Lenovo IdeaPad 530S is a premium thin-and-light laptop for less

 

But it's still not exactly cheap.

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S-14IKB laptop review

  (Rating Hidden)

The latest 14-inch Lenovo IdeaPad promises ‘effortless multi-tasking' and a portable design thanks to its latest Intel Core i5 processor and 1.5kg weight. With a tempting price and attractive design, this could be an ideal workhorse for students or...

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S

 

Lenovo's IdeaPad 530S is a meat-and-potatoes, middle-of-the-road laptop that's elevated by a slim chassis and long battery life.

Lean chassis. Long battery life and fast recharge. Dependable (if not hair-swept-back) performance.

Dim display, even at the brightest settings. Fan kicks on at unpredictable times. Intrusive bloatware, security trials.

Bottom Line: Lenovo's IdeaPad 530S is a meat-and-potatoes, middle-of-the-road laptop that's elevated by a slim chassis and long battery life.

Elegant, premium design; Slim display borders; Thin and lightweight; Strong performance; Good value

Display could be more colorful; Speakers aren't great

Lenovo IdeaPad 530s-14IKB (i7-8550U, MX150, WQHD, IPS) Laptop Review

 

Nice concept! The IdeaPad 530s is more than a simple performance upgrade, and it features a slightly redesigned base. We have had the chance to put the top model through its paces - find out how well it did in our extensive review.

classy design ; rigid case ; good port distribution ; GeForce MX150 with 2 GB GDDR5 ; acceptable battery life ; bright WQHD display ; wide viewing angles and no PWM or clouding ; generous 512 GB NVMe SSD ; comfortable backlit keyboard ; spacious...

average Wi-Fi performance ; slow SD card reader ; poor CPU turbo performance ; reflective display ; no support for dual-channel mode ; audible under load

Lenovo’s IdeaPad 530s-14IKB is a good-looking subnotebook with plenty of CPU and GPU performance thanks to its dedicated GeForce MX150 graphics card. Our particular SKU of this 14-inch notebook featured a WQHD display and a 512 GB SSD, and it sold for...

Lenovo Ideapad 530s (14″) review – not bad but still trailing the competition

 

Recently, we tried out the budget Ideapad 330s series. After that, we were able to get our hands on the Ideapad 730S (Yoga S730 in some regions) and we were astonished by the physical differences b…

Fairly good price;Doesn’t use PWM to adjust screen brightness (LG LP140WF8-SPP1 (LGD0599));Relatively cool on the outside;Fast fingerprint scanner;First class input devices;QHD display option

Glass-equipped model is back-heavy, which results in disbalance of the laptop;Covers only 54% of sRGB (LG LP140WF8-SPP1 (LGD0599));Low maximum brightness
