The best lenovo laptop at this budget price with amazing features
Reviewed in India on 24 February 2020
i just got it today ...a sealed unit ...it took 2 hours of setup and updates and to tweak settings so that start up programs apps are minimized ....even at 4 gb ram it runs like no other previous laptops ...the key is ithe intel i3 processor which has 3 mb l2 cache ...don't even think about other processors !!!
upgrade to another 8 or 4 gb gb ram for about DEPENDING ON THE SOLDERED ON BOARD RAM ON YOUR IDEAPAD MODEL ONLY between INR 1800 to 3000 and you have a master blaster laptop ..for those who wish to use it for daily office work ...screen is just superb and eye friendly !!!
it has genuine ms office and activation is a breeze if you have an Microsoft account and a wifi connection !!
The battery does drain rapidly ...but that is a small con for a package that i believe no other can offer at this price ....just go for it !!!
EDIT: After a lot of research ...i believe the ram sizes and frequency of both RAMs must be identical for dual channel and best performance , this model has a soldered on board lenovo 2133 mhz RAM with 4gb ddr4 and SODIMM, 260 pin connector....in my final verdict there is no need to change the excellent Western Digital 1 TB HDD at all.
However this is not some gaming platform for modern day gamers but a laptop for working professionals...for daily use after the upgrade ....:)
FINAL UPDATE : after blundering and almost becoming an hardware engineer (lol !!) ...i finally hit the sweet spot for this superb value for money laptop from lenovo ....Samsung 250 gb M.2 Sata SSD and 4 gb ddr4 2133 Mhz Simmtronics RAM.....after the upgrade today at the lenovo service center ....i can' believe that boottime is actually less than 5 seconds and runs like a fighter jet !!!...the catch is the 4 gb 2133 mhz ram ...not easily available !!!
Kudos to amazon and lenovo customer service center !!!!
