It adopts a sober and elegant design with its light silver Platinum Gray frame with brushed metal finish.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is correct, consisting of a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications , an audio port but also 3 USB (all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 peripherals.
The screen is adorned with an anti-reflective treatment making it less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time than a shiny panel and more readable in bright surroundings (eg outdoors).

Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15IML05 (81WB0054FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15IML05 (81WB0054FR) is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
It is suitable for everyday use and content multitasking with its low-power Comet Lake Celeron Dual Core 5205U processor and 4 GB of RAM.
To be more comfortable in multitasking, we can add a RAM bar on the free slot.
In any case, you have to be aware of the fact that the processor shows its limits under software requiring processor resources. In addition, this Ultrabook is not designed for heavy graphics work such as games since it does not have a dedicated graphics card, which makes sense at this price point.
However, with this thin and light PC, you can watch photos and videos thanks to the services – albeit modest – of the Intel UHD part integrated into Comet Lake.
Storage supports the heart of this sleek, everyday computer well as it is entrusted to an SSD. An SSD is indeed silent but also more robust than a hard drive while being less energy-consuming and much faster.
Concretely the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive on a daily basis. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from much faster starts / stops and software launches.
Here it is a 256 GB SSD which is on board, sufficient capacity for a number of uses. But it is inferior to the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight and thinness facilitate transport.
