Lenovo announced new iterations for almost all of their laptops back in January at CES. One of those SKUs was the Gen 9 of the IdeaPad Slim 5 series which is now available in Nepal. In this article, let’s take a deeper dive into the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i, its specifications, price in Nepal, and availability details. 

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i Gen 9 (2024) Overview: 

Design and Display 

Starting off with how the IdeaPad looks and feels, you’ll not find many changes from the predecessor. Both 14” and 16” variants look very much like their Gen 8 counterparts but while the chassis remains untouched for the former, the new IdeaPad Slim 5i 16 is a bit heavier now starting at 1.89 kg. There’s also a 15″ model in the mix but since it’s not available here yet we’ll save that for later.

Anyways, the variants that have landed in Nepal feature a metal build with an aluminum top/bottom but plastic-built IdeaPads are also available in other markets. Colors-wise, you get your standard Cloud Grey and Abyss Blue options.

Talking of the display, you can purchase the IdeaPad Slim 5 Gen 9 with IPS and OLED screens. The 14” screen offers WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution while the 16” offers up to a 2K one. Brightness, color coverage, and coating depend on the configuration of the panel. These can range from a 300-nit matte display with 45% NTSC colors to a 400-nit glossy with full DCI-P3 gamut coverage. 

Performance and Memory

Under the hood of the brand new IdeaPad Slim 5 ultrabooks, you are getting brand new Intel Core Ultra 5 and Ultra 7 processors based on the newer Intel 4nm process. Not only are these chips faster than last-generation Raptor Lake processors, they are more efficient and feature much more powerful integrated graphics. Intel Arc graphics in these Meteor Lake SoCs are said to be up to twice as powerful as their predecessors. A perfect combo of power and efficiency ideal for ultrabooks like the IdeaPad Slim 5.

Intel core ultraIn terms of memory, you get up to 32GB of fast RAM but unfortunately, it’s soldered to the motherboard. Similar is the story with storage where you get up to 1TB of Gen 4 SSD but no extra slots in the IdeaPad Slim 5i (2024). 

Battery and Connectivity 

Moving on to the endurance side of things, there are three different battery configurations in total: an underwhelming 47Wh one, a respectable 57Wh one, and a jumbo 76Wh cell. All IdeaPad Slim 5i models currently available in Nepal have the 57Wh battery regardless of the size. The 14” model supports up to 65W charging while the 16” can accept 100W. 

Despite the larger chassis, you don’t get any extra ports on the IdeaPad Slim 5 16. Both models share two USB-Cs, two USB-As, an HDMI, a micro SD card reader, and a 3.5mm jack.
