It’s back to school time and like every year, companies are starting to update their catalog to make the most out of the season. The Chinese consumer electronics manufacturers, Lenovo, is betting on back to college season with its two new notebooks- Ideapad 530S and Ideapad 330S, each of which come in many different variants and are aimed at different user base.
As the model number suggests, this is the upper model of the two laptops with a full-metal body. Powered by Intel’s latest 8th generation processors, this is primarily aimed at professionals. Available in Copper, Onyx black, Liquid blue and Mineral gray colors, it comes in two variants- 8GB RAM coupled with 512GB SSD and 16GB RAM coupled with 256GB SSD.
One of the key highlights of this laptop is its extended battery life that runs for almost 8 hours on a single charge and also has a Rapid Charge feature that promises 2 hours of battery in 15 minutes of charging. You would also get 2GB of Nvidia GeForce graphics or Intel UHD Graphics 620 depending on the model you choose. Having a 14-inch display with FHD or WHQD resolution, the laptop also has Harman speakers inside for entertainment seekers. Depending on the variant you pick, the price can range anywhere between INR 74,999 to INR 84,999.
Primarily aimed at college students, this affordable laptop promises to bring experience to budget users. Having a metallic-body lit, backlit keyboard and up to 7 hours of battery life with Rapid Charge, Ideapad 3305 comes in 4 variants and depending on the model you choose, you can get anywhere between 4GB RAM and no graphics to 8GB RAM and Intel/AMD graphics. All the variants have a 1TB HDD and are powered by Intel’s 8th gen CPU. Weighing 1.67Kg, the company claims these laptops to be around 24% lighter than comparable traditional clamshell notebooks. The price tag for the laptop varies from 35,399 to INR 53,999.
As much as the company claims the laptops to be value-for-money, you can extract additional value if you purchase any of them during the current back to college sale. The company is giving away free backpacks with 5305 model while you can also avail 2-year additional warranty, and 1-year Premium care at a fraction of their original cost.
