Great deal for a low-spec gaming laptop.
I got this laptop for $650 dollars. At first I thought it might be a scam or something because there's only like 10 reviews.

Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3i review
Thermals can get hot to 95 and 75 degrees Celsius in the CPU and GPU respectively but no signs of thermal throttling. Upgradeability - Opening the Laptop reveals two SODIMM slots with the first one using an 8GB DDR4 3200MHZ by Samsung. There is also a slot for a 2.5" drive bay that you can use for a cheap hard drive or another SSD or you could unscrew the drive bay to reveal a slot for another M.2 SSD.
Heya people, about 3 months ago i bought myself a new laptop, a Lenovo Ideapad 3 Gaming, with a Ryzen 5 4600H with an Nvidia GTX 1650 GDDR6. I installed Archlinux with KDE. I love this laptop (replaced my desktop due to me moving out of the country and not wanting to take a ginormous PC with me).
So basically I got the lenovo ideapad gaming 3 with the intel i5 10300h and gtx 1650. But today I realised that my games haven't been using the gpu at all and rather used the igpu. Thats probably the reason why this laptop got hot. Now i did a lotta stuff i could to get this to atleast switch to the dedicated gpu but none worked out.
A strong processor and fast SSD don’t make up for a weak GPU
In terms of performance, the laptop started to chug when I pushed its 8GB of RAM to the limits with too many Chrome tabs and Affinity Photo projects. Lenovo confirmed to me that both the RAM and M.2 SSD storage can be upgraded by unscrewing the bottom shell of the laptop, so at least you can remedy this issue yourself if you choose
