The screen is a major asset of this configuration, especially for creatives because it reproduces colors much more faithfully than average while offering great depth of blacks as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. But also a reduced latency which, combined with the 120Hz refresh rates, clearly reinforces the general fluidity including in games, which gamers will appreciate.
The screen is indeed adorned with OLED DCI-P3 specifications but also 2.8K, a definition higher than Full HD. It is therefore very well suited to High Definition content while its 16/10 format displays more information on the height than the classic 16/9.
OLED involves a glossy coating that brightens colors but is subject to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8 (82Y5002EFR)

The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8 (82Y5002EFR) can appeal to those looking for a versatile, compact, multimedia portable laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.

Some wishing to have a Student laptop versatile multimedia player performing well in gaming and creation will appreciate that it is as easy to carry as an Ultrabook thanks to its lightness, compactness and finesse. Especially since it is able to last around 7 hours on battery in light use.

To ensure such autonomy, this creative gaming laptop relies on a high-capacity battery as well as NVIDIA Optimus technology.
Optimus automatically performs a real-time switch between the Radeon 780M graphics solution inserted in the processor and the dedicated GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card.

Optimus favors operation on the Radeon 780M as much as possible, even though its performance is significantly lower because it consumes little energy, which improves battery life.
When the performance of the Radeon 780M proves insufficient to perform the desired tasks Optimus automatically activates the dedicated GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card.

More demanding and powerful than the Radeon 780M, the GeForce RTX 4060 ray tracing is a high-end dedicated NVIDIA Ada Lovelace graphics card capable of running recent games as long as we agree to concessions to obtain good playability under the most demanding games in 3D resources.
Because a greater number of calculations are necessary in 2.8K than in Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps.

The Radeon 780M takes place in the Ryzen 9 7940HS AMD processor Phoenix Octo Core here coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide solid general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users.

The GeForce RTX 4060 is well supported on a daily basis, including in games, by this core that will delight creators. Because here we get faster processing than with a Quad/Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4/5. We clearly feel the difference in areas that require CPU and RAM resources using multi-core, such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing.

Creatives will be even more delighted that the dedicated GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card accelerates multimedia processing in applications taking advantage of GPU computing power, such as Vegas, the Adobe suite or VSDC.

Lenovo offers 2 SSD slots in terms of storage, one of which is free to add a second SSD if necessary. If the basic capacity of 512 GB, equivalent to that of many models on the market, proves to be insufficient, you can also use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.

In any case, the integrated SSD, like any SSD, offers the advantage of being more robust than a hard drive, more energy efficient, silent and much faster.
The SSD therefore provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.

In practice, you can access online game maps faster with an SSD than with a hard drive, while game/software launches, processing and startups/shutdowns are faster.

Finally, in the event of heavy loads (e.g. games, processing) this versatile, multimedia-oriented creative gaming laptop heats up and makes itself heard.
To contain its temperatures, it can be combined with a ventilated support (remember to check the dimensions carefully!.
