I would say now is an okay time if you could use a new one now. There isn't anything too revolutionary around the corner. I would argue that the 'revolutions' (AMD Ryzen 4000 series, Nvidia Turing technology, and NVMe solid state drives which are like 7 times faster than already blazing fast SSDs) just happened and now is a good time to get in.
This is currently perhaps the most popular deal right now for $1000 if you live in the USA.

I’m a complete noob when it comes to PC hardware and specs, but in the market for sub 1k USD laptop. How does this compare to something like this Lenovo Legion 5
I don’t totally care for the red color scheme of this nitro, but it seems like a good deal to not pass up?

Am I dumb or does Amazon have this at a better deal? Also is this laptop suitable for VR with Oculus Link and Quest 1?

It still shows for $999 and is in stock as of right now.

What's the catch? I have this pre ordered for $1000 but this Nitro 5 seems better for only a little bit more.

Specs for anyone wondering: Lenovo Legion 5 Gaming Laptop, 15" FHD (1920x1080) IPS Screen, AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Processor, 16GB DDR4, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA GTX 1660Ti, Windows 10, 82B1000AUS, Phantom Black.
I got it from this Amazon link at $999: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-1920x1080-Processor-Windows-82B1000AUS/dp/B08BB9RWXD/ref=pd_di_sccai_1/137-8527604-7155129?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B08BB9RWXD&pd_rd_r=f04086fa-8fdf-4a55-8be5-1f287ea0dbd7&pd_rd_w=iCPxv&pd_rd_wg=h8T5T&pf_rd_p=5415687b-2c9d-46da-88a4-bbcfe8e07f3c&pf_rd_r=6ERBW7GFBPWG5JQGRNTM&psc=1&refRID=6ERBW7GFBPWG5JQGRNTM
I was actually looking to get the Acer Predator Helios 300 at first, a post in r/LaptopDeals appeared on my feed saying it got lowered to $999. While I was looking to pull the trigger, the price got bumped up back again to around $1300, so I just held off my purchase.
I started to look for other options, which I narrowed down to the Lenovo Legion 5 and the HP Omen 15. The price difference between the two was around $100 at the time, with the Omen having slightly better specs (RTX 2060).
r/LaptopDeals was my go-to subreddit whenever I opened the app, as I was waiting for a deal for one of them and not miss out this time around. As soon as I saw the Legion got lowered to $999 I pulled the trigger. I ended-up paying $1169 in total ($69 in tax, $100 in shipping).
I'm very happy with the laptop and how it looks, perfect for use at work without grabbing everyone's attention. I haven't tested any games on it yet (I copied FIFA 20 on the NVME tho), as I've to empty up the 1TB Crucial MX500 from my old laptop first (which I plan to put on the HDD space available on the Legion, as a main drive for games/media).

For around $1000, Lenovo Legion 5 is the best choice for video editing, encoding, and etc. Ryzen 4800H is the processor you want as it outperforms the i7-10750H in multi-core intensive tasks which includes video editing and encoding while being more power efficient. It is however equipped with a GTX 1660Ti so you may want to wait to see the Ryzen 4800+ RTX 2060 combo version of this laptop (which many people are waiting for). Also the G15 laptop comes with GTX 1660Ti Max-q which has a lower power 60W version compared to GTX 1660Ti 80W and it will be slower by about 10%. For now Lenovo Legion 5 is the best bang for your buck if you look at the specs and build quality and check out reviews on Youtube/Amazon if it meets your standards for your laptop.

All this for $999 can’t really go wrong. The only thing is with these specs you can’t expect great battery life.

I just ordered my first gaming laptop as well, with a $1100 budget. I have been researching for about a month and narrowed down my top 3 to the legion 5, hp Omen 15 (found a good sale), and the zephyrus m15.
The zephyrus looked perfect at first, but doesn't really allow you to upgrade the hardware that readily. On top of that, the screen that comes in that price range only shows around 66% sRGB, and has slow response times. I did like the look of this laptop the best.
At one point, I convinced myself that the omen was going to be my choice. I read complaints about the flimsy screen, so I went to best buy to check it out in person. The screen was flimsy for sure, but sturdy enough. What I really didn't like was how loose the screen hinge was. Also, I really didn't like the keyboard and touchpad was below average. Obviously a subjective aspect of the laptop, but important to me.
The legion 5, though made of plastic, was by far the my durable feeling laptop. The keyboard was a dream to use as well. TouchPad was forgettable, but I use a mouse anyway. I read that the 144hz panel was extremely vivid, at 100% sRGB, with a fast response time.
I was able to find a brand new Legion 5 Ryzen 7, with gtx 1660i, 16gb RAM, 512gb SSD for $1050 on Amazon and I pulled the trigger. It has yet to come in the mail, though with the easily upgradable hardware, and apparent durability, I believe it will last me for a long time. The value to price of the Legion 5 was too good to pass up.

Are your models an i5? I'm only seeing i7 models and i5 is only on the scam "customize" one.

Amazon, Legion 5 4800h 1660ti, 16gb 3200mhz, 512gb nvme, 144hz 300+nit 100% srgb, 999 freaking dollars.
Only things I'd change would be RTX 2060 and an 80wh battery instead of 60wh. But, the 1660ti is more than fine, and none of the Legion 5 premades have the 80wh. Also the trade-off for having the 60wh is a 2.5-in drive slot which currently has a 2tb HDD in mine, and since I swapped out the 500GB nvme for a 1tb nvme I have 3TB total storage in a laptop...

I see. R/ITMan2000 was referring to the Ryzen 7 version. What you have here is the Intel version. The Ryzen version is faster, more power efficient, and cheaper than the Intel version.
I recommend this one (if you're in the US) : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BB9RWXD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HCyvFbYHYFPAY

This Lenovo Legion 5 AMD 7 4800H with 1660 TI, 16 GB RAM and 512 SSD seems to be one of the best choices. It goes for 999$.
I'm actually leaning to get this one but just holding off till Black Friday or Cyber Monday to see if I can get any better deals.

Legnovo Legion 5 if your budget is $1000. Get the variant with 4800H CPU and GTX1660Ti GPU if you can (link to Amazon US below). 4800H has great multithreaded performance which will be good for his computer science work, and 1660Ti will play those games just fine.

You might as well spend a little more and get the legion 5 with the 4800h and gtx 1660ti. Better CPU and the GPU is 50% more performant than a 1650ti. Better bang for the buck.

I'm not too familiar with CAD tasks but from what I hear it benefits from GPU muscle so the 4gig of vram should keep things nice and dandy. I'm not too confident about how much the performance in CAD tasks scale to recommend an upgrade but found a 1660ti model for a great deal
