Gaming laptops come in a manner of specifications and the more affordable options that are actually worth buying usually come with an Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 processor and NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics. Lenovo has the Legion 5, which comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H CPU and NVIDIA GTX 1660Ti GPU, and it's discounted right now for Black Friday.

Lenovo's Legion 5 is a very capable gaming laptop. That Ryzen 7 and GTX 1660Ti combo is more than enough to push through up to 144 frames to the IPS display, allowing you to enjoy some fluid gameplay. As well as that, you also get 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD to store your favorite games.

Other highlights of the Legion 5 include the keyboard switches and a 5ms response time for all your inputs. This is also the most affordable we've seen the Legion 5 yet, making this an even better deal if you're using Black Friday as a means to purchase your next gaming laptop for less.
