Lenovo is refreshing its IdeaPad and Legion gaming laptop line today, along with the announcement of a new Flex 2-in-1. Three new IdeaPads are being released this June — the 720S, 320S, and the 320. They stand out more than anything else because they’re being released in real, non-generic laptop colors. They’ll probably appeal to college kids. I embedded a photo of the purple 15-inch 320 IdeaPad above, but it’s also available in a red, white, silver, blue, and black. The 15-inch 320 starts at $439.99 while the 17-inch starts at $489.99. It can include up to a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to 2TB of HDD storage with 16GB of memory.
The most expensive of the IdeaPads announced today is the 14-inch 720S. The S stands for slim, by the way. It starts at $969.99 and can include up to a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 512GB of storage, 16GB of memory, a Full HD (1920×1080) non-touch screen, and USB-C with Thunderbolt. It also weighs less than three and a half pounds. Unfortunately, that laptop only comes in a lame silver or gold, which is unfortunate for anyone who likes fun. The keyboard design looks nice, however, and simple.
As I mentioned, Lenovo’s also releasing another gaming laptop in its Legion line. The Y920 is VR-ready, includes a 17-inch, Full HD (1920×1080) display, a Nvidia GTX 1070 GPU, 16GB of memory, 512GB of storage, a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, and a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting. It starts at $2,699.99.
Finally, Lenovo also has a new 2-in-1. The Flex 5 starts at $719.99 and can include up to a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB of storage, and, depending on the size, an Ultra HD (3840×2160) IPS display with pen support. All these devices run Windows 10. The laptops will be available in June while the Flex goes on sale some time this month.
