Lenovo Ideapad L340- 15IRH (for work & light gaming)

Any bro here have comments on this lappy - Lenovo Ideapad L340- 15IRH?
15.6".

Looking for Lenovo laptop that can open many applications (multiple Pdfs, Word, Internet tabs, Videos] at the same time. Don't want ThinkPad - totally hate that red knob in the middle! Touchscreen and Yoga not necessary.

Lenovo Ideapad L340- 15IRH Specs
Processor
: Intel Core i7-9750H Processor (2.60GHz 12MB )
Memory
: 8.0GB PC4-19200 DDR4 SODIMM2400MHz
Hard Drie
: 1TB 7200 rpm+256GB SSD PCIe
Graphics
: NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 4GBGDDR5

By the way, the blue backlight looks totally awesome
Anyone knows if it can be switched on and off - need to switch off blue backlight when at work. But can enjoy it when not bringing it to work

Is there a big difference between GTX1050 and GTX1650?
Haven't quite decided which one to get.

I'm eyeing the 9th generation processor i7-9750H.

Where's the best place to get Lenovo now -
Lenovo online, CEE or PC show?

I'm also purchasing this laptop as it's within my budget, and the price point seems like a really good deal.

Here's my customised specs:
Processor : Intel Core i5-9300H Processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.10 GHz)
Operating System : Windows 10 Home 64
Memory : 16GB DDR4 2400MHz SoDIMM
Hard Drive : 512GB Solid State Drive, M.2 2280, PCIe-NVMe
Display : 15.6" FHD (1920x1080), IPS, 250nits, Anti-glare, No touch
Graphic Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 3GB GDDR5 96bit
Keyboard : Backlit Keyboard Blue Top Printing Black English

After eCoupon and those $0.10 / $1 deals applied, getting it at $1160.20.
If shopback successful I can get 9%, $104 cashback.
So end up it only cost $1056. I think it's really worth it and I haven add in CC rebates too. I wonder if student can get more discount?

Hoping to receive some feedback on the laptop if possible. Think i'm getting over the weekend

I'm also considering this as worth well, but problem is gtx 1050 may not last long for future gaming. It barely can make it for modern gaming liao. But for light and old games, should be OK ba. I thinking of whacking the aftershock apex lite.

It was stated an increase of 50% performance from 1050 to 1650. Not sure how true, but avg fps is around 40 vs 50+

Yeah for gtx 1050 it isn't meant for gaming at high performance but rather games that I don't mind set it in low quality (maybe dota, csgo, apex legend?). I'm using it mainly for schoolwork so I think this is just nice, besides I have a desktop meant for gaming already. I won't really wanna game on a 15.6 inch laptop maybe occasionally play haha.

Anyway apex lite is another pricing tier already. If you have budget for it, I think just go for it! But bear in mind they don't really have discounts on their website, such as coupon code, shopback and CC rebate (cash is cheaper apparently).

Any bros here have review on this lappy?

Erm there's this popup on their website that ask me sign-up to their newsletter. I just provide email and spin the wheel, they gave me code. Can get up to $100 off. Maybe try looking around their website for the popup?

Still hoping to get reviews on this laptop too!

Maybe I don't need GTX1650 after all


Anyone knows where I can get this machine (L340 gaming, i7) with 16GB memory?
The standard one is with 8GB. No option to up memory so far.
Customize option don't have 7200 rpm Hard drive.

Battery life is important for me, so I prefer L340 gaming (est. 9hrs) over Legion Y540 (est 5hrs)

Hmmm i not sure if the customised option is providing you the gaming version but i can pick i7 with 16gb on it. Yeah the customised option doesn't have 7200rpm hard drive. I probably go with the SSD instead.

Anyway thanks for pm-ing. i replied you there.

Can anyone enlighten me with the difference between this two regarding SSD? whether TLC or not is better?

512GB Solid State Drive, M.2 2280, PCIe-NVMe
512GB Solid State Drive, M.2 2242, PCIe-NVMe, TLC

i just got the laptop. The keyboard backlight can be turned off

Also does anyone know how to toggle with this? between quick and quiet mode?

"The IdeaPad L340 has two distinct modes: ‘Quick’ for gaming and ‘Quiet’ for working. Each mode looks, feels, and acts differently. Simply flick between the two based on what you need to do."
