Lenovo makes laptops for budget gamers under the IdeaPad Gaming lineup, which has failed to gain much traction as its Legion series. Lenovo looks to turn this around with the 2022 edition of the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming, which now comes with a Legion-inspired design and the latest gaming components from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. In this article, we will discuss the latest price and availability of the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022) in Nepal.
Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022) Overview:
Design and Display
Compared to last year’s model, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022) has went through a visual revamp. The most noticeable one is the hinge. Unlike the long vertical hinge, the display now rests on two distinct pedestals. Lenovo has expanded the space behind the hinge to accommodate two exhaust vents and a few ports.
There are two more exhaust vents, one on each side of the laptop. It is not hard to notice since all four vents now have a light blue accent – a color most associated with the Legion brand. That said, the all-plastic chassis of the IdeaPad Gaming 3 doesn’t feel as premium as its Legion sibling.
Lenovo offers the laptop in two screen sizes: 15.6-inch and 16-inch. As of now, you can only grab the former in Nepal. It brings FHD resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and 100% sRGB coverage.
Keyboard, Webcam, Audio
The IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2022) features a full-size keyboard with dedicated Function keys and a numeric keypad. You can be creative with the backlit as Lenovo offers options for single color (White / Blue) and 4-Zone RGB. Accompanying it is a plastic touchpad with Windows Precision drivers.
The small protrusion on top of the display is home to a 720 HP camera, privacy shutter, and dual array microphone. Likewise, the laptop also has a stereo speaker setup with Nahimic Audio.
