Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ALC6 (82KV00CQFR)
It sports a sober and elegant appearance with its relatively light dark silver Arctic Grey thin design.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop is good, including 1 USB-C, an audio port, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communications, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example but also 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device to it.
The screen adopts classic specifications for a 17-inch with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16/9th format suitable for playing videos. On the other hand, it is treated anti-reflective which makes it less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny slab and more readable in bright environments (eg exterior). Moreover, if the colors it displays are not as faithful as those obtained under a high-end IPS or OLED panel, the colorimetry here is more accurate than the average which is appreciable.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ALC6 (82KV00CQFR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ALC6 (82KV00CQFR) is a thin and light large format laptop intended for common versatile use.
Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance delivered by this versatile laptop because it is built around 8 GB of RAM and a low-power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne processor.
Thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core, you can also watch photos and videos but also play light titles while no dedicated graphics card is embedded.
The storage is entrusted here to an SSD that clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Because it is silent, more robust, less energy consuming and above all much faster.
As a result, the SSD ensures much faster starts/stops, processing and application launches than a hard drive, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It is a 512 GB SSD that we find here integrated, capacity similar to what hard drives offer as standard. However, in the event that you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting option to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use for this computer whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate the transport for a 17-inch which is however not positioned as one of the most easily transportable because of its large format. However, it offers the advantage of being comfortable in the context of a mostly sedentary use (eg at home).
