Review Update Lenovo IdeaPad S300-MA14CGE Notebook

 

Down to earth. No gaming ambitions, no high-performance: Lenovo's

Good price-performance ratio; Stylish casing; Light and slim; Ultrabook feel; Decent application performance; Very quiet operating noise; Very low waste heat

Only average battery runtimes; Not suitable for games; Limited viewing angles; No Gigabit Ethernet; Spongy key stroke; Few interfaces; Intense bluish cast

That the cheaper version seems to be better conceived than the more expensive one.

Lenovo IdeaPad S300 review

 

It's undeniable that the Lenovo is banking on the IdeaPad S300's 22.4mm thin form factor and its affordable price tag to gain market traction. Taking those two factors in to consideration, we think that Lenovo will have a great shot at the...

Lenovo IdeaPad S300 review

 

A budget, pseudo-Ultrabook with plenty of power and good looks

Ivy Bridge performance ; Low price tag ; Connectivity ; Great design ; Good keyboard

Poor battery life ; Quick start needs improving ; Wasted gaming potential ; Heavy ; No SSD

Lenovo has been coming out with some really good Ultrabooks of late, with its IdeaPad U410 offering excellent performance and features for less than you would expect. The company's latest offering is the Lenovo IdeaPad S300 - a smaller and more...
