Description

Thankfully, switching from S-Mode to full Windows 11 is free, and not hard to do (Microsoft even provides instructions), but it's an odd hoop to jump through on a machine sold at retail.

The brand of product you buy can vary in importance, from person to person. Some people will of course be much more particular about the brands they will use. Whilst others aren’t interested in the brand and are more interested in the overall quality or price of the product itself. Thankfully Lenovo is a brand that many customers have grown to love over the years and is very popular for items in the Laptops and netbooks category.More information on quality can be found in this old but still very helpful article from Harvard Business Review. Unfortunately, part of this longevity comes from the display's noticeable dimness (and is also attributable to the very low native resolution). At full brightness, the HD screen produces just 258 nits—but that drops to a mere 32 nits when lowered to 50% brightness, as we do in our battery tests. Actual usability will require higher brightness, and even when dialed up to the highest setting, it won't offer much visibility in bright circumstances, like outdoor sunlight. The next step for us was to look at all of the products that fall within the Laptops and netbooks category, of which we found 151 products at Argos. So we pulled together all of the prices of these products to analyse the average prices as well as finding the cheapest and most expensive options.

Next up is material. Read through the product description for Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15.6in Ryzen 5 8GB 256GB Laptop to get an understanding of the materials the product is made from. Some materials will obviously be known for delivering better quality item than others. You might also have decided that you’ll only accept a product made from a particular material. One unexpected hazard of shopping in the bargain-priced section is that you'll run into non-standard versions of software. Case in point: Windows 11 S Mode, a limited version of Windows that's made for students and others that need added protection against unauthorized programs, with S Mode restricting users solely to apps that can be found in the Windows App store. We test Windows PCs' graphics with two DirectX 12 gaming simulations from UL's 3DMark: Night Raid (more modest, suitable for laptops with integrated graphics), and Time Spy (more demanding, suitable for gaming rigs with discrete GPUs). Just before we get into the detail of analysing the price of this product, we want to briefly highlight the importance of setting yourself a budget before you spend too much time shopping around for a suitable product. It’s all too often that we get carried away when shopping and find ourselves buying a fantastic product, but probably actually overdelivers on what we need and therefore costs a lot more than we should have spent. So spend a bit of time looking around at the sort of price you can expect to pay for products in the Laptops and netbooks category and use that alongside your own financial situation to set yourself a budget. Lenovo's 15-inch chassis accommodates a full keyboard with a compact numeric pad, which uses half-width keys. The arrow keys use a layout that fits four buttons into the space of three keys, with the up and down arrows getting their buttons but sharing a single key well. None of that is unique for a 15-inch system.Plus, with the low-powered CPUs found in these sorts of budget models, we simply don't have high hopes. The IdeaPad's graphics capabilities not only prove to be unimpressive, but they also don't hold a candle to AMD Ryzen-powered systems, like the Acer Aspire 5. Ultimately, the Lenovo is a machine built for simple web browsing and maybe some YouTube. Battery and Display Tests The next step after looking at products in the same category, was to look at products from the same brand, Lenovo. As you can imagine, pricing is one of the most important factors of any purchasing decision. We can find the perfect product for our needs, that fits the brief in every single way. But if it doesn’t fit our budgets, we simply can’t (or at least shouldn’t) buy it. This isn’t your typical laptop that you carry around—it’s a fashion statement. The IdeaPad 5 is built with a new level of attention to detail, making this machine soft and comfortable to the touch with a durable paint that creates a better user-experience and multiple color options, so you can find the one that best fits you.
