Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05-626 (81W2002KFR)
With its light silver Platinum Gray design, it has a sober and elegant look.
This thin and light laptop PC for a 17 inch has a correct connection except … that it does not include USB-C and Ethernet, which may disappoint some.
We find here integrated a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this computer to a TV or a monitor, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port or even 3 USBs including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Thanks to its anti-reflective coating, the screen is more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) but also less tiring for the eyes over a long period. For the rest, the screen sports classic characteristics with its 16: 9 format suitable for video playback and its definition of 1600×900.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05-626 (81W2002KFR)
The Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05-626 (81W2002KFR) is a sleek 17-inch laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
As it relies on a decent amount of 8GB RAM and a low power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 3700U Quad Core Picasso processor, this computer delivers good overall performance that may suit many users.
And all the more so since although it does not have a dedicated graphics card, it is able to run games that do not consume 3D resources thanks to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics solution integrated into the Quad Core Ryzen 7.
The Radeon RX Vega 10 is significantly superior to the UHD 620 of Intel processors and is in fact positioned at the level of an entry-level dedicated graphics card.
With this thin and light PC, you can therefore also watch photos and videos of course.
On the storage side, Lenovo has chosen an SSD here. It has the advantage of being silent but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, this elegant silver computer is much more responsive and fluid than if it had a simple hard drive. Thus, starts / stops are much faster with the SSD just like software / game launches and we get faster on the cards of online games for example.
Of course, if you need additional space, you can use external storage. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
In addition, as a 2.5-inch slot is free, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive to this PC, whose thinness and controlled weight facilitate transport. However, this computer adopts a 17-inch format which is particularly comfortable for predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
As for battery life, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
