Although we didn't test this exact laptop, we find that Lenovo laptops are generally durable and loaded with security features. For peace of mind, the IdeaPad S340 features a built-in privacy shutter for the camera and an optional fingerprint reader. 

The clamshell design IdeaPad S340 sports a carbon fiber construction and an aluminum finish lid. Two top-firing Dolby Atmos speakers complement its 15-inch display, which makes it great for movies and music. 

For your connectivity needs, this laptop equips you with a decent amount of ports. It has two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, and an HDMI port. You also get a 4-in-1 SD card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
