The Overall Rating remains Based on our Editors’ Review.

Lenovo IdeaPad S340 remained officially launched in August 2019.

The laptop remains powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor, while Premium Dolby Audio provides a rich audio experience. Includes 2 x USB 3.1 (1 supports charging), USB-C, HDMI, 4-in-1 SD card reader, headphone/microphone combo, and DC jack.

The battery remains powered by 52.5 Wh, which works for 8 hours. It weighs 1.69 KG and has two 2W speakers with Dolby Audio Premium. It is available in several colors: Onyx Black, Sand Pink, Abyss Blue, and Platinum Grey.

Price and Availability

Choosing a laptop sky (model) is hard enough at the best of times, but the S340 comes in variations from AMD and Intel.

Official pricing starts at a fair of £329 for the cheapest AMD model, which comes with a Ryzen 3 processor. You can then hurdle to a Ryzen 5 or 7, with other upgrades, for £499 or £599. Either way, these remain all very cheap and affordable laptops.

On the Intel side of the barrier, you can get a Pentium Gold model at £349 with several different Core i3/5/7 models hitting a not-so-budget of £749.

Check out the Intel Range Here.

These are all 14-inch laptops; as usual, we can’t test them all, but we have the cheapest of the lot with AMD models bearing the model name ‘S340-14API’. You can also opt for a 15-inch model (S340-15IWL), which starts at £349. UK retailers include Amazon, Curry’s PC World, and Laptop Outlet, with prices as low as £259.

Lenovo makes things pretty confusing with a version of the Chromebook S340, but we’re reviewing the Windows 10 model here.

IdeaPad S340 Price, Lenovo Ideapad s340-15

The IdeaPad S340 has a plastic construction with interwoven carbon fiber threads. I wouldn’t know to look at the device, though, which is a shame – not that we’d expect good carbon fiber at this price point.

Theoretically, it makes the plastic more robust, but the S340 has an aluminum finish on the lid, which is nice.

This laptop isn’t thin or light, but Lenovo still calls it “ultra-thin.” At 17.9mm thick, we wouldn’t say it fits that description. Part of the design makes the S340 look slim, but that’s just an illusion.

The 14-inch model weighs 1.55kg, while the 15-inch jumps to 1.8kg. Again, not headline-grabbing numbers, but this is a budget laptop.

IdeaPad S340 Keyboard

A new design feature is the True Block privacy shutter that allows you to cover the webcam if you need to physically. This has leaked from the ThinkPad range, which is good to see. However, the slider is a bit fiddly to use, and it’s not too obvious that it’s there.

We look at the Sand Pink model, but you can get the S340 in Onyx Black, Abyss Blue, and Platinum Grey.

keyboard and Touchpad

We like the (optionally backlit) keyboard, which has a springy, responsive feel with enough travel to satisfy. There are at least a few function keys at the top, so you can easily adjust things like screen brightness. There are some annoyingly minor keys in places like the up and down arrows that take up the space of a regular key.


5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Laptop for everyday use. This is a detailed review of the Lenovo Ideapad S340. This laptop is powered by the newest and powerful Intel Core i5-1035G4 with Iris Plus Graphics. To start, the build quality of this laptop is excellent.
