90% Lenovo IdeaPad S340 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
For a sub £300-price, the IdeaPad S340 is an excellent budget laptop giving you a decent amount of style and features. You get a nice keyboard, long battery life and good set of ports. Performance is what you would expect so you will be limited to basic tasks at this entry-level, so look for a more powerful model if that's an issue. The main downside here is the poor screen, though.

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.
