    Excellent value for cost

    I needed a laptop for work, and I spent weeks trying to find an affordable unit with decent specs. This model eventually went on sale below $500, so I decided to take the plunge. It's been almost one month since I made the purchase, and I couldn't be happier with my Lenovo. The i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM is sufficient for everything I've used it for so far (mostly programming and related tasks, I have not tried any gaming yet), and the 128 SSD has the OS booting up incredibly fast. I happily accept the speed-for-space tradeoff made here, and you could always get an external SSD if you require more storage. It's more than enough for my purposes. The build quality is actually pretty nice. It's lightweight, sturdy, and quiet as a mouse. The keys feel a little cheap, but honestly, typing is a breeze and feels fine. I understand that there are some choices made in the keyboard layout which other users are not too fond of, but all seems fine to me. The touchpad is quite responsive, and you have a lot of options at your disposal. I purchased a mouse with this computer, as I normally can't stand using touchpads, but this one is actually very intuitive with a few tweaks made in the settings. The screen feels a bit washed-out, but I don't notice it most of the time. It might be an issue for photo/video editing. The Midtown Charlotte location may still have it on display, so you can check it out in person. One last thing to mention is the battery life, which is superb. It seems to last for hours and hours, and you have multiple options for balancing conservation and performance. It also charges very quickly. In summary, if you are looking for a competent, budget-friendly laptop, I would highly recommend taking this Lenovo for a spin. The specs featured in this model compare with entry-level Surface Books and MacBook Pros that cost twice as much. I do not normally write product reviews online, but I am so impressed with this product that I felt compelled to do so. Happy hunting.

    Excellent bang for the buck

    This is a great lappy for the price. There is nothing quite like it in the price range $450-$500. Purchased for my father, the main pros are the SSD/memory and the CPU combo. 8th gen i5 and 128GB of storage and 8GB RAM. It's sturdily constructed, very thin and light compared to other 15"-ers in its class. Was able to strip the bloatware easily, unlike the other reviewer I let the McAfee uninstall finish after it paused at 50%. The SD reader will be put to use; unfortunate that you have to use a full size SD adapter that will stick out instead of a dedicated micro-SD like you can get w/ the Surface line. Only compromise to speak of is the lack of touch screen and the somewhat low resolution. Not an issue for my dad's setup as he will drive an external larger monitor with this. All in all after much researching, this was the best bang for the buck at its price point and I'm very pleased with how quick and responsive it is. Recommended.

    Great basic solid state computer for the price

    We were looking for a light and thin 15.6-inch basic notebook computer with a solid state drive and Intel i5 processor under $500 and this fit the bill perfectly! Even has a lighted keyboard and a numeric keypad which my wife needed as a teacher to enter data that other higher end computers did not have. It has 3 USB ports and a SD Memory Card Reader and you can easily add extra RAM if you need it. The 128GB solid state drive is sufficient and we can always expand using an inexpensive SD memory card or memory in the cloud so that's really not an issue. Would have been nice to have 1920 x 1080 resolution but with a smaller 15.6 screen the 1366 x 768 resolution is more than adequate for our use. It's not meant to be a gaming computer and if it had a larger solid state hard drive and higher 1080 resolution it would cost a lot more than $449 on sale....which was a bargain for a thin, lightweight, solid state laptop with an Intel i5 processor, lighted keypad and numeric keypad!

    I gave back an HP Pavilion x360 for this

    Posted
    ImaFilthyCasual

    I bought an HP Pavilion 14 inch with an i3 processor, 8 gb of RAM, and 500 gb of hard drive storage. I've had hard drive computers before, but the HP PC was slow in setting up and booting afterwards. Plus there was no backlit keyboard which I figure should be standard even in budget laptops by now. I knew right away there were better options out there. I paid $470 for the HP on sale, so I figured what's another 60 bucks and I upgraded to the Lenovo 330 15 inch. It boots in seconds and has a much better i5 processor, AND a backlit keyboard. I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm only slightly sore about this not being a more compact 14 inch, however this is a very small and light 15 inch. I'll deal with it.

    Perfect for My Needs

    The move to a laptop was a big deal for me, a 67-year-old whose home computer has been a tower/monitor/keyboard workstation since the early 90s. My son had kept trying to convince me of the advantages of not being tied to the desk in our home office, but I just would not be convinced. When the time finally came, he helped me pick out a laptop, and while I'm glad of the freedom it represents, I'm particularly happy with the Lenovo. My requirements are modest: VPN connection to work, run Quicken, do email, my Fantasy league, watch a little Netflix. All boxes checked. And the size and feel of the keyboard are great. I'm just old-fashioned enough to have a Logitech mouse attached. And I find I update Quicken and other programs more frequently, so each session is less arduous. I'm a happy camper!

    I was looking for a budget laptop with a 15-inch screen and an SSD, and this fits the bill perfectly. The screen is 1366x768, which some people consider low resolution but was just what I was looking for. It's a matte screen, which I much prefer to a glossy one. Performance is above-average for a laptop at this price. Very light for a budget 15-inch model. The 128GB SSD is a bit smaller than I needed, but I got a low-profile SD adapter and stuck a microSD card in there semi-permanently, addressing any storage issues. Trackpad is very good, keyboard is fine. The compromises in this machine are in all the right places to fit my needs.

