Good for gaming and editing

Published

on

If you’re looking for a new laptop that can handle demanding tasks, you might want to take advantage of Lenovo‘s offer for the IdeaPad 330. For just under forty thousand pesos, you could have your own 15-inch laptop with discrete graphics and fast processor.

Lenovo is marketing the decently specced IdeaPad 330 for casual gamers or individuals looking for a powerful laptop that can do video and photo editing with ease. The laptop mainly features an Intel Core i5-8300H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. Basically, Lenovo’s notebook has more than enough power than a conventional notebook in its price range.


Completing the specs sheet are the 15.6-inch Full HD display, 4GB DDR4 memory, and 1TB of storage. The laptop is also equipped with a plethora of ports including HDMI, full-size USB, and SD card reader.

You may get the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 for PhP 39,995 exclusively at the Legion Concept Store in SM North EDSA. Keep in mind that this is a limited offer until March 31, 2019. The laptop retails for PhP 47,495 in other stores, so you’re getting a pretty good discount during the promo period.

To make the deal even better, Lenovo is throwing in PhP 9,000 worth of freebies. This includes a JBL Clip 2, a Lenovo backpack, and Lenovo Accidental Daming Protection (ADP) on top of the 2-year warranty.

We already got our hands on one late last year. You may read our thoughts on the IdeaPad 330 here.
