Chassis, connectors, Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKB display (81DC019DFR)
Its Onyx Black design gives it a sober and elegant look.
This notebook has a good connection consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 for connections and remote communications, audio and Ethernet ports, an HDMI video output convenient to easily connect to a TV or monitor or 2 USB compatible both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The keyboard is of course equipped with a numeric keypad but no optical unit is integrated into this precise model ( the photos are international and valid for all models ).
The screen stands out with its antireflection treatment making it less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time than a glossy and more readable tile in a bright environment (ex: outdoor). For the rest, it adopts classic features with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16 / 9th format suitable for playing videos.
Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKBR (81DC00PLFR)
The Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKBR (81DC00PLFR) is a 15-inch notebook designed for everyday use.
It enjoys a great asset in terms of storage with its hybrid solution offering both a consistent capacity thanks to the hard drive of 1000 GB and a great reactivity thanks to the SSD. With its 128 GB, the SSD is expected to house the main software in addition to the system, the rest taking place on the hard drive.
The SSD supports the heart of this computer on a daily basis. It consists of 4 GB of RAM and a Pentium Dual Core 4417U low power Kaby Lake Refresh processor. The latter shows its limits under the demanding software in processor resources.
Such a duo delivers good performance in multitasking content and everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet. As it is not supported by a dedicated GPU, which is logical given the positioning of this PC, this computer is not designed for the game and more generally heavy graphics.
Nevertheless, it allows of course to watch photos and videos thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel HD 610 part integrated Pentium.
As for battery life, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer. It is certainly not as thin and lightweight as an Ultrabook, but its thickness and weight remain fairly contained to transport it from time to time without difficulty.
