Lenovo is known as one of the popular choice budget laptop manufacturers all around the world. The company introduced the Lenovo Ideapad L340 with a GTX 1650 graphics which makes it a great gaming system. The laptop which is among the Ideapad series from Lenovo falls in the mid-range class. It adds a bit of a professional look combined with a sporty design preferred by gamers. The laptop is solidly built and comes with a 15.6inch display screen.
This gaming system is very good and we will look at the major features that make it worth buying.
This Lenovo Ideapad laptop is built with an IPS panel with 250nits. The colour is very sharp and accurate. You will have a great view of the screen at any angle. The laptop also has very slim side bezels that allow you a watch your movies in a more wider range. The display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 X 1080p.
The audio speakers on this laptop are not loud but you will be able to have clear audio only when in an enclosed room. The system uses the Dolby Audio software to enhance your listening experience.
The Lenovo Ideapad L340 comes with a 1TB SATA hard drive which is large enough to keep all your large documents, video and audio files. You can also install enough apps on the laptop and it would not slow down your system.
The Ideapad L340 is powered with an Intel Core i5-9300H, an NVIDIA GTX 1650 (4GB), and uses 8GB of RAM. This processor allows you to perform multiple tasks on the system at the same time without causing the PC to lag.
The processor is also very powerful to handle heavy graphics games but may not be able to withstand any high settings. It would be best to fix games as medium settings to enjoy a smooth play.
The battery life is relatively average as it can last for about 5 hours and 15 minutes. This time only applies when doing regular computing activities like surfing the web or working on office packages. If you were to play games on this device, the battery life will drop down considerably.
When you look at the exterior of the laptop, you will find a variety of ports. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, two USB Type-A 3.1 ports, an HDMI port and a USB Type C port. The laptop also has a Kensington lock on its right side but does not have an SD card slot.
Keyboard and Touchpad
The keyboard is a full-sized keyboard like the one you find on a desktop computer. The keyboard is arranged in a chiclet-style and has a blue backlight.
The Touchpad a bit small considering the size of the laptop. It might be a bit difficult trying to get the cursor to focus on a particular direction and it would be best to get an external mouse for this device.
