The latest laptop up for review is the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80R200BRUS which is an ultra portable option that is designed for those who need something that is quick and easy to take on the go or as a nice compliment as a second computer for around the house. Compact laptops usually come with some limitations so below we are going to review this model to get a good understanding of its up and downs to see if it is a good option for your next purchase.
Light and compact are easily the top benefits that the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80R200BRUS has to offer making it ideal for those who need some of the capabilities of a full sized laptop while not being much bigger then a smartphone. With a total weight under 1 KG and a very slim profile of just 0.69 inches it is easy to see why those looking for lightweight options are impressed by this design.
For those on the go just being light and slim is not enough to make it a great option you also need to be able to get some work done without needing to scramble for a power source. This IdeaPad can give you up to a full 8 hours of battery life which is pretty impressive.
One thing we haven’t talked about yet and is always a factor when purchasing a new laptop model is the price. Lenovo has done a great job of providing a very low cost option that will easily fit into anybodies budget.
Not everything is perfect on this lightweight model from Lenovo and as expected a model that comes this cheap has to be lacking in some areas. One of the biggest areas that consumers should be aware of is its lack of power due to the lower end processor and small amount of system memory that has been included. This laptop only has a fraction of the performance you would expect to see in a full sized model so those who have high demands on their computers will quickly notice the limitations.
Storage space is at a premium on the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80R200BRUS with the smaller flash storage that has been provided. With just 32 GB of capacity it doesn’t take long to fill this up and again is much lower then you would find in a full sized model.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 100S 80R200BRUS is a great option for a very specific market. Those looking for something lightweight and portable while also being on a budget will want to take a close look at this device but keep in mind it lacks anywhere close to the performance and capabilities of a full sized device.
