Following their official announcement at CES 2023 back in January, Ada Lovelace-powered gaming laptops are finally hitting the market. Although the majority of these machines launch at fairly high prices, one of the more affordable RTX 4050 options from the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 series has now received a notable discount.
In this case, the reputable retailer antonline is selling the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration with the AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS octa-core processor and the aforementioned Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 dGPU with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM and an effective TGP of $85,099 with free shipping. This deal offers US$177 or 14 percent in savings, which certainly isn’t much compared to other recent gaming laptop deals, but it represents one of the very first decent discounts for the brand new Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3.
In addition to the above specifications, this Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration has 16 GB DDR5-4800 memory as well as a 512 GB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. As expected, gaming laptops in this price range still have fairly basic displays, in this case a 120Hz 1080p IPS display with a maximum brightness of 250 nits and only 45% of the NTSC color space coverage. Therefore, this deal is best suited for gamers who definitely want to try one of the latest CPU and GPU combinations, but can live with a rather weak and colorless display due to the primary use of an external monitor.

My fascination with technology goes way back to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and taxing computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful university life so much easier. After falling in love with digital content creation while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of technology. Outside the office, I am particularly passionate about motorsport and mountain biking.
