Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ALC05 82HU002YUS
As if the mobile Ryzen 4000 series wasn't already impressive, the mobile Ryzen 5000 series kicks it up another notch for even higher performance-per-dollar to outclass every other 14-inch convertible currently available.

With the AMD Ryzen 5000 hardware inside, the Flex 5 is one of the most powerful 14-inch budget laptops you can get right now. It's also a convertible and doesn't compromise on the build quality, inputs, audio, IO, or battery life, but it does come with one major deal-breaker: a dim and washed-out display with a 60% sRGB panel. That's just not for me and I'd rather pay extra or even sacrifice on the performance just to get a usable display instead. You, however, might feel otherwise, and if that's the case, you'll hardly find a better value laptop in this class. My entire experience with this notebook is documented down below.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
