Now, in the past three months I’ve come across a few budget laptops. Some were good, but others, not so much. I’d like to pick three amongst them and see how they stack up against one another against some specific parameters. Let’s go with three Lenovos: theIdeaPad 330, theIdeaPad 330S, and theThinkPad E480. All three models have a starting price well below Rs 40,000 and a 1TB hard drive. But that’s where the similarities end.
TheIdeaPad 330 is the most barebones of the three. The unit I reviewed came with a low-end AMD E2-9000 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and an integrated AMD GPU with 80MB of video memory. It has a plastic body with a brushed finish on the area around the keyboard.
