Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ADA05 (81W20076FR)
With its light silver Platinum Gray design, this thin and relatively light laptop has a sleek and understated look.
In terms of connectivity, it is properly equipped with its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor, its audio port, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications without forget about its 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 peripherals are connected to it.
The screen stands out for its anti-reflective coating making it more readable in bright environments (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use. For the rest, it adopts classic characteristics with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16: 9 format suitable for playing videos.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ADA05 (81W20076FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ADA05 (81W20076FR) is a sleek 17-inch laptop designed for everyday use.
Indeed, it is suitable for Internet surfing and office use, thanks to its good amount of 8 GB RAM and its low-power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3250U Picasso processor.
This duo delivers good performance in this area. But it should be noted that the Ryzen 3 shows its limits under software demanding in processor resources, like the Intel Core i3.
Logically in view of its positioning, this relatively thin and light laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not designed for heavy graphics processing such as games.
On the other hand, thanks to the modest benefits of the Radeon Vega 3 solution integrated into the Ryzen 3, you can obviously watch photos and videos on this computer which benefits from SSD storage.
However, remember that an SSD is silent but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and launches of applications, and more generally from a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis.
In addition here we are dealing with a 512 GB SSD, a capacity rivaling the standard of hard disks.
But of course in the event that you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
In addition, as this computer offers a free 2.5-inch slot, you can add a second SSD or an SSD directly in the PC.
As for battery life, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this thin and relatively light computer for a large format laptop which is certainly not the most easily transportable but is particularly comfortable in the for predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
