Lenovo IdeaPad 330S-15IKB 81F5004EUS 15.6″ Laptop (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Gray)
The Lenovo IdeaPad 330S-15IKB 81F5004EUS is an ordinary 15.6-inch Windows laptop priced at $500. But, it has some great features. In particular, a powerful 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U quad-core processor, fast solid state drive storage, and keyboard backlight. The “platinum gray” laptop also looks good and modern, thanks to very thin LCD bezels and sleek 0.8″ profile. In addition, the IdeaPad 330S-15IKB 81F5004EUS is a light notebook with weight of 4 pounds. What’s not so good on this model is its budget-class 15.6″ screen with mediocre 1366-by-768-pixel resolution and TN panel technology with narrow viewing angles. Furthermore, the included solid state drive provides great system responsiveness but its capacity of only 128GB is quite limited by today’s standards. The 330S-15IKB 81F5004EUS features usual system memory capacity of 8 Gigabytes, which is enough for day-to-day multi-tasking. Laptop’s Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics is good only for light games. There’s no info on battery capacity at the time of this writing. We only know it’s a 2-cell unit.
