The market for ultrabooks or the thin and light laptops that can actually pull off some heavy-duty has been growing exponentially and each brand has a series of laptops that do that. The same is the case with Lenovo’s IdeaPad lineup that’s best suited for working professionals while packing in enough horsepower to chew through the task at hand. Adding to the lineup of IdeaPad devices in Nepal, Lenovo has launched the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i in Nepal. This thin and light laptop that weighs around 1.6Kgs has got quite some heavy internals. Let’s take a closer look.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i Overview:
Design and Display:
On the display front, the IdeaPad Slim 5i houses a 15.6” inch IPS display with a peak brightness of 300 nits. The display here covers 45% of the NTSC color gamut and has a full-HD resolution covered in an anti-glare layer. The bezels are thin and a protruding bezel up-center houses the webcam. This protrusion also helps open up the lid with ease.
The entire contraption weighs a mere 1.6 Kgs which speaks for the portability of the device.
Underneath the hood, the IdeaPad Slim 5i runs on an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU that has 4 cores, 8 threads, and turbos up to 4.7GHz with 12MB of Intel Smart Cache.
Handling the graphics is a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU with 2GB of GDDR6 VRAM. One of the compromises you have to make for the portability is with the memory inside, with 16GB of soldered DDR4-3200MHz, leaves little to no room for upgrades. As for the storage, The IdeaPad Slim 5i houses a 1TB HDD and boots off of a 256GB PCIe SSD storage.
