Model: The Lenovo IdeaPad V110-15IAP-80TG00W3GE is part of the ultra-low budget lineup from Lenovo offering very basic features and usability. However, the Lenovo V110's excellent features/price ratio, coupled with a lightweight, makes it an interesting option for casual users. If it is a budget device, the savings usually begin with the materials of the finish. The Lenovo V110 is no exception. Its body is completely plastic, universal black. The surface of the cover is smooth, so dust and dirt are not collected in excessive amounts. In the upper left corner is a small golden brand logo. Minimalism in its pure form is an easily recognizable style of Lenovo. The laptop was lightweight at 1.9 kg, and compact with a dimension of 380 x 262 x 23 mm, so a user can take it anywhere he likes, without worrying that it will not fit in the bag or it will be painful to pull the shoulder off. The build quality is quite acceptable, considering the inexpensive components: the case does not creak, no backlashes are found, as well as deflections. The Ideapad V110 offers an HD (1.366 × 768 pixels) TN display, which is pretty low for today’s standards. Viewing angles are not that great, as expected, due to the TN panel. Usually, laptops offering low-end TN panels do not go higher than 190-200 cd/m² but this one scored 247 cd/m² in the center of the screen. The good brightness is a little surprising for a budget laptop. The surface of the display is anti-glare. This is good news for those who work at the window or like to use a laptop outdoors.
The processor of the laptop is represented by the dual-core Intel Pentium N4200. It is manufactured in the 14 nm process part of the so-called Goldmont architecture, but it is part of the Apollo Lake generation of entry-level chips. The chip integrates four cores clocked at 1.1 GHz but can go up to 2.5 GHz using Intel’s Burst technology. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 505 is responsible for graphics. The game potential of this video accelerator is weak, i.e. it will only pull old games at low, maximum at medium settings. However, for a laptop designed for work tasks, this is not critical. The amount of RAM is 4 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz standard. The user can store important information on a 1 TB hard drive (5400 rpm). The main part of the interfaces is located on the left side of the device, namely USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, HDMI video output, RJ-45 network connector. On the right side, there is an optical DVD drive, a combined audio jack, and a Kensington lock slot. The front is a 4-in-1 card . The Lenovo IdeaPad V110-15IAP-80TG00W3GE is a basic laptop for students or home users. For its price, it is a good deal if one needs a laptop with this specs.
