Comet Lake U is here, so OEMs like Lenovo are taking advantage of the opportunity to refresh its compact laptops. The IdeaPad C340, which the Chinese company first announced in February at MWC19, will feature up to the Core i7-10710U and an NVIDIA GeForce MX230, along with a choice of three colours.

Intel has taken the wraps off its Comet Lake U series, with a slew of OEMs following Dell in refreshing their thin and light laptops. We have already seen HP and ASUS doing so, and now Lenovo is bringing Comet Lake U devices to market. Specifically, the Chinese company has posted upgraded hardware for the IdeaPad C340, a device that it only announced earlier this year at MWC19 in Barcelona.

The company posted the new spec sheet on its UK and US websites, although it may have done so slightly to soon, as it has now swiftly reverted both to the versions that it announced at MWC19. Lenovo appears to have only upgraded the processor, with all specifications remaining the same. The refreshed IdeaPad C340 will come with up to an Intel Core i7-10710U processor according to the spec sheet, with @momomo_us also seemingly claiming that the device will come with a choice of four Comet Lake U processors. These are as follows:

Model Cores/Threads Base clock Boost clock - Single core Cache
Core i3-10110U 2/4 2.1 GHz 4.1 GHz 3.7 GHz
Core i5-10210U 4/8 1.6 GHz 4.2 GHz 3.9 GHz
Core i5-10510U 4/8 1.8 GHz 4.9 GHz 4.3 GHz
Core i7-10710U 6/12 1.1 GHz 4.6 GHz 3.8 GHz

The Core i7-10710U and a GeForce MX230 should make for a capable multimedia laptop, although it will be interesting to see how well the IdeaPad C340 can cool these components. There is no word on a release date yet, but it would figure that Lenovo plans to refresh the 15-inch model too.

I got my first smartphone aged 11, my first PC aged 12 and I have been tinkering with electronics ever since. I like to keep abreast of the latest news and technology, which inevitably leads me to switch my laptop and phone every few months. When I'm not writing for Notebookcheck, you will find me seeking out new coffee shops, bars and trying to find some hidden gems in record stores.
