Lenovo Legion 5i Pro 16 Review (i7-12700H & RTX 3060)

Rating: 8.5.

The Lenovo Legion 5i Pro 16 is one of those product names that throws you a bit of a curve as the CPU in this notebook is actually a Core i7 rather than a Core i5. Putting that minor quibble to one side, we are looking at a gaming notebook packed with Intel 12th Gen and Nvidia 30 series that sells for less than £1800 in the UK. Is it a bargain or is it cheap tat? (Spoiler alert, I was impressed).
