    Screen Washed Out

    I can’t recommend this product. The screen was washed out and had a blue tint. Adjusting display settings didn’t affect it. I don’t know if it was defective or if this is just the way screens look on budget laptops, but if you’re looking for a laptop to watch videos or edit photos, I wouldn’t recommend this one.

    Still worth it

    As stated in another review, Lenovo needs to make corrections to the product description. It does not have an Ethernet connection or USB-C. Comes with 8 GB ram, with about 2 GB dedicated to integrated graphics. Vega 8 graphics should handle all games on medium or low settings. Bought this to play WoW and LoL. You could probably upgrade the memory and ram, they just want you to give that business to their technicians. Don’t fall for it! Investigating, DIY before donating your money.I decided to rate it 4 stars because the product description is garbage. But I really like the design of this model. Lightweight and sexy blue.

    Great for light gaming + demolishes everything else you throw at it

    This is probably the best value for the money laptop I could find after extensive research. Sure, there’s been deals with other laptops with an AMD 3500u inside but that was before the pandemic + prices have gone back up to normal.Now, the laptop. For $450, you’re getting the AMD 3500u with the included Vega 8 GPU, 8GB RAM, 256gb SSD. The screen itself is nothing to die for. It’s 1080p 60hz, and you definitely have to adjust the viewing angle sometimes because it can be too overexposed or too underexposed when viewing from extreme angles but it’s a good screen in the endThe magic of this laptop comes from the price point vs. performanceThe 3500u totally demolishes any intel equivalent laptops at this price range out of the water, and the fact that it is an APU that comes with Vega 8 graphics is a godsenda i5 8250u (the price equivalent of the amd 3500u) with it’s integrated graphics does half of the performance in games that the Vega 8 achieves, this can mean the difference between viewing a powerpoint presentation and getting a consistent and playable frame-rateTake GTA V for example. The Vega 8 achieves for me 1080p 35-45FPS with all “Normal” settings, and 720p 50-70FPS. The intel equivalent will only run you up to 720p 35-45FPS. Don’t even try 1080p, at only 15-25FPS.Rocket League at 720p performance settings on the i5-8250u? 40-60FPS. Try 70-80FPS on the 3500u/Vega 8 combo.Fortnite? (yes I know) – 720p 35-45FPS on the 3500u. Try 20-30FPS on the i5-8250u.Enough gaming. Battery is fine on light workloads, and it charges super quickly. Like others have noted, some of the information on this amazon listing is wrong so do your research!Either way, I’m really happy with this laptop. Definitely is a good machine at a good price point. Great for work and for some light games. I would definitely recommend this laptop as well if you want to gift it to a child/teen for school + knowledge that it can run titles like Fortnite, Minecraft, etc and are on a budget.

    only 5.6gb useable ram

    pretty good laptop for the price, be aware that while it has 8gb ram, only 5.6 are useable. if 8gb of useable ram is a must for you, look somewhere else

    Decent Laptop for work and light gaming

    First off I’ll start by saying that this laptop is pretty decent for the price can’t complain about that, but sadly this product doesn’t seem to be heavily supported by Lenovo. I got my laptop a few days ago and used it for one day before having the touchpad give up on me (no my rating on this product will not be affected because i received a defect), I followed the steps on their website to fix this to no avail because they didn’t have the proper hardware updates on their site for this laptop as you can see in their description of the product on the amazon listing page some of the info is wrong. That being said this laptop is pretty decent and I do recommend it for college students and business workers it’s light and very portable, I can hold this with one hand effortlessly the only thing i dislike about the build is the plastic shell, but when you get specs like the AMD RYZEN 5 3500u with Vega 8 graphics and a 256 gb SSD for this price you cant really complain.More about gaming: I’ve tested games like Warface, Fortnite, and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 they played well on low settings this pc isn’t bad for that what it wont run that well will be games like call of duty modern warfare, but i’m sure with overclocking and enabling parked cores even that can be played. The screen of the laptop is 60hz so playing these games at 60fps looks smooth.Tips: If you plan on buying this laptop and you aren’t used to 14 inch screens beware it’s pretty hard to get used to but you will eventually.Summary: This is a good laptop for work and school it’s pretty powerful and it’s also good for light gaming I recommend it.Note to Lenovo: Support this product give it touchpad driver updates or Im afraid more people will run into the same problem as me and have to return the product because you aren’t supporting it well enough, I can barely find info or videos on this model at all, but I may consider making one if I do decide to get this model again after I return the defect I received.

    Can’t Beat The Price For This Performance!

