Sentiment Score 64%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ACH is a good multimedia laptop in the budget category. The 16-inch monitor with high WQXGA resolution, good quality, and fast response times is probably the centerpiece of this multimedia laptop. No matter what multimedia task is at hand - sound is likely to play an important role. The internal speakers are so poor - their maximum volume is low, and bass is also completely absent.

Pros
  • High-quality 16:10 display
  • High WQXGA resolution
  • High-resolution LCD panel
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Poor internal speakers
  • High price
