Lenovo has announced the IdeaPad Slim 3, a new thin and light laptop that’s affordable and comes packed with the latest set of hardware and connectivity features. As more people are currently working from home or studying with the help of online classes, the need for a laptop as an essential commodity has increased in the past two to three months owing to the Coronavirus crisis.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 is equipped with 10th generation Intel processors with hybrid storage options and latest connectivity features such as WiFi 6. The Slim 3 is an attempt by Lenovo to aid users with reliable laptops that they can depend on for their daily work and also for entertainment needs.
The IdeaPad 3 comes just a day before the launch of the much-awaited Mi NoteBook Horizon Edition which marks the entry of Xiaomi into the laptop space in India. Lenovo also teased its upcoming range of laptops including the IdeaPad Slim 5, IdeaPad Gaming 3 and Yoga Slim 7i and these notebooks will be announced in the coming months.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 is available in 14-inch and 15-inch Full HD display sizes. The laptop weighs around 1.6 kilograms and is 19.9 mm thin and has narrow bezels on three sides.
The IdeaPad Slim 3 is powered by 10th generation Intel Core processors with hybrid SSD and HDD storage option. It comes with two USB 3.1 ports for fast data transfer between connected devices. The power button doubles up as a fingerprint sensor and the webcam has a dedicated privacy shutter that disables the camera when you don’t need it.
Lenovo claims that the IdeaPad Slim 3 can deliver up to 8.5 hours worth of battery life on a single charge but we’ll have to test the laptop to really know for sure how it holds up against the claim.
As for the pricing, the IdeaPad Slim 3 is priced starting at Rs 26,990 and goes up to Rs 40,990. It is available in Platinum Grey, Abyss Blue and Cherry Red colour options to choose from. The IdeaPad Slim 3 is available to purchase from Amazon India, Lenovo India store and Lenovo Exclusive offline stores.
