Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad 300S-80Q4000KUS

Lenovo Ideapad 300 15.6″ Review
Source: Slashgear English
For the target audience, Lenovo's Ideapad 300 is a pleasant offering -- the inclusion of an optical drive and VGA are particularly welcome, as many people considering budget laptops aren't necessarily up-to-date with their other technological trimmings, and may have an older monitor and a large CD/DVD collection. Is the Ideapad going to be winning any awards? Of course not, but that's not Lenovo's intention -- what we have here is a basic laptop that is inexpensive and entirely practical.

Lenovo Ideapad 300S Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Ideapad 300S is, as far as Ideapads go, one of the higher end models, something reflected by the $500 price tag (the 100S, by comparison, can be had for as little as $180). That higher price comes with benefits, of course, making the machine an attractive option for those who need something a little more robust but not as powerful (and pricey) as a ThinkPad. It does have its downsides, though, like lack of touchscreen, and consumers should be careful to note whether the model offers the features they want most.

70% Lenovo Ideapad 300S

Given the aggressive price, I was pleasantly surprised by the Lenovo Ideapad 300S' light weight and beautiful red exterior. In testing the machine, I also liked the laptop's solid performance and responsive keyboard and touchpad. However, I was less impressed by its modest battery life.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.6 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
