The Lenovo Ideapad S540-15IML 81NG003MUK laptop model is especially interesting. On the one hand, it has the price of an ASUS VivoBook, but on the other hand, you can get it up to a GeForce GTX 1650—like a ZenBook. So, how does the manufacturer build an all-aluminium chassis that suits such a GPU inside, and still manage to maintain adequate pricing?

- The use of aluminium in the laptop build-up means that the foundation cannot be deformed.
- The Lenovo Ideapad S540-15IML 81NG003MUK allows you to close the webcam on the top edge
- Also, the workmanship turns out to be quite good overall, even though the foundation creaks slightly as it is bent at the edges.
- The large center hinge holds the display lid tightly in position. The Lenovo Ideapad S540-15IML 81NG003NUK is not equipped with a maintenance flap and the battery is built-in.
- Low performance
The Lenovo Ideapad S540-15IML 81NG003MUK possesses an HDMI port and an audio port, however, that’s not all to a laptop. The choice of power connector for Lenovo is annoying. Although you can still see the traditional round plug in the product photos, the manufacturer actually used the old SlimTip link, which was also used earlier in ThinkPads.
