Product information

Sleek and sophisticated, the Lenovo IdeaPad S500 Touch is a fully featured 15.6” laptop. It includes a 10-finger multitouch screen, powerful processor and a hybrid hard drive to give you the performance of a laptop combined with the convenience of a tablet.

Key Features:

  • With Intel’s Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Ideapad S500 will give you top quality performance, whether you’re writing an essay or editing HD videos, with plenty of memory allowing for effective multi tasking.

  • The S500 contains a 24GB solid state drive to ensure your laptop boots up within seconds. You’ll also have 500GB of space to store all of you documents, videos, songs and photos on the hard drive.

  • The HD touch screen has been designed for Windows 8, making accessing your favourite programs easier than ever. It’ll also provide a clear, crisp picture with stunning colours, making it great for interacting with videos and photos.

  • Built-in stereo speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio ensure greater clarity and consistent tone while providing a cinematic surround-sound experience. You can even customise your audio settings to ensure you’ll have your preferred custom levels across all of your music.

  • The full-sized, island style AccuType keyboard provides a comfortable, spill resistant typing experience. The curved keys and ergonomic spacing help ensure typing accuracy, while the numeric keypad makes number punching convenient. The multitouch touchpad also allows for intuitive navigation with support for gestures making it easier to scroll and zoom.

  • The integrated 720p webcam is great for online video chats, whether you’re holding a conference with colleagues or catching up with friends and family. It includes low light sensitivity to keep you visible in darker environments and face-tracking so you can remain in the frame while you multitask.

  • With a battery life of up to 5 hours, you’ll be able to take the S500 Touch with you and not worry about needing to find a power supply all the time. And with Lenovo Energy management, the long-term durability of your battery is protected, so you won’t see the battery running down much faster after a few months use.

  • An ultrafast USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports and Bluetooth connectivity give you plenty of options to connect to other devices. The S500 also features an Ethernet port and built-in Wi-Fi to help you connect to available networks.
