After their official announcement at CES 2023 back in January, Ada Lovelace-powered gaming laptops have finally hit the market. Although the majority of these devices are launched at somewhat inflated prices, one of the more affordable RTX 4050 options from the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 series has now received a significant discount.
In this case, popular retailer antonline is selling the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration with an 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 dGPU with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 85W effective TGP for $1,099 including free shipping. This deal brings in $177 or 14 percent in savings, which certainly isn’t much compared to other gaming laptop deals, but it makes for one of the first decent discounts for the all-new Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3.
In addition to the above specs, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration has 16GB of DDR5-4800 memory along with a 512GB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. As expected, gaming laptops in this price range still feature fairly basic screens, in this case a 120Hz 1080p IPS display with a peak brightness of 250 nits and only 45% coverage of the NTSC color space. Therefore, this deal is best suited for gamers who definitely want to experience one of the latest CPU and GPU combinations, but can live with a dim and colorless screen due to the primary use of an external display.
