Chassis, connections, screen of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14IRH8 (83AL000XFR)

Compliant with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H and therefore robust, this versatile Arctic Gray silver thin and light aluminum laptop has a sober and elegant appearance.

This Ultrabook has good connectivity including 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB compatible 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 devices are connected.

As the webcam adopts Infrared technology, it can be authenticated biometrically by facial recognition using Windows Hello technology.
Privacy Shutter technology is present to turn off the webcam when not in use to better protect privacy.

When the ambient light is reduced, you can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard.

The screen is distinguished by its 2.2K definition superior to Full HD, lending itself well to High Definition content while its 16:10 format displays more information in height than the classic 16:9 format.
Furthermore, the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average while offering significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles due to its sRGB and IPS specifications.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny panel.

Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14IRH8 (83AL000XFR)

The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14IRH8 (83AL000XFR) may be of interest to those who wish to equip themselves with a compact versatile laptop PC equipped with a high-performance processor for everyday versatile use on the go.

Its autonomy is in fact around 8 hours on battery in light use, which is all the more appreciable as it is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness. Some nomads wishing to equip themselves with a Student laptop will appreciate.

Energy-efficient components are integrated to ensure such autonomy, such as the right amount of 16 GB RAM which is low consumption like SSD storage.

The SSD is in fact more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, silent and much faster.
In everyday use, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive.

Here it offers a capacity of 512 GB similar to what hard drives offer as standard.
However, if you need additional space, you can expand the storage using an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0/Thunderbolt/USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.

In practice, thanks to the SSD, starts/stops occur faster than with a hard drive, for example, as do processing and launching applications, and you can access online game cards more quickly.

No mistake, however: no dedicated graphics card is on board. The players will therefore move on.
However, thanks to the benefits of the Intel Iris Xe solution inserted in the processor, you can watch High Definition photos and videos. But also play light to modest games with concessions such as a reduction in screen definition to obtain good playability. Because the 2.2K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which implies a lower number of fps.

It is the Core i5-13500H Intel Raptor Lake processor with 12 hybrid cores which houses the Iris Xe. It is here associated with 16 GB of RAM to provide solid general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users.

We think in particular of the creators. Because the processing carried out using this core is carried out faster than with classic Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5. We clearly feel the difference in areas that are intensive in CPU and RAM resources using multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.

Finally, when it is pushed hard (e.g. treatments), expect this versatile, processor-efficient and easy-to-carry portable PC to heat up and make itself heard.

It can be combined with a ventilated support to limit its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
