The screens offer a refresh rate of 144 Hz, and the diagonals are 15.6 inches and 17.3 inches, with Full HD resolution and Dolby Vision support. We also have Harman Kardon acoustics with Dolby Atmos.
Lenovo Legion 5P is also a laptop, but one designed for eSports, with a processor that goes up to AMD Ryzen 7 4800 H-Series Mobile and a graphics card up to RTX 2060. The screen is a 15.6 inch Full HD, with wide viewing angles and refresh rates of 144 Hz, plus response time of less than 5 ms. There is also optional Dolby Vision support.
We move to the budget area with IdeaPad Gaming 3, 15.6-inch laptop, with AMD Ryzen 7 4800-H processor, Full HD screen with thin edges and a variant with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The graphics card reaches up to a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and we also have the NVIDIA Turing architecture.
