Reviews for the Lenovo S21e-20-80M40015US

60% Lenovo S21e-20
Source: PC Mag English
The Lenovo S21e-20 is a decent ultraportable budget laptop, with a fair share of storage, and it runs smoothly if you're not using intensive applications like Adobe Photoshop. If you're a student with modest computing needs—like writing papers and doing research—the S21e-20 is a perfectly good computer that is portable and wallet-friendly. However, the HP Stream 13 remains our Editors' Choice for budget ultraportable laptops, with much better performance, a larger, brighter display, and a more attractive design for less.

60% Good Enough Only At the Right Price

Potential buyers should know that Lenovo achieves that price by sacrificing display and keyboard quality, processing power, and battery life. Looking at each element in context reveals that Lenovo made the right calls. Even a mediocre display by today’s standards is still pretty good. The keyboard’s shallow strokes can be frustrating, but it’s still usable, and undoubtedly better than any on-screen tablet or smartphone alternative. In terms of processing power, the S21e manages Windows 8.1, and more importantly, Windows 10 just fine. Again, it’s at least equal to many mobile Windows devices on the market, and perfectly capable for modest productivity.

The $269 Lenovo S21e is the saltine cracker of budget notebooks: not bad, not good, just bland. Thankfully, it doesn't leave a dry taste in your mouth, but it's relatively short battery life and finicky touchpad will make you wonder if there's something better out there. The answer is yes. The $199 HP Stream 11 performs similarly to the S21e, has a slightly longer battery life, and lets you choose a cerulean blue or bright purple notebook with more personality.

11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.2 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


56.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
