Those that want a bit more mobility in their laptop compared to a full sized 15.6 inch model typically go the direction of a 14 inch display. While that may not seem like a huge difference it does result in a much lighter and more compact laptop option. The all new Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14ADA05 81W000DGUK comes with a 14 inch display so you can move around easier without carry a heavy and bulky laptop with you. Below we are going to review some of the key benefits and downsides to this new IdeaPad and see if it might be the right choice for you.
Processor: AMD Ryzen 3
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 128 GB SSD
Screen: 14 Inches
OS: Windows 10
- As we mentioned above this model comes with a 14 inch display and because of this is lighter than your typical full sized model and much easier to take on the go
- It includes two USB 3.0 ports for all your high speed external devices
- When it comes to hard drives SSD technology is clearly superior as it allows for much faster read and write times helping improve the overall performance of your device. This Ideapad comes with a 128 GB SSD drive
- You will also get a one year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 with the purchase of your laptop giving you popular programs like Word and Excel which are a must have for students or professionals
- The built in webcam also includes a physical shutter for added privacy
- When it comes to performance it lacks a powerful processor or much memory. This is fine for the average day to day user but anybody who has high demands on their technology may find it underperforms
- The SSD drive is great due to its fast read and write times but has limited capacity with only 128 GB of storage available. Anybody who saves lots of large files will find themselves quickly using up this space
- Only comes with a basic integrated graphics card so high end gaming is not an option on this laptop
This laptop is a nice choice for those who are on a budget and wanting something compact for basic everyday use but it lacks the performance to be a great high end laptop for those that do heavy multi-tasking or have the need to run resource intensive applications.
