Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 100-14IBY
Source: PC Mag
The Lenovo IdeaPad 100-14IBY doesn't stand out in any one area, but it doesn't have glaring weaknesses for the price either. A better display would be a nice upgrade—the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch offers a larger screen with a higher resolution. The physical design is solid and lightweight, with no obvious flaws, but performance is only decent at best. The smaller size may be appealing if you're going to frequently take this system with you, but you might be better off investing in an ultraportable laptop designed for the road.
