Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11IBY

60% A promising portable with storage issues
Source: PC World English
To sum the whole deal up—I was impressed. Both with the high quality of most of the product, and the thinking that led to hamstringing this notebook with such little storage. Indeed, having to knock the score down when a 64GB version would've garnered higher marks was vexing in the extreme. I can't recommend this version of the 100S-11, regardless of the tantalizing price, because products with annoying limitations or that force workarounds hit the recycling bin (or the wall) prematurely.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11IBY is a decent ultraportable with excellent battery life and a light, but sturdy build. Its performance leaves something to be desired, however, as it's unable to accomplish more demanding multimedia tasks and is generally slower than alternative systems. There would be more appeal if it was being offered at a lower price than other budget ultraportables, given its 32-bit OS, as the faster, 64-bit HP Stream 13 and 15-inch Dell Inspiron Non-Touch (3531) are less expensive by $70 and $50, respectively.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


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.


65.25%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
