With a slim and light silver aluminum Storm Gray design, this versatile laptop computer has a sober and elegant look.
It has good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote communication and connectivity, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example a headphone/Microphone combo audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees up to 10 times faster transfers . USB 2.0 when connected to a USB 3.0 peripheral.
You can authenticate yourself biometrically with facial recognition using Windows Hello technology and a webcam with Infrared technology.
Of course, it is also possible to backlit the keys of the chiclet keyboard to make them stand out better in low-light environments.
Thanks to sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen offers better-than-average colorimetry with significant viewing angles both horizontally and vertically. High Definition enthusiasts will be pleased that the screen accepts a 2.5K image, which is superior to Full HD, while its anti-reflective treatment makes it look better than a glossy panel in a bright environment (such as outdoors).
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82L500E8FR) performance, battery life
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82L500E8FR) may be of interest to those looking for a powerful yet thin, light and portable laptop.
Its thinness and sub-2 Kg bar weight make it easy to carry, while its 16-inch format isn’t the most portable format out there, and is particularly comfortable for mostly sedentary use (ie: at home).
Either way, those who want to use their computer wirelessly for a few hours will be happy that this computer can last around 7 hours on the battery with light use.
It ignores the dedicated graphics card to do this.
So, all graphics here are handled by Radeon Vega 8, a graphics solution integrated directly into the processor. And thanks to it, we can view photos and videos, as well as play light titles.
The Radeon Vega 8 is directly connected to one of the most powerful mobile processors currently, the AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Generation Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne, with 16 GB of RAM to provide the overall power to attract even the most demanding users.
This core guarantees faster operation compared to the Quad/Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference is especially noticeable during work that consumes CPU and RAM resources using multicores, such as in photo or video editing.
On the storage side, there’s obviously an SSD, as it’s more energy efficient than a hard drive, while also being more shock-resistant, quieter, and faster.
In practice, an SSD provides better responsiveness and fluidity than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we get faster multimedia processing, especially starting / pausing and launching software, and even faster access to online games cards.
The 512GB capacity of the SSD integrated here is in line with what hard drives offer as standard.
However, if more space is needed, an external storage device can be used. Choosing a USB 3.0 / USB-C device is an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, note that under severe stress (for example: treatments), this multifunction laptop computer can hear and heat up.
If necessary, a ventilated stand can be used to limit the temperature (Don’t forget to check the measurements carefully!).
