The ASUS TUF Gaming F17 offers a solid build tailored more towards gaming, with a dedicated graphics card that supports demanding games, but with a heavier and larger build that may not be as easy to carry around. On the other hand, the Lenovo Legion Slim 5, though similarly priced, provides a balance between performance and portability, which might be more appealing if you frequently move around. It also has a higher battery capacity that would last longer on a single charge, making it more suitable if you're away from power outlets for extended periods. If you require a machine for general use with occasional gaming and prioritize a lighter laptop with better battery life, the Lenovo might be the right choice, whereas the ASUS would cater to those who need more robust gaming performance and can manage with a heavier device.

NotebookCheck

Christian Hintze | April 2022
"One of the Asus TUF Gaming F17’s highlights is without a doubt its excellent gaming performance. The fact that Asus configured the RTX 3060 GPU for its specified maximum of 140 W is became immediately noticeable in our benchmarks. For a 17-inch notebook the F17 also offers a very long battery life, which makes it somewhat portable. On the flip side is the display. It may be saved by its good overall contrast ratio, but its overall brightness is simply too low, and its response times are too slow for a gaming device. The F17’s successor needs to improve upon this."

PCMag

Mark Knapp | August 2023
"The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 acknowledges that a gaming laptop doesn’t have to be as thick as possible and can still ensure adequate cooling when the muscles need flexing. To this end, in the Slim 5 Gen 8, it finds a neat balance of refined, trimmed-down design that still lets its internals cruise (even above their max power ratings). Lenovo then added in some high-end build quality with an altogether excellent keyboard that’s useful for both work and play."
