If you want to get your game on at a good price, Walmart has a bargain worth considering. The big box retailer is selling the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 for $749. That’s $100 off the list price.
At the core of this clamshell is the Ryzen 5 5600H. That’s a six-core, twelve thread Zen 3 processor with a maximum boost to 4.2GHz. Lenovo’s also loaded this with 8GB of RAM and a 512GB NVMe SSD.
For graphics, everything is viewed on a 15.6-inch display with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and 1080p resolution. The RTX 3050 is a solid GPU for 1080p gaming usually with medium to high graphics depending on the game. This GPU is also packing real-time ray tracking and deep learning super sampling for an even better visual experience.
This laptop also has 802.11ac Wi-Fi, HDMI out, two standard USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and one Type-C port of the same generation.
It’s a nice little capable laptop for less than $800.
