Lenovo Ideapad 3 15 (2021) with AMD Ryzen 5 5500U in Nepal

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Earlier this year, Lenovo refreshed its IdeaPad lineup of laptops with the latest processors from Intel and AMD. In this review, I’ll be discussing the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 (2021) powered by AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU.

Pros and Cons of Lenovo Ideapad 3 2021

Pros  Cons
  • Easy to carry around due to its thin and light design.
  • Battery lasts over 9 hours of light productivity.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Decent webcam video quality for video calls.
  • CPU can handle most light productivity tasks.
  • CPU and Integrated graphics can’t handle demanding workloads like video editing or gaming.
  • Can’t charge the laptop via USB-C.
  • The keyboard can cause fatigue over an extended period.
  • The small touchpad makes dragging and dropping hard

Style and Design

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 is a basic-looking laptop that shouldn’t stick out in a professional environment. As it’s a 15.6-inch device, it has enough room on the deck for a full-size keyboard with a Numpad on the right side. The exhaust vents are on the bottom near the back, while the speakers are near the front. Moving on, I’m in love with this Abyss Blue finish that Lenovo has used in this laptop. Not only does it help the IdeaPad 3 stand out from the generic look of most laptops in its price range, but the reflective decal also gives a certain character to the device.

Thanks to the Flip-to-Open feature, you only need to flip the lid to get the laptop running. You can then sign in using the fingerprint scanner (supports Windows Hello login) integrated into the power button.

Display of Lenovo Ideapad

You can configure the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 with a 1080p TN or a 1080p IPS panel, with or without support for touch input. Text and images look decently sharp, but some people may find the 16:9 aspect ratio a little too short for productivity. We recommend getting a model with the IPS panel because TN panels usually have worse viewing angles and color reproduction.

CPU Performance

Our Lenovo IdeaPad 3 has an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU with 6 cores and 12 threads. It’s a power-efficient processor designed for thin and light laptops, capable of handling general productivity tasks like text formatting and spreadsheets, as well as other simple tasks like web browsing and video playback. It can also handle more demanding tasks like photo editing as long as the material isn’t overly complex. If you have a heavier workload or need to run multi-threaded applications, it will provide a smoother and snappier experience with no hesitation or any sort of lag issues.

Performance Over Time

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3’s performance over time is outstanding. Neither the CPU nor GPU gets hot under load, and although there’s a little bit of throttling on the CPU, the average amount of performance loss is extremely minimal and isn’t noticeable.
