Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad 510S-14IKB

The Lenovo IdeaPad 510S is the type of PC that doesn’t get a lot of respect. It’s clearly a machine borne out of compromise. We’re all so anxious to spend lots of money on the next must-have notebook or 2-in-1 that looks cool and is so thin that we forget about reasonably priced machines like this. The IdeaPad 510S offers users a mostly solid experience. It does this while starting at only $649 and maxing out at $899.

Despite all it has to offer, the laptop remains highly portable with a weight lesser than an average textbook and a slim design, and brings with it a moderate sub-$700 price tag, depending on configuration. Price starts at $650 USD on Lenovo’s website.

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.
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
