Cozy up to the IdeaPad 5G, Say Bye to Slow At-Home Wi-Fi

Consumers need a fast, efficient and connected laptop to take them beyond their current reality – at accessible prices. With family members sharing home Wi-Fi networks at peak hours, it’s more important than ever to have a reliable 4G/LTE and 5G cellular connection to enable lightning-fast speeds during your next presentation to the boss. That’s why we created the new ultra-portable Lenovo IdeaPad 5G.

Offering up to 20 hours of battery life of continuous video playback, you’ll stay entertained watching videos on your sofa all day on this 14-inch clamshell laptop with available lightning-fast 5G speeds (supports sub-6 GHz), reliable 4G LTE, plus strong Wi-Fi 5 connectivity. This practical yet sleek device makes it easier for multitaskers to stay connected at home or on the go by combining what you love about your smartphone, (it even has a SIM card holder!) like instant on responsive performance, with the efficiency of a thin and light fan-less laptop with Windows 10. Where 5G is unavailable, you’ll enjoy more security and dependability via 4G LTE connectivity, which comes default on the new IdeaPad 5G laptop.


The performance and efficiency of the IdeaPad 5G is enabled by the leading Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 8cx 5G compute platform and utilizes powerful Qualcomm® Adreno™ 680 graphics and the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 Modem-RF system for connectivity. This innovative 5G-connected laptop empowers you to download movies, make calls and send emails from virtually anywhere at speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G, through a 5G service provider. You can download large files in a flash and stream shows with the clarity of Full HD through its 14-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS display that’s 300 nits bright for a rich picture with 100 percent sRGB quality color gamut. Also available is the 14-inch Lenovo IdeaPad 4G/LTE model4 powered by the Snapdragon 8c compute platform, delivering smooth, responsive performance as you learn and play. With the IdeaPad 5G and the IdeaPad 4G/LTE, you’ll also get up to 8GB LPDDR4X memory and 512GB of PCIe SSD storage.

Offered in a sleek Light Silver hue with the same “bouncy” and comfortable IdeaPad keyboard customers love, the laptop’s clever fan-less design keeps everything cooler and quieter (similar to a tablet). Enjoy crisp sound from user-facing speakers optimized with Dolby Audio™. Plus, a dual array microphone ensures clear online calling, no matter if you’re chatting with friends or quickly checking in with the office.

Instant on with Modern Standby means your IdeaPad 5G laptop is ready to work and explore when you are. Stay worry-free and unlock your laptop with just your face via your infrared (IR) camera for added security. You’ll find it located atop razor-thin borders for a roomy 90 percent screen ratio for expansive panel viewing. Super portable at 2.6 lbs (1.2kg) and 0.59 inches (14.9 mm) thin with a 51WHr battery, plus Rapid Charge Express8, you’ll probably get tired before it does. Easily recharge your laptop, or your smartphone, with the single cord solution via a full-function USB Type-C® port.

Picture This! New Show Mode for PC from Alexa

Lenovo brings you Show Mode for PC with exciting features from Alexa to help you stay connected at home.  With this new feature, Show Mode transforms your Lenovo PC into a hands-free, full-screen Alexa experience. It turns your PC into an Echo Show-like display so that the whole family can now see and enjoy talking to Alexa.  

As powerful as a mouse click or keystroke, Alexa for PC lets you get more done with your PC with just your voice. Ask Alexa to play music from Amazon Music, favorite apps, and local radio and glance at song titles and album art from across the room or up close; your PC mics with far-field technology help Alexa to hear your voice commands clearly even while music is playing.

You can also set reminders and control your smart home while multitasking on your laptop. Students learning remotely can ask Alexa questions to help them with their homework. Or, simply view rotating interesting updates and content such as the weather forecast for the week, things to try with Alexa, recommendations for music to listen to, and more as you move through your day. 

Expected to start in Q2 2021, Lenovo users across a wide portfolio of PCs, including select Yoga™ and IdeaPad laptops to start, will gain access to the features enabled by the Show Mode for PC experience.

Ready for Home Performance, Whatever the Screen Size: IdeaPad 5i Pro and IdeaPad 5 Pro

Introducing Lenovo’s most powerful IdeaPad laptops yet, the IdeaPad 5i Pro and IdeaPad 5 Pro. It’s the new reliable laptop series that oozes style and performance in a range of configuration options. Choose your perfect entertainment specs, display size (14-inch and 16-inch), and an all-metal chassis exterior in either fashionable Cloud Grey or Storm Grey hue.

For the first time on a Lenovo IdeaPad laptop, the display is offered with wider 16:10 aspect ratio to better accommodate for multitasking with Windows and the occasional movie night. With less bezel on all sides for an impressive 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and colorful 100 percent sRGB quality, the IdeaPad 5i Pro and IdeaPad 5 Pro deliver better learning and entertainment experiences from wherever you are in the house, thanks to more stable Wi-Fi 65 connectivity. Display is certified safer by TÜV Rheinland11 for having Eye Care technology to reduce blue light to help protect your eyesight while working long hours.

Effortlessly portable and weighing just 1.45kg for the 14-inch size and 2kg for the larger 16-inch, and with smarter features like an IR camera with Windows Hello to help keep you better protected while logging in hands-free. Plus, the IR camera’s clever time-of-flight (ToF) sensors provide everyday efficiencies via attention-sensing software from Glance by Mirametrix®, like pausing your video when you walk away to get more coffee. Your laptop will even call out with an alarm if it’s ever moved when your back is turned. 

Show Mode on Lenovo PCs makes interacting hands-free with Alexa on your PC easy and more convenient. Alexa can help you remember important events, meetings, and tasks, with reminders that alert you even when you are away from your PC.

Your laptop is set to Intelligent Cooling Mode by default to help you leverage balanced AI-enhancements to optimize battery life; to shift your laptop’s performance, just use Lenovo Q-Control by pressing Fn+Q to go up to Maximum Performance mode or down into Battery Saving mode. And when you opt for the display with the higher refresh rate spec, you’ll have the ability to slow down screen refreshes for added control over battery life while engaged in lighter work—just press Fn+R.
