Great for gaming, and work:
It works great on both fronts. The major overlooked feature is that it is easily upgradable with an extra slot for a 2nd SD and extra memory slots. I’ve played several of the recently released games including Call of Duty and Counterstrike with no issues. From a professional standpoint, I am able to easily run an Android emulator of Pixel 2.
I know I will be upgrading the RAM and adding a larger SD, but I got the good processor and graphics card. This laptop trades battery performance for an upgraded video card and processor, but that is the main reason it is discounted.
I’m always near power except on airplanes, but it lasts 3-4 hours while playing games, and upwards of 6-8 hours while doing development.
Powerful for 1080p gaming and easy to add extra ram/m2:
Runs a little hot but anything with this much power will run hot when gaming. Went with the ASUS A15 originally but they seem to have intentionally broke their heat exhaust system which caused lockups. No problems with the MSI.
Great gaming laptop:
I didn’t know too much about gaming laptops before looking to buy one, but I chose this one because of its fast processor and good graphics card. I can finally run my games on high graphic settings now! The only thing I don’t love is the trackpad, it took some getting used to. I caved and bought a mouse, and now I have zero complaints.
Lenovo Ideapad l340 Review
|A new dimension of gaming performance awaits – with 9th-generation Intel Core i5 processors, the IdeaPad L340 gaming has the power you need to outshoot, outrun, and outsmart anyone. Includes 8GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB NVMe SSD.|
Take it to the next level – with the latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics behind you, you can tame the hottest titles with faster, smoother, and more power-efficient gameplay. Plus, the 15.6-Inch screen delivers a stunning full HD IPS Display with 1920 x 1080 resolution.
A portal to a new sound Dimension – hardwired into every IdeaPad L340 gaming is advanced Dolby audio technology. Take your mobile gaming experience to another dimension and have a real blast along the way.
Control your own Fate – GAME in ‘quick’ Mode or work in ‘quiet’ Mode. It’s your call with a simple function setting that lets you shift gears between modes.
Great on a budget, with some caveats:
First off, performance on this laptop is great. The i5-9300h will pretty much be able to do anything except for the heaviest tasks, while the GTX 1650 can handle a large variety of games, though the most graphics intense games will need medium to low settings. While there are only 8 GB of RAM, in my usage (internet browsing, college work, occasional gaming) that has never been a problem. Again, this isn’t the absolute most powerful laptop, but it is probably far above average in performance. Battery life is surprisingly good for a gaming laptop, especially if you undervolt (which I did by -125 mV if you’re interested), and it runs relatively cool as well, rarely going over 80 C.
I personally really like the minimalist design, with blue accents instead of the “gamer” red, so this won’t turn too many heads in a professional meeting. The screen bezels are relatively small too, and while apparently the color gamut is not the best, that either doesn’t matter or isn’t even apparent to me (in case you saw reviews criticizing this). Maybe if you’re in graphic design, this might matter, though. The hinge is strong, and can bend all the way to 180 degrees. It’s not a touchscreen laptop, but there are some uses, such as watching a video in bed or something. The system is also really slim for a gaming laptop, and easy to carry around, which is an excellent design choice.
The build quality isn’t the best, being mostly plastic, but it is still smooth to feel, so there is at least that. The keyboard isn’t very clicky, and the travel distance is a little small. It takes a while to get used to, but eventually you may get used to it. The backlit keyboard is nice, though. The trackpad unfortunately uses garbage Synaptics drivers. I played around with the registry a bit to add a couple gestures, but coming from Windows Precision, the trackpad is definitely a massive downgrade from Precision for me. I tried installing Precision drivers, and they worked (excellently, I might add) temporarily, because I guess Windows update has something in place to really latch you on to Synaptics drivers.
Although there are definitely some sacrifices made (including some that I haven’t mentioned, such as needing to buy a separate cable if you want to add a hard drive or having only one slot for RAM), I think that on balance this laptop provides fantastic value for $680. In some areas you get what you pay for, but for $680 this laptop can do a lot more than others.
Single channel ram slot:
Overall decent laptop for the $900 range, you get what you paid for.
Battery life is ok if you put everything to the lowest. The single-channel RAM is a turn-off, if this was a double RAM channel then it would be a 5/5.
Very good laptop for the price – capable of gaming all titles:
I wanted something relatively cheap for my college work but something also capable of gaming. This laptop hits those two points very well. I have not tried playing the Witcher 3 or other graphically intense games yet due to the amount of time I have, but I have tried to the Master Chief Collection as well as the second newest installment of tomb raider – both were able to run at the highest settings at 60 FPS.
Overall, awesome laptop for the price. Beautiful simplistic design as well.
Now i provided every little detail about both laptops, you can now choose one according to these points i provided above, which one suits you buy it.
But if you asked me i would have been gone with Msi gf65 thin 9sd-252 15.6 here.
