We've previously seen the 14 and 15-inch versions of the Lenovo IdeaPad S540 at MWC earlier this year. There's also a GTX 1650-powered IdeaPad S540 as well for those who need the extra graphics horsepower. Now, at IFA 2019, Lenovo has announced a 13.3-inch variant of the IdeaPad S540. The new IdeaPad S540 comes with a QHD display and a choice of Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-U and AMD Ryzen Zen+ APUs. 

The IdeaPad S540 is clearly a step-up from the IdeaPad S340 13-inch in terms of features. The notebook weighs in at just 1.25 kg and comes in Ice Blue, Light Silver, and Frost White color options. The 13.3-inch QHD IPS display sports thin bezels and offers a 72% NTSC color gamut with a peak brightness of 300 nits in a 16:10 aspect ratio.

On the Intel side of things, you get CPU options starting from the Core i3-10110U to the Core i7-10710U with GPU options up to the NVIDIA GeForce MX250. The Intel version also offers the choice of a 2x2 wireless-AX Wi-Fi 6 card. Those looking at an AMD APU option can choose between the Ryzen 5 3500U with Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics and the Ryzen 7 3700U with Radeon RX Vega 10. Both variants offer RAM options up to 16 GB and PCIe NVMe M.2 storage options up to 1 TB.

Other common features include an IR camera for Windows Hello login, and optional 2x2 wireless-AC with Bluetooth 5.0. Ports include two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, one USB 3.1 Gen1, and a combo audio jack. There is no SD/microsD card slot in either model. The Intel version offers a 56.5 Wh battery with rapid charge while the AMD version offers a 56 Wh battery without fast charging. 

The Lenovo IdeaPad S540 13-inch starts at €799.00 including VAT and is expected to be available from October 2019.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
