Deal | Lenovo IdeaPad S340 is the cheapest Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 laptop you can buy right now at just $450
The Intel Core i7-1065G7 made its debut on the Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 last September when it retailed for $1800 USD. Now, this same processor can be found on much cheaper laptops including the entry-level Lenovo IdeaPad S340 for just a fraction of the price. Office Depot is currently running a sale on the Core i7 Lenovo for just $450 down from the original price of $780.
The deal is notable because the Core i7-1065G7 is Intel's latest 10 nm processor with the fastest integrated graphics solution to date from the chipmaker. It's a lot of CPU and GPU horsepower relative to the sale price since most laptops under $500 are usually equipped with older generation processors or slower Core i3/i5 variants instead.
Keep in mind that two SKUs of the Core i7-1065G7 exist (15 W and 25 W) and the product listing makes no mention of which one the IdeaPad S340 uses. We suspect that the system is utilizing the slower 15 W version of the chip.
Outside of CPU, owners will also get a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256 GB SSD.
We recommend checking out our review on an older version of the IdeaPad S340 since the chassis is the same. The entry-level IdeaPad S340 sits below the mid-range IdeaPad S540 and higher-end IdeaPad S740 in Lenovo's tiered portfolio.
