This model stands out from the other machines in our selection by the size of its 17.3-inch screen. It will be perfect for people looking for visual comfort on a screen with a larger diagonal than the standard 15.6 inch. Also, who says bigger, necessarily says heavier weight. This Asus TUF indeed displays 2.6 kg on the scale, which remains reasonable and will allow you to take it with you without too much difficulty.

The hardware part is basic but effective and consists of an AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor clocked at 3 GHz, 8 GB RAM memory, a 512 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD.

Lenovo’s best seller, the Legion 5 is the manufacturer’s ultimate gaming benchmark. While it is displayed at 899.99 euros instead of 1,299.99 euros, its price plummets a little more thanks to an ODR of 100 euros.
