The Lenovo IdeaPad 130 15 is a budget-class 15.6-inch laptop, starting at below $400. As same as the most of inexpensive Windows notebooks, the plastic-topped Lenovo IdeaPad 130 15 has an ordinary HD 1366-by-768-pixel TN screen, lacking sharpness and wide viewing angles of the Full HD IPS panels. Also, the laptop lacks keyboard backlight. On the positive side, the IdeaPad 130 15 is equipped with excellent mainstream processors – the dual-core 7th Gen Intel Core i3-7020U (similar to the i3-7100U) lower-mid-range and higher-end quad-core 8th Gen i5-8250U and i7-8550U. The laptop has 4GB of RAM soldered onto the motherboard, plus a single RAM slot for memory expansion. The IdeaPad 130 15 comes with up to 8GB of RAM, a 500GB or 1-Terabyte hard drive, and a 30 WHr battery. The battery capacity is among the smallest in the 15.6″ laptop category. Nevertheless, Lenovo claims it can last up to 5.5 hours on a charge. A nice addition to the feature set is a built-in DVD writer drive, which is missing on many modern notebooks.

Here are some example IdeaPad 130 15 configurations you can find on Lenovo.com:
