Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6 in review: 16-inch all-rounder with good battery life

High-end MX450. Lenovo's 16-inch all-rounder delivers more than enough computing power for office and Internet applications. It also brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the 16:10 screen - at least in HD resolution. The Tiger Lake processor and GeForce MX450 GPU make this possible.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 ...

With the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16IHU6, Lenovo has a stylish all-rounder in its lineup that is powered by a Core i5-11300H processor and a GeForce MX450 GPU. One of the laptop's highlights is its 16-inch display in the 16:10 format. Competitors include devices like the Xiaomi RedmiBook Pro 15, the Huawei MateBook D 16, and the HP Pavilion 15.

Case - The IdeaPad 5 comes with a slim aluminum case

The IdeaPad's slim aluminum case comes in a matte, silver-gray color (Cloud Gray). The display bezel is black. Lenovo has opted for a stylish, no-frills design with smooth surfaces. The laptop doesn't have a maintenance hatch, and the battery is firmly built into the device.

The 16-incher shows a good build quality. The gap dimensions are accurate, and there are no material protrusions. Rigidity and stability leave no room for criticism. The lid and base unit can be twisted a bit, but the whole situation still remains within limits. The hinges hold the lid firmly in position, but they allow it to wobble a bit. The maximum aperture angle is about 155 degrees. Moreover, opening the lid with one hand is possible.

Despite the different display formats and sizes, the devices in our comparison field don't differ too much in terms of dimensions. The IdeaPad weighs about 1.9 kg, a good 200 grams more than the competition.

Connectivity - Lenovo's 16-incher comes with Thunderbolt 4

Lenovo equips the IdeaPad with two USB-A slots (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and two USB-C slots (1x Thunderbolt 4/USB 4.0, 1x USB 2.0). The included power adapter can be connected to both USB-C ports; the USB-C 2.0 port has been primarily intended for this by Lenovo. As a result, the Thunderbolt 4 slot remains available for other things (docking station, external GPU). The latter supports DisplayPort via USB-C. Along with the HDMI output, there are consequently 2 video outputs.

The ports are located in the rear areas of both sides. The space next to the palm rest remains free of cables. It would've been ideal if Lenovo had placed one USB-C and one USB-A port, respectively, on each side of the device.

SD card reader

With transfer rates of 90.6 MB/s (copying large data blocks), the memory card reader (reference card: AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60) is among the fastest models. A comparison with the rates of the Dell XPS 15 makes it clear that much more would be possible. Moreover, the reader doesn't accommodate SD cards completely. They protrude a good 17 mm.

Communication

The WLAN chip (Intel AX201) supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards and offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. In addition, the data rates determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC; router: Netgear Nighthawk AX12) are very good.

Webcam

In terms of quality, the webcam (0.9 MP, max. 1280x720 pixels) in the Lenovo laptop isn't able to stand out from the cameras of the contenders. Things are better when it comes to color accuracy: With a deviation of around 8, the target (DeltaE less than 3) is clearly missed, but the competition is (narrowly) beaten.

Accessories

The usual documents are included with the laptop: A quick-start guide and warranty information.

Maintenance

The hardware can be accessed after removing the bottom cover. All screws on the underside of the device have to be removed for this purpose. Afterwards, the bottom cover can be lifted off with the help of a flat spatula or a joint smoother. You can then access the SSD, the WLAN module, the BIOS battery, the battery, and the fans. The RAM is firmly soldered.

Warranty

Lenovo grants the 14-incher a two-year warranty in Germany. Furthermore, warranty extensions are available. For example, a four-year on-site warranty costs about 121 Euros (~$142).

Input devices - The Lenovo laptop has a backlit keyboard

Keyboard

Lenovo equips the IdeaPad with a backlit chiclet keyboard (including a number pad). The smooth, flat keys have a short travel and a clear stroke. The resistance provided by the keys is pleasing. Moreover, the keyboard yields a bit during typing. It didn't prove to be bothersome, though. The two-stage backlight is controlled via a function key. All in all, Lenovo delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use. 

