Lenovo IdeaPad 330 and 330S are cheap but stylish laptops

 

Starting at a low $250, you can customize these relatively attractive budget laptops... until they're not so cheap anymore.

LENOVO IdeaPad 330S-14IKB 14" Intel® Core™ i7 Laptop - 512 GB SSD, Blue

 

Brought as a present for my daughter. Nice size/weight for the money. Minimum bloatware installed after removing the bundled antivirus software.

Supplied power adaptor a little short on cable length. Internal battery pack may concern some. No user RAM access door.

Good machine, does what it needs to. Great design and layout, nice to type on.

Only lacking backlit keyboard but this model doesn't have it/wasn't available. Display doesn't seem massively sharp.
