Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 Specifications
Lenovo’s latest gaming laptop comes with 11th Gen Intel Core i5-11300H chipset with 8GB RAM. You can expand memory up to 16GB using the second SO-DIMM slot. It also comes with 512GB of NVMe SSD storage and will run on Windows 11 Home.
The laptop gets a 15.6-inch FullHD IPS display with a refresh rate of 60 or 120Hz, depending on the model chosen. It also gets a 720p HD webcam located just above the screen.
In terms of connectivity options, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 has Type-C, Ethernet, HDMI, USB ports and a headphone jack. The laptop gets a 45WHr battery and a white backlit keyboard.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 is a laptop for those on a tight budget. The GTX 1650 is capable of handling some multiplayer FPS titles like Fortnite, Valorant and CS-GO at really high framerates. However, you will need to lower the settings or lower the resolution for other AAA titles if you want better performance.
The IdeaPad line of laptops should also be a portable system that offers a balance between work and gaming. The company offers a game-centric setup, but they will come at a higher price.
