  • Full HD display

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 is the flagship Ideapad gaming laptop offering excellent internal hardware specs at a very enticing price point.

Design and Build Quality

We have said it before and will continue to say that Lenovo makes some of the best looking laptops currently in the country.

No matter what the budget, be it entry-level or high-end performance segment laptops, Lenovo has managed to pull off an ace when it comes to the design.

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 has a simple design with a metallic finish on the keyboard deck and the chassis. The screen flex is minimal and won’t be a problem in day-to-day usage.

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 has an island-style keyboard with a separate number pad for those who are used to the full-sized desktop keyboards. The keys are large, spacious and offer great typing experience.

The special painting on this laptop makes it less susceptible to scratches and colour fading over time.

The specially designed hinge mechanism allows this laptop to be opened all the way p to 180 degrees.

Display

The Lenovo Ideapad L340 features a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel TN display. The visuals are adequately colourful and rich in details.

The anti-glare coating on the screen helps it to prevent reflections from the display. This greatly enhances the viewability and reduces stress on your eyes.

The bezels around the display are thicker and is an eyesore to the rest of the elegantly crafted build.

Processor and Performance

Performance is another area where this budget laptop excels. The Lenovo Ideapad L340 is powered by the newer 9th Generation Intel Core i5 – 9300H processor clocked at 2.4GHz which can turbo boost up to 4.1GHz.

With Turbo Boost technology-enabled, the processor will run at minimal power when idle and when something resource-intensive is launched, the cores will run at the higher clock speed to ensure smooth performance.

This processor is capable of running almost all the apps available at present with no hiccups.

With the 8GB onboard DDR4 RAM, you can easily perform computing tasks much faster than an older generation laptop.

Accompanying the processor is a dedicated4GB DDR5 Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card.

This makes the laptop capable of computing tasks such as simulation and video rendering without breaking a sweat. You can play almost all popular games with medium to high settings effortlessly.

Another USP of this device is that it ships with a large capacity 1TB for offline storage purposes. The main downside of this is that HDD’s are slower than SSD’s, both in terms of boosting speeds and app loading times.

Miscellaneous

This laptop doesn’t skimp on port distribution either. This Ideapad laptop from Lenovo comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports, a USB C port and the regular HDMI and card reader slots.

The dual speakers on this laptop are certified by Dolby and give out a loud sound output.

Verdict

  • Band & Olufson audio
  • Powerful processor and GPU

The Pavilion series has been a runaway hit for HP with its great specs at reasonable price segments.

The new Pavilion 15 is lurking in the premium laptop segment with some of the best in class internals and loaded with features that will attract customers for sure.

Build Quality and Design

The new HP Pavilion follows the design principles set by previous pavilion laptops priced under Rs.50,000.

But the one thing that sets this device apart from the rest is the all-new black and green accent that the company has now chosen over the popular red and black option.

The already good build quality of the previous generation pavilion notebooks now has elevated into a whole new level that isn’t just good but great.

The matte finish on the chassis feel-good to touch and the overall colour scheme looks pretty cool.

The hinge mechanism of this laptop is one of the robust factors and works pretty well even at times with a single hand.
