Reviews for the Lenovo V510-15IKB 80WQ0002GE
Without stamina. With the V510-15IKB, Lenovo offers a quiet 15.6-inch device for work. It is well equipped: Among others, it comes with a Kaby Lake processor, an SSD, Windows 10 Pro, and an IPS display. However, the battery runtimes are disappointing.

The Lenovo Ideapad V510 is a rare breed of budget laptops. It’s hard to find in which department the laptop compromises, of course, given the price point of the product. It has similar but slightly better build quality compared to the Ideapad V110, for example, but excels is so many other areas. Our unit packs a Core i3-7100U CPU, 8GB of DDR4-2133 memory, a Full HD IPS panel and an M.2 SATA SSD. And aside from the M.2 slot, the laptop also offers a standard 2.5-inch HDD/SSD slot as well.

Lenovo has rolled out the V510, which is catered for home and business use. Going around the laptop, it sports a simple and smart design with no frills. Its dimensions are 23 x 380 x 262 mm (H x W x D) and it weighs approximately 2 kg. For the most part, the lid and the keyboard are a combination of plastic and metal sheets for rigidity. Its zinc-alloy hinges are made to be durable, and add a premium look and feel to the laptop. The hinges on the V510 can also be pushed all the way down to accommodate 180 degrees flexibility, so the screen can be laid flat on any surface. For the 151KB-80WQ0000GE configuration, the V510 rocks a glossy 15.6-inch FHD display with IPS technology, which is a standard display size for most laptops in this price range. The screen has LED lighting, good contrasts and allows for a nearly 180 degrees of wide-angle viewing, which is perfect for sharing a presentation on the laptop. The screen features an aspect ratio of 16:9, a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, and a pixel density of 100 PPI. While the V510 is able to produce crisp images, the display’s color vibrancy is not top end. That means it will be very difficult to do any graphics design, photo and video editing on the V510. However, do bear in mind that the V510 is an office-work oriented laptop, so it should be forgivable that the laptop has a limited color range.
The V510 features a full size keyboard with a number pad. The Chiclet design is supposed to reduce potential buildup of dust and dirt around the edges of the keys and underneath the keyboard. The backlight illuminates the keyboard evenly, and the tactile feedback of the keys feels great. The trackpad is a good size and gives scrolling a smooth and pleasant experience. Perched on the top centre of the display is a HD webcam that captures good videos, even in low light ambient indoors. Generally, the V510 line of laptops features an ultrabay design, which gives users a choice between an integrated optical drive or an additional battery. For the 151KB-80WQ0000GE configuration, the device has gone with the integrated optical drive option. There is a good selection of ports spread out throughout the laptop. i.e. two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 or 3.1 Gen1, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a dedicated card reader. The battery of the V510 is a 32 Wh Lithium-Ion battery with a runtime of approximately 6 hours. Under the hood, the V510 runs on an Intel Core i5-7200U Kaby Lake-U CPU. Coupled with an Intel HD Graphics 620 adapter and 8 GB of RAM, the V510 can handle entry-level gaming and has no problems multitasking several applications simultaneously. Storage wise, the laptop has an inbuilt storage capacity of 256 GB. This is a really good laptop for business users who are looking for a no nonsense laptop.
