The base model packs a 14-inch 1080p display, a Ryzen 5 4500U CPU, 8GB of RAM, AMD Radeon graphics, and 256GB of SSD storage. Integrated into its design are two user-facing Dolby Audio speakers and a webcam privacy shutter and fingerprint reader for security.
Although we didn't review the Lenovo IdeaPad 5, we already know that its AMD Ryzen 5 chip puts Intel Core i7 laptops to shame. As we previously reported, the Ryzen 5 CPU's score of 4,747 wiped the floor with Intel's Comet Lake-U processor in Geekbench 5 permanence tests.
What's more, it maintained a consistent clock speed of 3.9 GHz during tests. The mystery Lenovo Ryzen 5 4500U laptop used in the test could very well be the IdeaPad 5. Based on its results, for a budget laptop, it's pretty big on performance.
At 3.7 pounds and 14.0 x 9.2 x 0.78-inches, the IdeaPad 5 is lighter than, yet similar in size to the Dell XPS 15 (4.5 pounds, 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.5~0.7-inches).
Port-wise, Lenovo equipped the IdeaPad 5 with two USB-A 3.1 ports, a USB-C port, and an HDMI port. There's also an SD card reader and headphone/mic combo jack on board.
So if you're looking for an affordable business laptop, the IdeaPad 5 is a solid buy.
