Gaming doesn't have to be expensive: Low-priced entry with Lenovo's IdeaPad L340 and GeForce GTX graphics

Lenovo's IdeaPad convinces with Full HD gaming and a low price.

If you're looking for a cheap gaming laptop from Lenovo and don't have excessively high requirements, you can have fun with games in Full HD for less than 800 Euros (~$872). However, minor weaknesses must also be accepted with the price.

Depending on the configuration variant, a laptop from Lenovo's Legion series will cost at least 1,000 Euros (~$1,093). The decision to offer a cheaper laptop for less enthusiastic players is obvious. With the Lenovo IdeaPad L340-15IRH Gaming, such a low-cost laptop is available, which also excelled in our review with solid performance. 

The case isn't defined by great RGB lighting, but offers a rather plain design instead, which was adopted from the Lenovo V155 with the exception of the choice of materials. Due to the lack of high-end hardware, the L340-15IRH Gaming is also significantly quieter than more expensive gaming devices.

In addition, there are good maintenance options, a contrast-rich display and a solid keyboard with backlighting. Smaller weaknesses, such as the mediocre ClickPad and a slightly below-average Wi-Fi performance, can definitely be overcome. The same applies to the range of ports, which only includes the most necessary ones.

So if you don't need the highest graphics settings all the time, the Lenovo IdeaPad L340-15IRH Gaming can also run modern games in Full HD, without you having to pay a high price for it. For more details on Lenovo's low-cost gaming laptop, see our full review.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.
