If you’re looking for a low-cost Windows laptop, the Lenovo Ideapad 100 isn’t a bad buy. This Windows notebook offers dependable performance on a budget, a vibrant glossy display and a keyboard that is both comfortable and reliable. There’s a lot to like about this machine at this price.

However, if you don’t necessarily need the Windows operating system, something like the Toshiba Chromebook 2 or the Acer Chromebook 15 may be a better choice. Both of the previously mentioned laptops offer higher resolution displays and longer lasting battery life.

On the other hand, users willing to spend a bit more on a new Windows notebook are all but guaranteed to see significant performance gains by opting for a device with an Intel Core i3 or better processor. The bottom line is simple: the Ideapad 100 is a budget laptop that delivers good value … but you get what you pay for.
