The Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKB is a mid-range 15.6-inch notebook starting at $430. It features the 7th Generation Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, up to 12GB of RAM, up to 1 Terabyte hard drive or 256GB solid state drive storage, and a DVD optical drive. They are packed in a “Platinum Grey” chassis made of plastics, with a non-backlit keyboard and spacious trackpad in the center of it.

The display comes in two variants – with usual HD 1366-by-768 and with crispier Full HD 1920-by-1080 resolution. In both cases, technolgy behind the panel is TN. This means narrower viewing angles than on IPS-based screens. Touch-screen option is also missing. A good thing about the display is its anti-glare coating, as opposed to more common glossy finish.

Regarding performance, all of the available processor options ensure flawless work in usual home and office-related programs. Offered are the 7th Gen Intel Core i3-7100U, i5-7200U, and i7-7500U. Choosing the i5 and i7 chips increases the base price, but they provide more oomph to support some more intensive computing. To further increase speed, you can choose SSD storage over slower HDD. SSD will boost system responsiveness and loading / boot-up times. System memory starts at 4GB. That’s enough for moderate multitasking. If you plan to run many programs simultaneously, Lenovo offers you with 8GB or 12GB RAM options.

All three CPU options include the Intel HD 620 graphics, which is good only for basic gaming, as shown in this review.
