Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 Review: Office laptop relies on AMD Ryzen 5 Barcelo-U

For the home office. The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 laptop is primarily intended for desk-based office work and does its job well. Positive aspects of the laptop include a strong AMD Ryzen 5 Barcelo APU, moderate emissions, a colorful 17.3-inch FHD screen, and USB-C-power delivery.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 — a 17.3-inch office laptop — is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 5625U (Barcelo) and retails for about €729 at the time of testing. We have recently reviewed an almost identically equipped IdeaPad 3 15ABA7

The 17.3-inch IdeaPad 3's competition primarily includes devices such as the Asus VivoBook 17 F712JA and the Acer Aspire 5 A517-52G.

Chassis and features: IdeaPad 3 17 offers USB-C power delivery

Lenovo relies on a plastic chassis that is available in Abyss Blue and Arctic Grey color options — our test unit is in the Arctic Grey version. A brushed look is simulated at the base of the unit and the back of the lid for a premium feel. 

We did not notice any manufacturing defects, but the base and the lid are prone to excess flex. The screwed battery and other innards can be accessed after removing the bottom shell.

The Lenovo Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 comes with two USB Type-A ports (a USB 3.2 Gen1 and a USB 2.0) and a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port, which also supports Power Delivery and DisplayPort-out. This makes for a total of two video-out options together with the HDMI port. 

The full-size SD card reader's speed is about average when tested with our reference AV Pro 128 GB V60 SD card. One good aspect here is that the 0.9 MP (1280 x 720) webcam comes with a physical shutter.

The WLAN transfer speeds determined under test conditions (no interfering devices, router and laptop placed 1 m apart in clear line of sight) are good, but they are still a bit below what the Realtek RTL8852BE is capable of.

Input devices: No keyboard backlight on the IdeaPad 3 17ABA7

Lenovo equips the IdeaPad 3 with a chiclet keyboard that is suitable for everyday use sans any form of backlighting. The flat, slightly roughened keys have a short travel, a clear actuation point, and acceptable resistance. The keyboard seems to flex slightly during typing, but it does not feel disturbing.

The 10.5 x 7 cm touchpad supports multitouch gestures, and the smooth surface makes gliding easy. It responds to corner input, has a short stroke, and provides a distinct pressure point.

Display: IdeaPad 3 with a 17.3-inch IPS screen

Sub-pixel matrix
Sub-pixel matrix

The 17.3-inch FHD IPS display offers a matte finish, sufficienctly high brightness, and absence of any PWM flickering. 

However, it falls short of the ideal contrast target (> 1000:1). The competition seems to offer better values in this regard but falls behind in other aspects.

* ... smaller is better

The color accuracy is adequate for the asking price and target demographic. With a Delta E deviation of almost 5.5, the IdeaPad 3's display misses the ideal mark (Delta E < 3).

However, our calibration using CalMAN Ultimate from Portrait Displays and the X-Rite i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer reduces the Delta E to 2.4 and ensures a more balanced grayscale.

The IdeaPad 3 offers a relatively good color gamut coverage, which is not common for an office notebook. Although the laptop itself isn't made for creative workflows, it still shows a rich, colorful image. The Aspire 5 and VivoBook 17 cannot keep up in this regard.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 5 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 9 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17744 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers relatively stable viewing angles and can be read from any position. The screen is also quite legible outdoors when the sun is not too bright.

Performance: IdeaPad 3 with a fast AMD Barcelo-U APU

The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 offers enough computing power for office and internet applications as well for casual, non-intensive games. Lenovo uses AMD Barcelo-U APUs ranging from Ryzen 3 to Ryzen 7 options, which range in price between €500 and €900. Our present configuration is available for €729.

Test Conditions

Lenovo offers three performance modes with the IdeaPad 3. These can be switched via the Fn + Q key combination. We used High Performance mode for benchmarks while battery tests were performed using the Battery Saver mode.

Processor

The AMD Barcelo Ryzen 5 5625U is a six-core 12-thread processor with a 2.3 GHz clock that can boost up to 4.35 GHz. Our testing shows the CPU performing at expected average values.

In Cinebench R15 multi-core, the Ryzen 5 5625U clocks around 3.5 to 3.7 GHz while the single-core test shows clocks ranging from 3.5 GHz to 4.35 GHz. These values reduce when on battery power. 

The Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test shows a consistent turbo boost clock. On battery, the turbo boost drops to values just above the base clock.

System Performance

The smoothly performing system is able to cope well with office and internet applications as well as with games at low settings as evidenced by good PCMark results. However, the provided single-channel 8 GB DDR4-3200 memory hinders the APU's full potential. We recommend installing another memory stick to enable dual-channel mode.

The transfer rates of the provided RAM module are on expected lines for DDR4-3200 memory. However, the competition is able to offer better values owing to their dual-channel configuration.

The memory stick is covered by a protective shield

Storage Devices

Lenovo equips the IdeaPad 3 17ABA7 with an Intel PCIe 3 M.2-2280 SSD. The transfer rates are good, but the SSD shows some performance fluctuations due to thermal throttling. 

Lenovo offers space to add a 2.5-inch SATA drive, but the necessary SATA connectors are not provided.

An Intel PCIe 3 SSD serves as the system drive.
