Also on deck is a seemingly potent budget rig, the IdeaPad Gaming 3. Yes, another one: Lenovo released an Intel-powered laptop with a very similar name earlier this year. If you can get past the nomenclature, you’ll find a machine with a 15.6-inch, full HD display you can trick out with the Ryzen 7 4800H, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU, up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. (That’s right, you can squeeze more RAM into this thing than the Legion 5.)

For those with a little more wiggle room in their budget, bumping that standard display up to a 120Hz panel is an option, though Lenovo hasn’t confirmed to us exactly how much that screen swap will cost. Cost-conscious gamers may wind up skipping out on that, though, especially since its base price is tantalizing as-is: These AMD models will go on sale this month starting at $660.
