Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ALC6 (82KU01BJFR)
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ALC6 (82KU01BJFR) is a slim and lightweight 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It is based on an Octo Core processor, AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5700U Lucienne with low consumption combined with 8 GB RAM to provide a good overall performance that can suit many users.
The Ryzen 7 5700U Octo Core will implement its full potential under multicore applications such as modest video encoding.
This laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. However, it allows you to view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated in the Ryzen 7.
The storage is entrusted to an SSD, which clearly enhances the reactivity and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is silent but also less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD ensures much faster start / stop, processing and software launch than a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games for example.
It is a 512 GB SSD offered here, capacity in line with the standard for hard drives. A 2.5 inch slot is available if needed to add an extra SSD or hard drive to increase space.
Of course, we can also use an external storage device. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting opportunity to achieve fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, opt for about 6 hours of battery life with light use of this elegant silver-colored general purpose computer, whose weight and finesse make it easy to transport.
