I omitted the fan noise segment during my editing. Here it is!
The laptop comes just a few weeks after the 710s Plus we reviewed last week was released. The 720s is better in a couple of ways. First it has a built in 940MX GPU from Nvidia (unfortunately it doesn’t have the newly announced low end GPU). It also has the improved Lenovo keyboard and trackpad we’ve seen on their other 2017 devices.
