Lenovo Ideapad S340 Core i3 8th Generation 8145U, 4GB DDR4 RAM, 1000GB HDD, 15.6" HD Display, Windows 10
What’s in the box?
Inside the box, we found some paper manuals, the laptop itself and a 65Wh power adapter – nothing fancy.
Design and construction
Another thing we noticed is that the left side of the base can be lifted off the desk without any effort, whatsoever. At first, it was confusing, but after we disassembled the device, it all came together. Because our unit wasn’t equipped with a 2.5″ drive, there wasn’t enough weight on that side of the laptop to keep it down and counterweight the battery. However, we don’t find this as an eligible excuse, as this shouldn’t be a problem if the chassis of the notebook is strong enough.
On the left side, there is the power plug, an HDMI connector, a USB Type-C 3.1 (Gen. 1) port and an Audio Jack. On the right, you will find two USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports and an SD card reader.

Now, we conduct the battery tests with Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with. This device has a rather big for its size 52.5Wh battery.
With it, the laptop was able to last for 10 minutes shy of 13 hours of Web browsing and 10 hours and a half of video playback.
