Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W10024FR)
It has an elegant and discreet look with its light and fine light silver Platinum Gray design that can be opened at 180 ° completely flat.
This laptop PC is equipped with a correct connection including a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications, a port audio as well as 3 USB including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16: 9 format lending itself well to video playback. However, it stands out for its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W10024FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W10024FR) is a thin and light 15-inch laptop designed for everyday use.
In this field as in Internet surfing and office automation but also content multitasking, it delivers correct services because it is based on 4 GB of RAM combined with an AMD Picasso Dual Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor low consumption Athlon Silver 3050U .
The latter is sluggish under software requiring processor resources, which implies slowdowns. But if you need to be more comfortable multitasking, you can always add a RAM bar on the free DDR4 slot.
Logically considering its positioning, this laptop PC is not designed to play and does not have a dedicated graphics card. However, thanks to the modest benefits of the Radeon Vega 2 solution integrated into the AMD processor, you can of course watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, Lenovo opts here for an SSD which has the advantage of ensuring much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thus, we obtain, for example, much faster starts / stops and launches of software.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
That said here if the SSD offers 256 GB of capacity which is sufficient for those who want to install and store software and files that are not too heavy. But we get less than with the standard hard disks.
However, we obviously have the option of using an external storage unit if space is scarce. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight and thinness make transport as easy as for an Ultrabook.
