Lenovo refreshes the IdeaPad and Legion laptops - NoypiGeeks

Lenovo has updated two of their notebook line-up: the IdeaPad and the Legion. The refreshed version of the two reassures the company’s presence in the laptop market. Meet the new Lenovo IdeaPad 320, 320s, 720s, and the Legion Y920.

To start, it is said that Lenovo will be releasing a trio of new notebooks under the IdeaPad line. The new laptops will be called the 720s, 320s, and 320. To literally entice its target market, the IdeaPads will be available with a splash of funky colors – Purple, Red, Blue, and other generic colors like White, Silver, and Black.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 320 is meant for the budget-conscious consumers. It will be equipped with an Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake processor with Integrated Graphics, plus Lenovo is also throwing in a generous 16GB of RAM and 2TB of HDD storage.

The IdeaPad 320 will be available for a starting price of $439.99 (1366 x 768 resolution) for the 15-inch variant while the 17-inch (1600 x 900 resolution) starts at $489.99.

On the other hand, both the 720s and 320s will be available at a premium price. The “S” probably stands for “slim”, so it’s expected to be more expensive because it has that prestige title attached to the notebook.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 320s will have a faster 256GB SSD and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. It will have Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake processors, backlit keyboards, and Windows Precision touchpads. The 320s will retail for a starting price of $739.99 for the 14-inch while the 15-inch will start at $749.99. Both variants will sport a panel with 1080p resolution.

Going to the most premium of them all, the Lenovo IdeaPad 720s will only be available on one screen size. It will have a 14-inch full HD 1080p display. It’s powered by an Intel Kaby Lake processor, a NVIDIA GT940MX, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage.

To make things more interesting, the 720s boasts an aluminum and magnesium body, rather than the 320’s plastic build. It will also have an optional fingerprint scanner with Windows Hello support. The IdeaPad 720s will start at $969.99.

And on the gaming side, Lenovo is also releasing the new Legion Y920. Unlike the new IdeaPads stated earlier, the Y920 packs a more serious hardware.

The Lenovo Legion Y920 will rock an overclockable 7th-Gen processor from Intel. This new monster from Lenovo will also feature a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, which makes the whole system VR-ready. And to make sure the visuals is more seamless, there’s a 1920 x 1080 IPS display with G-Sync support. The G-Sync support can also be carried to any compatible remote thanks to its DisplayPort output.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a real gaming PC without the backlit RGB keyboard and an aggressive gaming look. The Legion Y920 will have a starting price of USD2,699.99.
