Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14ADA05-82GW003JGE

The IdeaPad 1 14 is a simple machine, but it’s well-designed and has nearly everything you’d expect from a no-nonsense laptop that allows you to check emails and get schoolwork or other light tasks done with relative ease. A "true" 128GB SSD (as opposed to an eMMC drive) and a roomy 14-inch full HD display are arguably the star attractions, with the comfortable keyboard and reasonably modern styling playing important backup roles. The only things potentially missing from this fine budget laptop are USB-C ports and a more capable Ryzen or Core processor. For the latter, you’ll need to step up to the MSI Modern 14, which is currently our top pick in the budget-laptop category. But if you need to shed another $100 or $150 from your spend versus the Modern 14, this is one of the best picks in its price zone.

AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Athlon 3050e: Mobile APU that integrates two Zen cores (with SMT, therefore 4 threads) clocked at 1.4 to 2.8 GHz. The TDP is specified at 6 Watt and therefore the chip can be passively cooled. The integrated Radeon graphics card offers 3 CUs at up to 1000 MHz (Radeon RX Vega 3). The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-2400. The chip is manufactured in 14nm and officially counted to the 3000 series of mobile processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
