Lenovo isn’t just giving its energy to top of the line laptops at Mobile World Congress 2022. The organization has patched up its IdeaPad Gaming setup with systems focused on relative newcomers to versatile PC interactivity. The AMD-controlled IdeaPad Gaming 3 and Intel-based IdeaPad Gaming 3i both sport 15-and 16-inch screens (remembering a 1600p 165Hz display choice for 16-inch models) and a “more clean” generally speaking design with better port access and further developed cooling to keep them calm. You can also anticipate the latest CPU options, including Ryzen 6000 H-series chips in the Gaming 3 and up to twelfth gen Core for the Gaming 3i.

Your video choices change contingent upon your processor. IdeaPad Gaming 3 buyers should manage with up to GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics, while Gaming 3i buyers can maximize their laptops with either a RTX 3060 or Intel’s Arc. You truly do get to use speedier DDR5 memory in the AMD-based machines where you ‘settle’ for DDR4 in the Intel variants, nonetheless. Both PC families are otherwise practically the same, with support for up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. You’ll must be happy with one USB-C 3.2 port, yet there are two USB-A 3.2 ports as well as HDMI 2.0 and Ethernet.

The 15-inch models debut first, with the IdeaPad Gaming 3i showing up in April with a $990 starting cost. The similarly-sized Gaming 3 surfaces in May for $930. Delay until June and you can purchase the 16-inch versions of either PC, starting at $1,140 for the Gaming 3 and $1,490 for the Gaming 3i. Regardless of the PC you own, there’s a $100 Legion M600s Qi mouse (shown at center) due in September that promises a 19,000DPI sensor, “lossless” Bluetooth and USB connections, RGB lighting and its namesake Qi wireless charging.
And yes, there are some nearly standard IdeaPads for those less interested in gaming than innovativeness. The IdeaPad Flex 5 and Flex 5i (beneath) convertible laptops respectively use AMD Ryzen 5000 U-series and Intel twelfth gen Core U-series processors while coming in 14-and 16-inch variants. They’re more slender and lighter than their predecessors with weight starting at 3.3lbs. You can splurge for a 1800p OLED screen with the 14-inch Flex 5i, yet everybody has the choice of moving up to 1400p (14-inch models) or 1600p (16-inch) LCDs on the off chance that the default 1200p display isn’t sufficient.
Both refreshed 2-in-1 laptops are quite more reasonable than their gaming-focused siblings. The Flex 5i is the most reasonable of the two, and will show up in May starting at $620 for a 14-inch version and $900 for the 16-inch release. Choose the Flex 5 and you’ll find a higher $690 starting cost when it ships in May, however a low $750 section point for its 16-inch partner.
