Simple, Sleek and Solid Build

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15 (82K20015US) Design

The IdeaPad Gaming 3's design is simple and suitable for an entry-level gaming laptop; it is not particularly noteworthy. The subtle shadow black design is fantastic. I prefer it over one that is overly designed and uses extravagant embellishments to make up for its under-$1000 pricing. The design is generally understated and unoffensive, with the exception of a few slanted edges and lid lines that offer elegance.

Despite being entirely made of plastic, the structure is strong and devoid of any flex or weak spots, which is advantageous given the product's price. The complete unit is 4.9 pounds and measures 0.95 by 14.1 by 9.9 inches (HWD).  

Even if it doesn't quite equal the thinnest and most expensive gaming laptops, like the Razer Blade 15 (0.7-inch thick, 4.6 pounds), or the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (a 14-inch laptop that weighs just 3.52 pounds), this is still a respectably small and portable device.

For gamers, the 120Hz refresh rate and full HD resolution should be plenty. The Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU prevents you from maxing out most games at 120 frames per second (fps), but you can still achieve high frame rates on multiplayer games that aren't as resource-intensive at lesser settings (or at least reach 60 fps).

So, all in all, it's an excellent inclusion. Once more, full HD is more appropriate for the system's limited power because it offers faster frame rates than 1440p or 4K.

Comfortable Typing and Lots of Ports

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15 (82K20015US) Keyboard

The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15 laptop features a high-quality keyboard, much like the chassis construction. However, it is not unexpected that Lenovo has a fondness for soft keyboards, and the Ideapad 3's keyboard is no exception.

We're talking about finely sculpted keys with adequate travel that don't feel shaky or mushy. Additionally, each zone is lighted differently, creating a pleasing glow.

Less can be said about the touchpad, however it is responsive and stable despite being positioned further to the left of the chassis than in the middle.

We look at the ports as the final aspect of the outside design. A USB 3.1 Type-A port, a USB-C port, an HDMI connection, an Ethernet port, and a headphone jack are all located on the left side of the chassis. The right side includes a second USB 3.1 port, which is pretty much it.

We will now examine the components and performance. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, 8GB DDR4 RAM, and 256GB SSD storage are all included in our test device, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15 (82K20015US). Even though Lenovo advertises the IdeaPad Gaming 3 as a contemporary gaming laptop, the storage capacity isn't awful for a cheap gaming laptop.

As a result, you might need to be selective about which of your favorite games you install. Once more, as you'll see, the GPU is just moderately powerful, but it performs admirably when compared to several entry- to midrange competitors.

The 82K20015US stands out as a powerful gaming laptop that will allow you to play contemporary games at 1080p and medium settings thanks to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 GPU. The GTX 1650 graphics card is the entry-level model of Nvidia's 2019 gaming GPUs, which were released alongside the RTX 20-Series models. Raytracing and Tensor cores are not present in the GTX 1650, in contrast to its more expensive brothers (RTX 3070 & RTX 3080).

Even so, it performs better than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards from last year. Far Cry New Dawn produces 55 frames per second when played at high settings and 1080p resolution, however the same game produces 56 frames per second when played at medium settings. The pixel loss increases as you switch to ultra settings, with a maximum frame rate of 55 fps.

The IdeaPad 3 15 renders Hitman 3 at 1080p with a mix of medium and high settings at 61 frames per second. That's a little better because it exceeds the 37-fps average for a gaming laptop that's just getting started.

A Battery's Life 

The IdeaPad 3 outperforms most competitors in terms of battery life, among its many strengths. The battery life will greatly decrease if you are playing games without a charger, but for normal use, it should last for most of the day. Rapid Charges, another feature offered by Lenovo, refuels the laptop more quickly than usual.
