entry level laptop, Asus too. Ultimately it depends on the price you're willing to pay.
I have ti Legion 5 Pro as well and the build quality is superb, probably better than your TUF. Its nearly full aluminum, only the palm rest is plastic, but it actually looks like metal. The assembly is perfect and there's no cracks and weird noises.
It's way ahead of the regular Legion 5. Then if you want even better build quality, the Legion 7 is full metal. But the worst is probably Acer. Asus TUFs aren't great either. HP Omens are decent.

SigmaR, 22 Dec 2021I got the Legion 5 Pro and the build quality is pretty good... moreThe build quality. I really don't know how to explain better. Do you speak english? Plastic toys from the Kinder Surprise egg have a better quality plastic than what Lenovo uses. Or maybe Asus Tuf series really is so superior in materials quality that people don't even know how good it can be. And Legion 5 Pro is cool but not available in a 17 inch widescreen version and offers worse specs in my region (but price is still great).
