The 16-inch IdeaPad Pro 5i Gen 9 sports one of Intel's latest Core Ultra 9 processors as well as a dedicated RTX 4050 GPU and a good amount of memory, which turns the Lenovo laptop a noteworthy Apple MacBook Pro 16 alternative for multimedia users who prefer Windows.

A full-fledged gaming laptop such as the impressive Legion Pro 7 certainly has more than enough power for all kinds of multimedia applications. However, notebook users who don't plan to play any games should rather put their sights on a sleeker and more portable device such as the Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i, which even features a beautiful OLED display. 

Fittingly, a quite intriguing high-end version of the Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i Gen 9 has now gone on sale at B&H Photo Video. More specifically, the New York-based retailer is currently selling the OLED variant with the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 and soldered 32GB LPDDR5 memory for $1,549.

This Lenovo laptop deal offers a comparatively slim but certainly welcome discount of $151 relative to the official MSRP. For some reason, this particular RTX 4050 configuration of the IdeaPad Pro 5i OLED is not even available at Lenovo's official online store at the moment.

Anyhow, bargain hunters should check out our in-depth review before pulling the trigger on the IdeaPad Pro 5i. Please note that we tested an almost entirely different model of the 16-inch Lenovo laptop. Nonetheless, buyers can look forward to a decent selection of ports including Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.1.

Furthermore, the multimedia notebook comes with two M.2 slots, so adding a second storage module to the primary 1TB SSD is fairly easy. Last but not least, this SKU of the Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i Gen 9 features the 120Hz OLED touchscreen with a 2K resolution, 400 nits and 100% DCI-P3 colors. Overall, this well-equipped OLED laptop is well-suited for Windows users who are looking for a significantly cheaper 16-inch alternative to Apple's coveted MacBook Pro 16.
