Back when I was in high school buying a budget laptop usually meant that it gonna be solid, heavy, old-fashioned, thick, heavy, and having a mediocre performance at best.

But that was the past, and no longer in today’s time case.

Today when you buy a laptop of budget mid-range, low-range laptop, you usually get a lot of value and popular to say that Lenovo bears testament to that how far a budget laptop has really come to advancement.

With so many laptops to choose from, selecting the best one to fit your budget can be like navigating a minefield. 

Even making sense of the ever-changing list of product specifications is no easy feat.

Laptops vary greatly by CPU speed, graphics capability, size, drive storage, and RAM, among other things.

What’s more, your laptop needs may be completely different to someone else’s, only adding to the confusion.

For some, a flashy 4K screen may be important. Others may want a high-performing CPU, like AMD’s new Ryzen 6000 processors, to give them a competitive edge in games.

Getting value for money can be tricky too since newer technologies don’t always mean better performance. For example, older-generation CPUs can sometimes outperform newer products in benchmark tests.

But does the new IdeaPad Slim 3i have what it takes to meet your productivity requirements?

Well, stick around to find out.

The first thing you see in a laptop is the processor.

The processor of Lenovo Ideapad slim 3i

It was having 11th gen i5 processor with 8GB of RAM, which is more than enough for multitasking and decent gaming.

Camera/Webcam of Lenovo Ideapad slim 3i

The one thing that was not acceptable with that price range was the webcam. The quality was very poor. It may not be a very good option for meetings or group calls.

Storage of Lenovo Ideapad slim 3i

With the 256GB SSD to go with it, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i gets the advantage of faster access to software, which makes everything better as you use it.

In comparison, the HP Laptop 14s would feel a tad sluggish when pushed to the same limits because it comes with a 1TB hard drive instead, which is slower.

Example of Power

That being said, this is an Intel Core i3 processor at play and that would have some limitations with multitasking at some point, such as leaving too many Google Chrome tabs open.
