When your laptop’s lagging like crazy whenever you run multiple programs, it's time to hit refresh and consider the possibility of replacing your unit. In this fast-paced world, free time is a luxury few can afford; having a decent, reliable laptop may give you that prerogative. Case in point: Lenovo's AMD-powered devices.
Based in California, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) develops computer processors and related technologies for business and consumer markets. Their main products include microprocessors, motherboard chipsets, embedded processors and graphics processors for servers, workstations and personal computers, and embedded systems applications.
Since Lenovo aims to bring the latest technology straight to consumers, Filipinos among them, the partnership between the two institutions is a union that instigates high expectations. And high, it meets.
Here's a quick rundown on the specs of AMD-powered Lenovo devices that caught our attention.
For budding artists (Yoga 530)
The Yoga 530's 360-degree hinge allows it to transform into four models: laptop, tablet, tent, and stand. It is bundled with Lenovo's Active Pen, which features pin-point accuracy giving the natural feel of a pen-on-paper writing experience. Together with its palm-rejection feature and beautiful display, Yoga 530 is an excellent choice for artists. Price starts at 34,995php.
For power users (IdeaPad 720s)
Weighing only 1.14 kg and measuring 13.6 mm thin, the IdeaPad 720s is made for those who use their device almost 24/7 for work. It has a battery life of up to 9 hours, making performance uninterruptible even when on-the-move. Price starts at 59,995php.
For modern avid gamers (Legion Y530)
Be it for work, school, or playing video games, the Legion Y530 can handle anything with ease. The device, one of the first few laptops to feature Lenovo's reimagined design for its gaming PC lineup, has an improved thermal layout with dual fan design and quad-vent cooling for increased airflow, making overheating during work or gaming sessions a thing of the past. Price starts at 54,995php.
For modern professionals (IdeaPad D330)
A tablet and laptop in one, the IdeaPad D330 is suited for professionals in today's modern workplace, as well as young adults with light productivity and study needs. Its keyboard is detachable, turning the device into a tablet that boasts a convenient trackpad and overall ideal companion for the on-the-go professional. Price starts at 24,995php.
For first-time buyers (IdeaPad 330, 330s and 530s)
Not sure where to invest? These three IdeaPads are great choices to start. All three can have up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ or AMD Ryzen™ mobile processor, which assures a faster boot-up time and gives a boost for multitasking, gaming, and entertainment. Prices start at 17,995php, 30,995php, and 49,995php, respectively.
Letting go of your old "barely functioning" unit is no piece of cake. But if it means saving much more time for yourself, then it's something no professional should pass up. As Lenovo likes to say, "Different is better."
