A new variant of the Lenovo IdeaPad S300, a slim 13.3-inch Ultaportable laptop has been released in the Philippines. It is one of the better value for money options in the market priced at just Php19,999. It comes with a 13.3-inch (1366 x 768) display, an Intel Celeron Processor 887, 2 GB's of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. For an operating system it uses Window 8 (Single Language). It is not locking in ports and connectivity options with a USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out and a 2-in-1 card reader. At just under 0.9 inches thick and 4 pounds in weight at makes a nice carry laptop. All in all not a bad package for under Php20K.
What it does lack is a touchscreen. Asus' 11.6-inch Windows 8 touch enabled VivoBook 202e is just a few hundred more. Those who want a touchscreen and are okay with a smaller display may want to look at that instead.
