Design & How great is the Build?
There are not many things different in the outer look of the Lenovo Ideapad 3, and it seems like most of the typical laptops.

The body is not thick, but not thin at all for what it feels, and you may call it in between of both.
The material can be easily found out as plastic, but it is quite robust and sturdy for accidental drop or bumps. The entire shape of the laptop is rectangular, but the rounded corners make it more common like many others. There are number of ports that are added in this laptop including USB Type C port as well. For security, Lenovo has added webcam shutter so there is zero chance of any hacker to get into your private space.
On the ports side, there are HDMI, USB Type A and B ports as well as Ethernet jack and SD card for expandable storage option.
Display – Average or Above?
There are some factors in the display that can be criticized in detail but if we compare them with the price factor, there shouldn’t be much to complain. The 1080p pixel display is enough for full HD Resolution and 14-inch screen is a medium size for most of the people. The maximum brightness of the screen rounds up to be approximately 250 nits, which isn’t worse. It wasn’t the best, but many average laptops in this cost have even the lowest levels of brightness.
