A lot of people are looking for a portable device that requires as less space as possible but it’s powerful enough to deal with some basic, daily tasks. Of course, most of them opt for a tablet, but for those who want the same portability and Windows is their favorite operating system, there are laptops like the Lenovo S21E 80M4000PUS.
With a more than pocket-friendly price tag, it’s a great choice for anybody who travels a lot and needs a small device, able to fit in every luggage with ease.
It’s powered by an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, running at 2.16 GHz, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM, providing enough power to run basic programs and deal with daily tasks like browsing the Web, listening to music or consuming some media.
The graphics department is represented by an Intel HD Graphics on-board chip, with shared video memory, while the storage capacity counts just 32 GB, provided by a solid state drive. Even though it doesn’t have as much space as a hard disk drive, a SSD has no moving parts and it’s able to deliver faster start-up times and data access.
If you need more space on the Lenovo S21E 80M4000PUS, you can opt for cloud storage, connect an external HDD through the USB 3.0 port or even expand it with a memory card, using the microSD card slot. A DVD/CD drive is not included.
In terms of connectivity, the laptop features a micro HDMI outpot, in order to expand your viewing options. It also has built-in high-speed wireless LAN, for quick Web access, Bluetooth 4.0, perfect for syncing the laptop with compatible devices, like smartphones or tablets, and a 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack.
Moving on to the display, the Lenovo S21E 80M4000PUS is using a 11.6″ LED-backlit panel, with a typical HD ready resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. Compared to a regular 15.6″ laptop, the image will be better, thanks to the increased pixel density.
Above, we can spot a 0.3 MP webcam, perfect for keeping in touch with friends or family over dedicate video chatting apps. Also, the laptop has two 1.5 W speakers, which, thanks to the Dolby Advanced Audio technology, are able to deliver rich and clear sound.
Like mentioned above, this is one of the lightest and slimmest laptops you can buy, weighing just 2.75 lbs and measuring 0.74″ in thickness, for maximum portability.
The Lenovo S21E 80M4000PUS is available for just $169.59, being one of the cheapest laptops you can currently buy. It comes with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 and the ability to upgrade to Windows 10. Finally, it has a basic software package included and a trial of Microsoft Office 2013.
