The Lenovo IdeaPad 120S(-14IAP) is a very affordable 14-inch laptop with Windows 10 Home OS. Priced at $280 (SKU: 81A5006SUS), the lightweight 3.2 pound notebook delivers basic components, packed in a 0.7″ slim plastic chassis:
- A budget display with common 1366-by-768 resolution and without IPS-class wide viewing angles. It’s an anti-glare type screen.
- The Intel Celeron N3350 dual-core entry-level processor which is good only for basic day-to-day tasks – web surf, emails, MS Office, movies and music playback, etc.
- 4GB of system memory – minimal by today’s standards but still decently capacious for everyday use.
- 64GB of eMMC storage which is on the smaller side. Thankfully, it isn’t only 32GB you can find in some similarly priced laptops.
- The battery isn’t capacious either. It’s a 32 WHr unit, but on the positive side components aren’t power hungry. Lenovo’s estimated battery life is “up to 8.5 hours”.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 120S(-14IAP) has stereo speakers and a 0.3-Megapixel web camera. The laptop isn’t generous when it comes to peripheral connectivity. It has only two USB ports (one full-size USB 3.0 and a small USB-C). Besides that, there’s a HDMI video out, a microSD card reader, Bluetooth, and a combo audio jack. For Internet, you can use the notebook’s built-in 802.11AC Wi-Fi.
