Lenovo IdeaPad 320 is a budget laptop available at a cheap price. On its design and build it’s completely made up of plastic and weighs in at around 2.2 kgs which is hefty but at the same time it adds to the premiumness of the laptop. Even though it’s made up of plastic, build quality feels solid and has no creaking or squeaking issues.
On the left side it’s pretty busy with the power adapter, charging slot, indicator RJ45 port, HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, headphone jack, SD card slot and power status indicator. On the right side is the DVD Drive and a Kensington slot.
This particular model comes with Intel Core i5 7 generation 4 gigabytes of RAM and dedicated 2 gigabytes of DDR5, NVIDIA GForce 920 MX GPU coupled with intel’s HD graphics 620. Real-time experience when playing games like NFS Run is occasional choppiness and the frame drops but the gameplay is pretty smooth and overall experience is far better.
Editing videos is also pretty smooth and it can render a nine-minute full HD clip in about 35 minutes or so. Heat vents are placed behind the keyboard below the monitor so while playing high-end games you’ll notice a little bit of heating around the keyboard area but at the same time this isn’t an issue in the normal day-to-day usage. All in all performance ratio is good performance and satisfactory. Lenovo IdeaPad 320 is a decent machine for gaming and video editing available at a very affordable price.
For the battery life while gaming it should last you anywhere between 1.5 to 2 hours. On the other hand if you are watching movies,playing songs or editing documents then it should give you a battery backup anywhere between 2.5 to 3 hours.
It has a complete keyboard with number pad. Keys are wide and they have good travel feedback. The touch pad is pretty smooth and responsive and it supports multi-touch as well and the clicks are pretty accessible. Both keyboard and touchpad have been implemented very well on a Lenovo IdeaPad 320.
Display quality colors is good and can get very bright. Another advantage is its anti glare this time. Even if you have a light source opposite to display the content could be easily viewed. Its viewing angles or a side visibility is not that good. If you slightly tilt the display or move the laptop the content is not viewable.
Speakers are placed at the bottom side. Even the quality is not up to the mark, clarity is decently good. For better audio experience you may have to purchase some external speakers.
