I got this Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 AMD Ryzen 5 4500U with 14 inch Full HD IPS 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop (8GB/512GB SSD/Windows 10/MS Office 2019/Integrated AMD Radeon Graphics/Graphite Grey/1.5Kg), 81X2004RIN for Rs. 55500 on Amazon sale.

It was a great deal as the cheapest laptop with Ryzen 5 4500U and touch screen was a bonus.

The built quality of this laptop is plasticky but of good quality. so good that it looks like a metal body laptop. Balance is amazing with a single hand opening an easy task.

The screen is a Full-HD one with very good viewing angles. Glass on top is shiny so it reflects a lot of light but as the display gets very bright, it can be ignored. Touch works perfectly and given pen for drawing is great. It can be attached to USB port with given plastic holder. magnetic holder would be too much to ask for this price.

Performance of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 AMD Ryzen 5 4500U is great. On adapter power, it gave Cinebench R20 scores of 2353 and 2358 pts. Which is amazing. On battery the R20 score was 2240.

On ATTO Disk benchmarks the 512 GB NVME SSD worked perfectly and gave more than 1.15 Gb/s speeds on write and 2 Gb/s on read.

There was no thermal throttling during my testing and heating of the laptop was minimal.

The laptop had 2 grills on the front which gives stereo speaker sound. This is one of the best and loudest sounding speakers I have heard in laptops below 1 lakh price range.

Keyboard feels good in typing with good travel and softness. Webcam is just like any other webcam but has a privacy shutter which is great.

Fingerprint sensor for login works almost instantaneously and works always.

Overall, this is a great laptop for money and gives amazing performance due to AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor. I would recommend this laptop to all types of users except gamer as it does not have a dedicated GPU.
