Lenovo ideapad 710s 13.3" Laptop with Intel Core i7-6560U 2.20GHz Processor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JinhoLeno from Mostly Good, Battery Fluctuates with use I have the base model (i5, 8gb ram, 128gb ssd). The model comes with only 90gb available. There aren't a lot of bloatware but some Lenovo programs can be removed. The performance is good. i5 processor is enough for most tasks, but if you're doing a lot of video editing and do 4k edits, I would recommend going up to the i7 model. The SSD is also slow in write speed, only about 120-140mb/s compared to competitor laptops which can get upwards of 450-500mb/s. The read speed, however, is good at 450-500mb/s. Again, if you're a serious video editor, I would recommend maybe replacing the SSD and/or using external drives for better write speeds. The screen is IPS and has good color quality, which is a plus for artists or designers on the move. Color is more accurate than most competitors despite being a matte display, which is a plus. The Intel HD 520 chip can run low-end games like League of Legends or World of Warcraft on low settings, but no modern games. If you plan on doing some gaming, upgrading to the Intel Iris 540 would be a better option. Still not a gaming graphics chip, but better than 520. The battery life fluctuates a lot. If you're doing demanding tasks like gaming or editing, expect battery life to last only 2-3 hours at most. I personally only use the laptop mainly for writing documents and school related work. With the brightness at around 50%, power saving on, and using only Word, I get anywhere around 9-12 hours. With mixed usage of work and internet browsing at 50% brightness, you can expect around 7 hours with power saver and 5 hours without. So if you're going on a 12 hour flight, the laptop will probably not last a good portion of it. Standby time in sleep/hibernate isn't as great as some competitors. After a night in sleep/hibernate mode, the battery drops by 10-15%. 46wh battery is the standard average for ultrabooks, and I wish they would have used a bigger battery. Some people have cited issues waking up from sleep. I have yet to experience such an issue so Lenovo may have fixed it prior to shipping my model. The laptop will go into hibernation if it is left in sleep for a certain amount of time so when that happens, just press the power button for about 1 second like you would when turning it on, and it'll come back to the desktop you left it in. If it's not waking up at all, it might be a graphics driver issue. Be sure to update your drivers. If not that, you might have to change your sleep or hibernation settings until Lenovo or Windows solves the issue with a software update. If it's a hardware issue, ask for a replacement. The design of the laptop is premium and the outer aluminum/magnesium finish feels very nice. However, this makes the laptop incredibly scratch-prone. I would definitely not recommend ever putting this laptop into your bag with all your other stuff (including the charger) without some sort of sleeve or cover. The dimensions of the laptop is smaller than a typical 13.3 laptop due to its thin side bezels, so a 12.5 or 13" laptop sleeve may be a more snug fit than the standard 13.3 sleeve. The keyboard is amazing on this laptop. Lenovo probably has one of the best keyboards for Windows computers. The key travel is good and very comfortable to type on. If you type a lot, then this would be a plus. The right shift key is smaller due to its unorthodox placement, but if you're like me who only uses the left shift key, this won't be a problem. If you only use the right shift key, it'll take some time to get used to. The WIFI chip doesn't always get the fastest speed. It'll often get 30-40mb/s slower than my other computers despite being on the same WIFI. If you get around 10-40mb/s regularly, then the laptop shouldn't have any issue, but if you normally get 100-150mb/s, then expect some drop. The laptop doesn't get hot for day to day activities, but it does get warm from even using the internet. Nothing uncomfortable, but noticeable. The fan is quick to kick in and is audible. If you're in a loud room, it won't matter. But if you're in a very silent library, you'll be able to hear it. With the microphone directly on the vent, the noise level was 40db. From hearing distance, it was around 20db. Room noise level was 13-15 db when testing this. Overall, Pros: Premium design, comfortable keyboard, lightweight, great IPS display, price, Intel i core processors Cons: Weak battery, odd right shift placement, slow SSD, slow WIFI, possible sleep/hibernation issues There are laptops out there with better specs at cheaper prices, but I would recommend this laptop as it is one of the better looking, more premium ultrabooks at Intel i-core processor level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tlaz from Bought it for daughter - Jealous! Got this for my daughter who's in middle school, and she loves it. Fast and super thin/light. Small bezel is great, battery life is very good, and it does everything it's supposed to. The mouse is really good - smooth and accurate, unlike many windows laptops I've used in the past. The location of the shift key on the right side of the keyboard is awkward - you have to get used to it being much farther right that on a typical keyboard, but that's a minor issue in an otherwise great laptop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KIsraeli from Moderate Performance with Significant Overheating The system frequently reaches a temporary state of unresponsiveness after 10-15 minutes of simply browsing the internet or watching a movie on Netflix, at which time it overheats and the disruptive sounds produced by the fan(s) may be heard. The screen is awesome and graphics are great, but the overheating and audible fan sounds in addition to deficits in performance and freezing are discouraging elements of the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KC01 from Fast processor and great features I bought this for my Granddaughter for graduation. She will use it as she continues to college. It has a fast processor and fast internet which should make research and report writing easier. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by UserOne from I am happy with my Ideapad 710s I have owned Ideapad 701s now for some four months and I am quiet satisfied with it. I have noticed that some reviewers complain about keyboard layout - this has not been a problem for me. My ideapad is quick to start, response time is great and colours on the screen are great. Sound is not bad bud not great either - but hey - I did not buy it because of acoustics. I can recomend Ideapad to anyone. It has served me well and I hope it will continue to do so. I mainly use it for Word and Excel work and surfing the internet and streaming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UnleasheD from An ultra-portable laptop with only a few problems I bought this for this upcoming school year and was debating between this and a few other laptops. Looking at this, it is very light and feels comfortable in my backpack; it has quite a strong CPU, I have the Core i7-6560u, and it allows me to play some lightweight games. It is efficient and convenient. The screen is decent and the keyboard is comfortable. It is a back-lit keyboard and is a very nice keyboard to use. (This is from someone who prefers mechanical keyboards.) The laptop is also able to rotate 180, not a full 360 but it is pretty cool. On the other hand, when I first got this laptop, I was forced to use it for a while and then had to system restore as it would occasionally freeze, glitch, and cause browser to crash. This was frustrating until the system restore which has improved its interface. It's cooling system is quite unfortunate as the bottom is EXTREMELY hot. It can be difficult for me just to put the laptop on my lap as it would be burning to the touch. This can cause the laptop's keyboard, near the number keys, to warm up. Talking about the keyboard, it can be kind of "flimsy". Otherwise than that, it is honestly a pretty good computer that will allow me to do things more than just schoolwork.
