SP Notebook Reviews 2016 – Lenovo Ideapad 500S

In this review, we take a look at the Lenovo Ideapad 500S, offered by SP for it’s students to consider purchasing for their new academic year at SP.

This laptop actually offers rather decent performance with it’s rather good performing GPU. But it only has a SSHD (A Hard Drive with some cache memory), which means the laptop can turn on quickly but will struggle to load games and apps as fast as laptops with a SSD.

Since external hard drives have become rather cheap and readily available, we recommend getting a laptop equipped with a full SSD instead for the best performance of your laptop.

However, it is rather light for a notebook in its price range, so it is quite enticing to buy this. Nevertheless, you can always look at other laptop models or outside vendors to see if you can find a better laptop suited to your needs at this price range
