Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15IAH7, i7-12700H RTX 3060

70% Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i Gen 7 review: the cheaper Legion
Source: 91mobiles English
A fine mid-range gaming machine, the IdeaPad Gaming 3i should live up to your expectations. It has a good CPU and GPU combo and the screen looks sharp and responsive for all sorts of games. The laptop is also quite excellent for everyday usage and should serve well to students as well as for your office needs. My only concern is that the top-tier variant of the IdeaPad Gaming 3i, which is the one that I have reviewed here, is priced awfully close to the base model of the Legion 5i Pro. Not only do you get a more premium chassis if you opt for the Legion, you also get faster DDR5 memory, a slightly larger battery and more configuration options. Essentially, this particular configuration seems a bit expensive for a mid-range gaming notebook, and I would suggest checking out the lower-spec models of the IdeaPad Gaming, if you don’t require so much power. On the other hand, if you do have a budget of Rs 1,50,000 it is better to add some more and go for either of the Legion-branded gaming notebooks.

The CPU clocks from 1.7 to 4.7 GHz and supports vPro.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
