The Lenovo Ideapad S510p is well-priced for its configuration. It does what it's supposed to and can handle any productivity task, but struggles with more complex activities like video encoding. The 1 TB SSHD and 8 GB of flash memory help give it fast startup, shutdown and program launching. The only drawbacks are its extremely low-quality display and audio line-out.
