If you are looking to save both space AND cash, this Thermaltake case is the way to go. It has a unique aesthetic and sports transparent panels. It has room for graphics cards up to 285mm, CPU coolers up to 140mm, and room for a standard ATX power supply (which are incredibly affordable).
While this stylish case only supports up to 320mm graphics cards, it does support those that need three expansion slots. It has room for lots of different CPU coolers, and even 240mm radiators for liquid cooling, as well as three 2.5-inch drives.
The Phanteks Eclipse P200A enables ITX builds that are closer to standard, which is why this one looks so much like a traditional PC tower. Because it is a bit larger than other mini ITX cases, you can use more standard components. Bring your ATX power supply, and use up to 3-slot graphics cards that are up to 355mm long.
This cube-like case allows you to be a bit more flexible with part selection. By enabling ITX and even Micro ATX builds, you can choose from a greater array of standard components, including graphics cards, coolers, and power supplies. This should all help make building your modern gaming rig significantly less expensive too.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 (2021) is a budget Windows ultraportable laptop. It's available with AMD Ryzen 5000 U-series CPUs, integrated graphics, up to 16GB of memory, and over 1TB of storage. You can choose between a TN or IPS display; they're both 1080p 60Hz panels with no variable refresh rate support. It has a 720p webcam, a Wi-Fi 5 wireless adapter, and a 48Wh battery. Its port selection includes two USB-As, a USB-C, an HDMI 1.4, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The USB-C port doesn't support video output or charging. You can see more details about the configurations in the Differences Between Variants section below.
We tested the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 (model 82KU00YQUS) with a 1080p touch-sensitive IPS display, an AMD Ryzen 3 5300U CPU, AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 integrated graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. The display, CPU, GPU, memory, storage, and color are configurable; you can see the options in the table below. There are many Lenovo IdeaPad 3 models, so to avoid confusion, our review applies only to variants with a model number starting with '82KU'.
A 1080p resolution looks decently sharp on a 15.6-inch screen. You can see the individual pixels at normal viewing distances, but it's not too bad. Its 16:9 aspect ratio is great for media consumption since most videos are in the same format, although a 16:10 or 3:2 aspect ratio would have been better for productivity, as the increased vertical space lets you see more text when reading a document or website, meaning you won't have to scroll as much. For the best viewing experience, it's best to get a model with an IPS panel because TN panels usually have worse viewing angles and color reproduction.
The webcam's video quality is decent. It captures some fine details like the writing on the bottle or the cards, but the whole image is overexposed, making colors appear washed out. The microphone sounds good overall; however, it's a bit quiet, and there's some static in the background. The privacy cover is only a physical switch and doesn't deactivate the camera at the software level, so it can still record audio when shut. Lastly, Lenovo's specifications indicate there's a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera to log in via facial recognition, but the feature isn't available when we tried activating it in Windows.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 with an AMD Ryzen 3 5300U performs well in Cinebench R23's CPU rendering test. That said, if you do rendering work professionally, there are much faster CPUs on the market that are more suitable, like the Intel and AMD H-series processors and Apple's in-house ARM-based silicon. Upgrading to the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U or the Ryzen 7 5700U will give you better performance overall, but they still won't match the H-series CPUs found in mobile workstations and gaming laptops.
The performance in CS:GO is middling. It doesn't quite reach 60fps at 1080p with high settings, and the frame rate frequently drops into the 20s, causing noticeable stutters. However, you can get much smoother gameplay if you turn the graphical settings down to minimum. The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U and the Ryzen 7 5700U will perform better, but not by much.

Let's take a look at the exact same scene, rendered at 1080p with no ray-tracing effects, and then again at 4k with full ray tracing. In our GPU tests, we saw this scene get limited by the CPU. Every GPU we tested came back with the exact same frame rates. So taking those settings at applying them to various CPUs, we can see what effect the CPU has on the max FPS possible. 2b1af7f3a8
