Lenovo has plenty of doorbuster deals on its website ahead of Black Friday. Among those deals is the Legion 5 Gen 6 gaming laptop for 14% off. That discount brings the price of the laptop down to $1,460, allowing it to compete with the best RTX 3060 laptops in both specs and price.

The Legion 5 Gen 6 is a 15-inch gaming laptop powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. The particular model on sale pairs that GPU with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-11800H CPU. The laptop also has 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD (Gen 4).

The price of the Legion 5 Gen 6 gaming laptop is even lower because the discounted model is running Windows 10. A model with the same internals running Windows 11 costs $1,810. This price difference occurs because companies like Lenovo want to get rid of older models that still have Windows 10. We saw a similar situation with Dell earlier this month.

You should be able to upgrade the Legion 5 Gen 6 to Windows 11. In essence, you're saving hundreds of dollars for being willing to either upgrade to Windows 11 manually or to stick with Windows 10.

The RTX 3060 inside the Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 gaming laptop is one of the most affordable of NVIDIA's latest generation of GPUs. It can handle the best PC games.
