Like the entire IdeaPad 320 series, the Lenovo IdeaPad 320-17AST sports a sober design on a redesigned shell for more robustness. Indeed, its monobloc case is coated with metallic finishessupposed to act as a shield of protection. Attention, we are far from the solidity of a metal frame, especially since the structure is entirely in polycarbonate and the assembly is not always very neat. The black lid contrasts with a silver / gray base with a brushed appearance for a rather elegant result. The measurements are average in its category and do not really encourage travel.
Based on a lightweight core composed of a recent AMD A9 Dual Core and 4GB of RAM , the PC will not be able to deal with more demanding than a fairly basic office use articulate around Internet browsing, video playback or Office work. The RAM supports it is essential to provide a minimum of fluidity to the applications and the system but will not allow much room for multitasking.
The addition of a dedicated AMD Radeon 530 graphics card is welcome, even if only a few casual gamers will be satisfied. Basically, most old and undemanding titles will be able to turn in Low / Medium on the native definition of the slab. This card also supports the processor in the current multimedia use.
Storage, for its part, skips the dedicated SSD and put on a conventional hard drive of 1000 GB . If you have not yet tasted the responsiveness of a PC with dedicated SSD, this configuration can be perfect for you and will allow you to store your entire game library without concessions. Otherwise, it will be difficult to ignore its “slowness” in running Windows and programs. Be aware that an M.2 bay is logically free to place a SSD complement if necessary.
For its part, the screen has fairly basic specifications, namely a definition HD (1366 x 768 px) and the support of a TN panel with narrow viewing angles and average colorimetry. The good surprise comes from its antireflection treatment (without certainty) which improves the readability of the image in strong ambient light.
Connectivity is recent and well equipped with a DVD burner, a multiformat SD card reader, an HDMI output and three USB ports including two USB 3.0 and a versatile USB Type-C . The latest generation of WiFi AC and Bluetooth 4.1 modules are also on the menu for faster wireless data transfers. There is no fingerprint reader on this declination.
