This Lenovo Ideapad 320-17IKBR is a 17-inch notebook designed for versatile use.
It delivers good overall performance with its good 8GB of RAM and its low-power Quad i5-8250U Kaby Lake Refresh processor that delivers faster processing than Kaby Lake Core i5 under multi-core architecture software. .
Storage side, this laptop is able to accommodate multiple files and software through its hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB.
Equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology, this notebook benefits from a dual graphics solution consisting of the Intel UHD 620 solution housed within the Quad Core i5 as well as a dedicated GeForce MX150 card. Optimus automatically switches between the two in real time, according to your needs.
To promote autonomy, the Intel UHD 620 is maximized by Optimus despite its modest benefits due to its reduced energy consumption.
Optimus activates the GeForce MX150 when it comes to performing graphic processing that is considered too heavy for the Intel UHD 620. Equipped with Pascal architecture, the GeForce MX150 is able to support moment that one accepts to make some concessions under the titles greedy in graphic resources to benefit from a good fluidity. Of course, whether with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX150, it is possible to watch photos and videos.
With its 16 / 9th format, the screen lends itself well to this use, a classic feature like its 1600×900 resolution. However, the screen is distinguished by its antireflection treatment: it is thus less tiring for the eyes for a long period of time than a glossy and more legible tile in a bright environment.
As for the embedded connector, it is good. We find integrated 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 for connections and remote communications, audio and Ethernet ports, 1 HDMI video output convenient to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
