At IFA 2019, Lenovo has introduced a 13.3-inch IdeaPad S340 with Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-U and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 GPU options. The new IdeaPad S340 is available in three color options and weighs just 1.3 kg. Sadly though, Lenovo's choice of ports leave a lot to be desired.

After having announced IdeaPad S-series with AMD Ryzen Zen+ options at MWC earlier this year, Lenovo is now offering a refreshed IdeaPad S series with Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-U and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 options. While the IdeaPad S series announced at MWC had 14 and 15-inch displays, Lenovo is introducing a 13.3-inch display at IFA 2019.

The new IdeaPad S340 13-inch weighs just 1.3 kg and comes in three color options — Liquid Blue, Platinum Grey, and Sand Pink. You get CPU options starting from the Intel Core i3-10110U all the way till the Core i7-10510U, RAM options up to 16 GB, NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD options up to 512 GB, and GPU options up to the MX250. The 13.3-inch display sports an FHD resolution and covers 72% NTSC color gamut while offering a peak brightness of 300 nits. There is no Wi-Fi 6 onboard, but you do get a 2x2 wireless-AC card with Bluetooth 5.0.

Port selection is very basic and includes a couple of USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A ports, one HDMI 1.4-out, and a combo audio jack. For some reason, Lenovo chose to omit USB Type-C ports and the SD/microSD card reader, which we feel is a bad idea. A 42 Wh battery with rapid charge and up to 8 hours of theoretical battery life completes the specs. 

Pricing and availability details for the EMEA region are not yet available.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
