Like the entire IdeaPad 320 series, which is very well represented on the market, the Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15AST sports a sober design on a redesigned shell for more robustness. Indeed, its monobloc case is coated with metallic finishes supposed 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 class and do not really encourage transportation.
Autonomy should be around 4 hours in Internet browsing via Wifi, it is little given its meager performance but correct for the price.
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.
A welcome reactivity seen his frugal heart composed of a recent AMD A6 Dual Core and 4 GB of RAM . In being, the PC will not be able to face more demanding than a rather basic office use; understand 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.
Needless to say, this 15-inch will not be cut for the game. The graphics is based on the chip Radeon R4 integrated processor that will be armed only for common use (video playback, navigation).
Regarding the screen, its specifications are all that is standard for the price. The definition is basic (1366 x 768 px), the glossy treatment and the TN type slab. Result, reflections may appear if you work in a very bright environment (back to a window), the angles of vision are narrow and the colorimetry not very faithful.
To conclude with the connectivity, the level is good even if the DVD burner is missing and the presence of USB Type-C port is questioned. There is another SD card reader, an HDMI output and two USB ports including a USB 3.0. For data exchange, Gigabit Ethernet and the latest generations of Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules are also on the menu.
