The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro sits in the company's gaming range, but that Pro suffix means that this notebook is designed for work, too. Lots of people use the same machine for work and play, if that's your case, check out the Legion.
This is the one I have, but with the 4-zone RGB and 2 SSDs.
It's definitely the best laptop I've ever had. The CPU performance is OK, not as good as other models, but having a full power laptop 3070 is really nice here.
I do agree about the touchpad, though they pretty much had no choice after putting in full size arrow keys, so they had to move the touchpad to the left.
42db - 48db is just far too noisy. I don’t use headsets and the speakers on laptops are never that great. I’ve still yet to see a gaming laptop that isn’t loud af. As for this particular laptop it’s dreadful value. A friend of mine recently picked up a 3060 laptop with a 5600H for $819, half the money. It’s very loud though.
