    My ideapad thoughts

    I'd say it's a mid-range laptop that balances performance, display quality, and portability. It has an Intel Core i3-1215U processor, 8GB memory, and a 256GB SSD. They make it easy to handle everyday tasks like browsing the web, doing office work, and using light multimedia. Users have praised its speed and operational efficiency. The laptop features a 15.6-inch Full HD touch display². However, others wish it had a sharper and brighter resolution. I enjoy the large design. It's perfect for me, but others say the computer is large. The battery life is decent enough for me, however, I wish it lasted longer. Overall, it is a solid choice between performance and affordability. It suits students and professionals who need a reliable device for everyday tasks. However, those seeking a high-quality display may want to try other options.

    I am happy because I am not very tech savvy, but this laptop has been pretty easy to learn how to operate plus when I didn’t need any help geek squad was right there to do their job. I love the fact that it’s touchscreen makes things so much easier.

    I really wanted to like this laptop, since it had almost all the things i needed. I basically use mine for watching netflix. Screen resloution and volume are important to me. The first was perfect however the latter was ok, not the best. But i could barely finish a movie or show before it needed charging. The battery life in not even close to 4 hrs. I mean whats the point of calling it a laptop at that point. Its basically a desk stop that needs to be plugged in all the time. Sadly i returned it since i need better battery life then what it was offering. Other than that the specs are pretty accurate and it has a sleek look which isnt too bad.

      Hi, Fifi. We are sorry to hear that your IdeaPad 1 fell short of your expectations, leading to you returning it. For some insight regarding your issue with battery life – as you may know there are lots of variables that contribute to battery life. Thankfully, many of those variables can be adjusted. By default, the system will tend to give more speed when needed, which can sacrifice battery life. If you want to squeeze out more battery life, we recommend users utilize the Lenovo Vantage application that is preinstalled to adjust settings related to power and battery performance. Users can also take advantage of the keyboard shortcut, Fn + Q to toggle thermal modes and easily switch between prioritizing battery life or power, or even the best of both words. Also, there are power management options built into Windows itself that can be managed in system settings. We appreciate you sharing your experience so that we may use it to continue to better our products and services for yourself and others. Lenovo

    Been a Lenovo user for a while...bought my 1st model which was a YOGA 14" which unfortunately is coming up EOL October 2025. (w10 PRO) I'm a heavy user of Lenovo's enterprise line of PCs, mainly MINI & SFF models which are built like a tank. Just purchased this for my wife to use for her work, she's an RN and will use it for general tasks including continuing education and work related workloads. Was on sale for a real good price so we decided not to wait and purchased it. Checks out all the boxes except for one major IMHO flaw. The RAM is soldered on, so we are stuck with 8GB. I have multiple PCs including gaming rigs and the minimum specs for RAM that I use is 16GB. Even my YOGA has expendable memory...not dual channel but better than being stuck on 8GB. C'mon Lenovo...10GB or 12GB would've been better; don't be like Apple, LOL! It may or may not be adequate for my wife's needs, we shall see. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could. Also hopefully the camera will be durable because the one on my YOGA stopped working right after the warranty ran out. Fingers crossed it'll be a good machine.

    Great deal on Win11 laptop with these specs

    I don't write reviews, I decided to on this one. I own many computers, pretty much know what I'm doing. Usually reluctant for new stuff but decided to dive into the windows 11 thing with this. Don't know where you will find a better deal on a laptop for general use than this. Do not get a celeron anything. I3 is a good chip. This starts up fast, has a good display for what most will use it for. I did add another 8g stick because it was less than $20. Was reluctant to get a 15.6, been using 13.3... but realized I like it, not too big , very lightweight. So, if there are negatives for certain uses, it is lightweight... not aluminum case. and light battery. In my use of Access and Excel, youtube videos, etc. it will need to be charged, I don't know 5 or so hours of "use". But charges fast. An hour maybe. You may notice reviews mentioning it coming in "S" mode. I think most windows 11 computers are now. You will probably want to search how to remove that. Also use Windows Defender, not 3rd party that comes installed.

    So far, so good! I have been a HP fan for years, but just needed a simple replacement for work. I don't need all the gaming capabilities. Wish we could find an affordable , everyday lap top with a DVD drive, but that does not seem to exist. The Lenova Ideapad boots up quickly and I am slowly adding apps. One thing I noticed was that Edge is the default server and to add Google, it would require turning off the "S" mode. Since I'm not entirely sure what the "S" mode is, I have not gone any further because once you turn off the "S" mode, you can't turn it back on?

      Hi, TCshopper. Thank you for choosing Lenovo! Should you still need help and information -- Windows 11 Home in s-mode is a more secure, lighter version of the Windows 11 Operating System that only allows the downloading of applications from the Microsoft Store. If you try to launch or install and run an app, executable or .exe file, the system prevents it. Should you desire to switch to Windows 11 Home, yes, it is a one-way street as it generally cannot be switched back. Here is a link to a Microsoft webpage that shares how to do so: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-and-windows-11-in-s-mode-faq-851057d6-1ee9-b9e5-c30b-93baebeebc85 Other than that, we are glad to hear that things are going good with your IdeaPad so far, and we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

    This system is very lightweight, I notice it has a delay in the motion and movement, but other than that it's a pretty decent computer for the cost.

    The Lenovo Ideapad 1i 15.6" FHD Touchscreen Laptop offers solid performance for everyday tasks with its Intel Core i3-1215U processor and 8GB of RAM. The Full HD touchscreen enhances usability, although its Intel UHD Graphics may limit intensive graphical tasks. The 256GB SSD provides ample storage, and the Cloud Gray design is sleek and modern. Overall, it's a good choice for users needing a reliable, budget-friendly laptop for work or school.

    Its a very nice laptop for the money i am disappointed that it was a Microsoft focused laptop had i known that i probably would've went with a google laptop only because everything i use and have is all Google based my main email and everything is all Google and i dont use anything Microsoft like ever but i worked it out with the help of a friend and now it runs Google so im good on that front but overall its a very good laptop the associate who rang me up was very knowledgeable was also friendly

    FOUND IT AT LENOVO AT A BETTER PRICE, it was few days late for the price match :( Very good and economic laptop. Very functional, I like the idea that is touchscreen. Slick and not heavy at all, great for portability. The keyboard is comfortable. The only down side is that since the screen is too big the touchscreen makes the the screen not very stable, it doesn't allow to use it as a notebook :(.
