5 Stars - All of the features I mention are included
IMPORTANT - if you need a touchscreen, then you want the slightly different and smaller model, Lenovo C330.
Price - Amazingly low price on sale new for $159
Fit and Finish - seamless edges, fingerprint smudge resistant, matte display, strong hinge, magnetic closure, simple and unobtrusive black color. Pleasing to the eye.
Typing - large touchpad, very spacious full-sized keyboard (minus numpad) with deep, tactile key feel. There are tool and utility keys lining the top.
Display - Big 14", sharp, vibrant and clear, everything is easy to read. Non-reflective matte coating. Chrome makes it easy to zoom if you need. No screen ghosting during fast moving videos and games. Limited Viewing Angles to be expected at this price point.
Connections - There is 1 USB 3.0 port, and a separate newer USB-C port for charging with the included tiny brick AC adapter, that with led that turns orange to green when finished. This charging cable may be flipped upside down unlike older USB ports, and the cables are long. On the same side is an HDMI connector and port for SD cards. On the opposite (right) side is the standard 3.5" audio input and security lock. There is also bluetooth for connecting to audio devices, game controllers, etc. If you need to connect multiple USB devices you will need an external HUB to make more.
Sound - the twin 2W speakers are clear and loud when needed but as always headphones or external speakers help. Bluetooth and stereo audio connector make this easy.
Battery Life - Chrome OS is built for battery life, unlike Windows 10 or Mac OS. The ARM architecture is far more efficient than x86. This notebook will last sunrise to sundown.
Performance - The type of processor in this particular notebook, ARM Cortex-A72, is much more energy efficient than x86 (Intel) and much more reliable than Apple's custom processors, without sacrificing performance. It is native 64-bit, meaning it uses its entire system memory and fully supports multi-threaded applications. Solid state disk technology, double data rate random access memory, dual-band wifi antenna, nothing was looked over. It will play the vast majority of 3D games on the Google PlayStore provided they have mouse/touchpad/keyboard support (and a lot of them do). PUBG, a very demanding title runs great at lower settings. Asphalt 8, a great looking racing game ran smoothly at High settings. War Robots, a busy multiplayer action game never skipped a beat.
User Experience - Speedy, Simple, and Stable. If you want to get away from slow Windows or Mac operating systems and you want a great deal, the Lenovo S330 is perfect. The Play Store has millions of apps.
