Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H90080FR)
It has a sleek and understated look with its relatively light and thin Arctic Gray design.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communication, a headphone/microphone combo audio port, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to, for example, a TV or monitor, but also 2 USBs, 1 of which is USB 3.0 ( USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect a USB 3.0 device.
Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen is less tiring for the eyes than a glossy panel during prolonged use and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors). The screen also displays more true-to-life colors than average, without achieving the colorimetric accuracy offered by high-quality IPS or OLED panels. For the rest, the screen adopts a 1600×900 definition, as well as a 16/9 format that lends itself well to video playback, classic specs for a 17in.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H90080FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H90080FR) is a relatively thin and light full-size laptop intended for everyday general use.
It benefits from SSD storage which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is quiet but also consumes less energy, is more robust and much faster.
In concrete terms, thanks to the SSD, starting/stopping and starting applications are much faster and we arrive at online game cards faster.
Despite the lack of a dedicated on-board graphics card, you can indeed view photos and videos, as well as play light titles thanks to the Intel UHD G4 graphics solution integrated directly into the processor.
This is a low-power Intel Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake, coupled with 8 GB of RAM, which is very useful when multitasking. In this way, good performance is obtained in daily use, such as in office automation and surfing the Internet.
However, keep in mind that this Core i3 shows its limits among processor-intensive software, such as AMD Ryzen 3 and of course less powerful processors.
If 512GB is too small, you can of course use an external storage unit. Preferring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device is then an interesting option to get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 6 hours of battery life in light use for this computer whose weight and small size make it easier to transport, without being the easiest to transport mobile PC due to its large size. However, a 17 inch offers the advantage of being comfortable for mainly seated use (for example at home).
