In a price category inundated with slow Atoms, Core i3, and Ryzen 3 laptops, the IdeaPad S340 stands out from the crowd with its 10 nm Core i7-1065G7 that's barely half a year old. Intel's latest 10 nm Core i7 CPU can now be found on even the cheapest of models.
Allen Ngo,

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.

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.
