Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad 730S-13IWL 81JB0004US

89.2% Lenovo IdeaPad 730S-13IWL (i5-8265U, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Lenovo’s IdeaPad 730S design shrinks the popular ultraportable even further, but thanks to a quad-core Core i5-8265U, 8 GB RAM, and NVMe SSD, it promises blazing general performance nonetheless. At $870, how does it fare in what has become a deeply competitive market?
92% Lenovo IdeaPad 730S review: A thin, elegant ultrabook with decent performance
Source: Techaeris English
The Lenovo IdeaPad 730S ultrabook is definitely a thin and elegant ultrabook which isn’t too hard on the wallet. With a fairly decent screen and o.k. battery life, this ultrabook should get you through the better part of the day. With a Rapid Charge feature, plugging in when you can for an hour or so should get you another 4 or 5 hours depending on your usage.

Lenovo Ideapad 730S review – Lenovo’s thinnest laptop yet
Source: Laptop Media English
Definitely an interesting laptop from Lenovo. As it is interesting, it is not for everybody. If you want a device that is going to serve you as a long-lasting companion, or you need it for the university, meeting rooms or somewhere where you need to be quiet – well, that’s not the laptop for you. With its 11.9 mm thickness it is a brilliant piece of technology and looks stunning, but be sure that this little fan is going to kick in at any time. Even when copying files and especially, when updating your favorite Windows.

Lenovo IdeaPad 730S review: A slick laptop with no gimmicks
Source: Good Gear Guide English
It’s always nice to see a laptop that knows what it’s trying to accomplish. Instead of attempting to be all things to all people, the Lenovo IdeaPad 730S is content to be a solid thin-and-light laptop with a strong sense of style. It’s ideal for people who want to perform office or other productivity tasks from anywhere, and don’t aspire to use their laptop like a tablet or turn it into a gaming rig. As long as the Wi-Fi issue I experienced doesn’t prove widespread—or gets patched in the near future—this laptop succeeds at cutting away the cruft.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


85.3%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
