Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 12IAU7, i3-1215U

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Windows Duet 5i Review
Source: PC Mag English
All told, the Windows version of Lenovo's IdeaPad Duet 5i hits all of its marks and holds superior value compared to popular competitors. Microsoft's Surface Pro is the pace-setter in this category, with Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 following its lead. The Lenovo doesn't have quite the premium feel those detachables do, and its 128GB of storage and Core i3 processor might cramp your style (the storage especially). But its build quality is impressive, and its performance is a pleasant surprise for its price and what it includes. These reasonable concessions help keep the cost down, and they are not enough to keep it from earning our Editors' Choice for this tier. If you want a Windows tablet for grab-and-go productivity and entertainment, it fills a nifty niche between cheaper and more deluxe 2-in-1 laptops.

Intel UHD Graphics 64EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Alder Lake SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture (Xe) with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model.

12.40":

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.

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.


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
