If you have already been searching for the perfect 17.3 inch laptop model you probably already realize it can be difficult to find one that is both affordable and well powered as the extra material needed to design a large sized laptop can quickly add to the total price of the unit. The recently released Lenovo Ideapad 300 -17ISK 80QH008TUK has tried to bridge this gap by not driving the price tag up too much while still having some decent hardware under the hood. Below we will take a closer look at this particular model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 17.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10
The large 17.3 inch display on the Lenovo Ideapad 300 -17ISK 80QH008TUK is going to be its primary benefit as it offers consumers much more screen real estate then you are going to find in a typical laptop model that has only a 15.6 inch display or smaller. For those who are making the jump from a larger desktop or just need the extra screen space for gaming, movies or just general day to day tasks are going to love this large display.
This model may not compete with the large 17.3 inch gaming laptops when it comes to performance but for big laptop in this price range it actually comes well powered. It features the Intel Core i5 processor which is Intel’s second step down when it comes to processor models and combines affordability and performance quite nicely. Along with the well powered processor it has 8 GB of memory giving it plenty to run resource demanding applications or handle multi-tasking without slowing down to a crawl.
You won’t be scrambling for storage space on this model either as it comes with a large 1 TB drive. For those that are not familiar with the what a Terabyte (TB) is it equals 1000 GB so most likely a large upgrade from your older laptop device that you may be upgrading from.
With much of the world trying to get smaller and more mobile the Lenovo Ideapad 300 -17ISK 80QH008TUK goes the complete other direction mostly due to its large display and the extra material that is required to support it. The total weight of the device comes in at a heavy 3 Kg and don’t expect long lasting battery life if on the go either as it will only provide up to 4 hours on a single charge in ideal conditions.
The Lenovo Ideapad 300 -17ISK 80QH008TUK has everything somebody who needs a large displayed laptop with sufficient performance and not an outrageous price could want but don’t expect a device that will be ideal for on the go use. It is better suited for users who don’t plan on taking it on the go often and use it for more around the house or office work.