Touchpad

A multitouch-capable ClickPad (about 12 x 7.5 cm) serves as mouse replacement. The smooth surface makes it easy for fingers to glide on it. The pad also responds to inputs in the corners. It has a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - IPS in the 16:10 format

The IdeaPad Pro is equipped with a matte 16-inch display (2560x1600 pixels) in a 16:10 format. The brightness (321.6 cd/m²) and contrast (1,319:1) are good. In addition, the 120 Hz panel delivers fast response times. No PWM flickering could be detected.

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, the display shows a good color reproduction and meets the target with a color deviation of 2.4 (Delta E less than 3). It doesn't suffer from a blue tint, either. The sRGB color space is covered by 99%. The AdobeRGB (75%) and DCI-P3 (74%) color spaces can't be fully reproduced by the display.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
13 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Reading the display outdoors is possible when the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Test conditions

The laptop offers three performance profiles ("Intelligent Cooling", "High Performance", "Battery Saving Mode"), which can be switched between via the key combination "Fn" + "Q". We used the "Intelligent Cooling" profile. In addition, we ran some benchmarks with the "High Performance" and "Battery Saving" profiles active. The results can be found in the comparison tables.

Battery Saving Mode Intelligent Cooling High Performance
PL1 12 watts 40 watts 45 watts
PL2 20 watts 64 watts 64 watts

Processor

The Core i5-11300H quad-core processor (Tiger Lake) runs at a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz. An increase to 4 GHz (four cores) or 4.4 GHz (one core) is possible via Turbo. Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark is processed at 4 GHz, and the single-thread test at 2.2 to 4.4 GHz. The clock rates are lower on battery power.

Multithread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)

We verify if the CPU Turbo is also consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. Turbo is used to a small extent. Moreover, the High Performance profile leads to a slight increase in clock speeds.

The Battery Saving profile allows the CPU to run at speeds well below the base clock rate for a prolonged period of time. Nonetheless, the available processing power is more than sufficient for office and Internet use. Furthermore, the profile has a positive effect on noise and heat development as well as on battery life.

DPC latencies

The standardized latency monitor test (web browsing, 4K video playback, high-load Prime95) didn't reveal any irregularities in DPC latencies. The system seems to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing. This conclusion is based on our test device running the latest software available at the time of testing. Future updates could lead to improvements or even to worse results.

Graphics card

The dedicated GeForce MX450 graphics core is Nvidia's latest mid-range model. The GPU is based on the same Turing chip as the GeForce GTX 1650 graphics core. Nvidia has four variants of the MX450 in its portfolio. The IdeaPad is equipped with variant 2.

GPU clock rate Memory Memory clock rate Memory interface TGP
Variant 1 1,395 - 1,575 MHz GDDR6 5,001 MHz 128 Bit 28.5 watts
Variant 2 1,395 - 1,575 MHz GDDR6 5,001 MHz 64 Bit 25 watts
Variant 3 1,395 - 1,575 MHz GDDR5 3,501 MHz 64 Bit 25 watts
Variant 4 720 - 930 MHz GDDR6 5,001 MHz 64 Bit 12 watts

The 16-incher delivers the best 3DMark results that we have been able to determine with the MX450 so far. The GDDR6 graphics memory (2,048 MB) is probably responsible for this. The 25-watt MX450 GPUs that we have seen so far were usually "only" equipped with slower GDDR5 memory. Furthermore, the integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 80EUs GPU is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution.

Gaming performance

Most games in our database achieve playable frame rates at HD resolution and low to medium quality levels. Titles with moderate hardware requirements allow the selection of higher settings. The IdeaPad also takes the top spot among the MX450 laptops tested so far when it comes to gaming, and it delivers the best frame rates almost throughout. In addition, the High Performance profile sometimes leads to a small increase in frame rates.
