The 120Hz Chromebook from Lenovo offers a fluid scroll.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook might be the ideal GeForce Now machine
Lenovo has unveiled the IdeaPad 5i, a machine with an ordinary exterior but a potentially spectacular screen. Starting in September 2022, the device will be sold in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for a price of €549. Pricing and availability in the US have not yet been disclosed.
Lenovo’s first 16-inch Chrome device, the IdeaPad 5i, weighs 4.10 pounds and is 0.8 inches thick. The display boasts a 2.5K resolution, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and a maximum brightness of 350 nits, but the 120Hz refresh rate is what has the Chromebook community buzzing. So, when playing games, you can view up to 120 frames per second (on GeForce Now or Stadia, for example). Additionally, it ought to result in considerably smoother scrolling and more pleasurable video viewing. Many contemporary laptops, like the $3,499.99 Asus one I just reviewed, have refresh rates lower than 120Hz. No, I haven’t moved on (yet).
There’s also an option for a 60Hz, 300-nit FHD screen, which will presumably cost lesser.
Other features of the IdeaPad 5i include a keyboard with 1.5mm of travel, speakers tuned by Waves MaxxAudio, and a 12-hour battery life (which strikes me as ambitious for a high-resolution, high-refresh-rate screen, but you never know). The camera has a physical shutter and is FHD.
Customers can choose between an Intel Pentium 8505 and a more potent Core i3-1215U processor, as well as up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage when it comes to processors.
Additionally, Lenovo unveiled two new Tab P11 tablets to its lineup. The second-generation Tab P11 Pro caters to media consumers with a 600-nit 11.2-inch OLED touchscreen and HDR10 Plus compatibility. The MediaTek Kompanio 1300T octa-core processor, which my colleague Dan Seifert described as a “OLED screen movie machine,” gives it 120 percent more power than the previous model.
There has a removable keyboard that is “ThinkPad-inspired.” The magnetic Precision Pen 3 from Lenovo can be added to the gadget.
The second-generation Lenovo Tab P11, which runs the tablet-focused Android 12L, was also introduced. This device has a normal 11.5-inch LCD screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz. It is reportedly 50% more powerful than its forerunner and is driven by a MediaTek G99 chip.
Both tablets come with subscriptions to MyScript Calculator 2, a tool that can solve written equations, and Nebo, a digital notebook program. Both are available in Storm Grey, with the P11 Pro additionally having Oat and Sage options. “At least two major Android OS upgrades” and three years of security updates will be provided for the items following their release.
The P11 Pro is launching in September with a starting price of $399.99. We’ll have to wait until January for the regular P11 Pro, which will start at $249.99.
