Hinge part of IdeaPad 540 has been greatly dealt with. It has been made that capable so that it can bend back by an angle of 180 degrees. Several times, 180° mode can come into your use .

Let me pen down its dimensional report to make you understand why it guarantees portability.

Measures 323 x 227 x 15.9 (mm) (  (W x D x H) and weighs 1.63 kg, IdeaPad 540 behaves nicely when you carry it. Or, in other words, let say, it doesn't makes you feel heavy while you carry it to somewhere you need to go with it. Stay light with it.


Fit and fine, IdeaPad 540's 15.6 inch Full HD (1920x1080) panel gives out a brighter screen with a good contrast ratio. Slim in nature which further beatifies its outlooks. Color accuracy works is deeply appreciated. Further, it features IPS display technology which provides better viewing angles and clarity. IPS display also contributes a lot in terms of power efficiency that automatically drags up the battery life of the device.


Powered by 8th generation Intel Core i5-8265U processor, Lenovo IdeaPad 540 is pretty good and settles a speedy environment on the grounds of processing. It has an initial speed of 1.6 GHz and maximizes upto 3.9 GHz ( turbo clock speed ).

But IdeaPad 540 has some more surprising stuffs to worth your purchase of it. 8 GB RAM powered by DDR4 RAM technology, 128 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD, this trio is a promising package for the upliftment of the device's storage capacity. 1 TB HDD gives a lot of space for storing a lot of applications. As we all know that how much important RAM and SSD are for a better gaming platform. And we can't deny the fact that 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD proves to be healthy for gaming platform.

However, you must need to keep one thing in your mind that you will be getting all these hardware features below 70k rupees and, if you want more hardware capacities than those mentioned-above then obviously you need to unzip your wallet to pay more.

Graphically it is configured with 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce MX250 GPU which bolster the gaming arena and power usage management.

White backlitcklit keyboard of IdeaPad s540 is enough to boost your typing mood especially when you are engaged with some works that you are bound to complete it in a place where there is low light or in dark rooms. Lighted-keys surely helps you to type in dark rooms as they would be clearly visible to your eyes.

In addition to the above, you will find it's keys nice to press as they brings with them an assurity of good travel distance of their keys. Touchpad is smooth and responsive in nature .


Keeping safety in mind, Lenovo IdeaPad 540 has been engineered with fingerprint scanner that helps an individual to login into their device. And the best part of it upon which several can rejoice that you don't need to type the login password everytime to open your laptop. Just placing your set finger over the scanner completes the login process. Personally, I would like to integrate one more point regarding the benefit of fingerprint scanner and I believe that many of my readers would be up-voting this point. Several times it happens with you that whenever you are about to unlock your lappy by typing your password, somebody is sitting around you with whom you don't to share your password. How to overcome this type of situation ? Surely scanner would give complete relief. Your privacy ( password ) won't get disclosed and even, no need of remembering your login password.

Once again Lenovo has stepped-in to assure a safe usage of webcam. What they have done is fitted a shutter over the webcam to preclude any sort of hacks. When you want to take selfies or do video chats, the shutter slides out itself and the camera is ready to shoot a picture but, as soon as your shooting job is over, the shutter slides in itself to cover the camera lens. Really works smart and automatic.


Connectivity part is nicely engineered with sufficient number of ports. Hope you would not face any scarcity when you need to connect cables , but, let me first scribble out its name.

On the left hand side of Lenovo IdeaPad 540, you will get the following slots :-

a) power port for charging b) full size HDMI port c) USB - C 3.1 port d) 3.5 mm audio jack

On its right hand side, following slots are configured :-

a) 2 USB - A 3.0 ports b) SD Card reader slot


2 speakers are mounted upwards vertically on the two extreme sides of the keyboard. Fortunately, speakers have been mounted on the top of the keyboard instead of fitting it beneath the device which supports a smooth flow of the sound without any obstruction. Sound would not be so clear if the speakers were fitted at the bottom part.


Battery life is overall good. Works straight only for 9 hours after which you have to plugin your device. S540's RapidCharge technology is posted there to elevate the energy of your laptop at a blistering speed and you can charge and use it for 2 hours after 15 minutes of charging. Isn't it nice for you ?
