Lenovo IdeaPad 720S-13ARR (81BR0008UK) is a new laptop from the year 2018 that integrates an AMD Ryzen CPU and is suitable for home and office tasks. The Ryzen 5 2500U is the equivalent of an i5 or i from the 8th generation in terms of performance.
The laptop has a good price. The processor is mounted on socket AM4 an the integrated graphics chip is an AMD Vega 8. So, we can say that it’s better than an i7 and its Intel UHD 630 GPU. From the below image you can see how thin the bezel is and at the end of this article is a clip from what you can see better how the laptop looks like.
The processor powering this device not only looks has good performance but does not take much power because it is a low voltage one. This AMD Ryzen 5 2500U is one with 4 cores and 8 threads. Because of this it has the best performance available.
The screen resolution is 1080p and having a 13.3 inch diagonal it’s more than enough.
For storage it uses a big 256GB Solid State Drive that’s much faster than a HDD or a SSD with only 128GB. Because I talked about storage you should know that on the memory side it has 8GB of RAM type DDR4.
The portability of this IdeaPad 720S is as good as the ones with Intel processors. We’re talking about a weight of 1.5 kg and a battery that lasts up to 8 hours.
The graphics chip is not one with dedicated memory so that the notebook could be used for gaming. The Vega graphics is better than Intel UHD, but still it’s not a discrete graphics.
A laptop such as the Lenovo IdeaPad 720S-13ARR 81BR0008UK is for people interested in an alternative to a tablet that has a better productivity and performance.
How it looks like can be seen from the below preview. The keyboard is like at any Lenovo laptop and the case is very modern. In my opinion, it’s the perfect alternative to an Apple MacBook.
