Looks like, if you have the latest firmware, this is a 110w tgp gpu, which is exactly what you should expect from a slim laptop.
Old versions of the firmware limited it to 95w, so please make sure, when you get this, to update to the latest firmware.

this looks like old news, and it probably ships with latest firmware, but just in case.

edit: this may even be a previous version of the triton 300 but update anyways
If I'm not mistaken the 3070 on this has a TGP of 110W. The brightness seems to be 250-nits, not sure about the latter though.
A decent deal for the price I guess.

However, Legion 5 pro with a higher wattage 3070 has gone for $1250-1300 by a certain authorized Lenovo dealer. For a few bucks more you'd be getting a much better screen and a better GPU, to say the least.

Acording to nerdwallet.com

Affirm will perform a soft credit check. This won't affect your credit score or show up on your credit report.

Doesn't hit credit from my experience. At least if it does, it takes months. I have a tendency to pay things off early so maybe it just was never open long enough for the credit bureaus to pick it up..

It hits credit if you default on it and don't pay it

Keep in mind, on a slim laptop like this w 110w TGP, you may run into cooling problems. Some games will crash

Don't be crazy, the fans will ramp up to an annoying level, and it may throttle, but they've been making slim gaming laptops for many years now, they are designed to NOT just crash playing games.

Agreed, you may run into subpar performance issues, but crashing just from trying to play more intensive games? Not likely. Unless you have a defective unit with fans that are far below optimal rpm speeds.

Where is legion 5 pro 3070 for $1300? Cheapest I could find on this site is $1379-$1399, all of which were front page deals. Even at $1399 legion 5 pro is better value than this.

Quote from FOXHOUND213 :
That's such a loaded comment. There are slim laptops, but with better cooling. Acer isn't the best. And slim laptops are typically 50-80w TGP, don't go spewing nonsense that's going to cost people money.

It's going to be loud af and overheat, so you can't safely overclock it. Even if you could, you'd need a separate fan and thermal paste. And don't even think of running Warzone on ultra, you'll melt other components if it doesn't crash

Edit: Typo
You are crazy if you think playing a game on ultra is going to melt your components.
At worst the fans will ramp, the laptop will reach it's maximum temps, throttle or not, and you will simply have lower frame rates than someone with a more powerful gpu.
And nobody said you should be overclocking this laptop it isn't designed for that. Yes overclocking can cause overheating and more thermal issues everyone knows this.
Stop making people worry that their laptops are going to just crash.
This laptop, just like basically all modern laptops, will simply perform according to it's specific limited power and thermal envelope.
