Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Drivers – With the IdeaPad 330S, Lenovo offers a lot of hardware options at low prices. Prices range from 350 euros ($407) to 1000 euros ($1163), depending on the model. The available processors range from the simple Intel Pentium 4415U to the powerful Core i7-8550U. In addition to the different storage and RAM configurations, shoppers can also choose from multiple graphics solutions.
Our review device comes with the Intel Core i5-8250 CPU, the integrated GPU UHD Graphics 620, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. The hard drive accelerates with the help of a 16 GB Optane module, so it should offer faster read and write speeds. Our revision configuration costs 600 euros ($698).
Because the competition also offers powerful laptops in this price range, we compared the Lenovo laptop with a number of similar priced devices. Competing devices include: The Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-509A, the Asus 15 VivoBook and the MSI PL62. A comparison with Lenovo’s ThinkPad E580 of similar price may also be interesting for prospective buyers.
The case of the IdeaPad 330S is made of polished aluminium. That’s why it looks very premium. It is also very stiff and can be transported with one hand without crunching. The top part of the screen cover is also made of aluminium. The lid of the screen is quite easy to bend or twist due to the fine bevels. However, the lid does not twist or bend when it is simply opened or closed.
The bottom cover of the IdeaPad 330S can be removed once all the screws on the bottom are undone. Once the bottom cover is removed, users can clean the internal parts or perform a slight maintenance job.
The dimensions of the 330S are somewhat smaller than those of other 15-inch laptops. To achieve a smaller design, Lenovo reduced the bezels and eliminated multiple ports. With a weight of approximately 1.8 kilograms, the 330S occupies a place in the midst of our comparison group. The 330S is good enough for mobile use.
When the notebook sits on a table, it is not possible to open the screen cover with one hand, because the chassis does not provide sufficient counterweight for the rigid screen hinges.
With the IdeaPad 330S, Lenovo has reduced port selections to a minimum (USB, HDMI and audio Connector). That said, the laptop has a USB port type C and the SD card reader supports the following formats: SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC.
The SD card reader of the IdeaPad 330S has support for the following formats: SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC. With our reference-grade SD card (Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II), Lenovo’s laptop reaches lower reading and writing speeds. This is why it takes the last place in our table.
Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Drivers – Users of the IdeaPad 330S must dispense with an Ethernet port. However, the Lenovo laptop comes with an integrated Wi-Fi module that supports the fast wireless AC standard and works on the 5 GHz spectral band. Because the 330S comes with a very simple antenna, it cannot reach the same transfer rates That the VivoBook 15, but at 300 MB/s, is still pretty fast when it comes to Wi-Fi.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 330S box only contains a 45 watt power adapter. Multiple portable bags and storage devices can be purchased through the Lenovo website.
Lenovo offers patented docking stations and a Travel Hub for the C-type USB port. The Travel Hub costs 100 euros ($116) and extends the selection of ports with a USB port type A, as well as an Ethernet port, a VGA output and an HDMI port.
The bottom cover of the IdeaPad 330S can be removed once all the screws on the bottom of the device have been untied. After removing the lower cover, you will have access to the bowels of the device. This means you will be able to clean the fan, replace the hard drive or change the battery. A black plate covers the entire base plate, which is fastened by four screws. Once you remove this board, you will be able to access the Optane unit and RAM. Our review device has 8 GB of RAM, 4 of which are replaceable.
The IdeaPad 330S has a keyboard with relatively large keys, each of which has a clear point of action. The keyboard is suitable for quick typing. Only the function keys are problematic, because they are quite small. In addition to the narrow numeric keypad, there is also a very small enter key.
