3 reasons to buy Lenovo IdeaPad 120S (11″)

1. Good build quality (+ light and compact)

The Lenovo IdeaPad 120S features a refined chassis that is stable and compact at the same time. Furthermore, the body is made firm and robust and it is also resistant to fingerprints. In addition, the plastic bottom allows quick access to the internals. You could also easily carry your device around as it weighs just 1.23 kg, while the thickness is 21.5 mm.

2. The screen uses PWM only up to 70 nits at high frequencies

Although the display of the Lenovo IdeaPad 120S (11″) uses PWM up to 70 nits, it flickers at high frequencies making it comfortable for continuous work as it wouldn’t have such a negative impact on most users. However, if you find that disturbing, we have a solution for you and it is our Health-Guard profile, which eliminates PWM and also reduces the negative blue light emissions.

3. A 2.5″ slot + M.2 slot for internal storage

Another very nice aspect of the notebook are the storage options – you are presented with an M.2 SATA 2280 slot and a 2.5-inch SSD/HDD slot.


2 reasons NOT to buy Lenovo IdeaPad 120S (11″)

1. The display covers only 59% of sRGB/ITU-R BT.709

A rather disappointing peculiarity of the Lenovo IdeaPad 120S (11″) is the limited sRGB coverage – just 59%, so almost half of the colors won’t be reproduced when web browsing or enjoying a movie. However, installing our custom profiles results in improved color accuracy, white balance, and gamma.

2. Low-end CPU

The Lenovo IdeaPad 120S packs budget hardware components. For instance, the present processor is the low-voltage Intel Celeron N3350 which will be sufficient only for basic everyday usage.
