A big thank you to Lenovo for providing the review sample.

Lenovo has a long history, having been formed in 1984. Since then, they have grown to become one of the largest PC vendors in the world. It stands to reason that they would not overlook the PC gaming market either, and thus they have the Legion branding, which extends to both desktops and laptops. This drive to continue pushing forward has made them one of if not the largest vendor of personal computers in the world, serving customers in over 160 countries. But being the biggest doesn't mean the best, so it's time to put that to the test.


In today's review, I will be looking at the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i model number 90NC001LUS. Priced at $1449.99, it comes equipped with an Intel i5-10700, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super, 512 GB NVMe SSD, ARGB lighting, and numerous other features associated with the PC gaming market. Considering its price point is roughly around the sweet spot for a proper high-end gaming experience, it will be interesting to see how Lenovo's relatively affordable offering performs when pushed to the limit.
