Lenovo IdeaPad 300 Review

If you are looking for a laptop that is both solid and easy on your pocket, then your search should stop at the Lenovo IdeaPad 330-15ARR. It is ideal for the people who want to work on the go.

The 15-inch laptop from the Chinese PC maker, Lenovo, comes equipped with AMD Ryzen 3 2200U processor, unlike other budget-friendly laptops in the same price range. But these two aren’t the only features of IdeaPad 330.



Here’s a low down on everything that this machine has to offer to you.

Build and design

The device is made of plastic, but it gets its metallic look from the matte-like finish. The laptop at 2.1 kilograms is heavy which some may find difficult to carry.

A plastic hinge covers the width of the display while a thick black bezel runs around its sides. Due to the thick plastic hinge, the laptop can folds back to 180 degrees, a useful feature when working on a bed.

Trackpad and Keyboard

This windows laptop comes with multi-touch trackpad present below the keyboard. The trackpad, which is of the same color as the surface around it, supports multi-touch gestures.

About the keyboard, IdeaPad 330 comes in options of a 6-row keyboard or a numeric keypad. It also offers an option of a backlit keyboard that can help you work in dim light.

Sound Performance

The IdeaPad 330 is powered by two 2W speakers. The speaker is good for a small room but does not work well in the outdoors or a crowded area. The windows laptop also comes with a 3.5mm combo audio jack, which you can use to connect a headphone.

Ports

Talking about the ports, IdeaPad comes with one USB Type-C 3.1 port and two USB 3.0. There is an HDMI port through which you can connect an external display. Besides, there is a charging port, an ethernet port and a Kensington lock port that allows you to lock your laptop with your table.

Battery

Ideapad 300 has a battery life of up to 6 hours, as per Lenovo. It also has three variants for the battery – a 30WH, 35WH, and 45WH. A 30Wh battery comes with a life of 5.5 hours while 35Wh has a battery life of 6 hours.

The Chinese PC maker has also added Rapid Charge capability in which you will get a 90W charger with your device that will provide you a 2 hours battery by simply charging for 15 minutes.

Processor

The windows laptop is powered with an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U, a mobile processor, and is coupled with 8GB RAM. There is also an option of adding more.

For this, you will have to replace the 4GB DIMM stick with a high-capacity RAM. The other variants of the laptop come with 16GB RAM and have the option to further better the performance by adding a 16GB Intel Optane memory.

After checking out all the technical details of the laptop, it depends on the usage of the individual that will decide whether the laptop is a good fit for you or not.
