Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad 120S-14IAP
Budget notebook to beat. The 14-inch Lenovo Ideapad 120s is a simple and sleek Windows laptop that retails for around $250. While the device looks and feels fairly good on the outside for a budget device, the internals are a major letdown. Considering the price, though, the Ideapad 120s is one of the better bargain laptops available.

While it's far from the fastest laptop money can buy, the 14-inch Lenovo Ideapad 120s performs surprisingly well for a system that costs about the same as a mid-range tablet or Chromebook.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Celeron N3350: A very energy-efficient dual-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive laptops. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Celerons, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
