Chassis, connectors, monitor on Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14ALC6 (82KT00UTFR)
It has an elegant and discreet look with its thin and light Arctic gray silver design.
This mobile computer runs on Windows 11S focused on security by only allowing the installation of applications from the Windows Store. If you want, you can get out of S mode for free to migrate to classic Windows 11, but then it is impossible to return to S mode.
This versatile laptop is well-equipped in terms of connectivity and competes with much more expensive models. There is actually 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communication, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USBs compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
Those who appreciate videos and more generally High Definition content will be pleased that the screen uses a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition that is superior to the 1366 × 768 standard. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14ALC6 (82KT00UTFR)
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14ALC6 (82KT00UTFR) is a slim and lightweight 14-inch High Definition laptop intended for general use.
It benefits from a good amount of 8 GB of RAM, which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low-power AMD Quad Core processor APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 5300U Lucienne, which is particularly notable under software that uses multi-cores.
Thanks to this core, good performance is achieved in daily use, such as in office automation and Internet browsing.
As a bonus due to the Radeon Vega 6 graphics solution integrated in the Ryzen 3 Quad Core, you can view photos and videos, but also indulge in light games while having no dedicated graphics card on board.
Storage is entrusted to a silent SSD, but also less energy than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive, which in particular means faster start / stop and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
Here we find a 256 GB SSD that is capable of holding light and / or few files / software, which is equivalent to half of what standard hard drives offer. But if you need more space, you can of course use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting opportunity to achieve fast transfers. It is also possible to add an additional SSD or hard drive via the available 2.5 inch slot.
In terms of the autonomy of this mobile PC, which is as easy to carry as an Ultrabook thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, so bet on about 6 hours of battery life with easy use.
