Not sure all I know is the thermals on this one are very good when gaming. I did notice the hinge was a lot stiffer on this year's (good thing imo) compared to my 15in legion 5 from last year.

2021 model has an upgraded chasis... And completed different design.. This is just the leftover inventory from last year and slapped in a newer cpu and gpu... 2021 model has gsync and a 1440p (2k) screen.

ryc22 is wrong. He is talking about the Legion Pro. This is the 2021 model of the Legion 5. It has a very similar design to last year with the two differences being USB C next to the headphone jack as opposed to USB A and no kensington lock anymore. The rear USB C now supports power delivery.

This thread has been disappointing in terms of helping somebody make an informed decision. I'm going to try to help a bit.

Don't listen to the "last year's chassis" guy. Most laptop makers don't really even "make" their own laptops. Faceless tech companies will sell them the design. In this way it's possible that you get a laptop from one company that is internally similar to a laptop from another. Like if MSI and Lenovo bought their design from Quanta computer, then those laptops may be more closely related than you'd imagine.

What matters to you, the consumer? 1stly, the CPU and GPU chips, along with the RAM and storage. Secondly, (mostly for gamers) you need to consider wattage and cooling. You may think a 3080 beats a 3070, and you wouldn't be wrong to think that way. The issue is that if the 3080 is being underfed by low wattage, it may underperform vs the 3070.

Cooling is an issue too. Heat kills electronics. Laptops are a compromise solution to begin with, due to packing an entire computer's hardware into a compact space. When your laptop heats up, it's programmed to scale back performance in order to reduce thermals. This is good...you don't want your gear to cook. But the downside is you lose performance when this happens.

You can have the two different laptops with the same specs, and due to the thermal solution, they could perform differently. Add in the fact that each laptop has its own wattage rating, and you can have wildly different levels of performance between similarly specced laptops.

Honestly, it's a nightmare for the common consumer. So it's up to us to set the record straight and help people understand. I'll post the details in a different comment since this one is long enough.
Didn't 5800H came out this year. How can this be last year version? This was announced at CES 2021.
You do realize this deal is for the 17" (not the 15")…

This is last year's model... Which is a pretty good model... I'm using that model now... It would be better to get the legion 5 pro (2021 model).. Should be around this same price on sale... You won't be disappointed

How can you tell the chassis difference? Isn't this the 2021 model?

Do you remember (can you share) how you triggered the glitched price?

$1150 is the real price folks. A bunch of people just had it delivered from ordering it 2 months ago. $1500 is a bit much for a non-pro Legion 5. I paid $1500 for a Legion 5 Pro with Ryzen 5800H, 3070, 32GB RAM, 2TB SSD, 16" QHD screen.

This Legion 5 has a smaller 15" 1080p with far inferior color gamut, worse cooling, plastic all around vs magnesium on the L5P, lower memory, lower SSD. There are a bunch of drawbacks that can be mitigated by dropping the price to a more reasonable level like $1150.
