First of all, the Lenovo IdeaPad S300 is not a true ultrabook, although it has the look and slimness of one. Instead of using a fast SSD, the IdeaPad S300 uses a bulkier and slower 500GB hard drive. Nevertheless, users will still be able fool the uninformed into thinking that the S300 is an ultrabook, with its metallic paint and the MacBook-esque keyboard.
There are no gaps found on the laptop that can spoil the show and it has an excellent quality build overall. For only £280, the Lenovo IdeaPad S300 surely offers something interesting.
The 1.5HGHz Pentium 987 ULV dual-core processor is another factor that separates the S300 from ultrabooks. While adequate for typical computing tasks, it is far less powerful than processors used on netbooks. Despite its budget status, the Lenovo IdeaPad S300 offers a great array of connectivity options including HDMI out port, three USB ports, WiFi, Bluetooth and legacy VGA out port.
