2017 Lenovo 110s 11.6 inch HD Laptop with Celeron N3060 Review

2017 Lenovo 110s 11.6 inch HD Laptop 

Lenovo 110s Premium Built High Performance 11.6 inch HD Laptop

The latest 2017 release Lenovo 110s is a modern 11.6-inch laptop with a premium look and feel, decent performance, reasonable connectivity options and 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal for a very low price. It is designed for simple daily stuff like internet browsing, sending emails, working on Word and Excel, listening to music and watching videos. Technical specs include the dual-core Intel Celeron N3060 processor (2MB L2 cache) at 1.60 to 2.48 GHz speeds with turbo boost, 2GB DDR3 SDRAM memory that should be enough for daily basic multitasking at this level, 32GB eMMC storage that is common to the low end portable machines and that is a little faster than a mechanical drive but slower than an SSD and Windows 10 operating system with faster boot-ups and more user-friendly features than the previous versions of Windows. 

Lenovo 110s High Performance 11.6 inch HD Laptop

Lenovo 110s is a slim and lightweight machine with 0.69-inch thickness and 2.2 lb. weight and you can take it pretty much anywhere you go. 11.6 inch non-touch, energy efficient LED backlit high definition display has the typical 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. Graphics card is the entry level integrated Intel HD 400 Braswell with shared memory so you can only play the internet games, do simple photo editing and surf the net. There isn’t a built-in DVD/CD Drive but reasonable connectivity including the 802.11bgn wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 2.0 ports to connect peripherals, an HDMI output if you wish to connect it to a larger screen, a Media Card Reader that supports microSD format to transfer your photos, a Headphone/microphone combo jack and a standard webcam with an integrated microphone on the top bezel. We would have liked to see a faster USB 3.0 port here and perhaps the 802.11ac variety wireless but we can’t really complain at this very low price point. The keyboard is non-backlit and there is no 10-key numeric pad because of the compact size of the machine but has spaced out keys and a good size trackpad that functions well. 

The Quarter 2 of 2016 release Celeron CPU has a Thermal Design Power- TDP of 6 watts, and the system includes a 2-cell lithium ion battery so you can expect around 6 hours of battery life in normal usage. We’ve mentioned you’d get the 1-year Microsoft Office subscription if you’ll need to use Word, Excel, PowerPoint for work and a month of McAfee LiveSafe virus protection is also included but we do not recommend that you renew it when it expires as the new Windows comes with enhanced built-in security with Windows Defender and just the free AVG downloaded off the internet would suffice. A couple of people mentioned the touchpad not working properly but resetting the system fixed the problem. This is an entry-level machine to consider if you want something basic and portable to let you do your daily work when you’re out and about or browse the net, watch movies etc. with reasonable overall performance and reliability and you don’t want to spend more. It is easy to set up, has the full functionality of a Windows 10 laptop, is lightweight and slim, feels sturdy, has a decent keyboard that is easy to type on and even includes a one-year subscription to Microsoft Office.
