Deal | Lenovo IdeaPad 5 thin and light laptop with Zen 2 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 4700U APU and 256 GB SSD now available at new low price of US$599
There are some great deals to be had at the moment on Lenovo IdeaPad laptops powered by the Zen 2-based AMD Ryzen 7 4700U APU, which has base and boost clocks of 2.0 GHz and 4.1 GHz, respectively, while relying on an energy-efficient low TDP (15 W default, 10-25 W vendor configurable). Both Walmart and Lenovo are offering a considerable discount on the thin and light IdeaPad laptops, with Walmart selling the regular variant of the IdeaPad 5 and Lenovo promoting the Flex convertible model.
For US$599, shoppers at Walmart get the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 with the aforementioned Renoir mobile processor, 256 GB SSD, 8 GB RAM, and sporting a 14.0-inch FHD display. Features of the IdeaPad 5 laptop include a physical privacy shutter for the webcam, a 90% “active area ratio”, and 2x 2 W Dolby Audio speakers. However, this Ryzen 4000 laptop is only available in platinum grey and the sparse 8 GB of RAM is soldered. But the price tag for this device is usually US$799, so the sizable discount should help outweigh any cons.
Customers who want more flexibility with their Lenovo IdeaPad can pop over to the company’s official website and find the IdeaPad Flex 5 14 (AMD) available at a price of US$629.27. Lenovo advertises a web price of US$759.99 for the Ryzen 4000 convertible, but there is an exclusive price of US$683.99 in place and by using the eCoupon GREATIDEA that price gets knocked down to US$629.27. The 2-in-1 laptop features the same Ryzen 7 4700U, 256 GB SSD, and 8 GB RAM as the non-convertible SKU, but of course it can be utilized as a tablet thanks to its 360° hinge.
