The Lenovo L340 i5 hits all the right boxes to be the best laptop for Roblox. Its GPU is well above recommended specifications, as is the CPU. In fact, the CPU and GPU combo not only allow you to play Roblox smoothly, but also on a budget and even opens doors to play other great titles. Read on to see how it stacks up against some of the best gaming laptops.

Why We Like It – Lenovo L340 i5

Featuring a 9th Gen Intel Core i5 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650, the Lenovo L340 i5 is well above the required specs to play Roblox, while also being a great entry-level, budget gaming laptop.

  • Fast, 9th Gen Intel CPU
  • 9-hour battery life
  • Has specs to play other titles, aside from Roblox
  • Needs a bigger hard drive
  • Needs another stick of RAM

Power & Performance

Crack open the chassis (figuratively, of course) and you’ll find the Lenovo L340 i5 is fitted with a mid-range GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. That’s a whole step above the Asus FX504’s GTX 1050. The GPU has 4GB of VRAM to play with before eating into your 8GB of DDR4 RAM. The CPU is a 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9300H, with a base 2.40GHz frequency and overclock rating of 4.10Ghz. This translates to frames reaching far above 100+, even with settings on ultra-high. If you like laptops with high refresh rates, take a look at our Lenovo Legion Gaming Laptop review.


Where many top-tier gaming laptops are riding the line on battery life, the Lenovo L340 i5 isn’t a battery hog. With the necessary features enabled and non-essentials disabled, you can get a healthy 9 hours.

Ports & Expandability

Both the SSD and RAM can be expanded upon, which is a huge plus. You get the most basic of ports, such as : one USB Type-C, Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, audio jack, and USB 3.1.

Build Quality

Hard plastic surrounds the full HD 15.6-inch screen size. It isn’t as stylish and strong as the military-grade magnesium alloy of the Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim, but it’s fair and keeps the cost low.


Picking up a Lenovo Ideapad L340 puts you (or your child) well above the recommended specifications to run Roblox on the highest settings with insanely high frame rates. And $729 is a great price compared to an inferior, overpriced Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Gaming Laptop. It leaves room to expand on both the RAM and SSD, both of which are a bit tight.

Lenovo L340 i5 Wrap Up

Considering price, budget, and goal, the Lenovo L340 i5 hits all the right marks to be you or your child’s first gaming laptop for Roblox. It not only sets them up to play Roblox at the highest settings, it also opens the door to play titles like Valorant and League of Legends. And since it’s so affordable, it won’t hurt to fit it with more storage and another 4-8GB of RAM.
