When looking at the exterior design of the new Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i, we will clearly see a complete difference compared to previous versions when this laptop becomes stronger, stronger and much more gaming-like than before. type of ‘powerful office laptop’ as before.
Although the A side retains a simple style with only one solid color and the Lenovo logo, with the curved rear end and protruding from the hinge with the majestic blue radiator slots like a supercar, the IdeaPad Gaming 3i becomes ‘cooler’ and somewhat similar to the more advanced gaming laptop models of the Legion line. The machine weighs about 2.3kg and is in the light form among high-profile 15.6-inch screen laptops.
The layout of the machine’s connection ports is very convenient when most of the ports that need to be plugged in for a long time such as HDMI and power are in the back and do not cause problems for using the mouse. In addition, the USB connection is arranged on both sides of the machine to help users plug in a mouse, keyboard or removable hard drive very easily.
Keyboards on Lenovo laptops are generally of good quality, and the IdeaPad Gaming 3i is clearly no exception. The travel of the button is about 1.3mm, the good bounce gives a very good typing and gaming feeling when you don’t want to plug in a separate key. We have a full-size layout, beautiful RGB backlighting, convenient for both studying or working or playing games in the evening.
The touchpad of the machine is not too wide but just enough to move the mouse pointer comfortably, the surface is smooth with very responsive multi-touch and fully supports the Windows Precision driver for swiping gestures. In general, in case of emergency or a bit difficult, it is good to use, but the game still needs a separate mouse to play well.
Lenovo equips the IdeaPad Gaming 3i with a 15.6-inch gaming-standard screen with very thin borders, sharp 2K (2560×1600) resolution with a smooth 165Hz refresh rate. This makes the experience of high-speed action, shooting or racing games much smoother and more accurate.
Not only that, this monitor also meets the needs of working like 3D editing, video or photo editing with a high-quality IPS panel with 100% sRGB color coverage and 350 nit brightness.
The main highlight of the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i is the latest 12th generation CPU from Intel, on the machine I experienced here is the Core i7 12700H combined with the powerful graphics platform of Nvidia RTX 3060 and 32 GB RAM, High speed SSD. Overall, this powerful configuration provides a very stable user experience.

Going to the heavier game Red Dead Redemption 2 is a bit weak but still plays well:
The power of this machine is largely upgraded from Intel’s Core i7-12700H CPU. The combination of 6 high-performance cores and 8 power-saving cores, 20 processing threads and 4.70Hz (Turbo) clock delivers very impressive results. Users can rest assured that this laptop will work well with heavy games, 3D video editing software, etc., which are very resource-intensive thanks to its ability to automatically allocate application loads with suitable processor cores. based on the AI technology of the Intel Threat Director feature.
