August is a pretty bittersweet month for many. The leaves start to lose a bit of their green, the nights grow a bit crisper, and to many kids’ dismay, school’s right around the corner. That being said, it’s not all frowny faces though; laptop manufacturers couldn’t be more ecstatic. Beginning in August, companies like Dell, Sony, and HP begin suffocating the general populace with their ‘back to school’ marketing campaign. Lenovo, however, seems to have jumped the gun on this one, offering us a look at what we can expect to see across college campuses this fall.
The company has provided a spiffy new makeover to its IdeaPad range of 14,15, and 17 inch laptops. These guys have been resigned to deliver strong performance with a slimmer and sleeker design. The laptops will be begin at $440 for the 15 inch IdeaPad 320 and go up to $970 for the 14 inch IdeaPad 720.
If you’re looking to spend an extra bit of cash, Lenovo is offering the new Flex 5 models at 14 and 15 inches. These guys come equipped with Windows 10 and NVIDIA GeForce GT940MX graphics and 2GBs of DDR5. Some optional features for the Flex 5 include a 4K dispaly and active pen support. These laptops will set you back $720 for the smaller screen, and $830 for the larger of the two models.
If you can only be bothered with ‘top of the line’, you’ll want to take a look at Lenovo’s top shelf Legion Y920for $2700. This baby’s a 17 inch virtual reality ready behemoth available with *GBs of DDR5, a 17.3 inch display and a backlit mechanical keyboard. The Legion and IdeaPad will be available for purchase this June with the Flex model to be up for sale at some point this month.
