Amazon is now offering the 2022 Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 Ryzen 5/8GB/256GB Laptop for $809.99 shipped. Normally going for $900, this $90 discount marks the first price drop we’ve seen for this new gaming laptop. This 15.6-inch gaming laptop packs in an AMD Ryzen 6000 series processor and RTX 3050 graphics to drive its 1080p 120Hz IPS display. You’ll even make the jump to DDR5 memory with this laptop and the battery can recharge 40% in just 15 minutes using Rapid Charge. I/O looks like two USB-A ports, one USB-C with DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 3.0, an HDMI 2.0 output, Ethernet, and an audio jack with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. Head below for more.
The I/O with this laptop is fairly standard with modern laptops but if you want to expand it, the Anker USB-C 7-in-1 Hub is a good starting point at just $28 after clipping the on-page coupon. Over a single USB-C connection, you’ll gain access to two additional USB-A 3.0 ports, a USB-C data port, a micro/SD card reader, an HDMI port, and a USB-C power input with this hub capable of delivering up to 85W of Power Delivery. Weighing less than 5oz, you can toss it into your laptop bag with its scratch-protecting travel pouch so you’re ready to connect gear anytime, anywhere.
The 256GB SSD of the Lenovo laptop above is on the smaller side for a gaming-centric machine as games take up more space than ever before. You can expand it by picking up the 500GB Kingston XS2000 Portable USB-C SSD for $70. This drive is capable of speeds up to 2,000MB/s over this USB-C connection with a 1TB model at the Prime Day price of $108.
