Windows 10 Home
Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Lenovo Legion 5 15.6" Reviews

Nice machine

By John
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-25

Bought this for our college kid and he is enjoying the performance of a new laptop. It is a solid machine with nice spec, allowing him to do anything he needs to do for school (and hobbies). Very happy with this purchase and BH as well.

Horrible

By Robert
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-12

Two years in this thing is falling apart and it tells me on the support site it isn't even sold or supported in the US. Really disappointed in both B&H and Lenova. B&H shouldn't even be selling Lenovo products if that is how it going to work. Machine stopped charging so I can't even turn it on. The charging cable and connection has always been a problem. The keyboard is cheap and has a horrible layout so that if you know how to type traditionally, you will be struggling.

The screen has pixel issues already with bars across the screen (I'm a photographer so I'm gentle with it) and battery life is awful. It always has to be plugged it. Worst purchase.

Excellent performance for a laptop

I recently got the Legion 5 with i7-118000H and RTX 3060. The performance I see is so far the best in several laptop I owned in past few years. The graphics card is a full-fledged 115W TDP beast, with on par performance as it's desktop variant. The CPU is also much better than 8 and 9th gen of Intel in terms of temperature.

Is my main laptop super fast for powerful games.

Laptop with great performance, the screen is ok, could be better resolution and brightness, but you can use the HDMI output for a Better video monitor. Possible improvements: Please Lenovo adds a magnetic plug to the power connector. The thunderbolt port doesn't charge the battery. The Lenovo 15.6 Legion 5 Gaming Laptop (Phantom Blue) Is a great option if you need a good performance laptop at a decent price.

Fast, quiet, cool, and non-glare

By Tuan

Date: 2022-03-21

Fast, quiet, cool, non-glare screen, more USB ports, the battery charger is slim (6 x 3.5 x 3/4), nice keyboard with different light colors. I use this laptop for my video and audio editing where I can cut the time from 14 hours (i3 laptop) down to 4 hours. So far, I have no complaint. I also downgraded to Windows 10 with no issue because Lenovo always supplies all required drivers.

Is this device brand new? And is is it possible to be provided with Arabic keys keyboard? Also can the charger be provided with UK standard plug ?
Asked by: Musaab
Device is brand new. Keyboard is US. Buy any other language stickers separately. I have tried to search replacement keyboard - no luck - seems like model is quite new, so only stickers is a way forward. Charger is 100-240V so it will work in UK - just buy US-UK simple wall plug adapter, or just any UK PC power supply cable. Charger has normal 3 pin socket as in any PC desktop, monitor, printer, etc., not the 3 pin laptop socket.

Asked by: todd
That really will depend on the software you will be using and its requirements and compatibility. We recommend you check with the specific editing software publisher's web sites of the software you will be using, for their compatibility with Windows 10 Home 64-bit operating system and the minimum/recommended hardware requirements (Is a Graphics card required, the processor speed and the minimum required system RAM and the minimum available hard drive space) to run their program, then compare those requirements to this system's configuration.
