Screen panel and layout

The Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ABR has a modern and resistant design, composed of a solid and polished aluminum cover, very commonly used by the brand in other notebooks on its portfolio. It boasts having a rather convenient form factor and lightweight, weighing only 2.2 kilograms with the battery included.

The AMD A10-9600P CPU included in this laptop is a versatile processor capable of responding fluently to all kinds of situations, no matter how demanding they might be.

As for its RAM memory of the Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ABR, this becomes one of the strongest selling points of this device. It integrates a DDR4 type memory with a capacity of 12 GB that, apart from offering exceptional performance for daily use tasks, it also consume less power resources than other types of memory.

If watching online series and movies, reading content online, browsing the web or dealing with text and spreadsheet documents are your thing, you won’t have any problems with this laptop, nor you will find a task that the Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ABR cannot execute smoothly.

Graphic processing

The Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ABR also integrates a graphics processor from the aforementioned AMD brand, the Radeon R5, with 2 GB DDRL3 RAM memory that will offer a responsive experience when playing multimedia content on the laptop as well as casual not-so-demanding games and digital editing programs at an amateur-intermediate level, in a fluid way.

The graphics processing module comes integrated with the motherboard, and therefore it is not suited for the needs of the most demanding users for this matter. If you have a game title that requires too much processing power, it won’t run smoothly. This is something we need you to know straight and without hesitation: This is not a gaming laptop.

For more demanding tasks, gaming needs and what not, we can recommend the Gigabyte Aorus 17G XD Laptop. This piece of equipment is adapted to the needs of the most gamers, packing an amazing processing power and really good display options.

Autonomy may vary depending on how you use the laptop. This is a relative concept and therefore we cannot guarantee 5 hours of autonomy to see a movie at full brightness, or connected to an external monitor. For more demanding tasks connecting the computer to the power supply would be advisable.


As far as internet connectivity is concerned, the inclusion of a Wi-Fi connection under the 802.11ac standard that works at a dual frequency of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz for faster and more stable web browsing as well as Bluetooth technology to share files and data on its version 4.0.

In addition, it includes a DVD reader/writer combo unit. Although nobody burns CDs or DVDs anymore, at least you can enjoy watching movies in this format with excellent sound quality from its Dolby Audio through the integrated stereo speakers.

For the rest, its connection ports are summarized in one Ethernet, one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, a 4 in 1 MicroSD card reader and their respective VGA and HDMI inputs to reproduce the contents of your screen on televisions and external monitors larger format with Full HD resolution.

In summary, when we speak about the Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ABR we talk about a good and reliable laptop for accomplishing those daily office activities, long work sessions, multimedia tasks and casual entertainment thanks to its ergonomic AccuType keyboard, descent processing power, relatively small size and light weight.
