Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R2

78% Lenovo Ideapad 100S Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Windows 10 netbook. Lenovo proves that you don't need to have fancy convertibles or detachables to make a good netbook. While a healthy number of features had to be cut, the super-light Ideapad 100S is a bargain for just under $200.

Although the laptop is an all-plastic affair, it does feel metallic to the touch, giving the impression of a more expensive piece of kit. The usual Lenovo build quality is present even in this machine, and there were no creaks in the chassis or hinges, no matter how hard I tried to extract one.

Spending less than $200 on a laptop is a surprisingly viable option right now, and for those who mainly use Gmail, Facebook, Netflix and Amazon (or your own list of mail, social media, streaming video and online shopping tools), a laptop with an Intel Atom processor, low-res screen and paltry 32GB of storage may very well be all you need.

Lenovo Ideapad 100S Review: Windows 10 on a Budget
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo Ideapad 100S is lightweight and attractive with a very usable keyboard, making it a surprisingly good budget laptop. Its Atom processor is only up to light duty, however.

The Lenovo Ideapad 100S offers a ton of value, combining long battery life, an attractive design, solid performance and free Office 365. This laptop would be an even more compelling choice if its keyboard, which generally feels good, did not flex and its touchpad supported gestures.

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S Review
Source: Notebooks.com English
Some people just want to write emails and browse YouTube for hours on end without having to find a charger. The IdeaPad 100S delivers on that. It’s definitely a great machine for casual web surfers and folks who need the occasional productivity app like Word. Certainly, it’s a better buy than competing Chromebooks with fewer apps.

Review: Lenovo Ideapad 100S – a budget Windows 10 laptop
Source: Slashgear English
The Lenovo Ideapad 100S is a solid little budget laptop, hitting on the big points one wants in a laptop without crossing into more expensive territory. For $199, you'll get Bluetooth 4.0, reasonably powerful hardware, and a nice display, as well as perks like those 15GBs of OneDrive storage and the Office 365 subscription. For the price, Lenovo's Ideapad 100S is a great deal, one that will serve you well for Netflix streaming, on-the-go work, creating presentations, and more.

With an affordable price, an attractive shell, and a good keyboard and screen, the Lenovo Ideapad 100S is a very good compact budget laptop for those who don't need to do much more than surf the Web, watch the occasional video, and create school or business documents. We'd like to see more than 2GB of RAM so the system could better handle multitasking, and a bit more baked-in storage (64GB, say) for installing software.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R2 is a bargain for light users with its low price point, adequate features and portable design. This 11.6" netbook with less than 1.0 kg is rather a convenient on-the-go device rather than an everyday device, since it is only sufficient for web-browsing and Cloud connectivity. Available with Windows 10 or Chrome OS, the Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R2 relies heavily on Cloud storage due to its limited local storage of only 32 GB. Thus, users may find themselves subscribing to cloud storage or opting for a microSD storage extension immediately after purchase. However, it provides decent performance with its Intel Atom Z3735F quad core processor, which allows basic tasks and multiple tabs with no significant lags. In addition, the battery life of 8 hours is decent, although slightly inferior compared to its competition.

The good thing about the Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R2 is its sturdy design despite being a lower-end device. Its matte finish is not susceptible to fingerprints. Thanks to a 180° hinge, it can be completely opened, which may come in handy in some situations. Moreover, its keyboard provides a surprisingly easy key travel for a compact device, making typing a more comfortable experience for the users. This netbook also features 2 GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) and a 1366 x 768 display. Although its specifications may be subpar compared to other similar devices, the Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R2 is a fair deal for its price.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» 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.
0.998 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


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.


77.17%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
