If you need a new PC but don’t want to spend more than a cheap Chromebook, we’ve got the deal you’ve been waiting for. Walmart sells a 15.6-inch Lenovo IdeaPad 3 with a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor, an insanely low price for a laptop that typically sells for hundreds more.
First the bad news: this laptop’s display has a resolution of 1366 x 768, which is technically HD, but not full 1080p HD. But that’s really the only downside. Otherwise, the processor is a very powerful dual-core four-thread “Ice Lake” Core i3-1005G1 with a base frequency of 1.2 GHz with a boost of up to 3.4 GHz. For RAM, this laptop rocks 8 GB and has a 256 GB NVMe SSD with TLC nand. Other nice features include two 1.5 watt speakers, 802.11ac WiFi and the webcam has a privacy screen to keep snoopers out of your life. It’s also very portable at just over four pounds.
And while it runs with Windows 10 S by default, you can do a one-way upgrade to regular Windows 10 to download and install desktop apps. We’d like this laptop for $ 499, but for under $ 300, it’s an easy choice.
