The CPU provides more than enough performance for office and Internet applications. The dedicated graphics core makes it possible to play computer games. This is accompanied by good PCMark results. Expanding the memory is not possible. The standardized latency monitor test web browsing, 4K video playback, high-load Prime95 didn't reveal any irregularities in DPC latencies. The system seems to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing. This conclusion is based on our test device running the latest software available at the time of testing.
Future updates could lead to improvements or even to worse results. It has a storage capacity of GB and delivers very good transfer rates. Nvidia has four variants of the MX in its portfolio. The IdeaPad is equipped with variant 2. The incher delivers the best 3DMark results that we have been able to determine with the MX so far.
Most games in our database achieve playable frame rates at HD resolution and low to medium quality levels. Titles with moderate hardware requirements allow the selection of higher settings. The IdeaPad also takes the top spot among the MX laptops tested so far when it comes to gaming, and it delivers the best frame rates almost throughout.
In addition, the High Performance profile sometimes leads to a small increase in frame rates. In order to verify whether the frame rates remain largely constant over a prolonged period of time, we let the game The Witcher 3 run for about 60 minutes at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings. The character is not moved. A drop in frame rates wasn't found. Lenovo's inch all-rounder delivers more than enough computing power for office and Internet applications. It also brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen - at least in HD resolution.

For everyday use and multitasking, the Ryzen 5 configuration should do just fine. Demanding games are a challenge for this sort of hardware.
The Ryzen hardware runs somewhere in the W of power between the tested titles, with the GPU maintaining its maximum clock of 1. Lifting up the back of the laptop from the desk in order to improve the airflow into the fans helps shed between 1 and 5 degrees of the components.
Expect an even greater impact on the configurations with a dGPU. You could also opt to run games on the Intelligent Cooling mode, which slightly lowers the fan noise with barely any impact on the temperatures and performance. As a result, both the internal and the external temperatures are excellent on this configuration, with low noise levels in most loads.
The fans are not noticeably choked on this Ryzen 5 configuration, with the laptop sitting on a desk. However, that will most likely change with the dGPU configurations, where the thermal module would need to cope with a higher combined power envelope and higher internal temperatures. As far as the noise goes, with demanding combined loads games, video editing, etc the fans spin at dB at head-level on the Extreme Performance profile and between dB on Intelligent Cooling.
Back to our unit, the fans run quieter with general use and multitasking, normally at under 32 dB on both profiles. Furthermore, they shut off entirely with video streaming and light use, allowing for a silent experience. It performed well with our setup and the signal and performance remained strong at feet from the router, with obstacles in between. The audio is handled by a set of stereo speakers that fire through grills on the underside.
These speakers are my number one nit with this series. Not this one, though. IR support for Windows Hello is included as well. The screen runs at Hz all the time, though, which slightly impacts the runtimes. A full charge takes about 2. The same starts at EUR in Germany, but comes with Windows preinstalled, while over here it does not. You can find it from various other stores, though, such as BestBuy, Microsoft Store, Amazon, or other local venues, so follow this link for updated prices and configurations in your region.
As an all-around full-size laptop for daily use and multitasking, the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16 is unbeatable over here in Europe at the current price levels. This ticks important boxes such as the sturdy build quality and clean design, the versatile high-resolution screen, the complete IO, the competent specs and thermal design, and the long battery life, only skimping on audio quality and inputs to some degree. You are significantly sacrificing the GPU and gaming performance this way, though. Up to you.
All struggle to match the overall value per money of this inch IdeaPad Pro series, though. In my country Ideapad 5 Pro costs almost the same as entry level Legion 5 Pro. Legion is heavier. Can you tell me if in "office" workload Ideapad is quieter and cooler than Legion 5 Pro?
Andrei Girbea. You can't really compare those two series. If yes, be aware that will run louder and hotter under load than what I have here. Should still be fine with daily use, though. How about multitasking between email office spreadset and word , onedrive, and youtube music, how many hours will it last? Nice review thanks. Thanks for the review, especially for the explainations on heat and noise.
