A couple days back, Chinese tech giant Lenovo launched a new 2-in-1 laptop that kind of slipped under the radar of many, we’re talking about the Lenovo Ideapad D330. The device is also rather affordable starting at 2799 yuan (around $400), though price spikes up to about $580 for the top variant.
The Lenovo Ideapad D330 is equipped with a 10.1-inch 1080P display that is, of course, touchscreen enabled for up to ten fingers. Meanwhile the keyboard below is magnetically connected, it can be quickly removed in one second and be used to set the device into four modes: fully-fledged laptop, tablet, tent and reverse laptop.
The thinnest part of the fuselage is only 5.8mm with the thickest part being 9.5mm. It is light and portable, sporting a curved body which gives it a more ergonomic design. The hard keyboard then makes it a better option compared to something like the Microsoft Surface Go, bringing a better typing experience along with 2 USB ports and an additional battery.
The new D330 also comes with an improved keyboard size and key travel, meanwhile the touchpad now has a 18% larger area than the previous generation, supporting three-finger and four-finger gestures. In terms of battery life, Lenovo claims that the 2-in1 can play 1080p videos (locally stored) for 12 hours straight.
The Lenovo Ideapad D330 is available in China in four configurations all running Windows 10 Home:
- Pentium N4000 processor + 4GB memory + 64GB storage version, 2799 yuan ($400);
- Pentium N4000 processor + 4GB memory + 128GB storage version, 2999 yuan ($435);
