Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05
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.

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.
