Notebookcheck's Top 10 Budget Multimedia Notebooks

Sebastian Bade, 👁 J. Simon Leitner, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 02/03/2018

December 2019 Update. Here you will find the best multimedia notebooks under 1000 USD/Euros reviewed by Notebookcheck in the last few months. Our list of top models is regularly updated, maintained and commented on and should assist in purchasing decisions.

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 - Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G

The Acer Aspire 5 with Whiskey Lake CPU
The Acer Aspire 5 with Whiskey Lake CPU

Acer's Aspire 5 A515-52G (here in review) is an inexpensive multimedia notebook based on a Whiskey Lake CPU. The Intel Core i5-8265U is more than powerful enough for the majority of multimedia workloads. The case is now a bit slimmer compared to the predecessor. A fast SSD and 8 GB DDR4-RAM in a dual-channel configuration ensure a responsive system performance.

The allrounder is equipped with a matte IPS panel, which is not the brightest model. The step towards displays with wide angles in the low-price segment is still a positive trend.

For about 900 Euros, you get a solid laptop with dedicated graphics card (GeForce MX150), which can handle some gaming, but you will have to waive high resolutions and details. You can also implement an additional storage drive if the 256 GB SSD is not sufficient. An empty 2.5-inch slot is available. The Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G is a good allrounder without any real drawbacks.

4th - Asus VivoBook 14

Asus VivoBook 14 - compact all-rounder
Asus VivoBook 14 - compact all-rounder

Asus expands its VivoBook-series with the 14-inch and slim Ultrabook (here in review) including the dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX230. For 800 Euros you get a fast system with a modern Whiskey Lake CPU. The chassis only uses a base unit made of plastic, but it does not feel cheap.

The display is unfortunately a bit below our expectations. it has a matte surface, but it is still not ideal for outdoor use due to the dim backlight.

 

 

The Asus VivoBook 14 turns out to be a solid all-rounder for everyday use despite some small drawbacks. It is not too expensive, either.

Nvidia's GeForce MX230 is no typical gaming GPU, but it is still powerful enough for older titles, which will even run at higher settings. All in all, the MX230 is slightly faster than the old Nvidia GeForce 940MX.

5th – 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.

Pricecompare

6th – Asus VivoBook 14

The Asus VivoBook 14 features a thin case
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.

7th – 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.

8th - HP Pavilion 15

The HP Pavilion 15 with a modern design
The HP Pavilion 15 with a modern design

HP's Pavilion 15 is an inexpensive Multimedia laptop with an Intel Core i5-8250U and dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX130. The device also offers plenty of storage with a total of 1.25 TB thanks to a 256 GB SSD for the operating system and a 1 TB hard disk for additional data.

The Pavilion 15 certainly attracts attention with the appealing design, which appears very modern with its slim-bezel design. However, the chassis is not only modern, but also stable. All in all, the multimedia laptop offers good system performance for working tasks. Nvidia's GeForce MX130 is just too weak for modern games.

The biggest drawbacks of the HP Pavilion is the short battery runtime. We only determined a meager runtime of 4:44 hours in our Wi-Fi scenario, which is not good.

The HP Pavilion 15 offers a modern and attractive design. However, don't be fooled by the design, because the battery runtime and the loud fan are considerable drawbacks.

9th - 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.

10th - Dell Inspiron 17

Dell Inspiron 17 3780 - inexpensive 17-inch laptop
Dell Inspiron 17 3780 - inexpensive 17-inch laptop

The Dell Inspiron 17 3000 3780 is a 17-inch multimedia laptop with an Intel Core i7-8565U, but the dedicated graphics card AMD Radeon 520 is pretty weak. This means the device is not suited for modern games.

The advantages include a display with a decent contrast ratio, an optical drive, which is rare nowadays, as well as the low price.

The Dell Inspiron 17 3780 with the AMD Radeon 520 is a fast laptop for home use. You can increase the system performance further with the addition of an SSD.
