Lenovo 330S 15.6" Overview

The 15.6" IdeaPad 330s Notebook from Lenovo is a well-rounded system capable of handling everyday tasks such as browsing the internet, streaming TV shows and movies, and video chatting with friends and family. Powered by a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i3-8130U dual-core processor and 6GB of DDR4 RAM, it can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. For storing your documents, movies, and data, it has a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive. Should you need more space, you can connect external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports, as well as its 4-in-1 media card reader, which can also be used to quickly transfer files from mobile devices.

Its 15.6" display, driven by integrated Intel UHD graphics, has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and is built with an IPS panel, delivering crisp, clear HD content. An HDMI port lets you connect an additional monitor for better multitasking or larger viewing. Connect to the internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi and pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology to free up its USB ports for more important devices. Other integrated features include a webcam, speakers, a microphone, and an audio in/out combo jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Lenovo 330S 15.6" Reviews

This is the worst product I have ever bought

By Rob
Rated 1 out of 5

While the truly awful keyboard makes typing infuriating, it is impossible to overstate how incredibly slow this garbage product is. A typical webpage takes minutes to load. Performing any task is sure to take hours (you will also have to type everything several times as the keyboard is aligned nothing like any other keyboard you use). Spectacularly bad computer.

Totally broken ACPI system right down to the firmware. If you like losing clients and seeing DPC lag spikes over 10ms while you're recording, this is the laptop for you!

Pretty good overall. But the speed of the hard disk is a huge minus. I have to buy a new SSD for this although a small capacity SSD isn't expensive.

Awful reliability

Purchased this computer in August 2018, was fine for the most part. Literally the month after the warranty ran out, it began not booting up correctly, saying it was attempting automatic repairs. Now it doesn't even turn on at all. I've tried everything with no luck

WiFi WLAN fails frequently

Reboot does not help and only way to recover is a hard shutdown/reset by pressing and holding pwr button. Seems like serious problem with the WLAN chipset.

Can I run Adobe Premiere Pro CC2019 or Adobe Lightroom Clasic on this particular laptop?
Asked by: Julio
Please note I swapped out the HDD for an SSD. Having said that, Lightroom will run just fine. PremierePro… it depends on many factors. I edit 4K video using 720 ProRes proxies on a fast external USB3 drive which is fine for building skeletons and not getting too crazy with effects or transitions. It can get a little choppy at times scrubbing video (yes, even the proxy files), but if you keep it simple then you should be ok. The video card (chip?) in this laptop isn't supported for hardware acceleration in Adobe apps, so if you're looking for a dedicated laptop for video editing, I would look elsewhere.

question

Is the battery replaceable?
Asked by: Jim K.
It is no more difficult than replacing the HDD, upgrading the RAM or adding an M.2 SSD. This laptop comes with a 30 watt battery and you can find a 58 watt one to swap out with. It's literally taking it out and putting the new one in. Taking the bottom off seems daunting but is also super easy and doable even with little to no tech experience. Just search for "battery replacement for Lenovo 330s" on Youtube and you will find tons of step by step videos on how to do it. Good luck!

Is it a problem to charge this in foreign country?
Asked by: David
I bought a 2nd power supply for it - model GX20K11838. Looks like the one that came with it. Both specify 100-220V as input voltage. With the right (mechanical) travel plug/adapter, you should be able to charge this pretty much anywhere in the world.
