The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 is an affordable laptop with an excellent 14-inch display, a comfortable keyboard, and a solid, durable chassis. It offers the kind of performance that you can only find in more expensive laptops, and that makes it a top contender among budget laptops. For further features read Lenovo Ideapad 3 Review.
Depending on the country where you reside, the Idea pad 3 (15) is one of the cheaper devices on the market. As such, do not expect to be blown away by great performance, or by the good build quality. In fact, you should really narrow down all your expectations. Of course, this does not make the device bad, it just means that in order to have the perfect laptop for a low budget – some corners must be cut.
Usually, the first thing that goes down with the price is the display. Despite that, Lenovo is still offering this boy with a Full HD IPS option (although we were only able to get our hands on the TN model). Additionally, most of the budget notebooks have sluggish processors, just like the Pentium or Celeron series, but this is often not the case here. Now, pay attention – this laptop comes in four different iterations.
Most of the features are shared between all of them, but what makes them distinct are the CPU options. All features are discussed in the Lenovo Ideapad 3 Review. These devices come with a set of letters and numbers behind and we will help you set them apart – 15IIL05 (Ice Lake processors), 15IML05 (Comet Lake), 15ADA05 (Ryzen 3000U), 15ARE05 (Ryzen 4000U).
Undoubtedly, the latter is going to provide the best performance. However, we got the Ice Lake edition of the Idea pad 3 (15), and in addition to the potent integrated graphics solutions, you can get it with the GeForce MX330 and MX350. Well, not everything is fun and games here – come and see.
