Lenovo's direct answer to the Xiaomi Mi Air will simply launch as an updated variant of the existing IdePad 710S with Kaby Lake options in tow.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
