The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ITL6 (82H8026CFR) against the competition

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ITL6 (82H8026CFR) is currently being released by: Lenovo France and meets much cheaper competitors in its class.

Chassis, connectors, display of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ITL6 (82H8026CFR)

It has a sober and elegant appearance with its thin and light Arctic Gray design.

In addition, the connectivity integrated into this versatile Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for external connections and communication, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to, for example, a TV or monitor, an audio port or even 2 USBs, USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when a USB 3.0 device is connected.

However, we regret the lack of a backlight system for the keys of the chiclet keyboard.

In any case, the screen uses IPS technology that guarantees more natural-looking colors than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. As a bonus, the screen lends itself well to displaying videos and wider High Definition content with its 16:9 format and Full HD definition. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also easier to read in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ITL6 (82H8026CFR)

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ITL6 (82H8026CFR) is a thin and light 15-inch high-definition laptop PC designed for everyday general use.

Relying on 8GB of RAM and a power-efficient Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor, this versatile Ultrabook delivers good overall performance suitable for many users.

And all the more so because it allows you to view photos and videos, as well as play modest titles thanks to the Iris Xe (tested by us), a graphics solution integrated into the Core i5.

Still, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor and/or an adequate dedicated graphics card if you plan to often perform activities that require processor and/or graphics resources.

On the storage side, there’s an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in capacity with its 512 GB, while being quiet, less power-consuming, more robust and much faster.

In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better response and fluidity on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, the starts/stops are much faster, especially such as processing and starting software, and we get to the map of online games faster.

If 512 GB is too small, you can of course use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0/USB-C device to get fast transfers.

As for the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook, whose transport is facilitated by its controlled weight and finesse, expect about 7 hours of battery life with light use.
