The screen benefits indeed equipped with the touch technology multi-touch: by applying at least one finger on it (or the stylus provided), by pressures / gestures, one can interact with the system and the software.
IPS, the screen also offers a more accurate colorimetry than average with comfortable viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It lends itself well to the display of High Definition content as the videos by its definition Full HD accurate its format 16 / 9th. As it is tactile, it is decked out with a brilliant treatment. As a result, it makes the colors vivid but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
This Ultrabook hybrid is well equipped in terms of connection with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its HDMI video output useful for connecting easily to a TV or a monitor for example, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.

Lenovo Ideapad C340-15IWL-120 (81N5003UFR) performance and battery life
The Lenovo Ideapad C340-15IWL-120 (81N5003UFR) can appeal to those looking for a compact High Definition laptop convertible tablet for versatile mobile use.
With its weight of 2 Kg and its finesse, this Ultrabook 2-in-1 is easy to transport. It also offers a battery life of about 10 hours in light use!
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components starting with the storage entrusted to a SSD.
Thanks to the SSD, we get a significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a hard disk, with startups / stops and software launches much faster.
Recall that a SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more shock resistant and silent. In addition here we have a SSD whose capacity of 512 GB competes with hard drives, which is still too infrequent.
In addition, this hybrid Ultrabook takes advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology that evaluates the graphics needs in real time. In function, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the processor-integrated Intel UHD 620 and the GeForce MX230 dedicated card.
Optimus favors the maximum Intel UHD 620 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce MX230 more greedy and powerful.
The GeForce MX230 is able to run graphics-hungry games and of course allows just as the Intel UHD 620 to watch photos and videos.
The heart of this computer also delivers good overall performance able to satisfy many users. It consists of 8 GB RAM and a low-consumption Whiskey Lake processor Quad Core i5-8265U.
However, those who want to regularly perform heavy work in CPU resources will benefit from opting for a PC with a non-low-power processor.
