Lenovo Ideapad C340 (14″) review – one of the best priced convertibles on the market
Source: Laptop Media English
At the end of the day, should you buy this device? Well, for the price Lenovo is asking for, we don’t think you can get anything extremely better than that. Especially if you want or need the versatility of the touchscreen. If you are willing to spend a little bit more, check out the Yoga 730, which is a pretty decent convertible.

Lenovo Ideapad C340 — Practicality and capability in a daily use device
Source: Ausdroid English
If I was looking at a new laptop at the moment, this would be well up on the list. Despite its failings, the fact that I could potentially replace my tablet and laptop with one device is a big win. The weight and lack of battery in certain circumstances are the biggest drawbacks that would make me seriously look elsewhere. I would like to have seen the screen delivered with higher resolution and a bit more a of responsive touch to the keyboard, this is my personal preference though – not a specific problem with the hardware.

Lenovo Ideapad C340 (15″) review – the beginning of a new era
Source: Laptop Media English
All-in-all we’ve got a great experience with this laptop. We love to see more and more convertible devices, as this would generally mean that the technology is improving, as there is more competition. However, we were most impressed by the performance of the laptop, as well as its looks.

82.6% Lenovo IdeaPad C340-15IWL laptop review: Lenovo's convertible pleases with long battery life | Notebookcheck
With the IdeaPad C340-15IWL, Lenovo delivers a well-equipped 15.6-inch convertible, which also offers very good battery life. The IPS touchscreen display can be operated with your fingers as well as with the Lenovo Active Pen 2, which can be purchased separately.
74% Lenovo Ideapad C340 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Lenovo IdeaPad C340 is a fine convertible laptop with sufficient power for everyday tasks. With the inbuilt dedicated GPU, you can even try your hand at gaming. Its display, though not bright enough, is good for annotation and doodling with the bundled stylus. Where does the device not succeed then? At 1.65 kilogrammes, it’s quite heavy for tablet use. Its battery life, too, is disappointingly short, especially if you turn the screen brightness up to max. If you can live with those two minuses, and the fact that the sound isn’t too great, the Lenovo IdeaPad C340 is a convertible worth picking.

Comment

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.
