The IdeaPad 320 series is widely represented on the market and is characterized by a sober design. Here in its Blizzard White finish , the PC is both original and neutral. The back of the lid is uniformly white and smooth and the base has a slight brushed effect that heals the look. Lenovo announces it has reinforced this surface with a metallic finish to serve the strength of the base. In short, the design is open to all but flashy fans will have to go their way. The absence of backlit keyboard is regrettable but the measurements of the PC are in the right average to consider a little mobility.
On the other hand, autonomy limits this destination from the outset. Count on about 5 hours in current use with navigation via Wifi before he succumbs.
At the center of its configuration, its hybrid storage solution will be decisive point of view reactivity. In principle, the 128 GB of the SSD will allow to host the operating system and part of the programs / games while the hard drive of 1000 GB will take care of the storage of your toy library, thus ensuring effective overall performance , fast on / off phases, and accelerated data copies.
Among its other strengths, the PC can rely on its full HD screen (1920 x 1080 px) which offers a higher display density than the standard (1366 x 768 px). This way, you can make the most of your High Definition content and modulate the display to suit your needs. In addition, its anti-reflectivesurface will ensure good visibility by lighting environment by limiting the appearance of reflections. As for the nature of the slab, it is probably TN with narrow viewing angles and a poor colorimetry.
The heart of this Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKBN is based on a low-power Core i5 Kaby Lakesupported by 4 GB of RAM . With this duo, all office tasks are assured (Web browsing, Office suite, video playback) and a little editing (Photoshop light). On the other hand, the multitasking will prove very quickly its limits because of the RAM in small quantity.
The entry-level graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 920MX is also in the game. In this particular case, it will mainly serve to support the processor in the processing of certain tasks and the operation of editing programs. The game is not really in his strings except on the old titles and little greedy with a level of detail very reduced and in a lowered definition (1366 x 768 px).
Finally, the connectivity provides a rather average level with an SD card reader, an HDMI output and three USB ports including two USB 3.0. For data exchange, Gigabit Ethernet and recent generations of Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules are also on the menu. However, the optical drive and the Type-C USB port are missing on this model.
