Lenovo unveils IdeaPad laptops, a 5G IdeaPad and a tablet
Lenovo Tab P11
First, let us get the tablet out of the way, the P11 is an 11inch LCD tablet paired with QUALCOMM’s Snapdragon 662. The display is a 2000 x 1200-pixel resolution. There is a single 13mp rear camera and an 8mp front-facing camera for those zoom calls you don’t want to be in. The battery is not too bad at 7500 mAh and 20 watts charging over USB-C. I must point out that the finish looks quite appealing.
We get Android 10 with two configurations to choose from, a 4/64GB and a 6/128GB version but not to worry too much about storage as both variants come with a micro-SD slot. The Tab features LTE and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and has a quad-speaker setup. It supports the Keyboard Pack, Dock, and Precision Pen 2 stylus which can be purchased separately. The base 4/64GB version will sell for $229.99 starting later this month.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5G
Next, we have the Lenovo IdeaPad 5G, before we continue, I must point out that I am super excited about this device because It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor. The low powered chip allows for a fan-less Windows 10 experience. Although it only supports WIFI 5.
The Ideapad is a 14-inch 1920*1080p 100 nit display with sleek bezels and 100% sRGB coverage and dual-array microphones. The laptop weighs just 1.2Kg and measures 14.9mm thick with a 20-hour battery (51 WHr battery). Prices will vary by region.
The laptop can be configured with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a PCIe SSD with up to 512GB capacity.
Lenovo IdeaPad 4G/LTE
The Ideapad also comes in a 4G version (if you don’t have 5G yet) and is identical to the 5G version apart from the 4G and the processor which is the Snapdragon 8c chip.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Pro (with Intel)
Most OEMs are not moving over to Arm completely so don’t worry Lenovo has you covered. The IdeaPad 5i Pro uses an 11th Gen Intel Core processor up to i7. The all-metal laptop is offered in two sizes – 14-inch and 16-inch, which weigh 1.45 kg and 2 kg, respectively. Both screens have a 16:10 aspect ratio which I am not a big fan of.
The 16-inch model has a 2.5k screen with an option of 120hz refresh rate up to 350 nits. The 14inch model has a higher resolution 2.8k screen up to 400 nits with the option of a 90 Hz display.
Apart from option up to a core i7 the IdeaPad also has Nvidia’s mx450 graphics and Lenovo offers the option to move between performance and a power-saving mode. You can add up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and an SSD up to 1 TB.
The 14-inch model has a 56.5 WHr battery, the 16inch one gets a larger 75 WHr capacity and can be charged over its Thunderbolt 4 port. And these come with WIFI 6.
The Intel-powered IdeaPad 5 Pro models will be available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) from March. The 16” model will start at €900, the 14” one from €700. They will not be available in North America.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro (with AMD)
These laptops are armed with an AMD Ryzen H-series processor. These available with 14inch 90 Hz and 16inch 120 Hz displays.
The 16inch Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro sets itself apart with optional Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics and up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. The 14inch model gets only an MX450 GPU. The 16-inch model will be coming to North America starting at $1150 and the 14-inch model will be heading to the EMEA market launching for 800 euros.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro with Oled
We know Samsung has brought OLEDs to the mainstream and Lenovo seems like the first OEM to use these. But not to worry the LCD option is still available. This model also comes with up to 11th-generation Intel Core mobile processors along with Intel Iris Xe graphics. The laptop display has a 90Hz refresh rate and Dolby Vision HDR support.
The YOGA Slim features a 14-inch 2.8k Oled display with a 90hz refresh rate and 16:10 aspect ratio. The display of the new Yoga Slim 7i can provide 100 percent DCI-P3 and 125 percent sRGB. The laptop also includes up to 16GB of RAM and up to a 1TB PCIe SSD.
