Getting Back to Work with the Lenovo IdeaPad

Are you looking for a new lightweight portable laptop that is easy to set up, easy to use, but robust enough to stand up to blogging, multi-media or studying?  The Lenovo IdeaPad is just what you need.

I've had an up and down couple of months and work has taken a bit of a backseat recently, as you may have noticed.  I've been working behind the scenes at other aspects of the business, whilst also taking some time out for other reasons.  But I am back to more regular hours now and back to building and growing the business, all with my new companion the Lenovo IdeaPad 330S.

Intel UK sent us the new Lenovo IdeaPad 330S laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor to review a few weeks ago but, with one thing and another, it has sat in its box until very recently.  On the rare occasions I had been online recently, I struggled on with my old laptop.  But I have so been missing out!

Despite earning my living online, conquering blogging, social media and even doing the odd bit of coding here and there, I am rather a technophobe.  I want technology that plugs in, turns on and does all the difficult stuff for me.

Luckily, Lenovo know that there are plenty of us out here, so the IdeaPad does just that.  Turn it on and it boots up ultra fast, due to the Intel Core i5 processor, and can cope with the multitude of windows I need open when scheduling lots of social media content for example.

The IdeaPad launches all applications speedily, and the integral Intel® Optane Memory means it opens even the largest media files instantly.  Optane is a new type of memory from Intel beyond the processors you know them best for, which offers fantastic user benefits such as the ability to open lots of applications at the same time without the screen freezing, switching between lots of 4K files without delay, and fast file search from the desktop.

I'm quite good at single tasking while I work but there are times I need lots of windows open, for example for scheduling out a week or month's content in advance or for research when writing.  This is when the combination of Optane™ Memory and Intel’s 8th Gen processor comes into its own, letting me switch between applications and windows quickly without any delays or stalling on screen.  This is perfect for getting tasks down quickly and efficiently, freeing up time for what actually matters (clue: it's not work!)

As well as being super functional and a real workhorse, the Lenovo IdeaPad has sleek, modern looks.  It has shiny aluminium styling and a 180-degree fold flat screen making it cool enough for trendy students and millennials.  The full HD resolution and excellent speakers mean it is perfect for YouTube, gaming, streaming and the all-important Netflix too.

The device boasts 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB Type-C port, an HDMI point and a a 4-in-1 media card reader too.  It charges so quickly too, just 15 minutes of charging provides a powerful 2 hours of battery time, perfect if you forgot to put it on charge and have to rush out the door for a lecture - or to find a coffee shop to work in in my case!

Perfect for bloggers, students, working on the go (it weighs less than 2kg), and general use, the Lenovo IdeaPad 330S 15.6 Inch i5 Laptop is an excellent hyper-responsive PC which is fast and easy to use.  The perfect Intel-powered, responsive device without breaking the bank.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 330S 15.6 Inch i5 Laptop is powered by an Intel i5 Quad Core Processor with an Intel® Optane™ Memory inside.  It is available from Argos, John Lewis and Very priced from £529.99.
