Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 15ABR8

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 (15, Gen 8) review – decent unpretentious budget daily driver
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 (15″, Gen 8) is a good laptop for daily tasks or normal office usage if you pick a device with the optional IPS display (LEN156FHD (LEN9052)). It has wide viewing angles and a good contrast ratio of 1410:1. The panel is also PWM-free which is great. The sRGB coverage is low but that’s okay given the end price of the notebook. The build quality isn’t that good. Both lid and base can be flexed badly and you can spot a lot of bends even while typing. However, the notebook is thin and light for a 15-incher. It has a profile of 17.9 mm and the starting weight is 1.62 kg. The I/O is fine for such a device – three USB’s and an SD card reader. Sadly, all ports are rated at 5 Gbps. The memory is soldered and the maximum possible amount of 16GB DDR4-3200MHz RAM should be enough for most users, at least for now. Keep in mind that the RAM of the 8GB iterations works in single-channel mode.

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.
