Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05 (81W2002LFR)
With its light and fine light silver Platinum Gray design, it has a sober and elegant look.
Its connectivity is classic, including a useful HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port and 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 plugged in.
No USB-C or Ethernet ports, however, and if you want to take advantage of it, you can go through USB to USB-C and USB to Ethernet adapters to take advantage of it.
The screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16: 9 format lending itself well to video playback. However, it stands out for its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05 (81W2002LFR)
The Lenovo Ideapad 3 17ADA05 (81W2002LFR) is a stylish 17-inch 17-inch laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
Those who wish to take advantage of a large storage capacity and great fluidity on a daily basis will be delighted to find a hybrid solution on board. It consists of a 128 GB SSD designed to house the main software in addition to the system, and a large capacity disk of 1000 GB intended to accommodate the rest, such as multiple files and software.
On a daily basis, the SSD clearly reinforces responsiveness compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, starts / stops are much faster, for example, as are software launches and treatments, and we get faster on the cards of online games.
It is indeed possible to run games that do not require 3D resources on this relatively thin and light laptop PC (for a 17 inch) while no dedicated graphics card is on board.
This is thanks to the performance of the Radeon RX Vega 10 solution housed within the processor, which is superior to those of the classic UHD 620 of Intel processors.
Of course, you can also watch photos and videos on this sleek silver laptop built around a low power AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor Ryzen 7 3700U Picasso and a good amount of 8 GB RAM. .
This duo provides good general performance able to suit a number of users, all the more associated with the aforementioned SSD.
As for battery life, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight content and finesse facilitate its transport for a 17 inches. This large format is certainly not the most easily transportable. But it is particularly comfortable for predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
