Deal | Lenovo's IdeaPad Gaming 3 budget laptop with RTX 3050 gets a huge 39% discount on Amazon
The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming series of laptops is a popular choice among budget-conscious gamers who can't or don't want to spend considerably more money on the higher-tier Legion machines. In this case, the RTX-3050 powered model is one of the most affordable variants of the current 2022 Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3, which has now received its largest discount to date in Amazon's ongoing Black Friday sales event.
More specifically, Amazon currently sells the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration with the quick AMD Ryzen 5 6600H hexa-core processor and the aforementioned Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 with 4GB of VRAM and a peak TGP of 85 watts for just US$549, which constitutes a steep US$350 or 39% discount in relation to the original list price of US$899. This gaming laptop is further equipped with 8GB of DDR5 memory and a 256GB SSD, but both components can be upgraded quite easily. According to the price tracker at Camelcamelcamel, this is Amazon's cheapest price ever for this particularly budget-friendly Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration.
For further information on the performance of the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3, please refer to our comprehensive review from earlier this year. Among other things, we praised the standard 1080p base panel with a quick 120Hz refresh rate and the stable performance. We also liked the gaming laptop's slim 170W charging brick and the comparatively low starting price. At its massively discounted Black Friday sale price on Amazon, the RTX 3050-powered Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 should arguably be on top of the list of prospective buyers who have a budget of roughly US$500 for their brand-new 15-inch gaming notebook.
