Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 16IAH7-82SA009GGE
Yes, there are a few omissions. We would have loved to see an HDR option for the screen, and perhaps a better-tuned set of speakers. And seriously, an SD card slot is a must on all laptops, especially if you’re paying over Rs 50,000. A machine that retails for over triple that amount without an SD card slot, is just puzzling. The performance, however, is more than adequate to make one overlook these shortcomings. If you’re an enthusiast gamer, who doesn’t stream but wants to enjoy the latest games at more than decent frame rates without breaking the bank, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i, in the configuration that we tested, is more than enough. Not once during our gaming sessions or testing sessions did we wonder, if only this machine had more to offer in terms of performance, which, realistically, is all one needs.
