Reviews for the Lenovo IP 5 Chrome 16IAU7
Source: Trusted Reviews
As opposed to offering any extras such as a touchscreen or two-in-one functionality, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook serves up a conventional laptop experience with a lot to like about it. It’s a good looking machine, although it is quite heavy. On the plus side, the keyboard is fantastic, and the trackpad gives you a lot of room. Inside, the Intel Core i3-1215U packs a major punch, and makes the IdeaPad 5i Chromebook one of the nippiest performers for the price, while its combination of 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD give some great headroom for multi-tasking and storage respectively. The display on offer is largely okay if you’re after a big-screen Chromebook, but colours can look a little washed out and lack that punch you get from similarly priced alternatives such as the Acer Chromebook Spin 514. Recommending the IdeaPad 5i Chromebook is pretty easy if you’re after an all-round Chromebook that gets the basics right.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
