The 14-inch configuration of the RTX 4060-powered Legion Slim 5 has been marked down by 22 percent, which turns Lenovo’s well-equipped gaming laptop into a very compelling option for mobile gamers who are in the market for a mid-range machine that weighs less than 4 lbs and sports one of the latest Zen 4 processors from AMD.
Although Lenovo’s Legion Slim 5 lineup is generally targeted at gamers who often carry around their laptop, the recently discounted 16-inch version of this sought-after machine may not be compact and light enough for some particularly active gamers. Fortunately, a similarly enticing RTX 4060 configuration of the 14-inch Legion Slim 5 OLED has now also gone on sale at a reputable online retailer.
More precisely, Best Buy is currently selling the 2023 Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8 with the powerful AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS octa-core processor and the dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM for just $1,149 including free shipping. This SKU also ships with soldered 16GB LPDDR5x RAM and a 1TB SSD. More importantly, this OLED gaming laptop deal offers a mentionable discount of 22 percent or US$330 relative to the official list price. For reference, this offer for the 14-inch Lenovo Legion Slim 5 beats a very popular deal from late October by more than $50.
Please check out our comprehensive written review before buying the Legion Slim 5 Gen 8. Alternatively, our in-depth YouTube review thoroughly explores the weaknesses and strengths of the RTX 4060-equipped gaming laptop from Lenovo. For example, we were quite impressed by the lovely 120Hz OLED display with full DCI-P3 coverage and a resolution of 2880 by 1800 pixels. Additionally, this notebook does not throttle under load and provides a lot of CPU and GPU power in a relatively small and good-looking 14-inch package. All in all, shoppers who have around US$1,200 to spend and are looking for their sweet spot between portability and performance should certainly take this deal into consideration.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
