Following the success of last year’s IdeaPad 3 in the budget category, Lenovo has now launched the 2022 iteration of the laptop in Nepal. So, let’s get into the specs, features, the latest price, and availability of Lenovo IdeaPad 3 (2022) in Nepal.
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 (2022) Overview:
Design and Display
Even on the 2022 model, Lenovo is still sticking to an all-plastic build on the IdeaPad 3. Both the top and bottom of the chassis are made of PC-ABS material. Lenovo offers the laptop in Abyss Blue, Arctic Blue, and Misty Blue color options. However, the availability will depend upon the stock and color.
Over on the display, you can choose between a large 15.6-inch or a compact 14-inch IPS screen. Except for their diagonal length, they share the same set of specs, including brightness levels and color coverage. The two are listed at 30 nits and 45% NTSC, respectively. There is also an option for a touch screen on the 15-inch model, but it is not available in Nepal yet.
Interestingly, the 14 and 15-inch variants of the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 (2022) are of the same thickness. However, the latter is visibly larger and heavier (1.43 kg).
Performance and Memory
Whether you are team blue or team red, there is an IdeaPad 3 (2022) for everyone. Fans of Intel can go with the 12th Gen Core i5-1235U. Based on a new hybrid architecture, it brings a total of 10 CPU cores, which include 2 performance and eight efficiency cores. The performance cores even support Hyper-Threading, which boosts the thread count to 12. Likewise, it boasts a maximum turbo speed of 4.5GHz.
Unfortunately for AMD fans, there is no Ryzen 6000-series CPU this time around. What you get, instead, is the Ryzen 5825U that builds on the last-gen Ryzen 5700U.

Memory and Expansion
Lenovo doesn’t offer discrete graphics on any of its IdeaPad 3 laptops. Likewise, the base variants feature 8GB of soldered RAM. Fortunately, you do get a vacant SO-DIMM slot that you can use to expand the RAM up to 16GB.
Similarly, the company includes a 512GB SSD on all its models, along with a vacant HDD drive for expansion. In more advanced models, the HDD drive is replaced by a second M.2 drive, but you don’t get that in Nepal.
Rest of the Specs
Although the new IdeaPad 3 (2022) is available in both 38Whr and 45Whr batteries, it’s the former that is available in Nepal. It ships with a 65W round-pin charger that can get the laptop up to 80% in just 1 hour with the Rapid Charge feature enabled in the Vantage app.
You can even use the Type-C port on the left to charge the laptop since its supports Power Delivery 3.0. In addition, the laptop has 2x USB, 1x HDMI, 1x combined audio jack, and 1x card reader. Then there is Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 for wireless connectivity.
