The Lenovo IdeaPad 330S 15 is a mainstream 15.6-inch laptop. Its highlights are a sleek design with aluminum lid, thin display bezels, keyboard backlight, and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB video card for a good gaming experience.

The display of the 330S 15 has a sharp Full HD resolution and IPS wide viewing angles.

Although the IdeaPad 330S 15 isn’t a gaming notebook, the GTX 1050 mid-grange video card enables excellent graphics performance. It is suitable for all the latest game titles, but in some of them you’ll have to dial down graphics settings for a smooth gameplay. For main computing, the 4.5-pound 330S 15 uses the 8th Generation Intel Core processors – the i5-8250U or i7-8550U. Although they are not as fast as the top-tier Core i5 and i7 H-series chips, they are solid solutions for the daily tasks, gaming, and heavier duties like video editing. Heavier tasks of course consume more energy, but Lenovo has provided a decently capacious 52.5 WHr battery in the IdeaPad 330S 15. It’s good for up to 7 hours of productivity-type use, according to Lenovo.
