Lenovo IdeaPad 520s-14IKB (Core i5-7200U, 940MX) Laptop Review

 

Successful all-rounder. An affordable Ultrabook with Full HD IPS display, GeForce 940MX, and Core i5-7200U - Lenovo intends this interesting package mainly for students. You can find out in our detailed review whether the IdeaPad 520s can convince us.

good quality case ; comfortable keyboard ; pleasant touchpad ; quiet fan ; much improved battery life ; matte IPS display

CPU cannot keep up the performance level ; warm case during load ; USB C without DisplayPort and power delivery ; 1x1 WLAN

The IdeaPad 520s-14IKB is a good overall package which does many things right, but has weaknesses in some details. However, those weaknesses can be excused to a large extent by the price. First the positive: Compared to the predecessor, the design is...

Lenovo Ideapad 520S-14IKB review

  (Rating Hidden)

A mid-priced laptop in Lenovo's Ideapad range, we'd expect this model to be relatively nippy, thanks to its i5 processor and solid state drive. We've had plenty of Ideapad's through the doors of our test lab over the years, so how will this one do?...

LENOVO IdeaPad 520s 14" Laptop - Mineral Grey

 

It's lovely. It runs perfect and very good value for money.

The brightness. When I use it on maximum it doesn't really look like it's maximum. It could be better than that. Overall it's ok.

Great spec at a great price

 

I chose this laptop as a replacement for a well-known make of high spec laptop. In addition to a sturdy but stylish construction the specification of this laptop outclassed all others.

Maybe I bought the wrong product

 

This machine is good in many respects, but the screen is neither as bright nor as sharp, nor the colours so vibrant as I expected they would be on a machine of this price. Perhaps I was expecting too much or was gullible enough to believe the product...

Light and quick

 

I appreciated the light weight and quick start up of this laptop, The only minor inconvenience I have found is that it does not have 2 USB ports on the same side as I have an external DVD drive which needs two adjacent ports!

Lenovo IdeaPad 520S

 

Really nicely built laptop and looks good. Keyboard feels solid due to metal body. Initially the fan was running a lot but realised that Windows 10 was updating in the background during the first day of use. Had to read instructions to work out that...
