Lenovo IdeaPad 710S-13ISK 80SW0031US Notebook Review


Small and affordable. The lowest-end SKU for the Ideapad 710S is actually very fairly priced at $700 USD for anyone in need of a lightweight and portable 13.3-inch notebook with respectable performance and battery life.

bright display backlight; near complete sRGB coverage ; small, lightweight, and attractive design ; aluminum and magnesium build ; relatively easy serviceability ; user-upgradeable M.2 SSD ; quiet system fans ; good battery life ; large touchpad

keyboard keys with soft feedback ; no glossy or touchscreen options ; limited gaming performance ; non-upgradeable RAM ; no USB Type-C ports ; weak display lid

Perhaps the most noticeable advantage of the Ideapad 710S over the Yoga 900, Spectre 13, MacBook Air 13, or XPS 13 is its lower cost. Its base SKU like the one we have here offers a very lightweight and small package due to its narrow bezel for...

Lenovo IdeaPad 710S-13ISK (Core i7) Subnotebook Review


Noble companion. Lenovo did a good job with the new aluminum subnotebook in terms of design. A quick look at the specs suggests decent performance but also reveals the meager port variety. What about the input devices, display, emissions and the runtimes?

light and thin ; sturdy aluminum case with great build quality ; very nice and noble surfaces ; fingerprints not visible ; good keyboard ; bright and high-contrast display with wide viewing angles ; extremely fast SSD ; GPU with eDRAM ; quiet and cool

different models with the same designation ; lid cannot be opened with one hand ; no maintenance hatch ; very meager port selection ; Mini-HDMI ; rather weak WLAN performance ; bad gliding capabilities of the Clickpad ; PWM at 50 % brightness and less...

The compact featherweight Lenovo IdeaPad 710S-13ISK left a great impression during our review and did not really reveal any serious drawbacks. A big part of this impression comes down to the convenient aluminum-magnesium case, because we think it looks...

Lenovo Ideapad 710S review


Thin, lightweight, and powerful, Lenovo's 710S is among the best affordable ultrabooks.

Lenovo ideapad 710S Review: A High-Value Ultrabook


The new Lenovo ideapad 710S features a magnesium-aluminum construction, a near-borderless display, and is one of 2016's best-looking Ultrabooks.

Beautifully thin metal design ; Excellent quality IPS, anti-glare display ; Great battery life ; Quiet cooling fans ; Solid-sounding speakers

Minimal port selection, and no USB-C ; Keyboard layout quibbles ; Top-tier configurations are pricey ; Touch display not offered

We know a good product when we see one, and the Lenovo ideapad 710S certainly qualifies. This well-designed Ultrabook has just about everything going for it, only stumbling in minor areas.

Lenovo ideapad 710S review: A decent performing lightweight ultrabook


The Lenovo ideapad 710S is light, compact, well constructed, and priced right.

Light, solid build. Crisp display with matte finish reduces glare. Decent performance for office and school related tasks. Decent price

Not a fan of the arrow key/smaller right shift button. Would have been nice to see a USB-C port considering that's becoming the new standard

If you're looking for a new laptop that is lightweight, has pretty decent battery life, and good performance for school or the office, you might want to look at the Lenovo ideapad 710S.

Lenovo Ideapad 710S Review – A Killer Budget Laptop for Students


College is a time of compromise — mainly, a compromise between wanting the best and definitely not having that kind of money. Ponying up for a flagship laptop like the Lenovo Yoga 910 might be out of the question, but there are still some nice value...

Attractive and sturdy design with a 180-degree hinge, excellent bright display with good colors and a thin bezel, very good performance for the money, great keyboard, very good speaker system, solid battery life

Lacks a touchscreen, comes with too much bloatware, SSD is on the slow side

Lenovo Ideapad 710S Review and Ratings


A handsome bargain if slim is what you're after, the Ideapad 710S is the incredibly thin and light ultrabook you can actually afford.

Extremely thin and light ; Attractive pricing ; All-metal exterior construction ; Excellent screen, keyboard, and touch pad ; Very good battery life

Minimal ports ; No touch screen ; Low-capacity SSD in base model

All versions of the Ideapad 710S come with Windows 10 Home edition and a one-year parts-and-labor warranty. Beyond the Windows and Lenovo utilities, you won’t find much in the way of third-party software except for a Microsoft Office trial and a few...

Lenovo ideapad 710S review


Meet the latest anti-MacBook Air

Excellent price ; AccuType keyboard ; Slick, simple design

Light on features ; Battery life not quite Air-level

Lenovo has crafted an anti-MacBook Air that actually stands to give it a hearty challenge, and for $100 less to boot.

Lenovo Ideapad 710S 13ISK


The Lenovo 710S is a premium laptop in everything but price. Starting at under £700, and with this higher-end model costing just £799, it offers all the metal build, super-slim frame, quality screen, long battery life and great performance you'd expect...

A fantastic machine at a fantastic price. This is a great option for those seeking a top-notch lightweight laptop without breaking the bank.

Lenovo Ideapad 710S review

  (Rating Hidden)

According to its manufacturer, the Lenovo Ideapad 710S is a 'portable powerhouse'. The 13.3-inch laptop is certainly slim and light, and its specifications suggest super speed. But can it compete against the best ultrabooks on the market? We put it...
