Lenovo's Product Specifications Reference site mentions quite a few 14-inch and 15-inch IdeaPad 1 SKUs that feature either an AMD Athlon Silver 7120U / Athlon Gold 7220U dual-core processor or a Ryzen 3 7320U / Ryzen 5 7520U quad-core APU. The Athlon models are limited to 8 GB of soldered LPDDR5-5500 RAM and 128 GB PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD storage, while the Ryzen ones can get up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB storage.


TN panels, 720p screen resolution... Damn... They need to improve the minimum standards...

An avg. American spends 7 hours 4 minutes in front of a screen every day, of which 4-6 hrs happen on their iPad or iPhone (Statista). TVs rather than computers are used for media viewing and entertainment (3 hours avg. viewing time, Statista).
So it doesn't matter if viewing angles are inferior on their PC; or if pixel density is much less; or if color deviations are more pronounced. That screen is not going to be used for more than a couple hours of work (and maybe an occasional catching up with a Netflix show).
Because of that, entry-level PCs, as well as K12 and business devices, will continue to employ TN panels in foreseeable future.


Interesting stats.

However even for those whom that is the case, it can still be one of the most noticeable differences to be made for the time you do use the computer. It's also great that less-terrible displays have become more commonplace and (presumably) cheaper from a bill-of-materials standpoint.

That, and keyboard+trackpad quality.
