The Lenovo Legion 5 17" is designed for gaming and performance-intensive tasks with its powerful processor and dedicated graphics, but it's heavier and has a shorter battery life, making it less portable. The Lenovo Slim Pro 7 14, on the other hand, also offers good performance with a more portable design, higher resolution touchscreen, and significantly longer battery life, making it suitable for business and general use. Both have similar prices, but if you prioritize portability and battery life, the Slim Pro 7 is the better option, while the Legion 5 is better for gaming and performance-centric use. Give Feedback

Sebastian Bade | February 2022
"The Lenovo Legion 5 17 is a current-gen 17-inch gaming laptop and equipped with the latest AMD CPU and a powerful GPU, that manages to reach its full potential. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H is a very good choice for this laptop and able to maintain its performance level for long periods of time. Our test model only falls behind consistently in a direct comparison with its competitors that are often equipped with eight cores and 16 threads. Despite this, the Legion 5 17 leaves an excellent impression and is almost able to keep up with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 mobile GPU in synthetic benchmarks."

Matthew S. Smith | May 2023
"The Lenovo Slim Pro 7 is an attractive, portable laptop that’s ideal if you need a combination of CPU and GPU performance. It also nails the fundamentals with solid connectivity, an enjoyable keyboard, a large touchpad, and top-notch webcam. Display quality is a weakness, but it’s an acceptable compromise for the laptop’s extremely competitive $1,199 MSRP. The Slim Pro 7 is a versatile, affordable laptop and hard to beat for the price."
