This new 17incher laptop was introduced quietly yesterday...
https://www.lenovo.com/sg/en/laptops/ideapad/s-series/IdeaPad-3-17IML05/p/81WCCTO1WWENSG0
...in Lenovo's website. The slow launch is probably to avoid lots of attention
from potential big screen buyers such that production can be fulfilled smoothly as according to projected delivery period advised.


This biggie is priced about the same when i bought my L340-17IWL,
however the basic configuration comes with better CPU if compared to my model then... 6mths ago.

Back to the topic.
Currently, when it comes to big screen options, buyer will likely hv to look at
gaming device or workstations which packs dedicated GPUs for it's respective purpose.
However, some users are not gamers, so as Architects as well... They just need big screens to do other jobs, especially multi-jobs at the same time, without the need for dedicated GPUs.

For the latter, if there wasn't any new, budget priced big screen options in the market,
most likely they have to go for refurbished sets, such as those offered by DELL...

...or those offered by parallel importers on old makes that doesn't warrantied by the manufacturers.

*with Ryzen 3 CPU spec'ed, this same model can go as low as $800!

Currently the Taiwanese makers and U.S companies are selling their biggies cheap or
same priced as the slightly smaller build of the same series such that buyers can make their choice.
While in local market, they're still juicing ignorant consumers by sending BS message to them like,
"the big models are lesser produced"!

Hopefully with this continual move by industry's biggest maker from China,
the others should wake up and not taking consumers as fools!
