Lenovo IdeaPad 330S: What’s New
This new model is 3.5 pounds, about a pound lighter than the IdeaPad 330, and it includes a polished aluminum cover instead of the plastic found on the entry level IdeaPad.
This all new IdeaPad is available in 14-inch and 15-inch screen sizes and most of the bezels on the IdeaPad 330S are super thin.
