The Lenovo Ideapad 110 is powered by a duo-core AMD E2-9000 processor clocking at 1.80GHz. Sporting on-board Intel HD graphics, the notebook PC comes with 4GB of RAM and 500GB of HDD-based storage. While this does appear to be hardware competent enough for delivering good day-to-day performance, it still makes the laptop struggle at basic tasks quite often.
The days when laptop computers used to be super expensive are long gone. Thanks to the advances in technology and dropping manufacturing costs, there are numerous laptops (from manufacturers both big and small) available across all price segments today. So even for those who just want a notebook PC that handles the basics right, there's no dearth of choice in the market. And that's precisely the audience Lenovo is targeting with its Ideapad 110. Glancing at the raw specifications, the Lenovo Ideapad 110 appears to be a fairly decent option for those who are in the market to get their first notebook PC.
A horizontal speaker grille sits above the keyboard, whereas the trackpad (along with left and right click buttons) is below it. Coming to the sides of the Ideapad 110, the left has the power jack, Ethernet port, USB 2.0 (1), USB 3.0 (1) and 3.5mm audio jack (1). On the right, there's nothing other than a tray-loading optical disc drive and a Kensington lock. There's also a card reader slot placed at the front edge of the bottom port. Overall, the design and build quality of the Lenovo Ideapad 110 to be appreciably good.
What is an AMD E 1 Processor?
The AMD E2-9000 (codename Zacate) is a dual core processor for small notebooks and netbooks. It offers a relatively powerful integrated graphics card and a single channel DDR3-1066 memory controller. Compared to the old E-300, which is based on the same chip, the E1-1200 offers a 100 MHz higher CPU clock rate. Inside the E2-9000 two Bobcat cores can access 512KB level 2 cache per core. In comparison to the Atom processors, the Bobcat architecture uses an "out-of-order" execution and is therefore faster at the same clock speed.
Enjoy High Quality Graphics with AMD Radeon R2
The AMD Radeon R2 is an integrated DirectX 12 graphics card found in this Lenovo's AMD APUs E 2. It offers 128 shader cores across two Computer Units and is based on the GCN architecture. Clock speeds can be up to 500 MHz on this Zacate APU. The GPU does not have dedicated VRAM and will access main system memory on the APU: single-channel DDR3L-1066/1333/1600. Using its UVD (Unified Video Decoder), the GPU can support the CPU when decoding videos up to 4K. In addition, the chip integrates a specialized video encoder called VCE. Video streams can output via VGA, DVI, HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2 to up to two external monitors.
