- Fascinating craftsmanship. Though it would without stress pass for an aluminium build (which isn’t quite true) by virtue of its polished platinum gray frame, it artistically employs a metallic construction.
- Voluminous storage for your files. With 1 TB HDD storage upgradable to 2 TB SATA HDD, you can get to store thousands of videos, photos and files, as well as use your notebook as an offline backup. You can also merge a 128/256 GB SSD with 1 TB HDD to enjoy the combined benefits of shorter boot-up times, faster data transfer speed as well as a large data reservoir.

- Performance not exactly terrific.

- Poor battery capacity. The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 15.6 inch notebook fails to impress on its battery life. With a claim to an average of 6 hours battery time, it normally offers just over 3 hours in typical use after a single charge.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 81DE0084UK is an affordable 15.6 inch lightweight laptop championing an exciting body design and a large storage capacity but its relatively low performance and bad battery flaws its overall performance. But, If you want something portable to do the short and simple tasks, then you should seriously consider this IdeaPad 330.