    The Lenovo Ideapad 3 14 laptop is a very solid laptop and a must-buy for just $450.To start off with the pros,This laptop is very light, portable, fast, and powerful. I’m a college student going into I.T. and I edit videos a lot. The RAM, GPU, and CPU can easily handle that type of workload for 1080p video. The Ryzen 5 3500U with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics is more than capable of handling light gaming, 1080p editing, Unity/Unreal/Blender rendering, and absolutely blazes through everyday tasks.The keyboard has a phenomenal feel to it. While it’s definitely no Thinkpad keyboard, it feels much better than most laptop keyboards out there. The membranes give a nice, tactile, solid feel to each large key, providing a comfortable, solid, satisfying typing experience.The 256GB NVMe SSD gives the laptop a very snappy speed, with a near-instant boot time. While the storage capacity is definitely not vast, it makes up for it in speed. The Ideapad 3 also includes 2 USB 3.0 ports, so an external SSD/HDD is definitely a viable option if you want more storage on the laptop. (it’s what I did.)The 1080p display is crisp, sharp , and beautiful (if you spend some time color adjusting the screen in the Radeon settings.) It’s definitely more than viable for watching movies, streaming TV shows, or editing videos in 1080p.Now for the cons,The Ideapad 3’s battery is definitely not a poor one, but it’s far from great. On max performance mode, I rarely get more than 2 hours of battery life out of this computer on full brightness. However, running this on the “better battery” mode barely sacrifices any performance for me, and I’ve been able to get a significant 4-6 hours of battery life when running that mode.The trackpad is a very smooth experience, yet moving your finger around on it produces a weird knocking sound occasionally, but I’ve found this to quiet down as the laptop is used more often. Minor gripe.I know a lot of people have complained about the screen on this computer, but honestly, it’s far from a bad display. Sure, it only goes up to 220 nits (from my testing) so it can’t realistically be used outside on a sunny day, but for indoor use, even in a bright room, the display is easy to look at and is bright enough to be very clear. Now, keep in mind, the screen comes with all the downfalls of a TN panel, with viewing angles being rather lackluster, but while looking straight at the computer, there’s few displays you can get that beats this one for a sub $500 laptop paired with this powerful hardware.In conclusion,If you’re looking for a good laptop for under $500 that doesn’t look or feel cheap despite the (very solid in my opinion) plastic construction, this Lenovo is an absolute no-brainer. The Ryzen 5 and Vega 8 provides performance akin to laptops over double this one’s price. If portability, power, and convenience are what you’re keeping an eye out for, I can easily highly recommend this computer.Qualifications:- Information Technology Major-Computer Repairman for 4 years (both desktop and laptop)-PC system builder-Overall Computer EnthusiastThanks for reading my review!

    Great bang for the buck

    I love how people write 3 or 4 star reviews on something and compare them to high end products. IF I paid 7 or 8 hundred for this, I’d be a bit more harsh in the review.BUT…it’s a very nice mid $400s computer. Camera has a physical cover. Touch pad is very nice compared to others I’ve had to deal with. Processor, RAM, SSD are plenty speedy for it’s intended purpose. The blue plastic is…..plastic. But fit and finish is great….not seeing a downside that it’s not ‘premium metal case’. (As long as we don’t drop it?) Overall, very pleased. My only gripe would be the bloat software, but that’s ALL compys out of the box, not just this one. And Windows is probably the worst offender so it doesn’t matter which brand you get if it’s Windows 10. Anyway, it’s awesome.

    Reliable Spec Information

    I normally don’t do reviews but, if you’re like me you also scoured the internet and found nothing on this laptop based on the model number provide or the pictures. There’s conflicting information from the representative and the photos/specs provided so this is the specs as it sits in my hands.Specs:All plastic shellIdeaPad 3 14ADA05 81W0003QUSRyzen 5 3500u3 USB-A ports, 1 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0, there is no USB-C on this device. Do not use the answer from the representative as correct on this one. I even asked a more clarifying question and was told there is a USB-C, but you cannot charge over it.The screen is a 1920×1080 TN panel, no touch screen256GB NVME drive – no spinning HDD, so disregard the section that says 7200rpm on the description page8gb of DDR4 ram at 2400mhz3 cell battery – seems okay power saving options gives it roughly 8hrs depending on what you’re doing and your tolerable screen brightness (but your mileage may vary)There is no back lit keyboard. The keys feel textured and not smooth like some other laptops which, personally I prefer it.Review:This appears to be Lenovo’s answer to the mid-grade $400-$600 laptop shortage. If I had to guess it seems like this is in the chaise of the S145 with a 3500u APU.Compared to my wife’s Lenovo IdeaPad FLEX-14API with the same processor, ram, and SSD – performance wise it matches, but that’s not the end of it. Her computer has what feels to be an all metal design, the ability to flip into a tablet, backlit keyboard, touchscreen, and a much better IPS display (still 1920×1080) with better viewing angles. We purchased this for her last July, 2019 and the difference of final price was ~$75 higher. At the time of writing this the same laptop goes for $750 on Amazon for the “New” model and $699 for a used model.Conclusion:If you need a sub $500 laptop right now, this is a solid purchase as long as you know what you’re getting. If on the other hand you have the luxury of waiting a few months I would wait.If the prices/stock stabilize you can get much more bang for your buck for nearly the same amount of money. More laptops with the Ryzen 5 4500u is going to be coming out over the summer with 20% more power and it’s suppose to come in at a similar price point. Even if they come at a higher price point it will drive the price of the 3500u down.
