Affordable and impressive
Display and Design
The Lenovo Ideapad S300 (59-340450) exhibits a razor sharp 13.3-inch HD LED backlit display that poses images and videos at a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It has a 22.4mm thick outfit which has a silver grey coating on the outside but is completely black on the inside. What is seriously striking is its low weight of 1.8kg.
Processor and OS
Driving the functions of the laptop is a 1.4GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the 3nd generation family working in tandem with a merely 2GB DDR3 RAM operating at 1333MHz. You can of course expand the RAM's capacity up to 4GB for better response. It comes preloaded with DOS which is justified by its price.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
A VGA webcam takes care of the online video calling needs of the user. The Lenovo Ideapad S300 (59-340450) also carries a 2.5 inch SATA hard disk with a capacity of 500GB for meeting the storage purposes. The stereo speakers powered by Dolby Home Theater v2.0 Advanced Audio will make anybody groove with rich and loud sounds.
Battery and Connectivity
With a 4 cell Li-ion battery, the Lenovo Ideapad S300 (59-340450) promises to provide an uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 5 hours, which is seriously amazing for a laptop of this range. The connectivity and networking package loaded in the device consists of features like 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 slot, HDMI out, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, VGA port, Digital media reader and Ethernet port.
The Lenovo Ideapad S300 (59-340450) has been crafted for handling simple computing requirements. A poor RAM and the absence of any OS can be accepted with respect to its price. Ignoring these, the laptop is furnished with powerful speakers and a good processor. A light profile and a durable battery makes it a good travel companion as well.
