Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad S215 59372287

83% Review Lenovo IdeaPad S215 59372287 Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
Enduring quad-core. Lenovo equips a small 11.6-inch laptop with an AMD quad-core processor, and demands less than 400 Euros (~$547) for the bundle. Our test report reveals whether Lenovo has created the perfect compromise of size, performance, and price.
60% Lenovo IdeaPad S215
Source: PC Mag English
The Lenovo IdeaPad S215 is a good choice for Windows users who require ultrabook portability at budget pricing. Its quad-core CPU notwithstanding, you'll have to be patient while it slogs its way through certain productivity and multimedia tasks, but it's easy to travel with and offers a comfy full-size keyboard and a nice selection of I/O ports. Unfortunately, you don't get touch-screen capabilities with this model.

AMD Radeon HD 8330:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 500 MHz and paired with AMD Richland A4-5000 "Kabini" APUs.

A4-5000: Quad-core APU for low-end laptops, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates an Radeon HD 8330 graphics card.» 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.


1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


71.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
