Chassis, Connectivity, Display Lenovo V330-15IKB (81AX0127FR)
It has an elegant and sober look with its Iron Gray finish with anthracite brushed metal finish. It can be recharged at 50% in 30 minutes and 80% in 60 minutes, thanks to QuickCharge technology.
This computer has good connectivity including 2 USB 3.1 Type-C (usually against 1 maximum), 2 HDMI video outputs and VGA (more rare) against 1 usually are convenient for easily connect this PC to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port and 2 USB 3.0 compatible (USB 2.0 compatible), guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if plugged into USB 3.0 devices.
While it tends to disappear through the modes of dematerialization and finesse, an optical unit is well integrated here. As a result, you can read and write CDs and DVDs with this computer.
With its precise Full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and especially to videos in its 16 / 9th format. With its anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more legible than a glossy panel in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
In addition this laptop has a biometric reader to identify easily and securely on the system, and this via Windows Hello.
This computer works more precisely under Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than Windows 10 classic thanks to its advanced tools of network management and security like BitLocker.
Performance, battery life of Lenovo V330-15IKB (81AX0127FR)
The Lenovo V330-15IKB (81AX0127FR) is a 15-inch high-definition responsive laptop designed for professional and everyday use.
It benefits from a quad core processor i5-8250U low consumption Kaby Lake Refresh and 8 GB of RAM very useful in multitasking. Thus, it is even to satisfy many users in terms of overall performance.
To regularly perform heavy work in processor resources, it will however prefer to turn to a computer with a non-low power processor.
This notebook is also very responsive everyday because it has a SSD storage. It brings a better fluidity than a hard disk as well as starts / stops and launches applications much faster.
Remember that compared to a hard drive, a SSD is much faster but also more robust, more energy efficient and quiet. But as with most embedded SSDs, here the capacity is lower than the standard hard drives.
We find more precisely integrated into this PC a SSD of 256 GB enough for many uses. But if it proves too fair, you can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution because we benefit from fast transfers.
This computer does not target those who want to do heavy graphics. Players will pass their way because no dedicated GPU is shipped. It is the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 which is responsible for all graphics. Modest, it still allows of course to view photos and videos.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight around 2Kg and the compactness facilitate transport without making it an Ultrabook, plan about 4h30 of battery operation surfing the Internet via Wi-Fi.
