Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14IML05 (81WA0033FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14IML05 (81WA0033FR) is a compact laptop designed for everyday use.
In this area, as in office automation and Internet surfing, as well as in content multitasking, it delivers good performance because it is based on a low-consumption Intel Comet Lake Pentium Gold 6405U processor and 4 GB of RAM. To be more comfortable in multitasking, we can add a RAM bar to this PC which shows its limits under software that consumes processor resources.
The daily experience is greatly improved by the presence of an SSD. This storage is silent but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light computer is much more responsive and fluid than if it had a simple hard drive. Concretely, this manifests itself for example by much faster starts / stops and launches of applications.
With its 256 GB, the onboard SSD offers sufficient capacity for a number of uses. It is however lower than the standard of hard disks.
But if you need more space, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. Or use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
Logically considering its positioning, this Ultrabook does not have a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not designed for heavy graphics work such as games.
However, thanks to the modest Intel UHD part integrated into the Comet Lake, you can watch photos and videos on this PC, the transport of which is facilitated by its lightness, finesse and compactness. As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
