When choosing between the Lenovo LOQ 16 and the Lenovo Yoga 6, consider the following: the Lenovo LOQ 16 is more expensive but offers higher performance for 3D modeling, machine learning tasks, and gaming due to its dedicated Nvidia RTX 4050 graphics card. However, it's heavier and has a shorter battery life. The Lenovo Yoga 6 is less costly and much more portable with a longer battery life, making it ideal for general use and on-the-go productivity. Its integrated Vega 8 graphics are sufficient for everyday tasks but less suited for intensive graphics work. Both have comparable memory and storage, but the Yoga 6 adds the convenience of a touchscreen. Give Feedback

Christian Hintze | September 2023
"Gaming laptops with an RTX 4060 are available starting from about 1,000 Euros (~$1,060), even in 16-inch format. For the supposedly affordable Lenovo LOQ 16 (1,500 Euros, ~$1,591), the manufacturer particularly saves in the equipment and materials compared to the more expensive Legion series. In addition, the LOQ is slightly heavier and more bulky. What remains is anything but a laptop full of difficult compromises. Instead, this is a more than solid gaming laptop that focusses on the 3D performance.Q is slightly heavier and more bulky."

"The AMD R7-7730U in the Lenovo Yoga 6 13 provides a suitable answer to the limited cooling capabilities of a convertible - especially in tablet mode. It draws high computing power from a comparatively limited power supply so that less heat has to be dissipated at the same time."
