For what’s it worth, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i is a well-rounded gaming laptop with an accessible price tag. It misses out on a high-refresh-rate and color-accurate display, and makes do with sub-par speakers. However, for what it costs, the IdeaPad Gaming 3i offers good gaming performance, classy design with solid build quality, and decent battery life (for a gaming laptop). The keyboard is an added bonus for those who would like to use this for work as well

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i Review

The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i is a jack of all trades, master of none. This budget gaming laptop is quite capable for its specs and its price. Productivity isn't going to be a problem for the majority of basic office work. It can do some light photo and video editing and some light rendering. It looks premium enough to fit in quite well in those use cases. As for gaming, it'll handle most fighting games and light shooters like Valorant, CS:GO, and maybe Overwatch. You can still play some of the more graphically intensive games like Apex Legends, but at a frame rate cost. For big-budget triple-A titles, the experience won't be the best, but they'll be very, very playable.
