Lenovo releases under $1000 laptops lineup just in time for graduation and father’s day. These new affordable laptops offer prices designed to meet nearly any budget in a range of specifications and features.
If you are looking for the biggest value with the most choice, the IdeaPad 330 starts at $249.99 and offers vast versatility in configurations that let you find the right fit at the right price. The IdeaPad 330 comes in three anti-glare screen display sizes at 14, 15 and 17-inches respectively in HD, HD+ and full HD resolution options.
Starting at 4.6 lbs. with the sturdy PC-ABS material chassis, there’s an array of colors available including Platinum Grey, Onyx Black, Mint Green, Midnight Blue, Blizzard White, or Chocolate depending on where you buy and what screen sizes you choose. All laptops come with 1.5-watt stereo speakers tuned with Dolby AudioTM to sound great.
The IdeaPad 330 has several processor, storage and graphic configurations that can master nearly any computing task. The buying ranges start from the Intel Celeron Dual Core N4000 and integrated graphics for the basics and go all the way up to the 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 for gaming performance, with plenty of options in between. There are additional choices for touch-screens, secure fingerprint readers and even DVD drives for watching the media you already own.
If you’re looking for something in between the homebound device and the ultraportable, the IdeaPad 330S (S for slim) drops down about a pound from its workhorse IdeaPad 330 sibling starting at 3.5 lbs. with 0.7-inch thin frame.
Add to that a sleeker, more premium feel with the polished aluminum top cover and three-sided razor narrow screen bezels for broader, life-like viewing. Color options can include Platinum Grey, Midnight Blue, Rose Pink, Blizzard White, and Iron Grey.
Starting at $499.99 the IdeaPad 330S offers numerous step-up options including brighter Full HD 14 and 15-inch screens that use IPS (In-Panel Switching), technology providing better color reproduction and a wider, more accurate viewing angle. There are ergonomic, responsive backlit keyboards and more powerful 2-watt stereo speakers with Dolby Audio. The IdeaPad 330S also has the ability to scale to up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 graphics that both pack a powerful punch.
For the laptop that goes nearly everywhere you do, the IdeaPad 530S makes a great choice at barely 3 lbs. and merely 0.6-inches thin. The IdeaPad 530S starting at $799.99 has the best design and features of the trio across the board.
It’s an all-aluminum polished metal chassis that is as durable as its good looks and comes in Onyx Black, Copper, Liquid Blue, and Mineral Grey colors. 4 The vibrant 300-nits bright 14 and 15-inch IPS displays start at Full HD resolution with the 14-inch capable of scaling scale to an immersive Wide Quad HD (WQHD 2560 x 1440) wide-angle display.
There’s a surprising amount of horsepower packed into such a small, light package with 8th Gen Intel Core processors only and super-fast SSD storage. For graphics, you can up your game with the NVIDIA MX130 or MX150 discrete graphics for a boost in light gameplay or use video and photo editing apps on the go.
It has an excellent keyboard with a spacious Precision Touchpad. Like its IdeaPad cousins you can also opt for the backlit keyboard and/or secure fingerprint reader and on the IdeaPad 530S the Dolby Audio, which is augmented by optimized Harman speakers.
All the IdeaPads come equipped with the latest Windows 10 Home operating system. Besides the requisite Wi-Fi and USB Type-C 3.1, USB 3.0, HDMI, and a 4-in-1 card reader ports, there’s also Rapid Charge— a Lenovo designed extra where 15 minutes plugged in will give you up to 2 hours of use on every system. So whether you’re looking for a thin and light laptop for mobility, or a chic design in an eye-catching hue, this spring Lenovo’s got an IdeaPad that’s right for you.
