Performance, battery life for Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ALC05 (82LN00GLFR)

The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15ALC05 (82LN00GLFR) is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile mobile use.

Its autonomy of approximately 10 hours on battery with light use will be especially appreciated by nomads who do not want to be burdened with a cord in their leg for many hours of use. And all the more so as this computer is easy to transport thanks to its finesse and controlled weight.

But thanks to its low-power Ryzen 7 5700U Lucienne Octo Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor and its 8GB of RAM, this versatile laptop delivers good overall performance that will satisfy many users.

This is all the more the case that, despite the absence of a dedicated built-in graphics card, you can view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics module directly integrated into the Ryzen 7 Octo Core.

The storage is up to par, entrusted to an SSD that competes with the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB, while being silent, more robust, less energy demanding and much faster.

In practice, the SSD thus provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we achieve much faster start/stop as well as processing and launching of software, and we get on the cards faster in online games.

If 512GB proves too tight, you can of course rely on an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
