Here’s a look at the specifications for the latest Lenovo offerings.

There are narrow bezels on all four sides, which accounts for an 85.6% screen-to-body ratio. What’s more, the display offers a 144Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. Under the hood, the laptop runs on the 10th-Gen Intel Core i9 H-series processors with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GPU for graphics processing. To power the internals, there is an 80WHr battery, which the company suggests offers up to 8 hours of battery life and includes features to enhance battery performance even further.
Being a gaming laptop, there are a few additional hardware additions to the laptop, such as an intelligent cooling system, called ColdFront 2.0: that ensures the hardware and software work in synergy, thermal sensors: to keep the temperature under check, heat sink with two fans: to dissipate heat efficiently, to name a few.
Lenovo Legion 5Pi and 5i
The Lenovo Legion 5Pi and 5i retain most of the features from the Legion 7i, except for a few changes. For instance, the Legion 5Pi incorporates certain high-caliber features that offer it an edge for streamers and eSports gaming enthusiasts, whereas the 5i carries most of these specifications, but restricts itself to being a mainstream gaming laptop.
At its core, both Legion 5Pi and 5i run on the same 10th-Gen Intel Core i7 H-series processor and have NVIDIA’s GTX 1650ti (5Pi) or RTX 2060 (5i) GPU for all the graphics intensive operations.

It features a 144Hz refresh rate display with support for sRGB color gamut, not to mention, the usual set of gaming add-ons similar to the Legion 7i. On the other hand, the Legion 5i features an iridescent logo on its top cover and comes with a FullHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate, along with thermal solutions to keep the device temperature under control and prevent throttling.
