The Reasons Why We Love Lenovo IdeaPad 1

The Lenovo IdeaPad 1 is an entry-level laptop with a straightforward design that should appeal to most users. Except for the Ice Blue hue, there’s nothing particularly eye-catching about it. Yet, the laptop has a particular attraction of simplicity that we appreciate. The plastic chassis is solid, and it should be able to withstand being hauled around to lectures and study rooms daily.

Some may consider the 14-inch screen’s maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 (HD) flaw in this laptop. Still, it all depends on your expectations and demands. Although neither the contrast nor the brightness is above average for the category, it is suitable for basic tasks such as working with documents and spreadsheets.

Lenovo, the company behind the ThinkPad business computers and its incredibly ergonomic keyboards, understands the importance of a good typing experience. However, the keys are well-spaced, the label font is legible, and the keyboard deck flexes very little when you type aggressively.

One of the features of the IdeaPad 1 is the full HD display, which helps it stand out among the sea of lower-quality screens found on laptops at lower price points. The screen has a diagonal measurement of 14 inches, slightly larger than the 13.3 inches found on most ultraportable laptops. Because of the 1,920-by-1,080-pixel native resolution, colours are well-defined, and the text is sharp. On a 14-inch screen, many inexpensive laptops are limited to HD resolution, which usually translates to the pixel size of 1,366 by 768. This can make text look fuzzy.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 1 features a full HD display, a comfortable keyboard, and a sturdy design. This 14-inch notebook is also lightweight and equipped with a fast SSD for quick app loading. You may lament the lack of a current USB-C connector or two, as well as the flat screen lighting. Still, this laptop is one of the better choices among laptops for those on the tightest budgets.

The keyboard on this IdeaPad 1 is possibly its best feature. It has a sharp and tactile feel to it, with decent travel for such a low-cost laptop, as well as an excellent clicky sound that feels just right and isn’t too loud. This is obviously vital for students who need to take notes in class and study at the library, and IdeaPad 1 should be ideal for this.

The touchpad should have been a little bigger, but that’s expected for a laptop in this price range, and it’s adequate. The mouse clicks have a cheap feel, but it works well and appears to be stable overall.
