Popular PC and laptop maker Lenovo has finally launched its Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro in the country of India, with the IdeaPad series in general aimed at business individuals, but for cheaper than the ThinkPad Carbon series offered by Lenovo.
Laptops that are part of this range are for both consumers and enterprises, making it easier for the users to take their laptop to the office and use it on their own.
Coming back to the laptop, it runs Intel 11th Gen chips and AMD Ryzen chipsets. It retails from Rs 77,990 and will be available to purchase via Lenovo’s official website and other e-commerce giants.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro: Features and Specifications
Lenovo has equipped the IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro with a 14-inch 2.2K IPS LCD anti-glare display with a peak brightness of 300 nits, which, as per the company will allow it to function in direct sunlight.
This is not the only variant, since there is another 16-inch variant that includes a WQXGA IPS anti-glare panel with a peak brightness of 350 nits. This has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and has 100% of sRGB with slim bezels to the side.
Coming to the most important part, performance is split since the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro is offered in both Intel and AMD versions, meaning users can choose from between Intel‘s 11th Gen Core i7 processor and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H chip with Nvidia’s GeForce chips, Intel’s Xe graphics and AMD’s Radeon series of chips.
Lenovo adds that it has added an enlarged touchpad and function arrow keys, but, from the presser, we cannot tell as to how large this touchpad actually is. Dual stereo speakers take care of the sound, with support for Dolby Atmos present on the laptop, making for the ideal content consumption experience of the user.
To add to this, Lenovo is offering just one colour option for the IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro in the form of the Storm Grey hue. Dimensions wise, the 14-inch variant weighs a rather light 1.38kg and is 17.9mm thick, while the 16-inch larger variant is 18.4mm thick and weighs just shy of 2kgs.
This launch comes at a time when PC components are retailing for exorbitant amounts, so it makes sense to take a look at competitive laptops and ultra-books, with this launch coming a week or two after the launch of the Mi Notebook Ultra and Realme Book Slim, two new offerings by big smartphone giants.
