[Lenovo Canada] Lenovo Ideapad 720S 15" i5 7300hq GTX 1050Ti 4GB $999

I got the yoga 720 15" with 7th gen i5 and 1050gtx for $1200 and very happy with it but this one is actually a better deal if you don't need a touchscreen with pen input.
This one is usually at around $1500 so that's a legit $500 off. Their sales are so random lol. Also has thunderbolt 3 which should be future proof if you need an egpu.
And for a device with such a graphic cards, it's very slim and light, not to mention a superb design imo especially in the iron grey.
It's actually slimmer and lighter than my yoga 720 with 1050 gtx which is weird.
I don't know about the reliability with this machine so do your research.

I would say its depends on your purpose, the lenovo one has a more powerful cpu and dGPU (gtx 1050ti worth around 300 on amazon), so it is more suitable for those who play games. While the hp one has a touchscreen and it is convertible, so it is suitable for those who need these features.

GPU on this is a large part of the price difference. Intel 620 vs 1050ti

If my XPS 15 from yesterday for some reason gets cancelled, this seems like a decent deal for sure. I'd argue this borders on hot considering the 1050ti and the form factor. Extra $20 off with a code gets you to $980 for that gpu.

Ok deal. Would of been hotter with 8th Gen KabyR 4 core. Still gave thumbs up though.

GTX 1060 TDP requires better cooling and air flow. Thin ideapad 720S would have at best an annoying high rpm fan to accomodate the higher than allowable TDP the 1060 introduces.