    Great little laptop. Light, fast and comfortable. Pros 1. Price 2. Intel i5 3. 8G RAM 4. Extremely lightweight 5. Body and look 6. Solid state HDD (smooth operation) Cons: 1. Solid state HDD (not easily upgradable in future) 2. 128G memory 3. Slightly limited battery life It doesn’t come with a whole lotta bells and whistle. But Intel core i5 with 8G RAM under $500, isn’t easy to find. Plus Lenovo is a great brand. 3 days of use- extremely happy.

    This was my first major purchase as a young adult. I did a lot of research and talked with professors & professionals to see if Solid State was worth the extra $$. I am the kind of person that does not keep a lot of documents/pictures so the loss of storage was not a problem for me. I moved the pictures and documents I do have to Google Drive and haven't had any issues. Great computer, starts up and powers down quickly, quiet, and runs programs perfectly. Would and will recommend.

    My son, tired of old slow hand me down computers, decided to save his own money to buy a computer. Told him I'd pay for half. Decided on this one because of the Core i5 processor, 8 gb ram, SSD, and low price. Has proven to be a solid purchase for his needs. Light weight. Compact. And most important to him: no glitching when playing his online games. Not a workhorse machine, but for a low priced machine to handle online games like Fortnite, this one's a winner.

    We purchased this laptop for my father-in-law who only wanted to use it for general document creation and printing-as well as some family history and genealogy work. Minimal internet use, but plenty of storage space for his needs. We were looking at a different computer with more features and versatility, a Best Buy Associate helped us talk out our needs and wants, and this machine fit much better. Great buying experience, and product use after about 3 weeks now.

    This is a great laptop for the price. Although on the small side, the inclusion of an SSD makes this a speedy laptop. The only downside (if this matters to you) is that the display is not a 1080p display. As this will be used for work in my case, it doesn't make a difference in how Excel spreadsheets will look. If you're on a budget and don't mind the slightly lower resolution, make sure you give this a consideration.

    Best specs for the price

    An i5 with 8GB Ram for under $500 is an incredible deal. The SSD (while it doesn’t have tons of storage) makes it even speedier. Looks fantastic, slim, and the backlit keyboard is a plus. If you find that your trackpad isn’t working, try Fn+F6 before returning... Lenovo trackpads are finicky and get turned off during updates a lot. Overall, best deal for its price range! The quick charge feature is pretty handy too.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo IdeaPad 330s-15 laptop. You are correct, the HotKey in the F6 position on your computer toggles the touchpad on/off. You can check the health of your computer and keep all BIOS and Driver operating software up to date. This system has Lenovo utilities installed to help maintain the health of the device and keep the operating system software up to date. Type "Lenovo Vantage" in the Cortana Search window (if Lenovo Vantage is not installed on your device, you can download the APP and install it now). Select Lenovo Vantage from the list. In the window that opens, click on "Health and Support". In the expanded menu, select "Hardware Scan" In the window that opens, select "Run Quick Tests". This will scan your entire system for errors. Follow any directions that may pop up. If the problem continues after this scan, now click on "System Update". First select Windows update from the menu. Scan your system to be sure you have the latest version of Windows 10. Once that scan is complete, select "Additional Updates". This will scan your device to be sure there are no new BIOS/Driver updates needed. Follow any instructions that may pop up. If the issue still continues after these updates, we recommend you call Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686 for additional help. lenovo

    This laptop is small, lightweight, and easy to use - love the backlit keyboard and overall placing of keys. The price was right in that laptops never seem to last as long as you would think. First Lenovo purchase as my last HP laptop blew it's motherboard in the second year - and HP wouldn't do anything. There is enough power and options on this new Lenovo to last and so far, I'm pleased with the purchase.

    This was an economical purchase for a laptop, but I didn't want to spend TOO little and wind up with something that wasn't going to do the job. This one is a good workhorse for a college student or anyone managing a small home business, like real estate or photography. The response is fast, and so far (several months), connectivity and reliability are top notch. It's a good everyday laptop.

    I am an electronics novice, having not bought a laptop in about ten years. This laptop is well-equipped and well-priced. It has adequate RAM, a mid-line Intel processor, and a solid state hard drive...all the things that I was told to look for...in an aluminum case! I even discovered that it has a back-lit keyboard, which I was sure that I was not going to find in a laptop in this price range!

    I was a little skeptical getting a Lenovo, as I have only had HPs and a Toshiba in the past. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I love this laptop. It’s extremely fast, like that it has the numerical key pad on side, and screen is a good size. It’s also a lot lighter than my previous laptops. Super happy with this purchase!

    Coming from an Apple guy, just like the title says “best laptop for the bank”. I use this laptop on a daily basis and I have no complaints whatsoever fiven the fact I paid so little. Yes it is not touchscreen, yes it doesn’t fly, I use it for work and I run all apps on Microsoft Suite and quickbooks on it. It takes it like champ. If you are on a budget, get it!

    This laptop was sold at a decent price for the specs, and performance is satisfying. It has a slim profile, keyboard is responsive, and there is minimal bloatware. Battery life is sufficient. The only thing that I would have liked is for the power cord to be longer, but that is very minor compared to all the good things that this laptop has to offer.
