Lenovo Ideapad S145-15IWL-81MV001BGE

The Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 breaks the mold of the contemporary 2-in-1 convertibles. Its design not only capitalizes on a more flattened and sleeker overall surface. It is ultimately a more distinctly commutable gadget to aid users to boot the system up wherever they wish to go. The Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 demonstrates a wide range of versatility when it comes to accomplishing essential tasks pertaining to productivity, but it has some notable downsides to it when delved further upon. First of all, it is worth noting that the monitor of the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 does not flip all the way to the rear end of the device due to the absence of a standard 360 degree angle rotation mechanism. However, it can be laid flat on a plain surface without any obstruction, which can be considered as a quirky trait, which can be put into good use. With immediacy, it can also be noted that the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 has a 15.6 inches antiglare display, which is further magnified by thin side bezels. The visuals displayed are further accompanied with an audio system of complimentary caliber all thanks to the appreciated inclusion of Dolby Audio technology. On further inspection, it seems like the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 houses some core components that are not too bad in general. In terms of performance, it does well with its 8th generation Intel Core i7-8565u processor unit. This particular processor unit is considered to be power efficient and offers a higher clock speed due to its production through an improved 14 nm process. Compared to slower processor units from the past, the Intel Core i7-8565u supports Thermal Velocity Boost, which enables a temporary boost of performance upon its activation. The Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 also comes equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce MX230 graphics card. The GeForce MX230 is optimal enough for custom work to be done on creative multimedia content, but it is safe to say that the GeForce MX230 is ill suited to sustain the latest titles of games. Demanding games may not even run fluently with a configuration of the lowest detail settings possible. Therefore, the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 is generally better off to be used and focused on everyday work instead of competitive gaming. The construction of the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 is wholly made out of polycarbonate and plastic materials. This entails to the fact that the structure of the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 is prone to scratch. However, despite the materials used are of the cheaper variety, its aesthetic is surprisingly professional and pleasing to say the least. Needless to say, thoughtful development and efforts were being poured into the design of the Lenovo Ideapad S145-15 without any sort of visible discrepancy. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Lenovo Ideapad S145 15 review – budget multimedia device with a modern look
Source: Laptop Media English
Despite the Ideapad S145 15’s wide versatility, we found it to lack some key features. Yes, the device clearly looks pretty, especially given the competition at the bottom end of the budget. However, we would give up the looks for the convenience given by the DVD reader and the RJ-45 connector of HP 15 (15-da0000) for example. That’s not all, though. One of the biggest concerns we had was with the battery. It is only a 30Wh unit that will last you through no more than 4 hours and a half of web browsing. Add the lack of an IPS panel to the mixture and you will end up with a pretty average budget offering. Thankfully, the laptop is made pretty easy to disassemble and offers you decent upgradability. Additionally, it doesn’t heat up and it is barely audible during full load.

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.
