Sebastian Bade, 👁 J. Simon Leitner, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Andreas Osthoff),

Multimedia laptops are all-rounders and very popular among customers. Whether it is web browsing, office work, or modern games, modern multimedia laptops can handle everything. For this ranking, however, we limit the theoretical budget to 1000 Euros (lowest current price at the time of writing). The minimum requirement for the performance level is a GeForce MX150, which can at least handle modern games in 1366x768 pixels. The other multimedia ranking and more interesting lists are obviously still available:

The following table shows an overview of the Top 10 budget multimedia laptops as reviewed by Notebookcheck in the past 12 months. If ratings are equal, the latest review is listed first. The table can be sorted by clicking its headers and filtered by entering text in the text field above it (e.g. "matte").

Note: The cheapest street price at the time of the last revision of this article applies to the following list. The sales prices shown in the following table and in the price comparison with the individual articles are automatically updated daily and can therefore differ!

Editors' Comments

There are plenty of multimedia laptops for under 1,000 Euros. This category features a good price-performance ratio, because all multimedia-class device are equipped with a discrete graphics card and provide decent gaming performance. Inexpensive entry-level models are often shipped with a powerful processor, but the common GeForce MX150 is not a perfect solution for modern 3D games. Manufacturers also try to save money in terms of storage, which can quickly become the bottleneck due to high storage requirements of multimedia contents like games, picture, or videos. You should favor an SSD/HDD combination.

1st – Lenovo IdeaPad S540

Lenovo's IdeaPad S540 is available in three colors
Lenovo's IdeaPad S540 is available in three colors

Lenovo’s IdeaPad S540 is available as either AMD or Intel-powered SKU, and both models offer more than enough performance at a fair price starting at around $800. In our reviews, the Intel SKU did better overall than the AMD SKU.

We particularly liked the S540’s modern design resulting in a very thin case. Nevertheless, the aluminum case including its display lid was fairly sturdy. We would have expected more connectivity – just three regular USB ports and one HDMI are the bare minimum required these days.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S540 is available with either an AMD or an Intel CPU. Its overall built quality is excellent, and both SKUs cost around the same.

The 512 GB NVMe SSD was very fast and large enough for a multimedia laptop. If you need more storage space you can either upgrade the existing SSD or add a secondary M.2-2242 module.

2nd – Lenovo Ideapad S340

Lenovo Ideapad S340 with Whiskey Lake SoC
Lenovo Ideapad S340 with Whiskey Lake SoC

Lenovo’s Ideapad S340 [see review here] turned out to be a solid device and managed to secure one of the top spots in our top 10 list of budget multimedia notebooks. Its robust case is available in four different colors, and thanks to its conservative design it does not look out of place in typical office environments. Thanks to Intel’s latest Whiskey Lake generation of processors, the Core i7-8565U, it offered plenty of oomph. Its good overall system performance certainly benefitted from the fast 512 GB PCIe SSD. An extra 2.5-inch hard drive bay is available for retroactive upgrades. Unfortunately, the RAM is fixed at 8 GB and cannot be upgraded.

Most users will be more than satisfied with the display that did not show any signs of PWM flickering whatsoever. Unfortunately, it comes at a price: poor color accuracy, poor color space coverage, and a dim backlight. Therefore, it is not suited for professional use. Its battery life was also comparatively short, and it only lasted 6 hours in our Wi-Fi test.

Lenovo’s Ideapad S340 is a decent device offering decent system performance. Unfortunately, battery life is comparatively short.

Thanks to its GeForce MX230 GPU the Ideapad S340 is even capable of gaming, albeit we advise you to steer clear of current games if at all possible. The GPU is, after all, based on an entry-level chip design.

3rd – Aspire 7 A715

Acer Aspire 7 A715-74G with long battery life
Acer Aspire 7 A715-74G with long battery life

The Acer Aspire 7 A715-74G (see review here) is a decent all-rounder with gaming ambitions. It is based around Intel’s i5-9300H and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 and thus powerful enough for modern games. Another key element is the fast 512 GB large SSD. At 8 GB RAM is sufficient yet not enough for running many applications simultaneously.

Acer’s Aspire 7 A715-74G is a decent all-rounder with good multimedia qualities as well as the capability to run modern games.

Its largest pro is battery life that did not suffer despite powerful hardware. The display features an IPS panel with great viewing angles, a decent contrast ratio, and good color representation. However, brightness is too low for its class.

4th – Asus VivoBook 14

The Asus VivoBook 14 features a thin case

The Asus VivoBook 14 (see review here) is a slim and compact 14-inch notebook. It features an Intel Core i5-8265U, which should be more than powerful enough for most applications, as well as a dedicated GeForce MX230 GPU. The latter transforms the VivoBook 14 into a multimedia device with limited gaming capabilities.

