1. Aluminum design able to rotate
The Lenovo Ideapad 330s is constructed of polished aluminum which gives it a sleek look with a premium touch. It is available in four different colors: platinum gray, white, blue or steel gray. It is not too heavy or thick a laptop. It weighs exactly 1.67 kilos and is 1.89 centimeters thick . It is true that it does not come close to the number of models like the Lenovo Yoga 920, although it maintains a good balance to carry it with us anywhere we go.
Another of its great advantages is that we can rotate it completely, so that the laptop is completely stretched or folded to make use only of the screen. This is always much more comfortable to adapt according to what moments or situations. As for the panel, the company has opted for the 14-inch format. In its most basic configuration it has HD resolution. However, we can choose three other versions with a higher resolution: Full HD of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, which results in a density of 157 dots per inch. There is also mentioning an average brightness of 250 nits. It is true that it is not one of the brightest laptop screens, although it is decent.
2. Guaranteed power
Inside the Lenovo Ideapad 330s there is room for the latest generation of Intel Core i3 or i5 processors, accompanied by 4 or 8 GB of RAM. The internal storage capacity is 128GB or 256GB in SSD format. It is also possible to purchase it with a dedicated AMD Radeon 540 graphics card with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory. Although it is not a laptop intended for frequent gaming, this extra can come in handy for casual gamers. Keep in mind that independent graphics cards are only going to depend on their own processing power. In this way, we will enjoy smoother graphics, better performance when playing games and less image fragmentation without jeopardizing the speed and overall responsiveness of the computer.
3. Sound with Dolby Audio technology
Another key to the Lenovo Ideapad 330s is that it has Dolby Audio technology. What does this mean? Well, the sound is much better than that of other equipment that does not have this feature. This is always a plus in its favor, especially if we usually watch movies and listen to music from the speakers.
To all this we must add that the team is governed by Windows 10, the latest version of Microsoft's platform. In this way, it is possible to use the Cortana assistant to locate anything or ask for help. This version also features the new Microsoft Edge browser , faster, safer and more fluid than its predecessor Internet Explorer.
4. Battery with fast charge
At the battery level the Ideapad 330s does not disappoint at all. According to figures given by Lenovo, the laptop is capable of holding up to seven hours of use with each charge. Of course, it must be clear that they are indicative figures. Normally, it is very strange that they end up being fulfilled despite having the settings at minimum. In principle, it should give us for three or four hours with moderate use. This means that it is not really intended to be used for a long time away from home or for long trips.
In any case, the Ideapad 330s comes with a Rapid Charge fast charging system, so with 15 minutes of charging we will have a time of up to 2 hours. This always gives a lot of play if during an outing we can charge it for a short time in a bar or shopping center to continue later with our tasks already far from a socket.
This model also has a wide range of connectivity options: WiFi AC, Bluetooth 4.1, 2 USB 3.0, 1 USB type C, HDMI, card reader and headphone port.
