The large affordable notebooks are still best sellers on the market. Although they don’t offer the cutting edge of technology, they can provide everything you will ever need for your daily computer needs. This is why the IdeaPad Slim 3 (16″, 2023) is such a good product. We are really impressed by its port selection. It includes only fast USBs and the USB Type-C port even offers Power Delivery and DisplayPort output functionality. The SD card reader is only here to sweeten the deal. Yes, there are some features that we don’t like. For example, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. On top of that, if you opt for 8GB, you will get it in single-channel mode, which will cripple the graphics performance. Speaking of which, even the Ryzen 3 7330U has enough power to get you through any load you throw at it.

AMD Vega 6: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1,500 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R3 7330U: Mobile quad core APU using Zen 3 cores clocked at 2.3 to 4.3 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1800 MHz. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
