I`m currently thinking of buying a gaming laptop(and I can`t wait for Ryzen, my previous one died) and I had narrowed my choice to Lenovo Legion Y540-15IRH i7-9750HF/15,6FHD144Hz/16GB/1000SSD/RTX2060(the cost is 1430 USD and that includes sales tax/VAT in Poland 23% so it would be something like 1165USD compared to US prices) but for around 100 USD more I`m able to buy Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05H 81Y600C0PB i7-10750H/15,6FHD/144Hz/8GB/512SSD/RTX2060/NoOS. Apart from CPU difference 9750HF(I know this one doesn`t have integrated graphics) vs 10750H is there any reason to move up? I heard cooling is better in 5i but the other hand undervolting is disabled. I watched some videos, read the reviews but nowhere did I find any comparison except maybe visual features, moving the webcam or removing touchpad buttons that doesn`t make much difference to me. Does any of you have any knowledge about this two laptops?

5i is a noticeable upgrade from Y540 (improvements in many ways), get it and add another 8GB RAM

The differences I`m aware of:

-different position of webcam(under/above) the screen

-a little bit better cooling in 5i but the undervolting is now disabled on BIOS level

-no buttons on a trackpad

-the same version of RTX 2060

-slightly better CPU(3% according to CPU benchmarks)

-the y540 has a HF CPU so no integrated GPU ergo abhorrent battery life(but I`m not gonna be very mobile so no issue here)

-slightly better RAM clocks (2666 vs 3200)

 

None of the above points are noticeable in my view, were you thinking about about something else?

undervolting doesn't mean lower temps.

not the same.

you mentioned a few, but there are other things like build quality, thermals. improved keyboard (feedback, layout), battery size (optional 80Wh), advanced optimus etc
