If you are wondering through the internet for searching for good laptop for under 500 dollars, then you probably ever got into this laptop. Ideapad 320 is the new model that is introduced by Lenovo as the machine that aims people with low budget. Both of performance and design are good here since the company really put their effort on making the machine looks appeal to many people. Here, You will get 12 GB of RAM that combined with AMD A12 processor that in my opinion is better than Intel Celeron processor.
Before you decide to get new product, then you probably have to look yourself into this one because there are so many good things it promises in the return for the price. 12 GB RAM and 1 TB HDD are great thing that rarely to find on this price range. Is the product really that worth for the price? You are going to find it soon.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see it further and look how it performs on handling every day task and multimedia entertainment. To make it easier for you to understand, lets we jump into the article.
The 320 is dressed in platinum gray tone that looks great and does not look cheap at all. The body is made from plastic, but the material is tough and I did not found any problem on the build quality. The plastic lid combine nicely with darker chassis in the below. The front edge is designed in curved wedge and really reminds me of Apple Macbook Air. There is Lenovo logo that placed in the top left of the lid.
Like other 15.6 laptop, the Ideapad is quite heavy and big, it’s measured at 14.9 inches x 10.8 inches x 0.9 inches in 4.4 pounds. Never ever to expect some slim design like you find on the Dell XPS 13 because it’s not going to happen. But, I still it as great and I really enjoy it a lot.
The ports are placed on the left and there are HDMI, Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, audio jack, SD card reader, and USB-C port. The USB-C port is still in the first generation, but transferring or moving data could be done in fast and efficient way.back to menu ↑
The non-backlit keyboard that it has is very satisfactory. The keys have good distant travel and all of them are big and not tiny one except for the tiny delete key. During the test, I was able to type nicely in some hours without having some problems on my fingers. I was actually quite surprised that it feels good at all. The touch pad also performs nicely and it supports of multiple gestures from Windows 10.
My only complaint here is located on the low resolution display. It still stuck with 1366 x 768 resolution in 15 inch screen. I just hope the company is able to put slighter better resolution although the image quality is crisp and full of details. I guess the price is really talking here.

Performance And Battery Life
Here, I guess this is probably the biggest selling I find here. The performance is really better especially on handling multi-tasking and graphic work. The system features of AMD A12 CPU which is slightly better than most Intel Celeron laptop. The graphic sector is also quite good even though it has integrated card. Opening multiple tabs would be done easily without any lag. Guess, you could do more with its 12 GB RAM.
The battery life is mediocore where it only lasts for around 7 hours. The result is actually far in comparable with device like Swift 3 that lasts for 13 hours in our test. But, 7 hours is more than enough to do anything. The charging process is fast, this problem is not really big to think on this case. Just go with it if you are okay with this case.back to menu ↑
