    I see no reason to test consumption and noise on playing muddy fhd on YouTube, which is doubly muddy, because. played on a 2.5k screen. Now only the [email protected]+ playback mode is relevant. And in it, not everything is already so good in the x86 camp, as in smartphones that consume many times less …

    fhd on such a screen no one will watch a priori if there is a 4k+ source. And even more so the buyer who understands the difference in video quality 4k and fhd on YouTube…

    For people who buy it as a universal laptop (thanks to the keyboard with a numpad), what is more important is what is the typical noise when the load on the cores (all threads) is around up to 25-30%. No discrete video chip. It is this load that most often occurs in browsers (or even more without banner cutters and the removal of analytical scripts that collect various information in the background) and in various specific software running in the background, and 32GB of memory is only clearly conducive to this.

    In a quiet room, I would like to get complete silence up to about this load in the Balanced profile, although, for example, on my Dell G5 5587 in the Performance profile, the coolers are silent up to about this load and core temperatures up to 75C, i.e. they do not turn on for hours in surfing. This is exactly what is important to the average buyer. Apparently, Lenovo, unlike Dell, is not sure about the reliability of the solution with disabled coolers even under such a load and a processor temperature below 75C, although the G5 5587 is completely plastic…

      Hi, this makes sense. I test daily use with light browsing, not with video streaming. I only take the thermal reading with streaming because it allows for a more standardized load, while with browsing it would vary to some degree between each run
