The Cons: Dim, low-res show; Short battery life; Underwhelming execution
Decision: The Lenovo IdeaPad 320 has short battery life, lackluster showing and a low goals show. It’s a no go, particularly at the cost.
Cost and Configuration Options
The IdeaPad 320 that I tried expenses $423, and accompanies an Intel Core i3-7100U processor, 4GB of RAM and a 1TB 5,400-rpm HDD.
To the extent sub-$500 workstations go, the IdeaPad 320 looks fine. The main element that points out the top is the polished Lenovo logo in the upper left corner.
The IdeaPad 320 has a nice number of ports.
Considering the IdeaPad 320’s 15.6-inch show upsetting to take a gander at is putting it mildly. There’s no reason that the goals ought to be 1366 x 768 on that huge of a board. The showcase is likewise disappointingly diminish.
Console and Touchpad
While the IdeaPad 320 makes a few penances at its ease, it holds Lenovo’s mark console quality. These matte dim, shield-formed keys were easily clicky to type on.
Execution and Graphics
The IdeaPad 320’s Core i3-7100U processor with 4GB of RAM was just ready to deal with 15 Google Chrome tabs and a 1080p YouTube video before it began giving indications of log jam. Indeed, even the Windows 10 search bar slacked when I endeavored to draw up the gadget chief.
I’ve seen better battery life in PCs with a RTX 2070 GPU than I have on the IdeaPad. After the 320 constantly surfed the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of splendor, the battery kept going just 4 hours and 24 minutes, which is over 2 hours shorter than the standard PC normal (6:48).
Lenovo’s 720p webcam really isn’t terrible. It caught my blue and green shirt appropriately well, in spite of the fact that the hues were somewhat darker in the picture. The regions around the roof lights were moderately noticeably.
The IdeaPad 320’s low power comes with one silver coating: it remains cool. After the workstation gushed a 15-minute 1080p video, the underside hit 83 degrees, which is well under our 95-degree comfort limit.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 320 has two saving graces: its clicky console and its tremendous choice of ports. Be that as it may, between the IdeaPad 320’s poor battery life, average execution and low-res show, it’s difficult to prescribe it.
