The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 15 is an inexpensive 15.6-inch Windows notebook. It starts at around $250. The IdeaPad 330 features ordinary entry-level display options without IPS wide viewing angles. On the positive side, the laptop provides a choice of sharper Full HD screen resolution instead of standard HD, as well as optional touch-screen.

Performance of the IdeaPad 330 15 varies greatly depending on a configuration. The laptop is available with a wide range of Intel or AMD processors. On the cheaper side, there are the AMD E2-9000, AMD A4-9125, and Intel Celeron N4000 chips, which are good only for basic PC tasks. A step up are the lower-mid-range Intel Core i3-7020U and i3-8130U. They can crunch the daily computing duties very easily. The mid-range AMD Ryzen 5 2500U, Ryzen 7 2700U, and the popular Intel Core i5-8250U options provide even faster performance. They are decent choices for heavier duties. They are also better at gaming than the offered cheaper CPU options. With the AMD Ryzen and Intel Core chips and their integrated graphics processors, users can play many of the lighter game titles, as well as some heavier games on low graphics settings. The entry-level CPU options can be used only for very light game titles. The good thing for gamers is that Lenovo provides a dedicated video card choice in form of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of video memory. It has significantly better performance than the basic integrated GPUs. The GTX 1050 in the IdeaPad 330 is paired with some of the fastest laptop processors on the market- the i5-8300H and i7-8750H. Besides gaming, this combination is also recommended for the most demanding PC tasks like high-def video editing.

System memory size of the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 15 ranges between 4 and 12 Gigabytes. Data storage device choices are a 500GB hard drive, a 1-Terabyte hard drive, and a 1TB HDD combined with a fast 128GB solid state drive. Lenovo has also provided a DVD burner drive option.
