Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad S940-14IWL

85% Lenovo IdeaPad S940 Laptop Review: Slimmer, Lighter, Sleeker | Notebookcheck
The quest for the sleekest and most portable laptop continues unabated with Lenovo’s IdeaPad S940, easily one of the most attractive machines we’ve seen to date. With a dazzling 4K HDR display, Dolby Atmos audio, a Core i7 CPU, and a tiny footprint, is this $2,000 work of art the one to beat?
Lenovo Ideapad S940 review – one of the prettiest ultrabooks on the market
Source: Laptop Media English
With the way it feels during handling and working with it, the Ideapad S940 is one of the best devices out there. Its sandblasted aluminum body and the astonishing screen to body ratio makes it stand out. Additionally, there is a small detail that makes the notebook look even more premium – the smartphone-like curved glass at the sides.

95% Lenovo IdeaPad S940 review: It's the clamshell you've been waiting for
Source: Neowin English
To put it simply, the Lenovo IdeaPad S940 is a lovely device. Like I said in the very beginning, when you turn it on, it returns the favor. It definitely has one of the most stunning and beautiful displays that I've ever seen. It actually first caught my eye at CES. Lenovo had announced the Yoga S940 and the Yoga C730, the latter of which offered a 4K OLED display. I walked in expecting to be impressed by the C730, and then the S940 blew me away.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

14":

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.

1.236 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
