Compared to the recent Front Page Ideapad 330s, this laptop is $90 more, but the upgrades over the 330s are:

Bigger battery (53Wh vs 30Wh); Considering battery life is abysmal on the 330s, this is a pretty big deal. It may last 6-8 hours instead of less than 4 on the 330s.

Newer AMD chip (3500u vs 2500u); gains of 5-10% on CPU and integrated GPU

Touchscreen; and 250nits brightness (vs non-touch 220nits)

Backlit KB (vs none)


Thanks to tonyangelone for spotting this.

I bought this the other day. Showed up last night. It is an incredible deal for the price. Excellent trackpad and keyboard and the screen is especially impressive for this price range, and mine has only a tiny bit of blacklight bleed in the bottom corners (much less than the Y740 I recently returned). Even the speakers are decent. A great all-round media and productivity laptop - couldn't be happier with it.

SD needs to work on their deal alerts. This caused my Home Depot alert to go off.

I got the s340 i5 from Staples and upgraded the memory with Crucial 16GB module and system is working fine.

Hmmm, this or the 330s? I see the awesome comparison from the OP, but can anyone weigh in on the $90 premium being truly worth it?

Also Lenovo has the Military/Students/Teacher/Senior Discount via ID.me, knocks an additional 5% off.

Anyone know how far the RAM can be upgraded? It's not easy to find on Lenovo's site and the last time I checked crucial they were wrong

4Gb is onboard and 4Gb is SODIMM. In previous S340 threads, people have swapped a 16Gb in place of the 4Gb SODIMM for a total of 20Gb. Not sure whether higher possible.

Mine's not the IPS version, but it is the s340 and I believe it can go to 16GB... I have 12GB in mine after replacing the 4GB stick with an 8GB.

I swapped out the 4gb for 16gb so I had 20gb in total. Although, not sure what happened, but my laptop stopped working the next day and I've been in a battle with Lenovo over getting them to fix it