Did you notice screen wobble? Other reviewer mention wobble even during typing which is a No-Go. Not really. It wobbles if you poke it or for a few seconds after you move the laptop, but it stabilizes very quickly. I'm not seeing any wobbling or movement as I'm typing right now with the laptop on the desk.
Purchased a Lenovo Idea Pad 5 Ryzen 7 On closing the laptop, the black casing near the left hinge came apart with black pieces coming apart. The Lenovo company refused to honour the warranty saying that the laptop was abused. Hey Andrei, you guys haven't reviewed the Thinkbook 16p yet. I think it's quite a compelling laptop as it's basically a professional version of the Legion Slim 7.
Would love to see your deep dive on it. Have you or anyone who has this laptop made the USB-C docking function work? I have 2 monitors with USB-C docking and this laptop only says "your display connection might be limited" on both of them. I even exchanged the laptop but the issue persists across Windows 10, Windows 11, different versions of AMD drivers etc. I even took it to Lenovo certified service center and they confirmed it doesn't work with their hardware either.
What do you mean by limitation? Got it. I no longer have the laptop around to restest my USB-C connectivity. Do these monitors work with the same USB-C cable with other laptops? Yeah they do, even with smartphones! I looked around and there seem to be other reports as well with the USB-C port not working well on DP: the monitor lights up, but then it turns off. Couldn't find an explanation. Have you tried with both USB-C ports, the one in the back and the one in the middle?
Also, no need to submit a comment multiple times, just wait for me to get it in order to approve it or reply! But never since. I've become somewhat weary of dividing my digital experience between a desktop PC, a beefier Pavillion gaming laptop because of the GPU and my favorite lighter and cool but ageing Matebook D14 with Ryzen graphics. I want my next laptop to be the only PC I use for everything, take it with me everywhere or dock it with a monitor on a desk, and no longer jump between computers.
I want something similar to my Matebook D14 in 14" size, 1,5kg weight, IPS display quality, great battery life and quick USB-C charging but with better performance and the Ideapad 5 Pro 14 seems to fulfill most of these requirements. I do some image editing for scientific publications figures, graphical abstracts , work with GIS software and might require some light video editing. I might as well just build cheap a desktop PC and use it like a console.
Sure, Graphics-wise, the MX is significantly more capable, so the question is whether the 4C i7 is enough for your needs. AMD and more capable graphics, plus better cooling than the IdeaPad 5 Pro 14 which is different from the 16 here. If possible, I'd also consider waiting for next-gen hardware updates early next year, with potential availability in stores around end of Q1.
I wasn't aware of the Asus Vivobook Pro 14X, seems to fulfill pretty much all my requirements except USB-C is data transfer only — I'd like my laptop to charge with the same USB-C charger of the smartphone so as to avoid another power brick to carry around. Can you recommend what would be the best choice between the two?
And yes, I'd probably do better waiting for the next-gen, but I wouldn't mind getting a nice discount on a current model if possible. Right now. It's a better performer with better cooling and a better keyboard. It's also a bit thicker and heavier, though, so up to you. No need for the Ryzen 9, if you can find the Ryzen 7 for a little cheaper. I bought 4 of these laptops for me and some friends.
The one with GPU seemed to spin up the fan quite often, but you can actually game on it. Probably I would have disabled the Nvidia card in the bios if I had kept this one for myself. In the end I kept the cheapest one for myself, the euros black Friday price with h and 60hz display. To my eyes, the display looks pretty much the same as the hz version, at least for my usage.
I'm also satisfied with the touchpad, once set up at the highest sensitivity can be used enjoyably But yeah, when you need to click instead of tap it's bad. I don't care much for the aluminum case — my plasticky latitudes and ThinkPads were much nicer to touch. The bios is very locked down … But there's a guy who discovered a way to unlock de bios to customize the device further … I didn't venture there yet. As the reviewer said, the display is the real hero — it's almost as two fullhd displays rotated and squished together … Great for work.
