      Nice but just a tad slow browsing speed

      Posted
      TimTime

      Thought I'd give a run down on this laptop after having it a week. I paid $149 for this while it was on sale. For $149 it is a decent deal. I don't think I'd spend $199 for it and definitely wouldn't buy it at it's normal price of $249. I like the build quality a lot. Even though it's plastic it is very strong and durable and feels very good in the hand. Fairly light but yet strong. No fingerprint problems. The cover is nice and smooth. The display is just ok. Not bad but it is a TN panel so the viewing angles are not going to be great. For browsing or working on documents it is fine. For watching movies the blacks are going to look bad and washed out. If you are use to an IPS screen you probably won't like it. But we are talking $149 here. Speed. I find the speed is fine except for browsing. Runs MS Office just fine. It even runs Microsoft flight Simulator 2004 fine (13 year old game and running it from the SD card getting 50+ frame rates). For todays games it might not be so good. For browsing it runs Edge OK, but Firefox and Chrome are slow. Comparing this to my Acer Chromebook 14 and my Chromebook is a speed demon compared to this Lenovo. Its ok for light browsing but you can really tell it is only 2gb of ram as it really needs 4. Just to clarify, this runs a 64bit version of Windows 10, not 32bit. And that's unfortunate because it would run better on 32bit and you would get another 5-6 gb of space if it did. Alas there are no 32bit drivers for touchpad and other hardware, believe me because I tried installing 32 bit on it. Here's whats funny. I have a 2 year old AcerX205ta 32bit WIn10 and with the same software installed, the Acer has 12gb left compared to this Lenovo which has 5gb left. So you are stuck with 64bit. Pros: Form factor, build quality, keyboard. Can live with the display. Price. Speed ok for some games and Office. AC wifi. USB-C and USB 3.0 ports. Micro SD slot. Battery life 8+hours. Light enough for travel. Cons: Browsing speed. RAM. HD space. Display for movies.

      Excellent PC for its purpose – with Linux

      I think it’s worth the $128.99 open box or the $149.99 sale price, but in my humble opinion, I don’t believe it’s worth the regular price of $249.99. I played around with Win 10 and found it a bit slow for my taste which was no surprise given the 2GB of memory and 1.10 GHz dual-core Intel Celeron processor. After all, this is an entry level, light use system. After creating a USB recovery drive https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht117511 to provide a way back to Win 10, I downloaded Linux Mint 19 Tara Cinnamon edition https://linuxmint.com/download.php, created a bootable USB drive using Rufus, then performed a scratch install. Linux ran much better since it’s lighter than Win 10 and used disk space was freed up as well. I chose Linux Mint Cinnamon edition since the desktop is more Windows-like than other Linux distros. Linux Mint is based off of Ubuntu which has proven over the years to be one of the most popular Linux distros ever with a very strong and helpful support community. If you’re not happy with the Win 10 performance then give Linux a try, you may be pleasantly surprised. There’s plenty of flavors to choose from and the price is right – they’re all free. Care should be taken however which flavor to use as some distos require more resources than others. If you’re new to Linux and like Windows then I would suggest installing the Linux Mint Cinnamon edition. Although running Linux won’t transform the Lenovo 120S-141AP Laptop into a high performance high multi-task system, it will, in my opinion, provide a more enjoyable and less frustrating user experience for surfing the web, creating word like documents with LibreOffice, using Spotify, etc. Give it a try. If you create the USB recovery drive as noted above, then you can always go back to Win 10. Experiment, learn and most importantly, have fun. A 62 year old nerd.

        This is an entry level, light use computer system. It uses Windows 10 Home 64-Bit as its operating system, which requires less than 2GB of RAM to run. There is a 32GB solid state hard drive on this device for fast boot up and file recall. This device has the latest WiFi capability, with 802.11AC connectivity. There is a free 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365, a $69.00 value on this device. If your requirements fit this profile, this device is a good choice. lenovo

