All in all, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i is a pretty powerful device but fails to make a definite mark. It has a powerful chipset that can handle heavy loads but is held back by its UHD graphics. On the other hand, that same powerful chipset limits its battery life which is a very important resource for a general user. Therefore, this product is in this weird limbo state where it is neither powerful enough for heavy users nor efficient enough for ultrabook enthusiasts. That being said, the powerful processor is a good bet for future-proofing your machine. So, if you want a long-lasting laptop that won’t slow down any time soon, this might be a good choice. In conclusion, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i ticks a lot of the boxes for a value-for-money budget notebook. With a powerful processor and a decent build quality, it is a recommendation for those seeking for a long-term companion.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

74%: 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.
