Lenovo’s IdeaPad Flex 5 is a trendy 2-in-1 laptop worldwide, including India, and we were patiently waiting for the upgraded laptop with new AMD Ryzen 5000U mobile processors. So, finally, it has landed in India, and the variant with AMD Ryzen 7 5700U is already available for purchase!
Last time, Lenovo limited the laptop to only Ryzen 5 4500U; however, this time, it has brought the Ryzen 7 5700U variant already. So, essentially there’s no major overhaul on the design, display and even prime features of the laptop, just a hardware upgrade.
The specs the laptop offers in a small form factor makes it even more interesting and a good companion for all-day work and productivity with its great battery life.
So, the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 features AMD Ryzen 7 5700U sports 8 Zen 2 cores and 16 threads, comes with a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz and turbo up to 4.3 GHz across all 8 cores. It is a true monster consuming just 15W TDP, and it features 12MB total cache and has Vega 8 iGPU with 1900 MHz frequency that should help during professional work and low-to-medium end gaming.
Lenovo promises up to 7 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 52.5 Watt-Hours should give good battery life; it is paired with 16GB RAM DDR4-3200 RAM and 512 GB NVMe SSD.
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 14-inch 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.
