Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14IIL05-81X1001BGE

Lenovo Flex 5 14" 2-in-1 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, an affordable 14” Windows 2-in-1 convertible laptop with 360 degree hinges, a full HD IPS touch screen and Wacom AES active pen support. The Lenovo has an Intel 10th gen Core i5 CPU with UHD graphics, 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD for $650. It has good build quality, a fingerprint scanner, webcam with privacy shutter, MS Precision trackpad and a backlit keyboard. Not bad for the price!

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (14) review – the optional GeForce MX330 has its perks and drawbacks
Source: Laptop Media English
So, the Intel version of this laptop is having a lot of struggles. The most prominent one comes from the cooling solution – especially when you have the GeForce MX330 onboard. During gaming (and with the “Extreme performance” profile applied) we saw the temperatures to not only creep up but maintain at 93C on the GPU and 97C on the processor. And if you choose the more forgiving “Intelligent cooling” profile, you end up losing performance. By the way, introducing a cooling pad drastically improves the thermals of the notebooks, as it appears that the design of the device is not optimized for airflow. So, at the end of the day, it might just be a better choice to pick the Intel Core i7-1065G7 only with its integrated graphics. Or just go for the AMD options, as they will provide a lot more headroom for productivity.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce MX330: Successor of the MX230 and most likely a renamed GeForce MX250/MX150 based on the Pascal GP108 chip with 384 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

i5-1035G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a Intel UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14":

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.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
