Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 14 laptop review: A successful allrounder with an OLED display

The Arc 7's debut. After previously testing numerous laptops featuring Intel's brand-new Arc 8 iGPU, now it is the slightly slimmed-down Arc 7's turn. The IdeaPad Slim 5 will also be put up against laptops based on the Radeon 780M. Who will reign supreme?
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5

Users looking for a versatile, slim and lightweight laptop that offers decent power may well be happy with the IdeaPad Slim 5 14IMH9. For around US$1,000, the 14-inch device features a Core Ultra 5 125H, 16 GB LPDDR5x-7467 RAM (not expandable) and a 512-GB NVMe SSD. As a screen, the laptop uses a reflective 60-Hz 16:10 OLED display (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) which covers DCI-P3 in its entirety. Its Windows 11 Home operating system rounds out the package.

Case

The laptop's case looks pretty good. Beginning with its sleek design and compact footprint—although the competition offers similar values in these areas. Its moderate weight of 1.4 kg gives you no reason to complain, either, meaning you can still comfortably carry the 14-inch device about with you. Apart from some small details, its stability and build quality are good, too.

Its hinge is neither too loose nor too stiff; it is possible to open the device with one hand, although the base unit does tend to sometimes swing a little in doing so. Thanks to its relatively light color, fingerprint marks can hardly be seen. Its maximum opening angle is 160°.

Connectivity

Ports

There is still room for improvement when it comes to the device's ports. Although the 14-inch laptop features a total of four USB ports, even its two Type-C ports are only compliant with the 3.2 Gen 1 standard—although they do support DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 3.0. There is also an audio jack, an outdated HDMI 1.4b port and a microSD card reader. As the ports are located in the back half of the two side panels, so an external mouse can be used without (space) difficulties.

Communication

Webcam

Its webcam quality lies just above the—unfortunately miserable—laptop standard. The 2-MP model looks sharper than a lot of the competition, although it fails to deliver good color accuracy, as usual.

Accessories

Lenovo delivers the laptop alongside a few information manuals and a compact 65-watt power supply (USB C).

Maintenance

Its maintenance options strongly resemble those of the Yoga Pro 7. This means its bottom plate is held on by 6 Torx screws and several brackets. In contrast to its 14-inch brother, Lenovo hasn't implemented a dual-fan cooling unit—instead, it relies on one relatively large fan. The WLAN module and SSD are covered by a film. Unfortunately, the RAM is soldered on.

Warranty

The laptop is covered by a standard 12-month warranty.

Input devices

Keyboard

The same as on the Yoga Pro 7, the IdeaPad Slim 5's input devices are worthy of praise. Its keyboard boasts a good layout (apart from the small middle arrow keys) and the keys have a good size. It also feels better to type on this keyboard compared to most other manufacturers, although its key noise is quite loud for a classic rubber-dome model. Nighttime writing sessions are no problem thanks to its installed white backlighting.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5

Touchpad

Its touchpad is good, too—if you ignore the slightly rattly-sounding click areas. A size of 12 x 7.5 cm is respectable for a 14-inch device. In our test, it never had any issues with precision or gesture support. Its surface is quite smooth, meaning your fingers glide over it nicely.

Display

When it comes to OLED displays, tastes differ. If you want to spend a lot of time using your laptop in bright rooms or outdoors, then you would be better off looking for a device with a matte finish. Our test configuration's glare surface often causes very strong and unpleasant reflections.

Apart from this, the OLED screen is mostly a success. Thanks to its incredibly low black value (practically 0 cd/m²), the Slim 5 delivers amazing contrasts that conventional IPS panels can only dream of. Its viewing angles are impressive, too.

The same can be said for its response times, which even demanding users should be pleased with. Further highlights include its generous color space coverage (about 100 % of DCI-P3 and AdobeRGB) and its generally high color accuracy straight out of the box.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.6 ms rise
↘ 0.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.7 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 240 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 240 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 240 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17788 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The IdeaPad Slim 5 is a mid-range laptop. Users should carefully decide beforehand whether 16 GB RAM is enough in the long run, as it—as previously critiqued—cannot be swapped out. Its M.2 SSD (which is also only a 2242 model) could technically be swapped out for a larger 2280 model.

Processor

The Core Ultra 5 125H is the cheaper brother of the Core Ultra 7 155H within the Yoga 7 Pro and it can handle 18 parallel threads instead of 22. Its clock rate and cache (18 vs 24 MB) are also slightly lower. Even so, the Ultra 5 125H did quite well in our benchmark tests. Although this wasn't enough for it to reach the level of the Yoga Pro 7, other laptops based on 155H, such as the ZenBook 14 or the Spectre x360, couldn't outperform it in the Cinebench loop.

Storage devices

The laptop's storage device doesn't work totally optimally. According to our Loop test, longer periods of load lead to temporary drops in speed. In general, the M.2 drive made by SK Hynix offers more than decent performance which will likely be sufficient for most users.
