Comment

Model:

The IdeaPad is quite a classic among business notebooks and the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-14IBR-80R900HXGE is no different with its solidness and robustness although it should be mentioned that one shouldn’t expect too much from this Lenovo notebook. One of the main advantage of this IdeaPad is its passive cooling system which reduces noise to a minimum although it should be noted compared to Lenovo’s other lineups this model lacks the battery endurance of most business class notebooks. In terms of specs there isn’t much to be impressed about other than being powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 processor with 4GB of memory and 64GB of solid state storage. It should be noted that 64GB is a little constricting even if solely used as a productivity machine and especially in the year 2017 it would be nice to have at least 128GB of solid state capacity. Nonetheless the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-14IBR-80R900HXGE is reasonably spec-ed for its given price point. In terms of IO the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-14IBR-80R900HXGE has 1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, HDMI and a MicroSD CardReader which is about average although it would have been nice to have at least 1 USB type C port. Because of its price range the included LCD panel is only 1366x768 but it shouldn’t be an issue since the display remains reasonably bright and vibrant.

Taking a look at the user inputs the included keyboard is about standard in design and usability with the keys displaying a reasonable travel distance and feedback without feeling too shallow, overall the presses weren’t too mushy as with most notebook keyboards out there. As for the touchpad, it feels a tad too small height-wise although this can be attributed to its reasonably sized click buttons at the bottom. The touchpad remains smooth and glides extremely well even with slightly sweaty fingers, and the click buttons are non-too deep when pressed but does feel a bit too soft in pressure. Going over the battery endurance of the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-14IBR-80R900HXGE unfortunately it scores rather badly at 4 hours 50 minutes not because it’s hardware was bad but because it’s hardware is supposed to sip power, however the components are not all to blame because the battery equipped on this is only about 33Wh which is a tad small considering most notebooks of this class would at least have a 45Wh battery or in some rare cases 60Wh otherwise as a productivity device it scores reasonably well.

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.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
