Nomadic with its 9 hours of battery life and convertible into a Tablet, the slim and light Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05 (81X20094FR) with 15-inch Full HD anti-glare touchscreen, open at 360 °, is designed for versatile use. It relies on a good amount of RAM and an AMD Hexa Core Renoir Ryzen 5 processor with Radeon Vega 6 graphics for good performance in everyday use and the ability to run low-consumption games. However, USB-C is not on the program of this dark laptop.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05 (81X20094FR)
With its dark silver Graphite Gray frame that can be opened at 360 ° to transform into a Tablet, this thin and light laptop has a sober and original look.
The screen has multi-touch touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it, by pressure / gesture, you can interact with the system and the software.
As it is tactile, the screen is treated glossy. It therefore gives punch to colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment.
Thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos.
The connectivity built into this 2-in-1 laptop is correct, consisting of a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules for connections and remote communications, an audio port but also 3 USB including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05 (81X20094FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05 (81X20094FR) is a thin and light 14-inch High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet and designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to carry due to its compactness, thinness and light weight, this 2-in-1 hybrid laptop can last around 9 hours on battery power, something nomads are interested in.
The general performance it provides is able to satisfy many users because it is built around an AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U low consumption Renoir processor and a good amount of RAM of 8 Go.
Thanks to the Radeon Vega 6 graphics solution integrated into the Renoir Hexa Core, you can obviously watch photos and videos … but also play if you are satisfied with titles that do not require 3D resources.
The Radeon Vega 6 is indeed positioned at the level of an entry-level dedicated graphics card and is therefore more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
On the storage side, Lenovo opts here for a silent SSD but also less energy, more robust and much faster than a hard drive.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and launches of applications as well as processing or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here, the SSD offers a capacity of 256 GB. It is certainly sufficient for many uses but is inferior to the standard of hard drives. However, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to achieve fast transfers.
