Entry Level Core i5 Laptops in Kenya
Most entry level Core i5 laptops will still perform better than the majority of Core i3 laptops, and the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 is no different. The IdeaPad is thin and light making it easy to carry around. An HD display of 1366 x 768 could have been better if it were 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), but there are other redeeming features that you get. First is the massive storage at 1 TB, giving you ample space to store your media. You also get a 720p camera for video conferencing and Zoom meetings. The battery life in this particular model is also impressive with normal usage topping out at 7 hours. Get the IdeaPad 3 here at an affordable price.
