Lenovo IdeaPad 500s-14ISK Notebook Review

 

Pushing its luck? Lenovo has presented us a 14-inch lightweight laptop, that aims to be an ultra-mobile high-end device with a ULV Core i7 and GeForce 940M. On the whole, the plan proves to be successful - however, the display does not meet this claim...

excellent build quality ; very good input devices ; high system performance ; quiet even under load ; low power consumption and temperature increase ; affordable for its category

unacceptable display ; battery capacity too low ; as a result: short battery runtime ; opening the device is far from easy ; includes virtually no accessories

Sometimes certain design decisions of notebook manufacturers are simply strange. With the IdeaPad 500s-14ISK, Lenovo did many things right. From build quality to input devices and emissions and the very good system and gaming performance, the IdeaPad...

Powerful, light, and thin but with lots of software issues

 

There is a Power Management software pre-installed by Levnovo which messes with the default Windows settings. This results in the screen remaining black after the laptop have been woken up from Sleep Mode. I got my laptop and had this happen so I...

- i5 CPU, 4GB RAM make for smooth and fast experience - 14" 1080p screen looks great - Light and thin, ideal for taking to school or work

- Integrated GPU have very little VRAM (128 MB) - Lots of Lenovo bloatware - Bloatware can cause screen to not turn back on (explained in "Other")

SSD and i7u for a great price

 

I re-imaged the machine right out of the box in order to maximize the storage capacity. This also served to remove bloatware and allowed me to update all of the drivers I could to the latest versions. An interesting note here...the machine will PXE...

Great performance, lightweight, slim, power efficient, and sleek. The keyboard and touchpad feel nice and are highly functional. For me, an SSD is a must. This seems to limit affordable options, but this machine has been a real winner, so far. SSD and...

The LCD has some slight "fuzziness." The color seems fine, just that it doesn't appear quite as crisp as other 1080p LCD screens. Overall, not a deal breaker, but it's enough of a con to take half of an egg off. Not a con for me, but the keyboard is...

Very good consumer-grade notebook.

 

Battery life is OK (neither all-day nor noticeably short). I bought this for my wife, a casual user who will do basic photo, music, office tasks on it. It will perform these tasks with aplomb at a reasonable price. Upgrading the 1TB HDD to a 250GB SSD...

Thin, light, well-constructed (despite extensive use of plastic), matte screen, 1080p resolution, backlit keyboard, keyboard is amongst the best I've used on a consumer-grade notebook.

Bloatware, bloatware, bloatware...took nearly 30 minutes to remove all of the bloatware.

Not sure if it is the laptop or Windows 10 which make it slow at many occasions. There is this annoying moving circle that keeps coming when you try to open a new excel file or new tab on chrome or right click on something. The .right side of the mouse...
