And to put it simply, this model is clearly one of the best in its category for watching videos or listening to music. In this section we will look at features such as screen size, resolution, built-in speakers.
Lenovo has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. This diagonal of 14 inches and a resolution of 1920×1080, is a good compromise. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 1.4 kg, it is easily transportable.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.

To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types.
