With an autonomy that exceeds 11 hours, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ITL05 (82FG00CMFR) is a nomadic companion of choice. A wide spectrum of users can be satisfied with its configuration since it summons a fast SSD storage of 512 GB and 16 GB of RAM to support the 11th generation Core i5 Quad Core. This processor has the particularity of integrating an Iris Xe chip which supports a few creative tasks and games. In addition, there is an anti-glare IPS borderless screen, full connectivity with USB Type-C, a backlit keyboard and compact measurements. On the other hand, the case is not the most stable.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ITL05 (82FG00CMFR)
The new Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ITL05 (82FG00CMFR) is the direct descendant of the Ideapad S540. Like him, its case plays the card of robustness with a polished aluminum finish with a beautiful effect on the back of the cover but the plastic is still de rigueur inside. The design opts for a consensual color (Mineral Gray) with a uniform silver tint although slightly darker on the back of the cover. Note that Lenovo has endowed the back of the cover with a structured and uncluttered architecture with cut edges and a logo relegated to the lower corner in contrast.
The 15-inch format can be considered for the nomadic world. Its weight oscillates around 1.6 kg on the scale and its frame is compacted to a thickness of 17 mm and a format of 356 x 233 mm. The keyboard is backlit in two -tone white for easier typing in the dark and includes a number pad.
When you open this Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ITL05 (82FG00CMFR), you immediately notice its matte Full HD IPS screen with thin side edges. It takes advantage of a dense Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) which allows you to get the best out of High Definition content while the IPS panel promotes immersion with a perfectly readable display whatever the angle of approach and a correct brightness (300 nits). In addition, Lenovo covers its screen with a satin anti-reflective treatment that counteracts the effects of ambient light on the screen, which is valuable if you are working in a very bright room for example, especially since the brightness of the screen does not is not ridiculous (300nits).
Posted on each side of the ultrabook, the connection plays the card of variety in the age of minimalism with an HDMI output and three USB ports including two USB 3.2 and a USB 3.2 Type-C which supports the power supply (you can recharge the PC via USB-C) and video stream (DisplayPort). For data exchange, recent wireless WiFi AX and Bluetooth 5.1 modules are also on the menu.
Performance, autonomy of Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ITL05 (82FG00CMFR)
Before mentioning its performance, a word about the autonomy of this IdeaPad. Despite its small profile, Lenovo has still managed to slide a large 70 Whr battery, giving it more than 11 hours of autonomy . A force to carry it with you for a whole day. Plus, RapidCharge technology lets you power up to 80% of the battery’s capacity in just one hour.
To animate this IdeaPad 5 15ITL05, we find an 11th generation Core i5-1135G7 processor (Tiger Lake), this processor with a higher TDP (28W) than its predecessors (15W) gains a fairly visible performance increase on advanced software ( Lightroom, Capture One Pro, Davinci Resolve, 7Zip, etc.), a little less on basic everyday tasks (Office, surfing the Web, streaming …). We understand, these tasks in question are perfectly taken care of by the ultrabook, but since these are missions that only commit very few resources, the difference between the generations is not noticeable. And then keep in mind that we still have a low-power Core i5 in front of you,
Opposite, the RAM provides 16 GB of RAM , a generous total that ensures impeccable fluidity in multitasking.
But the most interesting gain of this Gen11 Tiger Lake lies above all in their new integrated graphics chip, the Iris Xe. Thanks to it, Intel is back in the race against AMD but also and above all against small NVIDIA graphics cards such as the GeForce MX250 or the GeForce MX350. The performances of the Iris Plus G7 of the Gen10 (Ice Lake) are exceeded by a good length. So, with the Iris Xe, you should be able to play many games at 1080p under good conditions and work on fairly graphics-intensive tasks (Lightroom) without delay. Another benefit of having a faster graphics chip integrated into the processor is that it simplifies the design of the ventilation system and therefore causes less noise and heat than in a configuration with a dedicated graphics card.
For its part, the storage is entrusted to a 512 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD which will bring a welcome dose of responsiveness to the system. Compared to a standard mechanical hard drive, is is quieter, more robust and energy efficient, and allows Windows to achieve remarkable fluidity with short load times and zero latency execution. What’s more, its capacity is nothing short of ridiculous and can accommodate a good chunk of your game library although some may not find it sufficient.
