PC giant Lenovo has announced the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro laptop in India today. The IdeaPad series from Lenovo is usually meant for business users, but falls in a more affordable price range than the legendary ThinkPad Carbon series from the company. Laptops in this range usually also fall in between the consumer and enterprise use cases, making them better suited for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) use cases. The new Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro will run on AMD’s 11th generation processors and those from AMD’s Ryzen chips as well. The laptop will be sold on Lenovo’s website and other e-commerce platforms at a starting price of Rs. 77,990.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro specs and features
The IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro has a 14 inch 2.2K IPS anti-glare display, which can get up to 300 nits in terms of brightness, and the company claims it will function dependably in direct sunlight. There’s also a 16 inch variant of the device, which has an WQXGA IPS anti-glare display, and higher 350 nits brightness. The screen has 16:10 aspect ratio and support 100% of the sRGB gamut, with narrow bezels on all sides.
The laptop also supports Dolby Atmos audio, with two user-facing speakers and the Dolby Access app, which allows users to adjust sound profiles.
As mentioned before, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro will come with a choice between Intel’s 11th Generation Core i7 processors and AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800H chips. For graphics, you get to choose between Nvidia’s GeForce chips, Intel’s integrated Xe graphics and AMD’s Radeon chips. The company also says that the device has an “enlarged touchpad and function arrow keys”, though it’s not clear just how big these are and whether it will make a difference.
Further, Lenovo is only offering one colour option for the IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro laptop. You can buy the device in the Storm Grey colour option. The 14 inch variant weighs around 1.38kg, and is 17.9mm thick. The 16 inch version, on the other hand, is 18.4 mm thick and weighs around 1.9 kg.
