It used to be back in the day that laptops were considerably a lot more expensive than desktops, but fast forward to today and we have plenty of affordable laptops to choose from. If you’re in the market for such a device and you’re on an extremely tight budget, you’re in luck as Lenovo has officially announced the Ideapad 100, a Windows-based laptop that can be yours from $250.
Yup, for $250 that sleek-looking laptop you see in the photo above can be yours! But what about its specs? Did Lenovo cut a ton of corners in order to make it so cheap? Based on what we can tell, it does not seem to be the case. For starters Lenovo has offered up the laptop in 14-inch and 15-inch sizes.
Both models will feature a 1366×768 resolution which is pretty decent. Under the hood, an Intel BayTrail-M N3540 processor can be found along with up to 8GB of RAM. It will feature integrated Intel Graphics so don’t expect high-end gaming from this rig. Users can choose up to 500GB in a HDD or up to 128GB with an SSD.
It will come with the usual Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and according to Lenovo, it will be able to last up to 4 hours on a single charge, making it a relatively decent laptop for students who needs a computer for class. Like we said it is priced starting from $250 and that price will go up depending on which specs you go for. The Lenovo Ideapad 100 is also expected to be made available for purchase starting in June.
