Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H900F7FR) against the competition
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H900F7FR) is currently displayed in promotion at Amazon and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category, where it is one of the cheapest to offer an SSD with such a high capacity with such a powerful graphics solution, but also Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connection, and this under Windows 11.
And right now Lenovo is refunding 50 euros for the purchase of this laptop.
Chassis, connector, screen on Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H900F7FR)
With its relatively light and thin Arctic Gray design, it has a sober and elegant look.
This versatile laptop incorporates good connectivity options that can compete with (much) more expensive models: 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example wireless modules Wi-Fi ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communication, a combination audio port for headphones/microphones or even 2 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected .
The screen uses a 16:9 format, which is suitable for playing videos associated with a definition of 1600×900. In short, specifications for a 17-inch model in this price range. However, the screen stands out for its more faithful than average colorimetry, without however achieving the accuracy that advanced IPS or OLED panels provide. Also, since it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outside) than a shiny panel and less tiring on the eyes over a longer period of time.
Performance, battery life for Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H900F7FR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ITL6 (82H900F7FR) is a comfortable, relatively thin and light 17-inch laptop intended for general daily use.
In daily use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation, it delivers good performance because it relies on 8GB of RAM, which is very useful in multitasking, as well as a low-power Intel Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake processor.
If the Core i3-1115G4 shows its limitations under software that requires processor resources, like AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processors of course, it offers the advantage of integrating the Intel UHD G4 graphics solution, thanks to which we can see photos and videos, but also play light titles. And this while there is no dedicated graphics card on board, which is logical in terms of the location of this computer.
Storage is entrusted to an SSD, which clearly enhances responsiveness and agility on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that it is much faster, but also less energy demanding, more robust and silent.
Best known price: €499
In practice, the SSD in particular guarantees the start / stop and launch of applications much faster than a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
And of course, if you need extra space, you can use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
Regarding the autonomy of this Ultrabook, whose finesse and controlled weight are noticeable for a 17-inch, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation with light use. It’s certainly not the most portable out there, but its large format is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (e.g. at home).
