Lenovo Ideapad 720S-15IKB (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q, SSD 512 GB) Laptop Review

 

Multimedia oddball. Lenovo has outfitted the first 15-inch laptop in its 700 series with exotic hardware, including an i7-7700HQ with a TDP reduced to 35 watts and a 1050 Ti Max-Q. The contender has a lot to offer—a great display, long battery life—but...

premium case and design ; useful input devices ; system performance ; consistent performance under load

unusually slow Wi-Fi performance ; poor heat distribution

The Lenovo IdeaPad 720-15IKB joins the ranks of other 15-inch multimedia notebooks. Lenovo has tried to garner interest in the device by using a mostly aluminum case to give the IdeaPad 720 a solid appearance. All our comparison devices have plastic...

Lenovo Ideapad 720-15IKB review

  (Rating Hidden)

Lenovo pitches the Ideapad 720-15IKB as a high-end laptop that will meet your professional and gaming needs. On paper it seems that their claim has some substance, with a seventh generation Intel i7 processor and a dedicated graphics card, we're...
