Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ITL05-791 (82HS0098FR)
With its thin and light dark Graphite Gray chassis, it has a sober but also original design since it can be opened 360 ° to transform it into a Tablet.
Its screen is indeed adorned with multi-touch touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it, by pressure / gesture, you can interact with the system and the software.
Due to its tactile aspect, the processing of the screen is brilliant: it revives the colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
In addition, the screen takes advantage of IPS technology and thus has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. On the other hand, its colorimetry is classic, below that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, with its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated just like a TPM 2.0 security chip, you can authenticate yourself on the system by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard is equipped with a practical backlighting system to correctly distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
This versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook integrates good connectivity including 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
It is a shame, however, that Lenovo does not exploit native support for Thunderbolt 4 by Tiger Lake processors here.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ITL05-791 (82HS0098FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ITL05-791 (82HS0098FR) is a thin and light compact High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet designed for general-purpose mobile use.
It benefits from a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the average very appreciable in multitasking as well as a low consumption Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor.
The Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) is integrated within this Tiger Lake. Thanks to its performance significantly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620, you can watch photos and videos on this hybrid Ultrabook but also play titles that are not too greedy in graphics resources.
On a daily basis, this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook delivers good general performance that can satisfy many users.
However, if you plan to often perform work that requires processor and / or graphics resources, you should rather turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
However, this will have an impact on the battery life while in this matter, this thin and light laptop convertible into a Tablet can last about 9 hours on battery in light use.
This will interest all the more nomads as the transport of this versatile Ultrabook is facilitated by its compactness, finesse and lightness.
In terms of storage, here we find an SSD that is silent while being more robust than a hard drive, less energy and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops than with a hard drive, just like software launches and treatments, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
If with its 512 GB the onboard SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks, this may prove to be too fair for some. But in this case, we still have the possibility of using an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
