The All-New IdeaPads


Lenovo has released a new family of six IdeaPads – the 720, 520, and 320 and IdeaPad 720S, 520S and 320S with the S standing for slim.

They look rather nice. The IdeaPad 720Sis made of an anodized aluminium casing that’s treated with the same technique used to shape and polish diamonds, Levono says.

Its trim cousin, the IdeaPad 520S is only 19.3mm thin (0.76 in), and the IdeaPad 320S includes an infused cover for a soft metallic touch.

The redesign efforts extends to the IdeaPads’ interiors. From the redesigned keyboard layout, improved shift key and narrower bezels for optimised screen displays to the decision to incorporate  Microsoft’s Precision Touchpad for direct connection to Windows 10, owners of the IdeaPad are in for a noticeably improved user experience.

The IdeaPad 720S, has up to the latest 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Thunderbolt 3 port and up to 1TB PCIe SSD and weighs only 1.14 kg (2.5 lbs) and 13.6mm (0.53 in) thin on the 13-inch model.

The 20S also includes features like an optional fingerprint reader for swift, secure PC log-in with Windows Hello and up to UHD display (on the 13-inch non-touchscreen model). Its always-on charging feature lets users charge other devices via a USB port even when the laptop is powered off.

The IdeaPad 520 or 520S, can have Seventh Gen Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphic. There is also an optional backlit keyboard and optional fingerprint reader and Windows Hello support.

At the budget level there is the affordable IdeaPad 320 or, for more portability, its thinner sibling, the IdeaPad 320S. The choices for the IdeaPad 320 from Denim Blue to Plum Purple, with matching lighter tones inside that sport a new one-piece touchpad.

For gamers, there is the top-of-the-line Lenovo Legion Y920 Laptop – a powerful, VR-ready 17-inch pro-level gaming rig. Packed with up to Intel’s latest overclockable 7th Gen Intel Core i7 K series processor, up to Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 8G DDR5 graphics, and mechanical backlit RGB keyboard with lighting effects.
