Deal | Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro on sale for $699 USD with Windows 11, Ryzen 5 5600U CPU, 16 GB RAM, and 16:10 QHD touchscreen ↺
Costco is currently hosting a sale on the 14-inch Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro for $200 USD off the original launch price of $900. The deal is notable for its impressive specifications relative to the sale price.
Core specifications include the hexa-core Ryzen 5 5600U and high quality 16:10 2440 x 1400 IPS touchscreen with full sRGB coverage. This particular AMD CPU is roughly comparable to Intel's 11th gen Core i7 U-series while the display can easily outclass most any other IPS display in its price range where sRGB coverage and QHD native resolutions are uncommon.
Disadvantages to watch out for would be the keyboard and clickpad which are traditionally spongier and shallower than on the pricier ThinkPad series. The system also lacks support for Thunderbolt 4 since mobile AMD CPUs have yet to natively support the standard unlike with Intel. Though we've yet to personally review this exact model, the IdeaPad 5 Pro has many similarities to last year's IdeaPad 5 14 nonetheless.
