Ok deal if you have a microcenter near by as you don't have to wait for the crazy shipping time. Still doesn't match up to the Walmart deal for $100 more or the previous Lenovo website deal (though many got cancellations). The pro 5 has a better and brighter screen as well. 3060 to 3070 is also a big jump.

The YMMV unicorn that led a lot of sour people looking for but never got, I almost gave up also but finally got one. Whenever someone mentions it the people who missed out get super sour and hate on you. Lol

Pro also has different cooling and is thicker maybe to accommodate the cooling. Haven't heard if it runs cooler.

One of the reasons I went for this is the screen size. If you're going to try to game on it, there's a big spread between a 15.6" screen and a 17.3" screen - it's about 25% more screen size but the same resolution, refresh rate and quality display. Most of the Legion deals are for the 15.6" model. I know the Pro is in-between, but that's also more expensive and generally unavailable to buy.

I think many people use a docking station when at home, that's what I plan to do. Docking station plus a 24" or 27" monitor.

Yeah, Microcenter has the 15.6" version for the same price but don't think that's a good deal.

Because it was a YMMV unicorn. Talking about it is bragging and douchie.

This is normal price for a 3060. Also last black Friday 2060s dropped to 899 so this is not really any kind of deal.
Why do you always compare to black Friday? Do you have a time machine?
