The stylish Lenovo IdeaPad 520S is ready to take care of all your work and play requirements. With its Dual-Core Intel processor and Solid State Drive (SSD), you’ll have super speed, no matter if you’re emailing, surfing the net, watching your favourite programme or working on your next project. It also has a handy 4 in 1 card reader for all your data transfer needs.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 520S comes equipped with an Intel 7th generation, Dual-Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM and as such, will fly through your computing requirements. With enough onboard power to take on more demanding errands, you’ll experience flawless multi-tasking without interruption.

Solid State Drive
The Lenovo IdeaPad 520S’s 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) gives you the capacity to store your documents and media, while ensuring quicker and reliable access to your files and programs. SSDs are far faster than regular hard drives. Ingeniously, SSDs don't use moving parts to work, which makes them far more dependable and also quieter.
With the IdeaPad 520S’s 14" Full HD Antiglare screen, you can enjoy your pictures, videos and films in superb, high definition and then immerse yourself in deep, rich sound thanks to the two Dolby enabled Harman speakers.
Packed with ports
Featuring one USB Type-C, one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 ports, you can be sure there is space for all your external devices to be attached. The 4 in 1 memory card reader will helpfully give you the chance to directly upload your images from a digital camera to the computer. If that’s not enough, the IdeaPad 520S also has a HDMI port, so you’re all set for any larger multimedia experiences.
