Who said that a laptop having only 14 inches for its display size could not be suitable for high-end gaming? Lenovo is eager once again to prove the opposite through the release of the new Legion Slim 5 model.

Despite its smaller size, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 laptop manages to house impressive hardware, boasting an AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS APU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 with a 105 W TGP. Notebookcheck has spread the word about the release of Lenovo’s new laptop. The aforementioned configuration facilitates boost clock speeds of 2.37 GHz for the GPU, which is paired with 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.

Notably, the Legion Slim 5 can be improved with up to 64 GB of LPDDR5X-6400 RAM and 1 TB of PCIe 4.0 storage. Lenovo incorporates a 73.6 Wh battery, which is capable of charging from 0% to 70% within just half an hour, courtesy of the 140 W USB Type-C charging capability. The device’s standout element is the OLED display, spanning 14.5 inches and boasting a native resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels.

The panel’s brightness reaches a peak of 400 nits, which means that you’ll be able to use the laptop without a fuss, even under imposing sunlight. The refresh rate is also worthy of attention, on the other hand, as it can reach 120 Hz.

Weighing around 1.9 kg and measuring 21 mm in thickness, the 14-inch Lenovo Legion Slim 5 lacks a number pad due to its compact design. However, this was pretty expected and obvious.

Lenovo’s anticipated launch of its forthcoming gaming laptop is scheduled for the next month, with pricing details still under wraps. However, the base model of the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 is set to start at $1,439.99 in the US.
