The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ITL05 (82FE01BMFR) against the competition

The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ITL05 (82FE01BMFR) is currently shown in promotion at Lenovo France and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category, where it is one of the few to offer such a powerful graphics solution with such a large amount of RAM and a display with such natural colors, as well as a biometric solution.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ITL05 (82FE01BMFR)

It has a sober and elegant appearance with its thin and light anthracite graphite gray aluminum design.

This versatile Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for external connections and communication, the practical HDMI video output for easy connection to, for example, a TV or monitor, the audio port or the 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.

Some will appreciate being able to authenticate biometrically using Windows Hello technology and the integrated fingerprint reader.

Many people will be happy to be able to illuminate the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish the keys in the case of limited ambient light.

The screen will also appeal to a maximum of users with its sRGB and IPS specifications guaranteeing more natural-looking colors than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. Thanks to the 16:9 format and Full HD definition, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content. In addition, due to its anti-reflective treatment, it is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ITL05 (82FE01BMFR)

The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ITL05 (82FE01BMFR) is a thin and light compact High Definition laptop computer intended for everyday versatile mobile use.

It delivers good overall performance and may satisfy some users as it packs a good amount of 16GB of RAM paired with a low-power Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor.

Whether with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) integrated in the Core i5 or the dedicated GeForce MX450 card, it is of course possible to view photos and videos on this Ultrabook equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.

In practice, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Iris Xe and the GeForce MX450 as needed. The Iris Xe is preferred by Optimus as much as possible, despite its slightly more modest performance, because it consumes little energy, which favors autonomy compared to the GeForce MX450.

In this regard, count on about 9 hours of battery life with light use, which is considerable for many hours of serene use of the PC without a cord. And all the more so since this mobile computer is easy to transport due to its compactness, finesse and lightness.

If you can play modest titles with the Iris Xe, the slightly more powerful and greedy GeForce MX450 can run games that aren’t too greedy for graphics resources. The GeForce MX450 is called in by Optimus when it comes to performing graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe.

On the storage side, there is an SSD which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, starting/stopping is much faster, as are the processing and startup of software, and we can get to the map of online games faster, for example.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard disk, but also consumes less energy, is more robust and quieter.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives.

However, if you need extra space, you can use an external storage space. Preferring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to get fast transfers.
