[Specs and Info] Lenovo IdeaPad 5 (15″, 2022) – AMD is really slow with their CPU rollout

While the Ryzen 7000 family is getting closer with every day, AMD is still taking its time with the 6000-series, especially on the business end. The gaming market is starting to see more and more 6000H-series laptops, while the more efficient U-series, that power a large part of the enterprise world, are still to be seen.

Today we have the new Lenovo IdeaPad 5, which offers both AMD and Intel CPUs, in a portable chassis, despite the 15-inch form factor.

Today we’re giving you a quick overview of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 (15″, 2022).

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 (14″, 2022): Full Specs


The laptop has a very standard design, with simple lines, sharp edges, and rounded corners. In terms of build quality, there are two options. Either a fully aluminum device or with a plastic base. There are also several color options, with Abyss Blue, Cloud Grey, Stone Blue, and Storm Grey. The bottom panel has a long rubber strip, both for grip and for some elevation, which is further helped by the lever mechanism of the lid. In terms of weight and height, the laptop stops the scales at 1.55 kg and has a profile of 17.8 mm.


There are a total of three FHD displays. We start off with a TN panel, which has poor viewing angles that we generally wouldn’t recommend. There are two IPS options, with 300 nits of brightness. One of them also has 100% sRGB coverage and a 1200:1 contrast ratio, while the other doesn’t sport the same coverage and lower 800:1 contrast ratio.

Specifications and features

There are a lot of CPU options. On the AMD side, there are the Zen 3 refreshed chips, with three 15W processors: the Ryzen 3 5425U, Ryzen 5 5625U, and Ryzen 7 5825U. On the Intel end, we have three Alder Lake U-series CPUs: Core i3-1215U, Core i5-1235U, and Core i7-1255U. You can also configure the laptop with either the Core i5-1240P or the Core i7-1260P. All CPUs come with integrated graphics, with either the Radeon RX Vega or the Iris Xe Graphics.

The laptop is offered with either a 57Wh or a 76Wh battery pack, which is quite a lot, considering the hardware selection. The I/O consists of two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, a USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 2) port, an HDMI 1.4 port, an SD card reader, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
