Price and other buying details
The price of the Lenovo Ideapad Slim 3 starts from Rs.26,990. As per specifications, it can go up to Rs.40,990. It is currently available on Amazon, Lenovo exclusive stores, and on lenovo.com. It has two colour variations- Abyss Blue, Platinum Grey, and Cherry Red.
The price might seem a little too much at once if you need a new laptop immediately. However, that should not make you compromise on the brand or the quality you buy. You can always get this by using laptop on EMI with 0% interest.
As is clear by the name, the Lenovo Ideapad Slim 3 is a slim, sleek laptop. You can buy it with either a 14 inches or 15 inches full High Definition display size. It weighs close to 1.6 kgs, which makes portability a huge plus with this model. This slim laptop is 19.9mm thin and comes with thin bezels on 3 sides of the screen, optimizing the display area. As depicted here, the laptop is flexible upto 180 degrees when extended from its hinge.
It is fuelled by Intel’s 10th Gen Intel Core processors. Having these top-of-the-line processors in a mid-range laptop is surely a steal at this point. You can also choose to have an AMD Ryzen processor instead. It comes with hybrid SSD and HDD storage options. There is an innovative option called the Q-Control Technology with which you can swap between Stealth Mode and Max Mode. Max Mode is for the best CPU performance, while Stealth Mode is for a quieter usage. The slim laptop has 12GB of DDR4 RAM and 1TB HDD, upto 256GB SSD storage. Even if you weren’t thinking about buying a new laptop but are tempted to check out laptops on EMI options, we won’t blame you.
Other key features

Mi is also about to launch its ‘Notebook Horizon Edition’ marking its entry into the laptop space. If you really want to compare, you might want to wait and check it out too. However, there will definitely be apprehension about a new entrant in the space.
According to a statement by Lenovo, the Ideapad Slim 3 has “unmatched speed, intuitive design and excellent security”. And we would trust them because Lenovo has always proved to be a reliable brand with its top-quality laptops and phones as well. Portability in becoming increasingly important for laptops and this new slim laptop can be a good solution to your old, bulky laptop. If you are ready for this swanky new laptop, but perhaps not for its price, you can always fall back on Tata Capital’s Consumer Durable Loans and buy the laptop on EMI. These loans will give you an EMI option with tenures as flexible as 6 months to 24 months.
