So picture this if you will…I am sat there, minding my own blogging business, tapping away on my laptop. About 90% of my life is on my laptop because it is where all my work is. It was a wonderful gift for my birthday two years ago and has been a godsend when it comes to my work as it has meant I can be on the move with my work. So imagine my gasp of horror (okay scream, followed by floods of tears) when my laptop stopped working. It just wouldn’t boot up anymore – I knew why…I had recently dropped it when I had to saved Alyssa from a rather large wasp and it had knocked something inside and hadn’t been the same since. My ex managed to fix it and reconnect the boot drive but a few weeks later it went again and by then we had split up and no one else was able to fix it. After pulling myself together, I was delighted to be asked by AO if I’d review their Lenovo Ideapad 330S-15IKB 15.6″ Laptop and after my happy dance and using it for two weeks, I am hopping on here to tell you all what I thought…
Apart from the first 5 months of my blogging life where I used my mum’s desktop computer, I have only ever used my beloved former laptop and obviously had everything set up the way I liked it. I was a little nervous to begin again on a whole new laptop but had to give it a go.
The Lenovo Ideapad 330S-15IKB 15.6″ Laptop made everything really easy to set up – Right from the start you get Cortana who asks for your information which, thanks to the fact I used an online storage and settings system, meant I could input my email address and all my settings were then there and ready to go and I was able to access my shared drive on my laptop immediately. Something new for me was that I was also able to permanently sync my phone to my laptop as well which in the two weeks I have been using this laptop has been great for transferring media and work.
- Up to 6 hours battery life
- Full HD screen – for a stunning, clear picture
- 1TB hard drive offers tons of storage space
- Intel® Core™ i3 processor – for work & entertainment
- 4GB of RAM with 16GB Optane™ Memory
That’s the key information – the battery life and the hard drive storage are brilliant for bloggers. Other information you might like to know is that it has an in-built microphone and camera, usb ports, a memory card port which is great for when I’m using my camera and has an aluminium casing which appears really strong and hard-wearing, though obviously I am going to attempt to NOT drop this one.
Overall, I am really pleased with the Lenovo Ideapad. It is lightweight and not too big meaning it’s great for working on the go and when I sit with it on my lap to work around Alyssa. The screen is the perfect size and it is amazing to suddenly have high definition – it’s so clear! I was concerned it wouldn’t be able to handle the amount of work that I do and how much I have open and going on all at once but it has been a total trooper and I have not noticed any slowness or struggles at all. I am really impressed with the sleek design, it’s comfortable to use and easy to carry. This little laptop is my new blogging best friend – thanks AO.
