Of course, it is possible to backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard, which is convenient to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.
Thanks to its 120Hz frequency higher than the standard 60Hz, the screen improves fluency in games. It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content such as videos due to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition.

Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15ACH6 (82K2003XFR)
Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15ACH6 (82K2003XFR) is a versatile 15-inch high-performance notebook PC designed for creation and gaming.
A maximum of users will be happy with the overall performance provided by this creative gaming laptop because it is built around a good amount of 16 GB RAM coupled to an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Hexa Core Cezanne processor.
Creative will especially appreciate this core because it guarantees faster multimedia processing than 8GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor. In particular, we notice the difference in areas that use RAM and CPU resources by utilizing multicore, such as photo editing, video editing, or 3D rendering.
The creators will also appreciate that the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card is on board because it speeds up processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.
GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing with NVIDIA Ampere architecture will also be of interest to gamers as it is capable of supporting a range of concession-based games that require graphics resources to achieve good playability.
It turns out that the GeForce RTX 3050 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers the Radeon Vega 7 as much as possible, a graphics solution integrated in the Ryzen 5 and yet much more modest, because its lower energy consumption promotes autonomy.
In this case, expect about 5 hours on battery with light use.

SSD storage is silent but also less energy intensive than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Specifically, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive, which in particular involves much faster start / stop, processing and launching of games / software, or even a faster arrival on the game cards. line.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with what hard drives offer as standard. What if we need more space? You can add an extra SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. Or even use an external storage device. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting opportunity to take advantage of fast transfers.
Finally, in case of severe stress (e.g .: treatments, games), expect a creator-oriented gaming laptop to warm up and be heard.
A ventilated support can be used if necessary to limit temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
