In constant growth in recent years, the Chinese brand Lenovo, which is found mainly in the world of assembled computers (portable or fixed) or tablets, has also been present for a few years now in the world of smartphones through its subsidiary Motorola and its famous Razr, which it bought from Google in 2014 for just under $ 3 billion.
Suffering from a bad image not always justified a few years ago, Lenovo has been able, little by little, to correct the situation by opening up its philosophy to the Western world and has since been perfectly able to win back, if not the heart, at least user confidence.
It must be said that Lenovo’s pricing policy is often very aggressive and in these times of shortages most of the towers fitted with RTX 3070s at decent prices came from their homes. The advantage of being able to negotiate parts directly from the factory, no doubt.
If you are looking for an affordable and ultra-light laptop PC, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 is only 499 € at Fnac instead of 779 € in normal times.
The number one argument of this ultraportable is its weight, with only 1.4 kg on the scale for 2.2 centimeters thick, he knows how to be forgotten. To achieve such a result, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 is equipped with a 14-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080p) LCD display, a 52 Wh battery which allows it to hold around 12 hours in “normal” use and that he benefits as a bonus from the Quick Charge 2.0 technology which allows it to recover 3 hours of autonomy in just 15 short minutes.
On the performance side, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 is equipped with a AMD Ryzen 5-5500U processor clocked at 2.1 GHz (and up to 4 GHz in Boost mode) coupled with 8 GB of RAM as well as 256 GB of internal memory via NVMe SSD. The graphic part is ensured by a Radeon Vega 7 chip, which, if it clearly cannot allow you to play CyberPunk 2077 thoroughly, will still provide the essentials for less greedy games.
Finally, a small point on the connection, we find here Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 6, USB 3.1, 3.2 type C ports, a MicroSD reader and of course an HDMI output to connect it to a larger monitor or a TV.
Normally sold for € 779.99 euros, the ultraportable Lenovo IdeaPad 5 is now offered by Fnac at € 499.99.
