The Lenovo Ideapad 110s 80WG0001US is a bestselling budget friendly laptop that has been praised for its affordable price, portable design, improved processor and for its 1 year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal. However, the tiny 32GB SSD severely limits this laptop’s storage capabilities when not connected to the Internet. With Windows 10 installed, you will only have around 17GB of usable storage space for your applications and files. We recommend either purchasing a large MicroSD card or using a cloud-based storage solution to extend this laptop’s storage space The Lenovo Ideapad 110s 80WG0001US also features a shorter battery.


The Lenovo Ideapad 110s 80WG0001US is an updated version of the Lenovo IdeaPad 100s and now features a more powerful Intel Pentium processor. At a light 2.53-pounds and with its compact 11.6-inch display, this laptop is great for students or for those who are constantly on the go. While the older 100s offered an impressive 9 hour battery life, the new 110s only manages 7 hours off of a single charge.

This might have to do with the Pentium processor that has replaced the Atom processor on the 100s. While the Intel Pentium N3060 processor is an improvement over the older Atom processor, it is still not suited for more intensive applications. However, if sending emails, using Skype and browsing the web are all you need it for, then this PC will be more than enough for you. The 2GB of RAM will allow you to use most applications, however, it cannot be upgraded and it will struggle with resource hungry applications such as Google Chrome.

The 32GB of eMMC flash memory is limited to only 17GB with Windows 10 installed, but users can install a MicroSD card to expand the 110’s storage space. We recommend a high speed 128GB MicroSD card or a good cloud-based storage solution. Like most Windows laptops in this category, you will get a 1 year subscription to Office 365 Personal, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. The display is not the brightest or the most vivid, however, at under $200 dollars, we can’t expect a Full-HD display.

    The Lenovo Ideapad 110S is faster than the competition and has a responsive keyboard. But its battery life is shorter than average, and you won't get the fastest Wi-Fi speeds.

    The Lenovo Ideapad 110S is a simple but capable budget laptop for those with basic needs and who don't want to make the Chromebook leap.

    The Lenovo Ideapad 110S is a frill-free $200 laptop that's good enough for basic use, but not much more. If you're on a shoestring budget, but need Windows, it's worth a look.
