What you should know from the beginning is that this notebook is a thin-and-light option built on Intel bộ vi xử lý core U hardware and entry-level Nvidia dedicated graphics. That makes it capable of handling everyday tasks smoothly và most games at FHD resolution with Medium-High details, but it’s definitely not as fast as some of the beefier laptops you can get at this price point. It is however compact & portable, weighing about 3.3 lbs in the reviewed configuration and packing a 14-inch screen inside the body toàn thân of a 13-inch laptop. It also doesn’t skim on the build quality, the keyboard, the IO or the battery, so overall there are very few compromises you’ll have to accept for the sake of portability.

Among those are the high case temperatures và noisy fans in demanding loads, a glossy non-touch display and a rather slow wireless out-of-the-box. More about these & all the other aspects of the Lenovo IdeaPad 720s in the in-depth article below.

Design và first look

This máy vi tính is very well made and you’ll immediately acknowledge that from the moment you get it out of the box. It just feels strong, with not flex or give in the lid cover and only a tiny amount in the keyboard deck, as it’s still not an unibody construction and gets a plastic inner chassis. But even so, I feel it can can stand next to the best of the best in terms of build quality.

As far as competition goes, the hãng asus Zenbook UX410UQ is the closest rival available right now, but this one doesn’t sell worldwide. It’s available in Europe & gets a proper matte screen, but on the other hand there’s a smaller battery inside & no Thunderbolt 3 port. More details in our in-depth review. There’s also the more expensive and more portable Zenbook UX430UQ to consider, but both of these only get Nvidia 940MX chips with GDDR3 memory, so are about 15-20% slower in games.

If you don’t need the dedicated graphics there area a few other well priced compact 14-inchers you should kiểm tra out, lượt thích the Acer Swift 3 or the asus Pro B9440. But if graphics performance is crucial, I’ll once again stress that you should turn your attention towards devices lượt thích the asus Zenbook UX430UN, Acer Swift 3 2nd gen và other ultraportables with Nvidia MX150 graphics.

All in all, Lenovo did a great job here with the IdeaPad 720s. If you need a sturdily built máy tính xách tay with very few compromises, good everyday performance and the ability khổng lồ tackle games better than most thin-and-lights, this should be on the map. Just make sure you’re fine with the glossy display & preferably replace that Wi-Fi chip to get better wireless performance.
