Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 16ABR G8, R5 7530U
Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 16ABR G8, R5 7530U
Source: Laptop Media
If you are looking to buy a big 2-in-1 laptop without breaking the bank, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 (16″ AMD, Gen 8) should be on your shortlist. The notebook offers a good bang for the buck. It has a big IPS 16:10 touch display (LEN160WUXGA (LEN8156)) with comfortable viewing angles and a good contrast ratio. Still, the sRGB color coverage is low but that’s okay because this machine isn’t meant for content creation or other color-sensitive work. The optional stylus works really well, the gliding is smooth, and the unit is cozy for work because of its thick diameter. The performance is up to the standard because of the refreshed AMD Zen 3+ CPU of our machine and the good cooling system. The latter has just two heat pipes and one cooling fan that is unusually (near) quiet even during long periods of 100% CPU stress.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
