What you see in the image below is the Lenovo IdeaPad 720S , a notebook is not official yet but already present in the lists of some shop online Americans who – in addition to provide rates and availability – give us an idea about its technical characteristics. The model IdeaPad 720S-14IKB will be on the market by the end of June at a price that will depend on the SKU option, but that should be about $ 1,000 for the base model and $ 1,300 for the most equipped. For now we have no information about availability in Europe, and especially in Italy, but we are certain that we will know more later this month at Computex 2017.
Lenovo IdeaPad 14IKB-720S has a notebook display with IPS 14-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) , processor Intel Core i5-7200U from 2.5GHz or Core i7-7500U to 2.7GHz, 8 / 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 256 / 512GB of storage on an SSD PCIe NVMe state, backlit keyboard, JBL speakers, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and 8 hours of autonomy with a 56Wh battery . On board, there is also a port USB Type-C / 3 Thunderbolt , two USB 3.0, HDMI, audio jack, microSD card reader and sensor for reading fingerprints to be used in combination with Windows Hello. Everything is managed by Signature Edition Windows 10 and a fan that will check the internal temperatures to prevent overheating.
The special feature of the 14-inch around the screen, which enables the company China’s IdeaPad series 720S is the absence of frames to mount a panel in a typical frame of a 13-inch notebook. Not surprisingly, the laptop is also among the most compact and lightest in its class with 15.2 millimeters thick and weighing 1.6Kg.
Unlike other similar notebooks (and we immediately think of the Dell XPS 13), Lenovo IdeaPad 720 is unusual for a "small size" model that integrates a dedicated graphics chip and a 720p webcam well positioned above the screen despite ultraslim edge . The GPU Nvidia GeForce 940MX belongs to an old generation, but should provide more power subsystem of the integrated Intel HD, in addition to being less expensive versions of the homologous series of the GeForce GTX10.