The cooler seems to be overburdened with the internal components, and both CPU and GPU are throttled after a short while. Overall system performance feels smooth thanks to the SSD.

The Asus VivoBook 14 is an affordable all-rounder for home users.

The matte display offers great viewing angles and a decent representation of colors. Brightness and contrast ratio are too low for its class.

5th – Asus VivoBook S15

The Asus VivoBook S15 S532F has to displays
The Asus VivoBook S15 S532F has to displays

We have already seen a laptop with two displays in the ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE. This time around the ScreenPad 1.0 has been improved and can be found in the much cheaper Asus VivoBook S15 (see review here).

Furthermore, the multimedia laptop features a Core i7-8565U as well as a dedicated GeForce MX250 GPU.

In our review, the device was capable of taking full advantage of the ScreenPad 2.0 as it addressed most of the issues we had with its v1.0 predecessor. In terms of performance the S15 was underwhelming due to the i7-8565U’s limited turbo-boost capabilities. Nevertheless, the VivoBook S15 is great for work and a more than capable casual gaming and multimedia laptop.

If you were put off by the ScreenPad 1.0 you should give the second iteration another chance. It is more than just a gimmick and much more powerful than Apple’s Touch Bar.

6th – Lenovo Ideapad S540

Lenovo Ideapad S540 with robust aluminum base
Lenovo Ideapad S540 with robust aluminum base

Lenovo’s Ideapad S540 (see review here) is an affordable multimedia notebook based on Intel’s Core i5-10210U paired with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU. In addition, it offers a large and fast 512 GB SSD.

We were positively surprised by its high-quality material and its very long battery life. In our Wi-Fi test, the Ideadpad S540 ran for more a respectable more than 12 hours. The case is modern and good-looking, and all that will only set you back around $800.

Lenovo’s Ideapad S540 is an affordable multimedia notebook with very long battery life.

Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold, and there are a few flaws worth noting. First and foremost of which would be its comparatively poor Wi-Fi performance. In addition, its display was very reflective, and its connectivity comparatively poor.

7th - Acer Aspire 5 A515

The Acer Aspire 5 A515 supports WiFi 6
The Acer Aspire 5 A515 supports WiFi 6

The Acer Aspire 5 A515 (see review here) has been a viable budget notebook for a long time. The latest model, equipped with Intel’s latest Core i5-10210U, continues its long line of ancestors. The GPU of choice is Nvidia’s GeForce MX250, which should be fast enough for casual gaming, and both SSD and IPS panel are available on this sub-$1000 laptop as well.

The Acer Aspire 5 A515 is an affordable all-rounder with gaming capabilities and Wi-Fi 6.

Our biggest gripe was the display due to its low maximum brightness and its inaccurate colors. In addition, the Comet Lake SoC remained far behind its theoretical capabilities, and the device lacks a card reader.

Pricecompare

8th - Dell Inspiron 15 5000

Dell's Inspiron 15 5000 offers a decent performance
Dell's Inspiron 15 5000 offers a decent performance

Dell’s Inspiron 15 5000 (see review here) surprised us with its great performance. Its AMD Ryzen 7 3700U offers a comparable multi-thread performance as Intel’s Core i7-8565U.

The case seems somewhat inconspicuous, which is okay considering the fact that this is still a budget device for around $1,000. Its AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 is a decent iGPU and comparable to a GeForce MX150.

Dell’s Inspiron 15 5000 combines a powerful AMD APU with a surprisingly powerful Radeon RX Vega 10 inside an affordable multimedia notebook.

We liked its low system noise in low-load scenarios as well as its comparatively simple maintenance and the fact that it can be charged via USB-C.

However, we would have expected more of its display. It is too dim and offers a very limited color space coverage. Furthermore, its cheap bottom cover material and slow Wi-Fi module are courtesy of its low price.

9th - Lenovo Ideapad S340 15

Lenovo Ideapad S340-15IIL with Ice Lake SoC
Lenovo Ideapad S340-15IIL with Ice Lake SoC

If you’re looking for a capable device with multimedia genes for home use, you may want to take a closer look at Lenovo’s IdeaPad S340-15 (see review here). It is based on Intel’s latest Ice Lake SoC, including its integrated GPU. Unfortunately, dedicated GPUs are not available basically stripping the device of its gaming capabilities.

Thanks to its low weight the Lenovo IdeaPad S340-15 is a very handy device for home use and occasional travel.

Visually, it feels very modern and elegant thanks to its narrow display bezels and its thin base. Despite its compact built we did not encounter any thermal issues worth mentioning in our tests. Unfortunately, the overall good impression is tainted by poor battery life and spongy input devices.
