With its thin and light silver Arctic Gray design, it has a sober and elegant appearance.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile laptop is well equipped with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example its wireless Wi-Fi ax modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communication, its audio port, but also its 3 USBs, all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
Those who appreciate High Definition content such as videos will appreciate that the screen uses a precise Full HD definition, higher than the 1366×768 standard for this price level, as well as a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Performance, battery life for Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ALC6 (82KU01PEFR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ALC6 (82KU01PEFR) is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general use.
Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance provided by this thin and light laptop as it is equipped with a good amount of 8GB RAM as well as a low power Lucienne APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) AMD processor Ryzen 5 5500U.
The latter uses its full potential under software that uses multicore and can therefore be suitable for contained multimedia work if you have a small budget, such as video encoding.
Ryzen 5 Hexa Core also offers the advantage of integrating Radeon Vega 7, a graphics solution thanks to which you can view pictures and videos, but also indulge yourself in light games. Because here, logically, in terms of the price positioning, there is no dedicated graphics card on board.
Storage will also suit many users because it is entrusted to an SSD, which can compete with the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB, while being less energy demanding, more robust, silent and much faster.
Best known price: €499
Specifically, thanks to the SSD, we achieve much faster start/stop than a hard drive, as well as processing and launching software, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
More generally, the SSD offers much better responsiveness and fluidity than a simple hard drive.
If you need more space than the 512GB on offer, you can of course turn to an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, bet on around 6 hours of battery life with light use for this mobile computer whose transport is as easy as that of an Ultrabook thanks to its controlled weight and its finesse.
