Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad S145-14IWL-81MU0089GE
There’s several cons to the Lenovo S145, such as its body material, the substandard display, poor audio quality, and somewhat short battery life. Still, it does have a couple of functional aspects to it; the material allows the laptop to be thin and lightweight, has several ports, and it can be upgradeable to some higher specs. The IdeaPad S145 is a pretty straightforward, no-frills laptop. If you’re a light user or a student/professional who’s looking for a machine to do basic computing and productivity tasks and don’t mind its starting price of PHP 18,995, then the Lenovo S145 is for you.
