83% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15IIL05 Review: Good performance and a long battery life - thanks to the 70-Wh battery | Notebookcheck
Lenovo's 15.6-inch laptop offers an Ice Lake Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM (dual channel mode) and a GeForce-MX350 GPU. Despite this powerful hardware, the IdeaPad's battery life is very satisfactory.
Lenovo Ideapad 5 (15) review – the GeForce MX350 brings the low-voltage gaming to a new level
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
So, if you guys are looking to buy this device, tell us what you think about it? In our view, it is not yet worth the upgrade over the Ideapad S540, unless you get the IPS panel, max out the memory and the actual battery life is miles ahead. And of course, you wish to play games. Yes, the MX350 is a substantial upgrade over the MX250.

86% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 in review: A lot of computing power in a compact case | Notebookcheck

85% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE review (AMD Rzyen 5 4500U) – the almost perfect budget notebook
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
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.

Lenovo Ideapad 5 (14) review – one of the best affordable ultrabooks you can get
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
To sum up, what we’ve seen today, let’s start with the processor. Obviously, the Ryzen 4000U CPUs, or Renoir as AMD calls them, are very capable little devices. And what can show it better than their lowest tier processor – the Ryzen 3 4300U? Having four cores without multithreading, it should have been in the range of performance of the Core i3-10110U. However, this is an extremely potent sucker, delivering something that only a tight group of laptops equipped with at least the Core i5-10210U can reach.

85% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05 review (AMD Rzyen 7 5700U)– budget ultrabook, updated
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

Overall, Lenovo used some great parts for constructing the IdeaPad 5i Chromebook, including the internals, but I can’t get past the price. If the price were dropped down by, say $50 with Intel’s 11th Gen i3 processor, I’d recommend this Chromebook to those who need something at a reasonable price.

78% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Gaming Chromebook review: Packing a cloud gaming punch
Source: PC World English
The IdeaPad 5 Gaming Chromebook is a solid entry into the Chromebook arena for both cloud and day-to-day productivity. It has a bright, sharp display, good performance, great network connectivity, tons of ports, and long battery life. Lenovo’s design is a whiff, though, and that’s a wrinkle. The Acer Chromebook 516 GE, an alternative gaming-focused Chromebook with a 16-inch display, offers everything found in the Lenovo alongside a more attractive and luxurious chassis. Acer also provides a slightly quicker Intel Core i5-1240P processor. That makes the Lenovo tough to recommend, especially when the Acer is on sale (it’s currently available for $549.99 at Best Buy). I recommend the Acer if it’s the same price as the Lenovo, or less—but the IdeaPad 5 Gaming Chromebook is a fine second choice.

Lenovo IdeaPad 5 (15″, 2022) review
Source: Laptop Media English
Okay, let’s say that you have around $700-800 in your bank account, which is not allocated for bills, food, or strippers. And you desperately need a new laptop, which you’re going to use as a daily driver, and a workhorse. What should you do? Well, if you are into games, you can check out the IdeaPad Gaming 3 (15″, 2022), or the Nitro 5 (AN515-58). But if you don’t need a gaming machine, and even prefer something that comes in a stylish outfit, features a rigid construction, and feels premium, then the IdeaPad 5 (15″, 2022) might be the device for you. Yes, there are a couple of additional features, which will be pretty convincing – like the Full HD Web camera with a privacy shutter, or the optional fingerprint reader, embedded in the power button. However, the one that makes the choice is you. If decide to get the IdeaPad 5 (15″, 2022), make sure you get the 16GB model, as you will probably struggle with 8GB in the future.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G1: A low-power, Ice Lake family processor (SoC) featuring 4 cores, 8 threads, 6 MB of L3 cache and the UHD G1 (32 EUs) iGPU. This Core i5 saw the light of day in H2 2019; it is designed for use in highly portable consumer laptops. The CPU cores run at 1.0 GHz to 3.6 GHz. The Sunny Cove microarchitecture that is in use here is notable for several improvements over Skylake including support for new technologies, new instruction sets and fast LPDDR4-3733 RAM. There is no PCIe 4 support here, however.

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R5 4500U: An upper mid-range, hexa-core APU designed for use in thinner, lighter laptops. The Ryzen features Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.3 GHz to 4.0 GHz along with the Vega 6 graphics adapter (6 x 64 = 384 unified shaders). The thread-doubling SMT technology is not enabled in the case of Ryzen 5 4500U.

R7 4700U: A mobile Octa-Core APU with Zen 2 cores clocked at 2 to 4.1 GHz and a Vega graphics adapter with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1600 MHz. Compared to the faster 4800U, the 4700U offers a slightly lower boost clock speed and does not support SMT.

R3 4300U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using four Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.7 GHz and a Vega graphics adapter with 5 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

Intel Tiger Lake:

i5-1135G7: A quad-core, mid-range processor of Tiger Lake product family designed for use in ultra-light laptops. The i5 is manufactured on Intel's second-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin and features an 80 EU Iris Xe G7 iGPU. Core i5-1135G7 has a base clock speed of 2.4 GHz as long as it is allowed to consume 28 watts.

i7-1165G7: An upper mid-range, quad-core processor of Tiger Lake product family. The i7 is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops; it is manufactured on Intel's third-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). This i7 features the 96 EU Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU; it was the second-fastest CPU of TGL-UP3 line-up when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.

Pentium 7505: An energy-efficient dual-core processor of the Tiger Lake product family designed for thin and light laptops. The Pentium is produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process. The two CPU cores run at 2 GHz to 3.5 GHz.

AMD Lucienne (Zen 2, Ryzen 5000):

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
