74.6% Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14IGL05 Laptop Review: Too cheap to be perfect | Notebookcheck
With the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14IGL05, Lenovo is testing the limits: How cheap can a laptop be? The Lenovo IdeaPad retails for 300 Euros (~$353), and we notice it at every step in our review. We cannot recommend this Lenovo laptop.

77.5% Lenovo IdeaPad 1 11ADA05 in the review: Hand-held | Notebookcheck
Lenovo's 11.6-incher does not have a convincing hardware configuration on board. However, the device offers silent operation, a one-year MS Office 365 Personal license and a low price level (279 Euros/~$337). Windows 10 Home in S mode serves as the operating system.

Lenovo IdeaPad 1 (14″) quick review – one of the most affordable laptops with Windows 10
Source: Laptop Media English
Affordable devices will always leave something to be desired. In this case, the laptop is made out of a rather inexpensive plastic, which makes the body soft, and prone to twists. Additionally, the situation around the storage is a real bummer. Well, there is a chance it’s not, but for that, you have to scratch the 64GB base option from the equation. In addition to that, the keyboard is the next strong point. It offers long key travel and clicky feedback. Pretty much the Holy Grail of keyboard comfort. And although there is no USB Type-C port to be found, you get a MicroSD card slot, an HDMI connector, and two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports. Alas, it is possible to make a super affordable laptop without sacrificing USB speed. Thanks, Lenovo for showing that. On the other hand, the biggest downside of this notebook is its display. However, when the price starts at only $250, you can’t expect anything different. That doesn’t make the 768p TN display look any better, but if this is the sacrifice you have to make to own a laptop, so be it.

75% Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14 (81VU0079US) Review
Source: Tech burns English
If you search for the cheapest device in Lenovo’s line-up, you’ll find the IdeaPad 1 14 laptop. It uses the some of the most affordable components currently available in the market – an intel Celeron chip, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD storage and a middling HD TB display – but still manages to wow in design and reliable performance on basic tasks. Its keyboard is rather good, the Ice Blue color contrasted with black keys on the keyboard looks great, and because there’s no fan, it runs completely during operation. The battery life is equally great, adding more reason why you should consider it, especially if shopping on a tight budget. That said, if all you need is a super-cheap way to get your online fix then the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 81VU0079US is an ideal budget laptop. It’s reliable, comfy to use and will handle all your day-to-day browsing and video watching needs with ease – it can even be used as a work laptop and is definitely a perfect first laptop for school.

Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14
Source: PC Mag English
The IdeaPad 1 14 is a simple machine, but it’s well-designed and has nearly everything you’d expect from a no-nonsense laptop that allows you to check emails and get schoolwork or other light tasks done with relative ease. A "true" 128GB SSD (as opposed to an eMMC drive) and a roomy 14-inch full HD display are arguably the star attractions, with the comfortable keyboard and reasonably modern styling playing important backup roles. The only things potentially missing from this fine budget laptop are USB-C ports and a more capable Ryzen or Core processor. For the latter, you’ll need to step up to the MSI Modern 14, which is currently our top pick in the budget-laptop category. But if you need to shed another $100 or $150 from your spend versus the Modern 14, this is one of the best picks in its price zone.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 605: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 505, the 605 offers improved display outputs.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Vega 3: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 3 CUs (= 192 shaders) and a clock of up to 1200 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Gemini Lake:

Pentium N5030: Low power quad-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-3.1 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. The 5030 is the refresh of the older Pentium 5000 and offers a 400 MHz higher Boost clock.

Celeron N4020: A lower-end dual-core SoC of the Gemini Lake Refresh product family designed for affordable laptops and mini-PCs. The Celeron is clocked at 1.1 GHz to 2.8 GHz and features a DirectX 12 capable UHD 600 graphics adapter.

AMD Raven Ridge (Ryzen 2000 APU):

Athlon 3050e: Mobile APU that integrates two Zen cores (with SMT, therefore 4 threads) clocked at 1.4 to 2.8 GHz. The TDP is specified at 6 Watt and therefore the chip can be passively cooled. The integrated Radeon graphics card offers 3 CUs at up to 1000 MHz (Radeon RX Vega 3). The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-2400. The chip is manufactured in 14nm and officially counted to the 3000 series of mobile processors.

1.2 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.4 kg:


75.7%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
