Looking for a new laptop to add in our gadgets? Let’s come with us. Considering your demands into account, we have done a detailed Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Review to make your decision easier. 

Detailed Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Review

If you are running low on budget and your old laptop needs to be replaced urgently, Lenovo IdeaPad is a solid choice for any work profile, be it student, an entrepreneur or a homemaker. With the 15.6 inch display, the laptop has a sturdy body, a comfortable keyboard, and elegant design. Surprisingly, Lenovo IdeaPad 330 has a DVD drive, which is something typically encountered on laptops these days. But on the downside, what we have noticed is its poor display, short battery life, and below-average performance that can spoil your fun. But you’ll still find it one of the best laptops under $300. Check out why it’s worth buying with the help of our gathered Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Specification and other detailed reviews. 

Price And Configuration:

The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 variable is available in various configurations at different prices. We are here with a $265 budget model with specifications of 15.6 inch, 1336*768 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N4100 CPU, 4 GB & 500 GB of RAM, and 5400-rpm hard-drive.  

Let’s move towards the display and other specifications of Lenovo IdeaPad330.

Design, Display & Audio:

The body of the laptop is made of plastic, but the matte-like finish makes it look metallic. Around 2.1 kg in weight will feel heavy to lift but it won’t be a burden once you get used to it. The surface around the keyboard is of the same color but the keys are a little darker which is quite good to recognize the letter easily in dim light as well. 

A thick plastic hinge runs across the entire width of the display to keep it safe. Also, there are thick bezels around the sides of the display. The display of the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 folds back to 180 degrees which is quite a feasibility feature. 

With the 15.6 inch display, the model got the IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1366*768. The maximum brightness of the screen is sufficient while using it in the room or office. Your text, luckily, stays almost readable until the display pushes back at the angle of 130 degrees. 

Moving towards the speakers of the IdeaPad 330, audio through the inbuilt down-firing speakers is clear but feeble. The speakers are good for a quiet conference room of 15*25 ft. else, they are quite good for mid to high frequencies. 

Keyboard And TouchPad:

Well, the keypad is quite smooth with curved chiclet-style keys which are nicely sized and fairly chicky. The keys on the keyboard look flat and feel shallow which is perfect for everyday typing. Still, the keyboard lacks many significant things like backlighting and dedicated keys like Home, End, Page up, & Page Down. 

The touchpad of the laptop was not a precision unit and the Lenovo Website only offered a driver for the ELAN touchpad. With no additional utility to tweak the touchpad settings for taps and swipes, there is no option to double-tap. Apart from this, the touchpad worked well and the button in the bottom half is easy to press and activate. 


The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 has all the ports you could ask for. The right side of the laptop is taken up on the DVD drive. Yes, the CD drive exists in this new model of Lenovo. And on the opposite side of the IdeaPad 330 is the side where you’ll find all your required ports including USB 3.1 port, a USR 20. Input and an RJ45 Ethernet port, An HDMI, and your entertainment partner headphone/mic combo jack. There is also a 4-in-1 card reader port so that you can transfer your photos from the SD card without a dongle. 


If you’re buying Lenovo IdeaPad 330 for video conferencing purposes, then you are going to have a bad impression on your meeting. The 640-480 is possibly the worst for the video conferencing. Otherwise, it would be Okay.  

Battery Life: 

Here we would like to suggest you stay near a power plug if you’re planning to use your laptop away from your home or office. With a runtime of 5 hours and 52 minutes, Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is a little down in battery backup.

So this is our try to make your purchasing decision easier. If you’re looking for good battery backup, you can also try Dell Inspiron 5578, otherwise, Lenovo IdeaPad would be perfect for streaming videos, movies, and other typing work.
