50% Lenovo IdeaPad 530S review
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo 530S is a fine laptop with an aluminum build and decent performance at an affordable price, but poor speakers and visuals do very little to help this one stand out from the competition.

Lenovo's IdeaPad 530S is a meat-and-potatoes, middle-of-the-road laptop that's elevated by a slim chassis and long battery life.

The Lenovo Ideapad 530S' design reminds me of a monochrome painting you'd find in a contemporary art museum. There isn't much too it, and yet, it's mesmerizing. Every design cue feels like it has a purpose, adding up to a laptop that looks elegant and feels expensive. The Ideapad 530S is a laptop with premium looks and good performance for a not-so-premium price.

The Lenovo Ideapad 530S can be purchased from Lenovo’s online store directly. Our review unit retails for Rs. 74,999, which is a good price considering its build quality and specifications. It's not easily available on other popular e-commerce platforms yet, and the one listing we did find had a much higher price.

70% Lenovo IdeaPad 530S review: It’s got the suave
Source: Gadget Show English
Lenovo IdeaPad 530S is definitely an update over the last year’s IdeaPad 520. You may not find any major changes in the hardware side of things until unless looked closely. On the inside, the device is one powerful computing machine that can handle most of your daily tasks like editing documents, browsing with several tabs open and can even let you play lightweight, not-so-graphic intensive games. However, a slight disappointment could be there for the battery performance.

The Lenovo IdeaPad is a fine device for processing word, image, and some light video. Its cool performance under load matches its cool metallic look. With a sharp display, mature styling, and precise touchpad, the IdeaPad 530S definitely marks a new high in Lenovo design.

85% Lenovo Ideapad 530s 14″ Review – Your better than basic midrange laptop
Source: Manila Shaker English
Performance, design, and durability wise, the Lenovo 530s is one impressive laptop that won’t disappoint. Another hit of this laptop is its portability and efficiency. But remember that this laptop is not specialized for some tasks like gaming though it can run heavy apps, there are other laptops that can run them better. I cant also really say that this is a bang for the buck laptop because the competition in this price range is quite but I can say that Lenovo 530s is one competitive laptop.

80% Lenovo Ideapad 530S review: Minimalistic design, big on features
Source: The Indian Express English
Given the price and variants, Lenovo Ideapad 530S appears to be a very good deal. It has an 8th generation Intel processor, good battery life, and an overall design which is simple, sleek. It also offers a lot more on board storage than other devices, which will cost a lot more for 512GB SSD storage. Overall, the Lenovo Ideapad 530S is a good value-for-money device for those in the market for a laptop.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture. Renamed GeForce 940MX.» 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.
