Lenovo IdeaPad 330s (15″) review – IPS display laptop at an absurdly low price
Source: Laptop Media English
Lenovo IdeaPad 330s (15″) is a relatively adequate budget device with a good enough performance and an IPS panel – something rarely seen on a notebook at this price. Moreover, it has upgradable memory via one RAM DIMM and even an M.2 PCIe slot for NVMe SSDs. Of course, if you don’t want to pay a premium price for a notebook you have to settle with some cuts. Usually, manufacturers prefer to substitue the IPS panel with a cheaper TN one. However, here the cost cutting came mostly with the build quality, as there is a little wobble to the base, but still nothing too dramatic.

Lenovo IdeaPad 330s (14″) review – contender for the budget 14-inch crown
Source: Laptop Media English
Lenovo IdeaPad 330s (14″) is one of the more budget 14-inchers on the market. Obviously, you shouldn’t expect anything special from a notebook at this price. If you live by this philosophy, than IdeaPad 330s (14″) is a great device for you. It features an outstanding battery life – on average around 9 hours and a half of web browsing and video playback. We should note, though, that this result came with the 52Wh battery, as there is a smaller – 30Wh one, that most definitely would perform a lot worse.

70% Lenovo Ideapad 330S – 15IKB U (81F5010MIN) Review
Source: Reliance Digital English
The Lenovo Ideapad 330S is a simple yet classy looking laptop. It features a slimmer profile than older Ideapad 330 models. The 15.6-inch full HD screen is one of the highlighted features at the price it is offered. While this laptop has commendable build and design, it does not make its mark in performance tests. Graphic designers and gamers may consider this laptop as a secondary machine. It would have been better if Lenovo had bumped the hardware specifications just a bit. For those looking for an everyday laptop, this might be a worthy purchase at Rs. 38,999*.

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.


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

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.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 1100 MHz. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

AMD Radeon RX 540: Polaris based mid-range graphics card with 512 shaders (8 compute units) and a maximum clock speed of 1,219 MHz (according to AMD). Uses the new Polaris 12 chip like the faster Radeon RX 550 (not verified but highly likely) with the slightly improved 14nm FinFET process.Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 610: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Same performance as the old HD Graphics 510.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. AMD Ryzen 3:

2200U: Mobile APU that integrates two Zen cores (with SMT, therefore 4 threads) clocked at 2.5 to 3.4 GHz. The TDP is configurable between 12 to 25 Watt (15 W nominal) and the integrated Radeon RX Vega 3 is clocked at up to 1000 MHz. Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.Intel Core i3:

8130U: On the Kaby-Lake architecture based dual core SoC clocked at 2.2 to 3.4 GHz with HyperThreading (4 Threads) and an integrated UHD Graphics 620 graphics card clocked at up to 1 GHz.Intel Pentium:

4415U: Kaby-Lake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Compared to the Core i3-7100H, the 4415U is clocked slower (2.3 versus 3 GHz), offers less Level 3 cache and a slower GPU. Both a manufactured in the same 14nm process.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.9 kg:


77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
