Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17IML05 (81WC009PFR)
It has a sober and elegant look with its thin and light Platinum Gray chassis for a 17-inch.
This laptop PC is properly equipped in terms of connectivity with its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications, its port audio as well as its 3 USBs including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
For this price, however, we regret the absence of USB-C and some will also deplore that of Ethernet, but the finesse can explain it.
The screen is anti-reflective which makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes over a long period. For the rest, the screen lends itself well to the display of videos with its 16: 9 format and adopts a definition of 1600×900, classic characteristics.
Performance, batery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17IML05 (81WC009PFR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17IML05 (81WC009PFR) is a thin and light 17-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It stands out for its good amount of RAM of 12 GB above the average very appreciable in multitasking. It supports a Quad Core i7-101510U low power Comet Lake processor. In practice, this duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, to regularly perform work requiring processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
Those who wish to play will also turn to another PC, and more generally those who intend to perform intensive processing in graphic resources.
This stylish silver Ultrabook does not in fact have a dedicated graphics card. But it allows of course to watch photos and videos thanks to the Intel UHD 620 solution, admittedly modest, integrated into the Quad Core i7.
Thin and light, this 17-inch laptop will be of interest to those who wish to benefit from a high storage capacity because it offers no less than 1.1 TB in this area. We find more precisely integrated a hybrid solution with 128 GB SSD designed to house the system, the rest taking place on the hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster starts / stops and launches of software.
Finally in terms of autonomy, expect around 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this thin and light Ultrabook, particularly for a 17-inch, while this format is very comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home) .