      Look, if I were to review this computer against NORMAL computers, the Lenovo ideapad 120S would get a 1 star. But this PC is not intended to compete against those computers, they are in completely different categories. Reviewing this PC for its INTENDED PURPOSE, that being a super budget PC that competes with the plethora of Google Chromebooks, this computer definitely deserves a 5 out of 5. The keyboard is probably the best feature. It is one of the best I've used...very responsive. No backlit keyboard, oh well. Webcam is there (its OK, nothing special). HDMI port, USB 3.0, extra USB port, USB C, fullsize HDMI, microSD slot, and indicator LED for power and HD (left side). The bezzel of the screen has plenty of space for Neonode AirBar (sold by Best Buy) which can add touch capabilities. And what is very nice is that out of the box the bloatware is very limited, just McAfee and a couple Lenovo Apps. The only real downside of this computer is the 32GB of storage and the 1.1 GHz dual core Celeron processor. Look, Windows is snappy and boot time is about 25 seconds. It is good enough for what it is. The 32GB drive is pretty is "eh" considering the space. I wish it was 64GB, but it will do. Out of the box there is like 12GB free. After installing Office 2016 and installing updates (the computer runs Windows 10 Home v1703), you get down to around 7.5GB free. It is tight. I recommend downloading the latest Windows 10 ISO, v1709 creators update, creating USB installation media and installing fresh, cleaning out all the partitions. The drive after doing this will offer you 28.5GB of space and after updates and Office 2016, you wil be left with around 9.5GB free. Definitely worth it for the extra 2 GB. The lid will not open with one hand. You need two. But, it is smooth. The laptop is super light and the power adapter is very portable. I highly recommend it if you need a Chromebook type PC.

        Thank you for choosing the Lenovo IdeaPad 120s-14 laptop. This system ships with a free 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365, there is no need to install Office 2016, if you did, this is using up hard drive space needlessly and may conflict with the Microsoft Office programs already installed. If you need more storage space, there is a micro-SD card slot on the device that can be used to add storage space. lenovo

      Not good for a grandmother

      Lack of space on the main storage drive is not the issue when it is out of the box but once you put antivirus, updates and some utility programs it becomes obvious that this machine is not designed for anything. Resetting it to factory is not possible any more at this point since win 10 requires at least 8 GB just to do a reset with option of wiping out all the files. It becomes a storage ‘trap’ so to say. Screen is very dim and colors are not bright. It is a very poor quality. Under certain light conditions it hurts to look at it. Track pad is not usable. They should not even have bothered to put it there. Had to use mouse with this laptop. Camera produces some image. Speakers are pretty horrible. Can hardly hear at the highest setting. Computing speeds leave much to be desired. Browsing web takes effort for this machine. If you have multiple tabs open that will really slow you down. Office programs is the only thing it handles well. Battery lasts long time. I was glad to get rid of this machine. Would never recommend it to a friend or an enemy. Do not fall into this storage trap. Happy shopping!

      This laptop is dependent on what you need/use it for. The memory of course isn't large at all, which is stated in the features. I've deleted a lot of things off if it and there's still not enough room to update Windows 10 which is requiring 8GB. However, I am still able to surf the internet, use Microsoft Word, and download a few other things like the antivirus protection that came with it for 6 months. In my opinion if you need something mainly for internet or maybe typing up papers and saving to a flash drive, and you're on a budget, this laptop is fine. But, if you have to download a lot of content this is definitely not the computer for you. Although I wasn't able to update Windows 10, it seems to working fine thus far. I gave it a 3 because it is very average/basic, however if that's what you're lookig for then it would technically be a 5. The battery life is decent, resolution is fine, and I've had it for 7 months and it's still working.

        According to Microsoft Support, you can use an external hard drive, formatted NTFS, when downloading Windows 10 updates for the needed temporary files. Here is a link to an explanation:

      Purchased this as a birthday present for my Mother whose old laptop had died from old age about a month ago. Everything runs fast and the touchpad + keyboard is comfortable, which is all she really needs it for. The only real downside is the storage space, which is extremely low compared to other laptops. It only has 32 GB of Storage with Flash Memory and about half of that was already being used by programs that came pre-installed on the laptop, which leaves you with about 16-20 GB to play around with. That said if all you're planning to do is browse Facebook and watching Youtube and Netflix with a little bit of office work you can't go wrong with this laptop. If you're looking for something that requires you to have a lot of storage you're either gonna need to invest in an external hard drive or consider purchasing something else.

      Overall, this laptop is a great deal. Great if you only need to use online based storage and apps. I chose this over a chromeOS device only because I need windows to run certain applications. 32GB (approximately 11GB with Windows) isn’t enough however, the built in micro SD card reader can help expand it up to 200gb. Granted the read and write speeds aren’t that great, but for documents and pictures it’s fine. Don’t expect a lot. But for basic usage, it’s great. Lightweight, fast, and affordable. I will say that playing games on this is not possible. Maybe low res like Minecraft. But nothing much else. The RAM is only 2GB and the Processor is a N3350 Celeron. At 1.10 GHz per core (Dual core) it will max out quick with a game. It has a TN panel with a matte finish and looks great looking at the display head on. Angles aren’t the greatest. So overall, if you’re looking to get a starter laptop for a loved one, this is great! Just remember, it’s not a heavyweight laptop that you can game and stuff on.
