Lenovo IdeaPad 330-15IGM (Celeron N4100) Laptop Review


15-inch laptop with no fans. The IdeaPad 330 is one of the most affordable 15-inch laptops out there with a starting price of just $300 USD. Our test unit today is an entry-level configuration equipped with a passively cooled Gemini Lake CPU fit for...

upgradeable RAM and storage ; full performance on batteries ; no major throttling issues ; optical drive ; inexpensive ; fanless

poorly calibrated display out of the box ; pulse-width modulation ; no USB Type-C

The Celeron Ideapad 330 is a bit more than just a processor swap when compared to the Ryzen Ideapad 330. USB Type-C is missing, there is no system fan, and the battery is smaller. Our Celeron configuration is about 70 percent and 80 percent slower in...

Lenovo IdeaPad 330-15ARR (Ryzen 3 2200U, Vega 3) Laptop Review


Affordable Ryzen notebook. Lenovo's IdeaPad 330 offers a DVD drive, supports quick-charge and it has an AMD CPU. However, some corners were cut for it to cost only $430. This has affected the case quality and display. Find out what else the IdeaPad 330...

USB Type-C port ; 4-in-1 card reader ; good keyboard ; very quiet DVD-RW drive

loud ClickPad ; short battery runtimes ; slow HDD ; low display brightness ; PWM at low frequency

Our impression of the IdeaPad 330 is fair to middling after our review. Its modern USB Type-C port, the decent port selection and the optical drive are definitely plus points - particularly if you consider its price. The performance of the Ryzen CPU is...

Lenovo IdeaPad 330 15 (Ryzen 5 2500U) Laptop Review


Heavy throttler. The affordable Ryzen-powered laptop starts at just $330 USD with options up to the Ryzen 7 2700U and FHD display. Unfortunately, CPU throttling means owners won't benefit from the full performance of the hardware.

smooth matte surfaces conceal fingerprints ; high-pitched fan ; optical drive ; inexpensive ; USB Type-C

heavy performance throttling ; very inaccurate display ; spongy trackpad ; short battery life

The 15-inch Ideapad 330 is a cheap multimedia solution and so we don't expect very much out of the system. Its chassis is smooth if not bland and its matte panel is great at reducing glare. It's also one of the few laptops shipping with both USB Type-C...
