Lenovo IdeaPad S145-15API: AMD's Athlon 300U APU offers more performance than Intel's low cost offerings
The Lenovo Ideapad S145-15API is a simple 15.6-inch office laptop that, thanks to its frugal Athlon 300U APU, hardly heats up and always works quietly. Its APU also offers enough computing power for office and internet applications, while outperforming the likes of the Intel Celeron, Pentium Gold and Pentium Silver series too.
However, the S145-15API falls down in many areas. Namely, Lenovo equips it with an awful TN panel that is simultaneously dark, low contrast and has poor viewing angles. 4 GB of single-channel RAM and 128 GB of storage will not set the world alight either, nor it running Windows 10 Home in S mode either.
