Lenovo Ideapad 100S Notebook Review

 

Windows 10 netbook. Lenovo proves that you don't need to have fancy convertibles or detachables to make a good netbook. While a healthy number of features had to be cut, the super-light Ideapad 100S is a bargain for just under $200.

long battery life, small and very lightweight, fanless design, HDMI-out, inexpensive, good build quality, easy maintenance

very cool color temperature without calibration, no WWAN, GPS, 802.11ac, USB 3.0, touchscreen, or IPS options, no other CPU, RAM, or resolution options, touchpad does not support multi-touch, backlight could be brighter, poor contrast, throttling under...

The IdeaPad 100S targets a specific group of users who want a very small and very light notebook for simple tasks when traveling. Users who view detachables and convertibles as a sort of gimmick can fall back to this standard netbook with no such...

Lenovo Ideapad 100S-11 review: A promising portable with storage issues

 

Sight unseen, what would be your expectations for a laptop that costs only $180? Come on, be honest. Probably lower than dirt. Well, if I were talking about the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-11, you'd be dead wrong—at least until you ran up against its...

Super inexpensive ; Great, near full-sized keyboard ; Looks and feels like a classy small laptop ; Great battery life

Display has narrow viewing angle ; 32GB of storage limits usefullness

The 100s-11 has more the feel of a small laptop than the netbooks it descended from. The price is extremely tempting, but 32GB of storage is frustratingly small for a Windows machine. Wait for the 64GB version unless your computing needs are light in...

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11 (80R2003XUS)

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11 is a well-built ultraportable laptop that features a lightweight design, competent performance, and more than 11 hours of battery life, at a very low price.

Very inexpensive. Light and well-made build. Excellent battery life in testing.

32-bit OS. Narrow viewing angles on display. Keyboard exhibits some flex. Average performance on some of our tests.

Conclusion At such a low price, the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11 is a great ultraportable, boasting outstanding battery life and a light, but sturdy build. A full Windows 10 computer for $159.99 is an excellent value, and the machine's hardware is plenty...

Lenovo IdeaPad 100S ( white)

 

The latest example of this new low-cost computer trend is the Lenovo Ideapad 100S, an 11-inch clamshell laptop that sells for $199 in the US (£179 in the UK, AU$299 in Australia). It's among the most refined of the ultra-budget PCs, but it's not the...

The Lenovo 100S has a colorful, fingerprint-resistant shell, a great keyboard and excellent battery life.

Without a touchscreen, the outdated touchpad is even more frustrating. It will slow down under moderate workloads, and the low-resolution screen is as basic as it gets.

The Lenovo Ideapad 100S has the best keyboard we've seen on a low-budget laptop, and more than enough battery life to get through day, but a dated touchpad holds it back.

Lenovo Ideapad 100S review

 

There was a time, not too many years ago, when $999 was considered the cutoff price for a budget laptop. How times, and expectations, have changed. Today, along with $50 Amazon Fire tablets and sub-$200 smartphones, it's possible to get a reasonably...

Lenovo 100S Chromebook

 

The Lenovo 100S Chromebook offers a sleek design along with solid performance and battery life in our tests at a price that's low, even for a Chrome-OS-based laptop.

Low price. Sleek design. Solid performance and battery life in testing.

No touch screen. Narrow viewing angles. Poor-quality webcam.

Conclusion Our Editors' Choice chromebook remains the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02); its screen is smaller at 10.1 inches, but its IPS panel offers great viewing quality, as well as touch and convertible tablet-style capability. If you're faithful...

Lenovo Ideapad 100S Review: Windows 10 on a Budget

 

Why buy a Chromebook when you can have Windows? This lightweight and affordable laptop weighs just 2.2 pounds, runs Windows 10 and costs $200. Is it inexpensive or just cheap? Read on to find out.

Low price ; Lightweight and attractive ; Good-size keyboard ; Decent sound

Just 32GB of built-in storage, with 17GB available to the user ; Screen colors aren't vivid, and resolution is just adequate

The days when inexpensive Windows laptops were heavy and ugly are behind us. The Lenovo Ideapad 100S is very portable and easy on the wallet. No one is going to mistake it for a high-end model, but it’s surprisingly good for a budget one.

Lenovo Ideapad 100S

 

Just how much laptop can you buy these days for under $200? Starting at $199, the Lenovo Ideapad 100S is a lightweight, long-lasting Windows 10-powered laptop with a touch of style, good viewing angles and over 9 hours of battery life. Like other...

Long battery life; Attractive design; Good viewing angles; Large keys with solid feedback

Keyboard flexes; Touchpad doesn't support gestures

The IdeaPad 100S gives you an attractive chassis, solid performance, free Office 365 and long battery life for under $200.

Three things to know about Lenovo’s Ideapad 100S

 

Lenovo's Ideapad 100S is small, cheap and just right (for many users). We recently reviewed it in full, and you'll have to check out that full review to get all of the details. Following that, though, we're back with a trio of notable highlights to get...

Of course, a budget laptop has to make sacrifices to hit the low price point; doing so is always a balancing act, but not all manufacturers get it right. Fortunately, Lenovo trimmed where one wasn't likely to notice and tossed in some perks to...

Lenovo Ideapad 100S Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo's cherry-red $199 laptop is thin and light, with a respectable keyboard, touch pad, and screen for the price. Just know its performance limitations (last-gen Atom CPU, 2GB RAM) before diving in.

Thin and light ; Good screen for a low-cost laptop ; Attractive red shell ; Ships with a one-year subscription to Office 365

Extremely cramped onboard storage ; 2GB of RAM, Atom processor limits users to basic tasks ; Low-res Webcam

With an affordable price, an attractive shell, and a good keyboard and screen, the Lenovo Ideapad 100S is a very good compact budget laptop for those who don't need to do much more than surf the Web, watch the occasional video, and create school or...
