The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 line of laptops were made as a budget option for those looking to game on the go. The company has refreshed the line as part of MWC 2022, giving it a 16:10 aspect ratio option as well.
But let’s start from the top. The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 and 3i comes with both AMD and Intel processors, respectively. Both come in the standard 15-inch model as well as the 16-inch model which sports the 16:10 aspect ratio.
Regardless of size, we’re looking at gaming laptops that can have up to an Intel Core i7-12700H processor, or up to an AMD Ryzen 7 6800H processor. RAM options go up to 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4, and storage goes up to 1TB via an M.2 PCIe 4 SSD.
Graphics is where your choices can be limited, depending on which processor you take. For the Intel model, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i can have up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, as well as the option to use the Intel Arc graphics instead. Though for the AMD model, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 goes up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti instead.
The 15-inch model of Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 and 3i laptops will have their prices start from EUR999 (~RM4692). The Intel models are expected to shop starting in May of this year, while the AMD models will come a month later.
As for the 16-inch models with the 16:10 aspect ratio, these start from EUR1099 (~RM5162). Their availability will be a month after their smaller counterparts. These may not necessarily apply to us, and Lenovo says it will be announcing local pricing and availability at a later date.
