Better graphics (the Ryzen 5, that is).

Wow....and even has a DVD drive. Most of my co-workers (teachers) drool over this...lol. Pretty good specs though. And I like this simple cosmetic look much better than the old Thinkpad style with eraser mouse and clusterfark of a keyboard/touchpad.

Good find OP.


Edit: seems a lot of people are unhappy with the touchpad on this model, and some have heat/thermal throttling issues.

Hmm, according to this review, the CPU is heavily throttled, and the screen isn't very good.

"There is still a long list of disappointing qualities despite the low asking price. Colors and RGB balance are terrible out of the box and so an end-user calibration is recommend for an overall better experience especially when playing videos. Throttling is severe at almost 41 percent according to our CineBench R15 loop test. Thus, while the Ryzen 5 2500U is a powerful Intel alternative on paper, owners of the Lenovo won't benefit fully from the AMD processor when gaming or under high loads. The costlier SKU with the more powerful Ryzen 7 2700U could potentially be a poor buy since our less demanding Ryzen 5 2500U configuration already throttles so heavily. Battery life is short as well which makes the Ideapad 330 a poor travel companion."

Honestly, despite being from China I've found Lenovo products to have almost Taiwan level quality; they seem more solid than Dells, etc.

Be aware, it's a TN panel so the colors won't be as rich as an IPS panel, and the off-angle viewing is going to be atrocious.

I am just messing with that guy. Lenovo laptops are much better than Dell in my view. Their bios and drivers are really good. As opposed to the bug-filled Dell

I got this a month ago at Best Buy $382 open box. I know it's 128 as opposed to 256 but not bad, I like that it's slim.

Unboxed this today and discovered the trackpad is missing the driver software to turn off pinch zoom.The actual ELAN software for this device is missing
It's just not there, not that I can't find the setting, the setting doesn't work.
The only option is to turn down sensitivity of touchpad which doesn't resolve.

Infuriating to DW, who this laptop was for, as the ability to turn this off has made this unusable to her, and the way she uses a touch/trackpad.
I did all the updates, including a BIOS update, trackpad driver update/rollback, windows update, etc. using Lenovo's website. I have other Lenovo laptops.

This is a documented problem, seems to be no fix for the ELAN touchpad, with reports of this issue going back to Oct. 2018,
Those who laptops have the Synaptic touchpad, appear to be okay.

Returning as defective.
Just got the RMA from Newegg
BTW, warranty displayed was only for 282 days, not one year from purchase, not the first time Lenovo has pulled this...
