Lenovo’s RTX 3070-powered Legion System 5i gaming rig is going to be yours for under $1, 800


Deals: 2021 is not off to a superb start for prospective INDIVIDUAL builders. New GPUs or perhaps CPUs (to a lesser extent) have been incredibly difficult to acquire, end result pandemic-related supply chain troubles, as well as the ongoing cryptomining phenomenon. This has made buying a pre-built machine much more appealing for several — especially if they invest in Lenovo, which is now promising an RTX 3070-equipped machine for less than $1, 600.

The machine, dubbed the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i , has an MSRP of $1,649. However, if you use the coupon code “EXTRAFIVE” (all caps, without the quotes) during the ordering process, you’ll save over $80, dropping the price down to $1,567.

So, what all does that net you — aside from the RTX 3070? You’ll get a 10th-gen, Intel Core i7 10700 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2933MHz (coming on two 8GB sticks), a year of “Legion Ultimate Support,” a 1TB PCIe SSD, and a 650W power supply.

Those components, coupled with the 5i’s included USB keyboard and mouse (not to mention the pre-installed copy of Windows 10 Home), all make for a pretty good deal. If you were to snag all of these parts yourself, you might easily pay above $1,600, and that price doesn’t even factor in the 5i’s case or peripherals.

Speaking of the case, Lenovo went with a pretty flashy one here. It has a useful handle in the back to make the unit easier to lift and an eye-catching front panel complete with a glowing Legion LED logo, and side-facing vent holes for airflow.

We’re not sure how long the EXTRAFIVE deal will be going on, so if you have the cash to spare, now might be the right time to splurge on one of Lenovo’s better pre-built offerings.
