The Chinese manufacturer's updated IdeaPad 5 family adopts all modern processors that support Windows 10, giving users maximum flexibility
The CES 2021 exhibition is already here, and includes dozens of new mobile models that will flood the stores in the coming months. It will not be difficult to select the favorites from the entire offer, but we are here to gather the information about the most prominent and interesting of them all - such as the new intermediate series in the old IdeaPad brand of Lenovo Which will provide much more extensive choices than ever before.
The IdeaPad 5 Pro will be offered with a 14-inch screen or a 16-inch screen (which is beginning to gain momentum in its journey towards replacing the old 15.6-inch models) - and with the new Ryzen 5000 processors that have not yet been officially unveiled, When our hope is that we will see here the Cezanne versions with cores Zen 3 powerful, and not just the Lucienne versions that will continue to be based on cores Zen 2.
In the 14-inch version, with a full metal body weighing 1.45 kilograms, it will be possible to get an IPS panel with an average brightness of 400 nits, a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a display resolution of 2,880 × 1,800 pixels with a aspect ratio of 16:10, DDR4 memory Up to 16GB, a fast NVMe drive of up to one terabyte, a built-in 56.5 watt-hour battery with fast USB-PD 3.0 charging and the option to combine with its GeForce MX450 graphics card has the potential to significantly improve the built-in Vega cores of AMD - Assuming that Lenovo will indeed combine here the versions with the generous power envelopes, and not the base version with the 12 watt power envelope which "suffocates" the potential of the core.
The 16-inch version will feature an IPS panel with an average brightness of 350 nits, a slightly more modest display resolution of 2,560 × 1,600 pixels at the same modern aspect ratio and a welcome refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, plus DDR4 memory of up to 32GB, Up to one terabyte NVMe drive, 75 watt-hour battery with fast charging and triple option with new generation laptop cards NVIDIA - All of these in a metal shell with a weight of 2 kilograms that will be marketed in a silver or gray shade.
A worthy cover in two shades of your choice - even for the versions that are based on the best ofAMD And also for the versions that are based on the best of Intel
Those who prefer an Intel processor within your next system will be able to go for the IdeaPad 5i Pro models, with the same handsome and advanced IPS screens in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes as in the IdeaPad 5 Pro models with processors AMD, Memory DDR4 Up to 16GB and up to terabyte NVMe drive in both cases, option to combine with GeForce MX450 card in both cases, 56.5 watt-hour and 75-watt-hour batteries respectively - and the latest Tiger Lake processors (in 14-inch U configuration) And in the H configuration with the increased power in 16-inch models), which will allow the enlarged 16-inch version to enjoy, among other things, support forThunderbolt 4 which is not available in the other models.
Those who prefer to stay away from the mainstream and opt for maximum battery life in the smallest dimensions will be able to squint at the IdeaPad 5G and IdeaPad 4G - simple names for mobiles based on Qualcomm's unique octagonal Snapdragon 8cx chip and Windows 10 (Home version or Pro version) adapted Based on the architectureARM.
These two sub-versions will offer a completely identical look and specification, except for the ability to support new generation networks thanks to the modem Snapdragon Built-in X55 or the ability to support older cellular data networks in countries that have not yet joined the 5G circuit - with a 14-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1,920 × 1,080 pixels characterized by 100 percent coverage of the sRGB standard and an average brightness of 300 nits, 4GB LPDDR8X memory, storage 256GB or 512GB internal NVM, 2 watt front stereo speakers each, dual channel 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and a 51 watt-hour battery that will provide up to 20 hours of playback Video Under optimal conditions. Not bad for a product that weighs less than 1.17 pounds.
Lenovo plans to bring the IdeaPad 5 Pro and IdeaPad 5i Pro models to European countries (and probably Israel as well?) In March, with a recommended starting price tag of 700 euros including tax for models with Intel processors and a starting price tag of 800 euros for models with Labs' labs. AMD. IdeaPad models 5G And IdeaPad 4G compared will be available for purchase starting in May - when the list of countries where they can be found and the prices have not yet been revealed to us.
