This is a completely new laptop and is not currently available in any countries, but is about to come. Although IdeaPad is the line C340 has a 360-degree rotation mechanism like its Yoga line.

The first impression, Lenovo IdeaPad C340 is a laptop with the largest rotating screen I've ever seen - 15 inches and very good finish (according to information from Lenovo, it will be 14-inch versions first, completely designed Similar to your copy on hand). Immediately hitting the eye is a high-contrast mirror screen, clear colors, sharp Full HD resolution and, of course, support for multi-touch (10-point support) to be used as one Windows tablet when folded back.

The Lenovo IdeaPad C340 also has a more attractive appearance than the company's previous IdeaPad products, with the lid being minimal, only a small Lenovo logo on the side.
The IdeaPad C340 keyboard part also feels good typing, not with the famous ThinkPad, but I appreciate the experience is quite impressive compared to most laptops in the market. The keyboard surface is made a bit rough and soft, the key stroke is not too deep but in return is a good bounce, the keyboard layout inherits much from the ThinkPad line, so it's easy to get used to.

Like the high-end models, the IdeaPad C340 also has a keyboard backlight and can customize many different brightness levels to easily work in low light conditions.
With the larger size of the touchpad, Lenovo also made bigger for more accurate multi-point operations. When used with Windows 10, if users can take advantage of all the swipe from 2 fingers, three fingers to 4 fingers, they can not need to leave the mouse and still ensure quick operation effectively.

If you pay close attention, there is an interesting detail, the camera at the top of the screen has a slide switch when unused users can close it to avoid being monitored if the computer is accidentally hacked. Lenovo also equipped IdeaPad C340 one-touch fingerprint sensor right next to the touchpad to easily log in via Windows Hello.

The quick experience shows that the hinges are solid, able to hold the device to stand in every position to cater for different needs such as presentation, watching movies, or using as a regular laptop. Touch screen for the very good experience, fewer fingerprints, fast and smooth feedback. For the best experience, Lenovo has equipped the latest line of the latest Whiskey Lake chip line with the highest option of i7-8565U with a maximum clock speed of up to 4.6GHz to handle all tasks smoothly.

Besides the powerful chip, the high-speed PCIe SSD incorporates a large capacity HDD for storage. Users can also choose 2GB of DDR5 discrete graphics platform to cater for graphics or gaming needs. In general, if there is a need for a multi-purpose laptop, smooth and stable performance, integrated graphics, then this is a reasonable choice.
