Only a couple minor flaws.

Strengths:

Excellent Build quality Aluminum Chassis (Top and Bottom) Gorgeous screen Nice battery life (compared to the Intel model) Keyboard feels great to type on with near perfect key travel. Responsive touchpad.

Weaknesses:

Crap MediaTek Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Module - Easily swapped out. Cramped number pad (but at least it has one) Touchpad a tad small.

Additional Comments:

I have owned and been using this laptop for close to a month now so I will give any potential buyer my personal feedback on this. This is not some sponsored review, I paid my own money for this and over the last few weeks I have mostly positive things to say, and the negatives are not a deal breaker by any means......so here goes..... Firstly, coming from a MacBook Pro, I wanted a laptop not made of plastic, I don't care how strong the ABS may be, I wanted an Aluminum build, and this has that.....VERY NICE. Second, the 16:10 aspect ratio - more screen real estate is a plus in my books, and the 2560x1600 resolution with HDR and Dolby Vision is absolutely striking. The 4 Zone RGB Keyboard is nice, and it is more than bright enough for me. It does NOT have per key RGB, the Legion writing on the lid does not light up, and no other RGB to be found.....that was fine with me when I was looking for a gaming laptop as I prefer my laptop to be more subdued....I don't need it to stand out in a crowd. The keyboard is the best keyboard I have ever typed on. Fantastic feel and the key travel is near perfect.....not too shallow, and not such a long press down.....oh and the keys and the secondary functions are all lit up, other ones I looked at the secondary functions were not lit, so using them in a darkened room would prove to be a pain. The Webcam, nothing special but at least it has one (I'm looking at you ASUS). The switch on the side to disable it instead of a cover on the camera or software is a nice touch - oh and it has Tobii Horizon which is only Head Tracking for some games, not Eye Tracking....still makes Microsoft Flight Simulator a different experience all together - could be mentioned in the specs Memory Express. I guess one small nit pick is the number pad, it is just crammed in there it seems and small, I do find I hit the Num Lock occasionally when I am wanting the Backspace.....although I do seem to be getting better at that, so in time I feel I will get used to the keyboard.....just something to be aware of when you first get this laptop. The touch pad, very responsive, also very sensitive. It is not a Glass Trackpad but rather has what I feel as a mylar coating on it, Glass is better, but this is again, just my preference. To me, it could also be bigger. The writing on the rear of the laptop above the ports is awesome, not lit, but nice to know where the ports are without having to look behind. There are 2 NVMe slots, one is free and obviously one used with the factory installed 1TB (which was a Samsung in my case).....I added a 2TB to it. It has both RAM slots filled with 2 8GB DDR5 4800MHz modules. The Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module was a MediaTek.......This was immediately removed and I installed my intel AX210 module in it's place. For the price, it is an absolute gorgeous machine, excellent build quality, aluminum case, excellent keyboard, good port selection (I didn't care about not having an SD card Slot - some may be turned off by that). Speakers are OK, nothing like the MacBook Pro ones, then again what is.....those were phenomenal, but I usually have a headset on when gaming anyway.....speaking of which the RTX 3060 is not the most powerful, but plays the games I play just fine, and the Fans, no coil whine on my unit, they are nice....thermals are nicely controlled....although I would like to see Lenovo add a Fan Curve in their software for the user. I chose this one over the intel model as the Ryzen has a much better battery life.
