Complete work assignments, stream shows and check out your favourite web pages with the Lenovo IdeaPad. Designed with an integrated fingerprint sensor for quick and safe access, an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, a 14” Full HD display and a battery that will last up to 9 hours, this device weighs only 1.5kg and provides portability, along with good looks.

AMD Ryzen 5
With an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, you’ll easily handle day-to-day tasks like word processing, image editing, web browsing and some casual gaming.

What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.

A solid performer
Featuring 8GB of RAM, this computer has enough power for casual tasks like web browsing and word processing as well as more demanding jobs like complex spread sheets and image manipulation. You’ll be able to run a healthy number of windows at once without any obvious lag or slowdown.

Solid State Drive
Solid State Drives (SSD) give you the capacity to store your documents and media, while ensuring quicker and reliable access to your files and programs. SSDs are far faster than regular hard drives and ingeniously, they don’t use moving parts to work, which makes them far more dependable and also quieter.

AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics
AMD’s Radeon Vega 8 graphics processing unit (GPU) will enable you to enjoy a number of classic older games, along with some casual (web-based) gaming. You may be able to run more modern titles with reduced effects and frame rates.

Great entertainment
Thanks to its 14”, Full HD screen, viewing your high-resolution photos, films and videos will be a pleasure. This device has been designed to convey immersive images and thanks to stereo speakers featuring Dolby Audio technology, will makes for a great casual gaming and multimedia experience.

Connecting your other devices
The USB ports allow for fast data transfer, while the HDMI port enables the option for large screen presentations. The SD card slot offers a convenient way to upload your photos and videos. Bluetooth can help to send data wirelessly between devices.


We can help you get set up
Our specialist in-store Partners can help you to get set up on your new device right away. We can help with anything from transferring personal data from your old device to setting up any essential features.

This is the price since long time ago, I nearly posted this about 3 days ago. Hot for the specs and price!
I'm thinking to buy this but posted here by hoping some expert may find something better than this around £500 bracket!
Thank you in advance.
Sister asked me what to buy, I bought the 530s i5, she bought this . Class laptop for price . Will last years , turns on in about 3 seconds. Only difference was intel i5 and amd ryzon. I paid £599 she paid £479

Thank you for the hedup
Wait for the new gen Ryzen in a month or two. They're much faster and power efficient.They even beat Intel.
The specs build quality and finish, oh and the screen I could well pull the pin on this one. Been looking for ways to bring cost down further though. Any ideas peeps? Cashback, using their credit card .....
So tempting
Anyone know a similar laptop that's sub £400 but has similar build quality and specs?

This was sort of similar, but the deal ended, perhaps worth to keep an eye on it once in a while. The price for this lenovo is really good for the specs.

And how much will cost? It will be faster, but probably not much faster to justify the price.Also, do we know how long will take to have the new gen Ryzen in these?
Well I have taken the plunge and just purchased one for the wife. Its got to be better than the 10 year old i3 that struggles to open web pages.
Bought one. Many thanks OP.

***HOT***

You did the right thing, this should be hotter than it is. Probably one of the best value laptops for the specs posted here. To give you an idea, the silver version of this was over 1000 hot:

I think so too, although that got heat for the further reduction....man i wish lenovo would do the same price so I could get 10% new customer promotion!

The silver version posted before directly from Lenovo reached over 1000 hot. There are lots of comments there, so you may find answers there. With regards to vouchers, cashback and so on, I was looking for this too, but sadly not much luck. By the time a voucher will become available, this may go up in price (£600 Now on Lenovo site) or will be OOS. I think the best you can do is to get it via PayPal 4 months free interest credit. I'm going to JL on Monday to see it, and if it looks good, I will get it.

me too. By the time they will do that the price will go up probably. I really believe this is very good value, but I want to see it in shop first. I nearly posted this deal, can't see anything better value and better built for this specs.

Is there any difference of speed between the two laptops that you have noticed.

No, but neither of us use it for intense programs , just the usual, Internet, word , excel etc. Music and videos .
Would this run the latest COD modern warfare?

Probably not very well.
Guess I would need a proper gaming PC with a hefty price packet for that?
Anybody know if this will run the latest photo editing software like Luminar 4 etc?
Could the laptop be upgraded like adding more ram and a ssd easily?
27crz_72crz14/01/2020 17:16
