Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W1008PFR)
It has an elegant and discreet design thanks to its thin and light light silver Platinum Gray frame.
This computer is equipped with a correct connection including a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port as well as 3 USB including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Too bad, however, not to find Ethernet ports and USB 3.1 Type-C …
The screen stands out for its anti-reflective treatment, making it less tiring for the eyes in the long run than a shiny panel and more readable in bright surroundings (eg outdoors). For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W1008PFR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ADA05 (81W1008PFR) is a thin and light 15-inch laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It can appeal to those who want to benefit from a high storage capacity because it offers a total of 1.1 TB higher than the average. There is a built-in hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB to store and install multiple files and software, as well as a 128 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, this thin and light PC is much more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. For example, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, software launches and processing.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this computer, which consists of an AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U low-power Picasso processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM above average which is very useful in multitasking. The general performance provided by this duo is able to satisfy many users.
In addition, with this PC, it is possible to play titles that do not consume 3D resources, thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution housed within the Picasso. It is in fact positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card and is therefore much more powerful than the UHD 620 of Intel processors. Of course, with the Vega 8, you can also watch photos and videos.
As for autonomy, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this laptop whose thinness and weight content facilitate transport.
