Hi, I'm mainly looking for a future laptop that can last me at least 4yeads.

Display: srgb 70% +- I'm fine, 15.6inch
16GB ram or upgradable to 16GB
Thermals decent - 2 pipes ok? Maybe with 2 heat sinks...
Gpu: 1660Ti, or 1660 series

Mainly usage will be work purpose excel, sheets. Thinking of taking up some basic programming skills(powerbi, SQL)

Casual gaming.

Main purpose is to not overheat...

Thinking of Asus /Lenovo/MSI..... illegear was in my consideration but saw too many reviews of battery swollen issue.

Budget :4k+-
Wait time - till end year or early next year

Anyone knows what is the difference between these two lenovo legion 5 pro model ?
1. 82JQ005DMJ (RM6,896.34) vs 82JQ005HMJ (RM7,709.00) ? Tried to see the comparisons on the website and apparently the more expensive model have lower RAM capacity but higher speeds ? and storage ? I am confused.

2. Any promo code can be used on lenovo website right now ?
3. How long is the pre order/delivery ?
*
after using coupon both prices are same...so better go for DMJ due to more RAM (code IPRICE for this model)

no one knows how long u need to wait, if lucky mayb 1 month, if not mayb 2 months or longer

Thermal performance is not judged by how many heatpipes...

Your budget would be very difficult to get 1660Ti or 3050Ti...either increase budget or lower requirements

Wait time?

Hi, saw tis offer from lenovo website, fast shipment in 3 to 6 business day. Is this a good buy?
Lenovo Legion Legion5 15ARH05
Part Number:  82B5005YMJ
After Instant Savings:
RM3,817.54

After idling a few weeks after getting a recommendation here...

I ended up buying this instead of Thinkpad L/E15.

Somehow much cheaper with better specs... Just below 3.5 with IPRICE

you need to look at real world performance, from reviews

would say at least RM4.5k...but since RTX30 mobile ady out, go for that

not much cheap 3050Ti/3050 laptops now so i suggest to wait a while
