Performance, design, and durability wise, the Lenovo 530s is one impressive laptop that won’t disappoint. Another hit of this laptop is its portability and efficiency. But remember that this laptop is not specialized for some tasks like gaming though it can run heavy apps, there are other laptops that can run them better. I cant also really say that this is a bang for the buck laptop because the competition in this price range is quite but I can say that Lenovo 530s is one competitive laptop.

Given the price and variants, Lenovo Ideapad 530S appears to be a very good deal. It has an 8th generation Intel processor, good battery life, and an overall design which is simple, sleek. It also offers a lot more on board storage than other devices, which will cost a lot more for 512GB SSD storage. Overall, the Lenovo Ideapad 530S is a good value-for-money device for those in the market for a laptop.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
