Model: The Lenovo Ideapad D330-10IGM-81MD0006GE is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop that combines laptop performance with tablet freedom, perfectly. Feature-rich yet small in size, it gives lightning-quick 4G LTE connectivity and seamless processing on the go. Packed with ports, it has two cameras and an all-day battery. The tablet with 608 grams and the dock with 531 grams add up to 1.14 kilograms. It is considered an average weight in convertibles although there are even lighter models. The convertible also offers a very large ClickPad. Users can switch seamlessly between the two by detaching the keyboard. This truly versatile 2-in-1 boasts a convenient trackpad, a Lenovo Active Pen, Dolby Audio Premium, and a beautiful 10” screen with up to Full HD display. Users can sketch, take notes, write, sign, or doodle away straight onto the screen. With its pinpoint accuracy and pressure-sensitive nib, the Lenovo Active Pen delivers a real pen-on-paper experience. Delivering performance is an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, an Intel UHD Graphics 600 graphic card, 4 GB DDR4-2133 RAM and 64 GB eMMC Flash storage. It delivers sufficient power for simple tasks, but users should not expect great computing performance as compared to higher end models. For more storage space in everyday life, the micro-SD card slot can be used.
The crystal clear FHD display is at 1,280 x 800 pixels, which is not high, but results in sufficient pixel density of 149:1 on the small display. The radiance is pleasing with 389 cd/m² and the display is pleasantly bright. Although the surface is basically reflective, the contrast is still very good even under bright conditions. The IdeaPad D330 has an abundance of ports, including a USB-C 3.1 to help you charge other devices or transfer data at speeds up to 10 Gbps. It also supports MicroSD and nano-SIM cards, giving more versatility than a laptop or tablet alone. With a single charge, the IdeaPad D330 gives over 12 hours of battery life. So users can be on the go all day and not have to waste any time looking for a charger or wall socket. As a conclusion, the Lenovo Ideapad D330-10IGM-81MD0006GE is suitable for users who require an entry-level convertible device on the go. It is suitable for simple tasks such as checking emails, browsing and streaming. The lower storage options suggest storing most documents on cloud storage. Thus, it is more suitable for users who rely more on the cloud for their day to day tasks. This laptop might be on the low end side but due to its 2-in-1 nature, its price is slightly higher than its competitors.

77%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
