Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05

86% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 in review: A lot of computing power in a compact case | Notebookcheck
Lenovo's mobile 14-inch laptop scores points with a powerful APU, an NVMe SSD, and a successful keyboard (backlit). The battery life is very good too.
85% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE review (AMD Rzyen 5 4500U) – the almost perfect budget notebook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
For the most part, this Lenovo IdeaPad 5 feels and performs like a much more expensive product. It's a very quick little laptop, and also quiet and comfortable with daily use. It’s also well made, with the exception of that sensible metal lid, types well, and includes the IO and the battery life that I'd need while on the go. However, having used it for the last few weeks, I decided a 54% sRGB screen won't do for me and I'd rather pay extra for a better-quality panel. My entire experience with this notebook is documented down below.

14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.38 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


80.33%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
