The Lenovo LOQ 15 has solid performance capabilities due to its AMD Ryzen 7 processor and Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics card, which makes it suitable for a variety of tasks like gaming, engineering, and 3D work. The display is of a good standard with a 144Hz refresh rate, but the resolution is 1920 x 1080, which is good for general use but less clear for detailed engineering work. Portability-wise, it's relatively heavy and offers modest battery life, meaning it's not the best for on-the-go usage. If you're looking for a laptop with a balance between performance and price and can accept a heavier build and shorter battery life, the Lenovo LOQ 15 could be a good choice. It comes with a backlit keyboard, a decent range of ports including USB-C and HDMI, and has the capability to handle hardware ray tracing and DLSS for improved gaming graphics. Give Feedback

PCMag

Mark Knapp | August 2023
"Even after a short time with the LOQ 15, you'll find it has a lot going for it, but ultimately it's just "good"—not quite a star. The performance is respectable for the hardware it’s running, but Lenovo had to make some design sacrifices to trim the price. One of the better aspects is the keyboard, making it one of the better low-cost gaming laptops to actually put your hands on."
