The Lenovo IdeaPad 320s 15 is a mid-tier 15.6-inch Windows laptop, staring at around $700. The IdeaPad 300-series are generally budget notebooks. However, the 320s model offers some premium features, such as a sharp Full HD display with IPS wide viewing angles, an optional discrete video card – Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB, and aluminum display lid. Externally, the 3.9-pound 320s is also characterized by thin display bezels and therefore a compact footprint of the notebook. Unlike most 15.6″ notebooks, the Lenovo IdeaPad 320s doesn’t have a dedicated numeric pad on the keyboard.

The “Mineral Grey” IdeaPad 320s 15 comes with either the 7th Gen Intel Core i5-7200U (320s SKUs 80X5005DUS and 81BQ000EUS) or i7-7500U (SKUs 80X5005EUS and 80X50002US) processor. There are excellent mainstream laptop CPUs for the daily computing activities. However, the newer 8th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 chips deliver much better performance during CPU-intensive tasks. All IdeaPad 320s configurations come with 8GB of system memory and a 1-Terabyte hard drive. Internally, the star of the show is the optional GeForce 940MX 2GB video card. It’s a lower-end dedicated graphics solution, but it provides much smoother gaming than the usual Intel HD integrated graphics series.

Currently, the best IdeaPad 320s buying choice is the 80X50002US (Amazon as of 04/11/18) configuration, since it includes the i7 CPU and 940MX GPU for around $700.

This laptop has a generous 52.5 WHr battery. According to Lenovo, it can provide up to 9 hours of battery life. But please keep in mind that running heavy computing tasks, gaming, and increased display brightness can significantly shorten the battery life.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 320s (80X5005DUS, 81BQ000EUS, 80X5005EUS, 80X50002US) has stereo speakers and a 720p web camera, 802.11AC Wi-Fi wireless, Bluetooth, a USB 3.0, a USB 2.0, and a USB-C port, HDMI video output, combo microphone / headphones jack, and a multi-format media card reader.

Lenovo also offers a similar model – the IdeaPad 320. It’s a more traditional notebook with thicker bezels (and therefore larger footprint), a built-in DVD drive, and a numeric pad on the keyboard. The 320 lacks IPS wide viewing angles, a dedicated video card option, and it has a smaller battery.
