Lenovo has launched its one of the best laptops in India on this Prime day and the new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 or just Flex 5 in other countries is a beast at the price which it is offered. A 2-in-1 laptop with the latest and the best AMD Ryzen 4000U APUs makes it even more special, and it costs lesser than any 2-in-1s out there even though it has a powerful APU in it.
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 laptop is the best-selling 2-in-1 laptop in the US already and want to know why this laptop is soo good? Here are the specs and the 5 reasons to buy it:
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 features the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U which comes with 6 Zen 2 cores running at 2.3 GHz base clock speed and up to 4.0 GHz boost clock speed. It is coupled with 8 GB DDR4 RAM & 256 GB SSD storage.
Lenovo promises up to 10 hours of battery life along with quick charge support that can charge up to 80% in just 1 hour with the 65W adapter, which indeed is great for a budget notebook.
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 2-in-1 Laptop features a 10-point, 14-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS touchscreen with narrow bezels on 4 sides of the display gives you more viewing area and less clutter to interfere with the task at hand. Also, note that the laptop comes with just 250 nits of peak brightness.
The laptop is thin & light weighing just 1.6 Kg and AMD Radeon Vega 6 graphics with 6 CUs and 1500 MHz graphics frequency make it ideal for productivity purposes as well as gaming. Its 360° hinge lets you use your 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop in whatever mode works best for you.
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 features 2 x 2 W Speakers, with Dolby Audio support and includes a physical privacy shutter on the HD 720p camera with Fixed-Focus CMOS. For connectivity, you have 2×2 Wi-Fi 5 (802.11 ac) and Bluetooth 4.2 options, for ports we have 2 USB-A, 1 USB Type-C, and an HDMI port.
5 reasons to buy the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 2-in-1 laptop:
- Performance – This laptop houses the most powerful budget APU currently, the 6 core, 6 threaded Ryzen 5 4500U which performs even better than any Intel Ice or Comet Lake CPUs. If Intel ones still deliver better or almost similar single-core performance, the Ryzen 5 4500U just makes every Intel CPU shy even though it’s still a budget APU. Being coupled with 8GB RAM is a major boost for this laptop and the price-to-performance ratio of this laptop is unmatched.
- Productivity – Being a proper 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop helps this laptop in a lot of perspectives as it’s not only portable being very light and having a touchscreen it helps to do anything you want to be it watching movies, writing notes or just casual work-related stuff, this is an allrounder at budget.
- Battery Life – On any budget laptop, most brands neglect this part completely but here even though it houses a 6-core CPU but thanks to AMD’s 7nm efficiency, the laptop still is able to deliver around 10 hours of battery life which has lasted for 7-8 hours for most reviewers out there, still good enough for a budget laptop. It also has quick charge support that can charge up to 80% in just 1 hour.
- Price – Yes, price is a big factor for choosing this laptop because at this price you do not get a laptop with such great APU with strong integrated graphics and the fact that it also a 2-in-1 laptop makes the deal even sweeter. There a lot of laptops or say premium ultrabooks that cannot deliver such performance at the price its available at.
- Other minor things – Even though it has a plastic body it still looks and feels good, the keyboard is still very decent for a budget laptop and it still has backlit one as well. It comes with a Lenovo Active Pen included which makes things easier and helps in your daily life as well, it has a privacy shutter on the webcam for security along with a physical fingerprint reader. The front-firing speakers and the touchpad are also good enough in daily usage.
Obviously, nothing is perfect, this is still a laptop out of plastic, lacks Wi-Fi 6 or Thunderbolt port, it doesn’t have the most color-accurate display but still is worthwhile for the price. This laptop is ideal for a lot of students who need a good laptop at a budget or just another 2-in-1 for everyday use, or just another laptop for even compiling codes or doing browsing sessions, playing casual games.
The ₹ 58,990 price point is what makes the new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 is a great option and if you still want to know more about it check this review:
