I’ve been saving up for a laptop for a long time and decided I want something that will be powerful and reliable for also a long time if I’m spending this much. so the 2 best options seem to be the Slimbook Hero or the Legion 5.

A Legion 5 16IRX9 with an i5-13450HX is around 250EUR cheaper than a Hero with a i7-13620H, a Legion 5 Pro with a i7-13700HX is around 150EUR more expensive than the Hero. Legion has a 3 year warranty, the Hero 2 years.

I don’t know which has a better build quality and if warranty service is better with Slimbook bc you have to ship it to Spain if there is a hardware issue.
What else should I consider?

    Look up specifc Linux compatibility tests for the models, I vaguely remember seeing that at least some Legion versions have very bad compatibility.
