We’re on day two of Microsoft’s annual 12 Days of Deals promotion, and today’s deal is a 15-inch Lenovo IdeaPad 100 Signature Edition laptop for just $200.
As with all deals, I believe this promotion is U.S.-only, sorry.
Price: $199 (normally $349)
Description: With solid performance and a slim, lightweight build, the Lenovo Ideapad 100 is a reliable, everyday laptop for work and play. A power-efficient Intel Celeron N2840 processor keeps everything humming smoothly along, while a 15.6-inch display provides a roomy canvas and big picture. And with Windows 10, you get easy ways to snap apps in place, create new desktops, and work and play across all your devices.
Specs: 15.6-inch HD LED (1366 x 768), 2.16 GHz Intel Celeron N2840, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD (5400 RPM), 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI out, headphone output/microphone input combo, 802.11b/g/n (Miracast enabled), 10/100 Ethernet, 4-in-1 card reader, Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
Weight: 4.31 pounds
Key features: Signature Edition means there is no crapware or useless fluff, DVD drive.
My take: This one isn’t particularly great, but if you’re looking for an inexpensive, kid-friendly laptop that you’ll just use around the house, this wouldn’t be a bad choice.
