Lenovo Y330 review

I just purchased my very first laptop. Its a Lenovo Y330. There were 3 factors I was looking for in a laptop, price, performance and portability ( da 3 Ps!:D ). I found the best compromise for all these in the lenovo y330. Although weight wise it could have been leighter esp since its screen size is just 13.3". The final choice before purchase lay between the lenovo y330 and y410 [14.1"]. In the end i chose the y330 because it had better specs.


processor : intel centrino core 2 duo T6400 @ 2.00GHz ( i will be doing programming on this machine so needed a core 2 duo processor)
ram: 3GB
hdd: 320GB
screen: 13.3"WXGA
battery: 6 cell li-ion batteries ( on power saver mode with wifi turned off i get about 3.5-4hrs battery life)
dvd slot drive ( took some getting used to but seems to work fine)
2 usb ports
headset and mic in ports ( this is in addition to the built in sound and mic which have excellent performance)
BT/wifi/ CR
vga connector

I purchased the laptop for little under Rs. 100K from TechnoCity Unity Plaza, Colombo, Sri Lanka. I checked the online reviews for this product before purchasing and found them pretty compelling.

The vendor installed Windows Vista Ultimate for me and some additional programs as well. I'm just about to install Ubuntu and set it up for dual booting. Before that i plan to use the One Key Recovery program of lenovo to backup my current system. Will give details of this in another post:)


  1. Hey harini ! thanks for your review on the laptop review. Could you please give me an update on how your laptop is performing right now?

    I am considering on buying it sometime soon. Please let me know at email add which is: velociraptor@inbox.com.

    thank you

  2. hey Noor,

    its about a month since purchase and the laptop is working great:)

    would recommend buying it esp. if u r looking for a portable laptop with lot of hard disk space. dis laptop has excellent sound quality and graphics. and the touch inductive panel is really cool for playing CDs:)

    one minus tho is the glossy black surface which retains fingerprint marks and needs to be wiped clean constantly.

    if u have any specific questions feel free to contact me. wish you luck!
