Design and Build Quality
Lenovo has good amount of experience when it comes to designing laptops and this is reflected in IdeaPad 320E too. The design of this laptop is aesthetically pleasing with clean lines clearly built keeping is business executives in mind.
As such the Ideapad 320E offers fine looks and scores good amount of points in the looks department. The metallic design feels and looks premium too.
However, the weight is around 2.2kg which we felt is high considering there isn’t any DVD drive in it.
Lenovo Ideadpad 320E comes with a 15.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. The colors on this display are also vivid and offers a good depth too.
The text on this screen looks good too with nice color reproduction.
Processor and Performance
Along with design the processor is also a powerful one housing a Core i5-7200U processor clocked at 2.5 GHz.
There is a 4GB DDR4 RAM onboard, which along with the 7th generation processor can help get through any application you throw at it. However, still we would suggest adding another 4GB DDR4 RAM to double the performance.
The standard 1TB HDD which I think is large enough to store all the data you need, be it movies, games or your favorite music.
If your budget allows then we would definitely recommend adding an SSD which will help increase the performance.
There is also a 2GB Nvidia 920MX graphic card which can satisfy your gaming desires however only at medium frame rates.
Both HDMI and VGA connection options are there along with Wifi support.
It also houses two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port with a HDMI port and an Ethernet port.
Battery Life and Others
The Battery life is a department where it doesn’t excel. The company has rated the battery life for 4 hours which could have been better and could have been around 5-6 hours but will also depend on your usage.
The Lenovo Ideapad 320E is preloaded with the Windows 10 OS. You have the basic apps preinstalled so that you can just run it out of the box.
There is 1 year warranty on this laptop and there is a good network of service centers in case you need any updates on this laptop.
- 7th Gen Core i5 Processor
- Nvidia 920MX graphic card
- Low battery Life of 4 hours
Overall Lenovo Ideapad 320E is the best laptop under Rs. 40,000 with 2GB dedicated graphics card and Core i5 processor. There are some features which could have been included in this price range such as backlit keyboard, high capacity battery.
However, considering the combination of features including core i5 7th generation processor, 4GB RAM, Nvidia 920mx graphics we think it still has an edge over it’s competitors in this price segment.
