Lenovo Ideapad 530S-15IKB (i5-8250U, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Premium for less? With the IdeaPad 530S, Lenovo has further slimmed down and improved the model in addition to adopting the latest generation of components: a Core i5-8250U, 8 GB RAM, and an FHD anti-glare display. Is this the XPS for the rest of us?

sleek design with great build quality that belies its price point ; relatively stable chassis ; very good general system performance ; mostly straightforward maintenance ; nearly silent operation in most cases ; good temperatures under load ; decent...

somewhat disappointing CPU and GPU performance ; port selection is a bit thin (and ports are somewhat crowded) ; case rigidity pales in comparison to pricier rivals ; only a single internal storage port ; no options for dual-channel RAM ; slow card...

For those interested in an attractive, relatively sturdy, mostly well-rounded entertainment laptop that won’t empty the wallet, the $699 IdeaPad 530S is absolutely worth a look. Thanks to its capable quad-core i5-8250U CPU, plenty of RAM, and fast NVMe...

I have been using the laptop for one month and I'm surprised how light it is. Easy to carry everywhere and the battery last for long hours. I bought this laptop to run programs while I'm working from home and It has been great!

If you don't want a touch screen this PC is fantastic for a number of reasons. Its big enough to type easily and small enough so as to not be too noticeable in a coffee shop

There is not a dedicated area to use to lift the lid open. As I'm getting older I find things more finicky. Even is it was just a little nub it would aid me greatly.

Looks great and fired up quickly from being turned on using the finger print censor

Lost all connection and wouldn’t read any systems for about four but then somehow fixed itself. Not sure how secure that fix is...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Poor Quality Laptop

 

this particular Laptop was made with cheap material. In about 8 months of normal use, the screen hinge got separated from the main body. The screen hinges were glued to the main body. To avoid any disapportiments, please avoid this laptop.
