The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 review part 1 – introduction

Lenovo’s ‘Flex’ series of laptops are moderate 2-in-1 convertible systems that offer asserted all-day battery life. That is a simple and engaging proposition.

Practically speaking, it’s each of the bit more muddled. The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, to give it its complete name, is accessible in both 14-inch and 15-inch variants and with both AMD and Intel CPUs. Also, with various iterations of those CPUs.

It’s each of the bit bewildering in case you’re purchasing, however the specific model showcased here is the 15-inch Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 fueled by Intel’s latest tenth Gen processors, in this case an Intel Core i3-1005G1 chip.

Apparently, AMD’s PC CPUs offer both better worth and more performance at this moment. In any case, given the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 remains truly acutely estimated and isn’t being pitched basically on performance, that needn’t be a programmed major issue.

In reality, this PC offers an exceptionally convincing all-round proposition. Alongside that Intel CPU, the highlights kick off with a 15.6-inch touchscreen. It offers a FullHD 1,920 by 1,080 pixels resolution and IPS board innovation. As a ‘Flex’ model, that screen is snared to the IdeaPad’s chassis by means of an entire 360-degree pivot and thus supports activity in full Tablet mode. Next up is a 128GB SSD. Alright, that is not an enormous measure of storage, but rather it is a M.2 drive supporting the latest NVMe control convention.

Different details incorporate a nice 65-watt charger and guaranteed battery life of more than 10 hours. That you get this in an alluring chassis with an excellent vibe from perhaps the biggest brand in the business for around $500/£500 is impressive. Yet, unavoidably, it’s not the entire story.

At this value point something definitely has to give and as assessed the most obvious weakness is the small 4GB of RAM. It doesn’t have huge affection on your benchmark numbers. Yet, in case you’re fractional, say, to running loads of browser tabs while you alter images – or some other average multitasking scenario – you’ll immediately run out of system memory with just 4GB at your disposal, especially as some of that is squeezed by the incorporated graphics.

What is your reaction?
