Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05-82LM005XGE
Source: Ultrabook Review
With a proper screen, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 would punch way above its class. This a well built portable laptop able to keep silent and efficient with daily use, while also unleashing the full-potential of the Ryzen hardware in demanding loads, without overheating or running noisy. It's such a pity Lenovo still don't configure a 100% sRGB panel on this series; with the one on offer, only the budget lower-specced models of this laptop make sense to me, and less so the other models. Up to you, though, if you're willing to sacrifice on the display for everything else.

AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 2.100 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R7 5700U: A laptop-grade APU featuring eight SMT-enabled Zen 2 cores running at 1.8 GHz to 4.3 GHz and a Vega series graphics adapter with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1,900 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
