Lenovo Air 13 Pro launching as the IdeaPad 710S Plus in Europe
When Xiaomi revealed the Mi Air notebook back in July, Lenovo was one of the first to counter with its own IdeaPad Air 13 Pro announcement mere days later. The Lenovo model is unsurprisingly similar to the Mi Air in terms of features and specifications.
Lenovo's new notebook will be launching in Germany and other parts of Europe with a different name, however, as the original Air 13 Pro name will likely remain exclusive to Asia. Accordingly, the notebook will be launching overseas as the IdeaPad 710S Plus due to its similarities to the existing IdeaPad 710S that launched earlier this year. The updated IdeaPad 710S Plus will be equipped with Kaby Lake processor options instead of Skylake.
Only two SKUs will be available when the IdeaPad 710S Plus launches next month. One will ship with a Core i5-7200U CPU and a 256 GB PCIe SSD for 950 Euros while the other will have a Core i7-7500U, 512 GB PCIe SSD, and a dedicated GeForce 940MX GPU for 1150 Euros. Lenovo is expected to announce a host of new notebooks during CES 2017 in Las Vegas early next month.
