Lenovo IdeaPad D330: The Basics
The Lenovo IdeaPad D330 is the direct successor to the Lenovo MIIX 320. It is a 10.1-inch Windows tablet with a hard-cover keyboard dock. Together with that, it behaves like a normal notebook. The “D” in D330 stands for detachable.
While the tablet is quite thick with 9.5mm, it is relatively light for a Windows device with just under 600g. Unlike with the Surface Go, it features a full plastic body. You can get it in two colors called Mineral Gray and Bronze.
The display of the IdeaPad D330 has a diagonal of 10.1 inches and an aspect ratio of 16:10. Depending on the version, you can get it with a full HD or standard HD resolution. It is an IPS screen.
Lenovo is offering several internal hardware options. The cheapest one comes with an Intel Celeron N4000 dual-core chipset, while you can also get an Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core processor. Other options include 2GB or 4GB of RAM and a 32GB to 128GB internal storage. Another option is build-in LTE 4G. It also features Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2.
The cameras offer a resolution of 5 and 2 megapixels. On its side, the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 has a standard plug for the power, a USB 3.1 port, and a microSD card slot.
Keyboard Dock & Pen
One of the highlights of the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 is its keyboard dock. While a lot of competitors like the Surface tablets have soft keyboards, this one has a hard-cover keyboard. Because of that, it is more stable on your lap.
As you might expect, the keyboard is a bit smaller due to the small screen. However, the trackpad is relatively large. On the sides, the keyboard dock has two full-size USB 2.0 ports.
If you want, you can get the IdeaPad D330 with the Lenovo Active Pen 2. That is an active stylus that supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
