Lenovo isn’t waiting until the Consumer Electronics Show in January to introduce its mid-2023 consumer laptop lineup. The company also isn’t waiting for Intel, AMD, or NVIDIA to officially introduce the chips that will power these laptops.

The company has unveiled eight new laptops that will start shipping under the IdeaPad Pro 5 and IdeaPad Slim 5 names between April and July, 2023.

Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14″ laptop (AMD)

That’s a lot of laptops, but in a nutshell, here’s what it boils down to:

  • Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i (Intel) with 13th-gen Intel chips and 14 or 16 inch displays
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5 (AMD) with Ryzen 7000 series chips and 14 or 16 inch displays
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i (Intel) with 13th-gen Intel chips 14 or 16 inch displays
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5 (AMD) with Ryzen 7000 series chips and 14 or 16 inch displays

As the name suggests, the Ideapad Slim 5/5i laptops are thin and light notebooks, although the exact weight and dimensions vary by model. AMD-powered versions start at 3.06 pounds and 0.67 inches thick, while Intel models start at 3.15 pounds and 0.62 inches thick.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i 16″ laptop (Intel)

Interestingly the IdeaPad Pro 5/5i laptops aren’t much bigger: bot Intel and AMD models start at 0.62 inches thick and 3.15 pounds. But the Pro models are available with better screens (up to 2880 x 1800 pixels and 120 Hz) and select models are available with next-gen discrete graphics from NVIDIA, while the Slim models all have integrated graphics.

Possibly the most interesting things about the new laptops, given the timing of their announcement, are the processor options:

  • IdeaPad Pro 5: AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS, Ryzen 7 7735HS, Ryzen 5 7640HS, or Ryzen 7 7840HS
  • IdeaPad Pro 5i: “Next-gen” Intel Core i5 or Core i7
  • IdeaPad Slim 5: AMD Ryzen 3 7330U, Ryzen 5 7530U, or Ryzen 7 7730U
  • IdeaPad Slim 5i: “Up to next-gen” Intel Core i5 or Core i7

Lenovo notes that only some models will be available in the US. So if you live in the United States and had your heart set on a 14 inch IdeaPad Slim 5i with an Intel processor, you may have to pick one up on your next trip abroad. The same goes for the 16 inch IdeaPad Pro 5 (AMD) and all 14 inch versions of the IdeaPad Pro 5/5i (Intel or AMD).

Here are more detailed specs for Lenovo’s new IdeaPad 5 series notebooks:
