The Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80WG0001US is an extremely affordable mini-laptop with basic components. This highly portable 2.5-pound white plastic notebook features 1366-by-768-pixel resolution on its 11.6-inch display, an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of main memory, and 32GB of eMMC Flash-based internal storage with Windows 10 Home installed. Besides that, a free 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal is included in the package. This laptop usually costs around $200, but oftentimes is offered at a discounted price of only $150. Another good selling point of this model is a good battery life, since it has a small display and a power-saving CPU. Lenovo estimates the laptop can run up to 8 hours on a single battery charge.
Regarding the core components, the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80WG0001US has many shortcomings on paper. But these weak specs points don’t mean the laptop isn’t usable for many PC users. Its Intel Celeron N3060 dual-core processor is indeed one of the slowest among laptop CPUs, but it can still manage the basic computing tasks quite decently. You can see how it works in the real life in this review of the Celeron N3050 / N3060. 2 Gigabytes of system memory is a limiting factor when it comes to multitasking, so on this laptop you’ll be able to simultaneously run without system slowdowns only a few programs and browser tabs. Modern laptops usually have 4, 8 or more GB of RAM. Storage space of 32GB is on the crippled side, too. Since Windows takes up around half of that amount, users are left with only 15-16GB of free storage space for their files. Thankfully, the laptop has a built-in microSD card reader, in which you can put a memory card to expand the internal storage.
The 80WG0001US features stereo speakers, a web camera, 802.11AC wireless, Bluetooth, HDMI video connector, two USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port, a combo microphone / headphones audio port, and the aforementioned microSD card slot.
