Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Ideapad C340-14API-302 (81N60023FR)
Its light silver Platinum Gray chassis makes this PC elegant and discreet but also original since it can open 360 ° to transform into a Tablet.
The screen takes advantage of multi-touch touch technology. Therefore, by affixing at least one finger or the supplied stylus, one can interact with the system and the software by simple pressure / gestures.
The screen also lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Due to its touch technology, the screen is bright. It is therefore subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside) but strengthens the colors.
Above the screen, there is a webcam equipped with the Privacy Shutter function to obstruct it in order to better respect privacy.
If some people regret the absence of a chiclet keyboard backlight system, the presence of a biometric reader will be appreciated by users who wish to be able to authenticate themselves on the system by fingerprint recognition, and this via Windows Hello technology.
The connectivity built into this thin and light 2-in-1 laptop is good, moreover, including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac wireless modules to communicate and connect remotely, an output Convenient HDMI video to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Ideapad C340-14API-302 (81N60023FR)
The Lenovo Ideapad C340-14API-302 (81N60023FR) is a compact High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet for general purpose portable use.
This 2-in-1 computer convertible into a Tablet delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users. It is indeed structured around a good amount of 8 GB RAM very useful in multitasking and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Quad Core low consumption Ryzen 5 3500U Picasso processor.
In addition, although it does not have a dedicated graphics card, this hybrid laptop is capable of running low-power games thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 integrated into the Picasso which is significantly better than the UHD 620 integrated into the Intel processors. The Vega 8 is positioned at the level of an entry-level GPU and of course allows you to view photos and videos.
The on-board SSD storage clearly brings better responsiveness and fluidity to this PC than if it were equipped with a hard drive. We take advantage of, for example, much faster start / stop and launch of applications.
Remember that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, more energy efficient and quieter.
However here the capacity of 256 GB of the SSD is lower than the standard of hard disks. However, it is suitable for a number of uses. But if it turns out to be too fair, we can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device is therefore an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this elegant silver 2-in-1 computer convertible into a Tablet whose transport is facilitated by the compactness and the controlled weight.
