A cheap laptop doesn't exist without compromise, but despite being sold at a budget price, the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14 feels premium. Its snappy performance, sturdy build, and additions like a USB-C port, Wi-Fi 6, and a fingerprint scanner help the IdeaPad 3 outclass its competition. While it might still have some of the usual budget-laptop shortcomings like uninspiring speakers and a dull display, the IdeaPad 3 14 is still worth the price of admission and is one of the best inexpensive notebooks you can buy. It's our new Editors' Choice pick for budget laptops.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 is a great laptop for work and school. If you’re looking for a mid-range laptop that work empty your pockets, but which isn’t compromised with cheap build quality and out-of-date components, then this is a great choice. However, while the IdeaPad 3 has no fatal flaws, but it has a few disappointing ones, from a mediocre display and missing USB-C port. It’ll get the job done, but we’ve seen nicer economy notebooks on both the Windows and ChromeBook side of the aisle. We suggest checking out the Acer Aspire 5 (A515-56-50RS) or the Asus VivoBook 15 alternatives mentioned earlier if you’re resolutely pegged on a tight budget and must have a Windows-based notebook.

I am very impressed with all capabilities of this laptop. If you are searching for a laptop in the market right now, I think it is kind of hard to find a laptop at this price with a slim-bezel Full-HD IPS display, a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, and a fingerprint reader. In addition, the new AMD’s CPU, the Ryzen 5 5500U chip together with the fast 8 GB of RAM instead of 4 can make this laptop a good performer. So overall, yes, this Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14 82KT00AMUS will be your good laptop, and definitely worth your money as there isn’t really anything else that even comes close on the market. The Lenovo Ideapad 3 Ryzen 5 5500U 82KT00AMUS 14-inch laptop is phenomenal considering the features it offers. New AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU, thin bezel IPS display, backlit keyboard, Fingerprint scanner, and Wi-Fi 6 are rare features on this price-range laptop.
