Lenovo 130-15AST 81H5002FUS Review

The all new Lenovo 81H5002FUS is a standard sized 15.6 inch laptop that is geared towards the budget shopper. One of the ways that Lenovo is able to keep the prices down on this model is by going with the more affordable AMD processor instead of an expensive Intel. Below we will breakdown some of the benefits and downsides to this model to hopefully help you make the decision if it is the right choice for your needs.


Processor: AMD A9

Memory: 4 GB of RAM

Storage: 128 GB SSD

Screen: 15.6 Inches

OS: Windows 10


  • One of the things you see on this laptop model which isn’t overly common on a budget friendly device is a fast performing SSD hard drive. This can make a great improvement in performance due to the much faster read and write times achieved by this technology
  • The full sized 15.6 inch display is great for those who do not want to sacrifice viewing area just to save a few dollars
  • The AMD A9 processor is powerful enough to handle most application processing needs while still being affordable
  • Windows 10 has made huge improvements over previous operating systems and is easy to use and well liked among most consumers


  • The limited amount of memory is going to be this laptops biggest bottleneck when it comes to performance. 4 GB just isn’t enough for heavy multi-tasking or running resource intensive applications
  • It only comes with a very basic integrated graphics card so that means gaming will be very difficult if not outright impossible due to the higher video demands of modern games


Anybody looking for a laptop with a full sized display but doesn’t have high demands for processing power or memory requirements will find a great affordable option with this Lenovo.
