The High Definition High Fidelity screen is an undeniable asset of this laptop to seduce creatives in particular with its 2.8K definition significantly higher than Full HD and its OLED DCI-P3 technology. It indeed implies a colorimetric accuracy much higher than average with very deep blacks but also large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. Not to mention a minimal latency which reinforces the overall fluidity including in games coupled with the frequency of 120Hz higher than the 60Hz standard.
The screen, which has a glossy treatment due to its OLED technology and is therefore sensitive to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) while giving punch to the colors, adopts a 16/10 format which displays more elements in height than the classic 16/9.

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8 (82Y5002CFR)

The Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14APH8 (82Y5002CFR) may appeal to those looking to acquire a versatile, compact, portable multimedia laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.

Its autonomy, which is around 7 hours on battery in light use, will delight those looking for a Student laptopHigh Definition High Fidelity, especially since it is as easy to transport as an Ultrabook because it is compact, thin and light.

Such autonomy is possible thanks to the integrated high-capacity battery but also the presence of NVIDIA Optimus technology.
It evaluates graphics requirements in real time. Depending on this, Optimus automatically switches between the Radeon 780M graphics module housed in the processor and the dedicated GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card.

As standard, Optimus runs the laptop on the Radeon 780M despite its lower performance because it is energy efficient, which improves battery life.
The GeForce RTX 4060 is activated by Optimus when it judges the performance of the Radeon 780M insufficient to perform the requested tasks, typically for gaming.

The GeForce RTX 4060 ray tracing, more demanding and powerful than the Radeon 780M, is a high-end NVIDIA Ada Lovelace dedicated graphics card suitable for recent games.
Under the most resource-intensive 3D titles, concessions are necessary to obtain good playability. Clearly reducing the screen definition is a good solution since in 2.8K more calculations are necessary in Full HD, which implies a lower number of fps.

While gamers will appreciate the GeForce RTX 4060, creators will too, since its capabilities are used to accelerate multimedia processing in software that uses GPU computing power, such as the Adobe suite, VSDC or Vegas.

The core is also suitable for processing since it consists of 16 GB of RAM and an AMD processor. Phoenix Ryzen 7 7840HS Octo Core which houses the Radeon 780M. This core guarantees faster processing than if we were dealing with 8 GB DDR4/5 as well as a Quad/Hexa Core processor.

These components therefore accompany the GeForce RTX 4060 very well in games and more generally in multimedia. They actually deliver good overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.

On the storage side, Lenovo opts for a 512 GB SSD, a solution found in many models on the market.
But the Chinese brand has the good idea of ​​offering an M.2 slot available to insert a second SSD if you need more capacity. In this case, you can also obviously rely on an external storage module. In this case, choosing a USB 3.0/USB-C device is an advantageous option for obtaining fast transfers.

The fact remains that if SSDs have become the standard storage under laptops, it is because they offer several advantages over a hard drive: greater resistance to shocks, lower energy consumption, silent operation and even greater speed.

As a result, responsiveness and fluidity are much better on a daily basis with an SSD than with a hard drive.
So launching games/software, performing processing, starting/stopping or even arriving at online game maps is faster with an SSD than with a hard drive.

Finally, this multimedia-oriented High Definition High Fidelity gaming laptop is noisy and heats up when pushed hard (e.g.: games, processing).
If necessary, it can be associated with a ventilated support to limit its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!.
