The Lenovo Legion 5 82B500MMIN is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is slightly more powerful than the i7 9750H. The 4600H should be able to handle most of your active workloads of Photo and Video editing or any other CPU-intensive task the only bottleneck here being the 8GB of RAM which you can easily upgrade. The GTX 1650, on the other hand, is an entry-level GPU with limited potential for GPU intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and Gaming. Now compared to the previous GTX 1650 is about 40 percent more powerful than GTX 1050ti and is about 15 percent slower when compared to GTX 1060. The 1TB HDD+256GB SSD should be enough for most users which can also be upgraded.
Design and Ports
Lenovo Legion 5 82B500MMIN has full plastic body construction but does not look or feel cheap but as a matter of fact, it looks and feels premium. The top lid has a matte finish that won’t attract fingerprints and with its minimal design blends well into an office setting. The display has a little flex especially when being opened with only one hand. To achieve the narrow bezels, Lenovo has gone for the webcam (nose cam) below the display. The hinges hold the display firmly in its place and allow an opening angle of 180 degrees. The Design is very similar to its predecessor the legion y540.
