First place among GeForce MX450 laptops

Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6 in review: 16-inch all-rounder with good battery life
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6 in review: 16-inch all-rounder with good battery life
Lenovo's slim all-rounder offers a well-rounded feature set: A Core i5 processor, the GeForce MX450 GPU, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), and an NVMe SSD. This is complemented by good battery life, and a 16-inch display (2560x1600, IPS, 120 Hz) in the 16:10 format.

With the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6, Lenovo delivers a 16-inch all-rounder that packs its technology into a sleek and slim aluminum case. The color used here has been named "Cloud Gray" - a light silver-gray. The laptop has a total weight of 1.9 kg.

Our configuration variant is equipped for office and Internet use as well as gaming in HD resolution thanks to the Core i5-11300H processor and the GeForce MX450 graphics core. 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), and a 1 TB NVMe SSD are an adequate storage configuration. Replacing the SSD is possible, but expanding RAM is not. Memory is soldered, and there are no memory slots available.

The IdeaPad takes the first place among the MX450 laptops that we have tested so far, and it almost consistently delivers the best GPU benchmark results and the best frame rates that we have been able to measure with this GPU to date. This is largely due to the GDDR6 memory that supports the GPU.

The 16-inch display (2560x1600 pixels, 120 Hz, IPS) in the 16:10 format scores points with a matte surface, stable viewing angles, good color reproduction, and good color-space coverage. The brightness and contrast meet their respective targets. Moreover, a 75 Wh battery provides real-world runtimes of 9 to 10 hours. The included USB-C power adapter (95 watts) can be plugged into both USB-C ports (Thunderbolt 4/USB 4, USB 2.0).

Further information and many benchmark results are available in our review of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
