With a world at its peak acceleration in the advancements in technology, Lenovo has recently released its Premium Laptop Lenovo IdeaPad 500 with fully advanced features that makes one jaw drop at it. It comes in the medium to high budget although the features in the laptop actually belong to the high end of specifications. This makes it one of the affordable and best laptops available in the market.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 500 features powerful specifications that will help one do anything with that from writing stories on word to creating spreadsheets, from 3D designing to gaming, from coding to a lot more. The laptop sports a matte finish that is resistant to minor accidents that relatively affect the physical aspects of the laptop. The laptop has 15.6 inch LED display designed for enhanced user experience.
Features of Lenovo IdeaPad 500:
The laptop has an 8GB RAM with a total default storage of 1 TB in it. With the powerful quad core 2.4 GHZ AMD processor on its motherboard, the laptop becomes invincible in terms of its performance. The laptop weighs around 5 lbs and has a 15.6 inch LED display. Its lightweight even after the addition of more specifications is the purest advantages that this laptop comes with. It sports the latest version of operating system from Microsoft- Windows 10. With other features like Wi-Fi, portability, etc the laptop is a good option for beginners as well as professionals.
Comparison of Lenovo IdeaPad 500 with competitors:
The Lenovo IdeaPad 500 laptop has its direct competition with the HP pavilion 15 series. Although both are of almost same standards, quality and price range, the Lenovo Premium High Performance laptop has a clear edge over the HP Pavilion 15 series laptops in terms of structural quality and performance. The HP laptops are ceramic made and smoothly finished and thus more prone to damage even during a little crash.
On contrary to this, the Lenovo laptops, as described already, have a matte finish and thus are resistant to crash to some level. Also, in comparison with other brands, the Lenovo Premium High Performance 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop actually loses out on the lack of a few features that includes the touchscreen display, more battery life, backlit keyboard, etc.
Pros of buying the Lenovo IdeaPad 500 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop:
The Laptop comes with a powerful 8 GB DDR3 type RAM. That means that you can use it even for high resolution and high graphic games and graphic designs. What is even more interesting is that the RAM can be upgraded till 16 GB. But I don’t think that is needed, because for gaming itself, an 8 GB RAM is more often sufficient enough to play without graphical lags.
The structural design of the laptop is a major advantage. The 2016 Newest Lenovo Premium High Performance 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop has a matte finish. That means that the chances of it getting damaged is really low when compared to other laptops with ceramic finish.
With the AMD A10 processor and with Radeon graphic card, the laptop works just fine at high speed even during multitasking.
The weight of the laptop, given all its specifications, is actually incredible. With all these the laptop weighs just about 5 lbs.
The Lenovo Premium High Performance 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop comes with windows 10 pre installed. Thus it is fully optimized with the operating system and is thus available to have as many softwares and applications as there are available for Windows 10.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 500 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop has an AMD processor. This is an incredibly powerful high performance processor which can help you do multitasking very efficiently. You can do almost anything efficiently with the AMD 10 processor that is built in the laptop. You can code using the laptop, play high graphics games, make 3D designs and analysis that were only a dream for the previous technology and a lot more activities very efficiently with the AMD 10 processor on your laptop.
Cons of Buying the Lenovo IdeaPad 500 Laptop:
Battery life is not at all impressive. For the specification and pricing, the battery lasts just about 6 hours on full charge and the battery quality deteriorates on aging. Thus it makes the laptop look like a man who has a well-built physique in a wrestling ring but with no energy.
With technology making its advancements in every possible way it could, the laptop still has a keyboard that is not backlit. That decreases its capability of being used in low or no light conditions. Laptops without backlit keyboards are so yesteryear ones.
It has no touchscreen and thus the input method is the same conventional and old keyboard mouse configuration. Though it is not a disadvantage as such, when you go into a competition with other brands you lose out on this. Other brands provide touchscreens on laptops for more or less the same price range and thus the lack of touch screen automatically becomes a disadvantage.
Why you should buy Lenovo IdeaPad 500:
Despite all its disadvantages, for the price that it is offered for, it is simply an amazing piece of technology that one never wants to miss. If you are a gamer or a 3D designer, or a coder or a surfer with a nominal budget for buying a laptop with good specifications, this is a must go for you. Besides all its disadvantages, which are majorly based on luxury grounds, the laptop is of great performance in the conventional way.
Verdict on Lenovo IdeaPad 500:
The 2016 Newest Lenovo Premium High Performance 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop is the best buy option among the various options available in the budget laptops category. It is simply, without doubt and second thought, one of the best laptops with best specifications available on the market for this price range.
