Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 15IRU8

The Appeal Of This Modest And Utilitarian Lenovo Ideapad Laptop Hinges On Its Price
Source: USA Today English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i 15 is an effective, utilitarian machine, and there’s plenty to get out of it in that respect. It has enough pep to coast through light, everyday computing tasks. It’s a pleasure to type on and is easy on the eyes thanks to a bright, anti-glare screen. But it doesn’t have much performance headroom, and it won’t be up to the task for more demanding applications. So don’t consider this machine if you’re looking for an affordable workstation. And, even though the display gets plenty bright, it produces drab and dull colors. Even a bump to 100% sRGB color coverage would benefit it dramatically. Last year’s Asus ZenBook 14 OLED showed just what a lower-cost laptop display could look like. By contrast, Lenovo’s machine is a slab of somewhat cheap-feeling plastic. Its battery life could also be better. At $660, it’s just $100 shy of a frequently discounted Apple MacBook Air M1, which is a battery-life behemoth and has the edge on portability and build quality.

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.
