Lenovo’s IdeaPad 710S Plus is a solid ultraportable that provides more bang for your buck than most mainstream laptops.

The configuration on sale packs a 13.3-inch 1080p IPS multi-touch LCD, 2.7GHz Core i7-7500U processor, 16GB of RAM, and a generous 1TB PCIe SSD. Even though this system packs a previous-gen Intel CPU, to get both a 1TB SSD and 16GB of RAM in a sub $900 laptop is pretty rare.

Connectivity-wise, you get USB 2.0, an SD memory card reader, dual USB 3.0 ports (Type-C and Type-A), and a headphone jack. There’s also a fingerprint reader underneath the bottom right corner of the island-style keyboard.

Displays can make or break a system, but fortunately the 710S’ panel is top-notch producing 121 percent of the sRGB spectrum, which beats the 96-percent ultraportable average. Battery life is somewhat short at just over 7 hours, so you’ll definitely want to pack that power adapter — a small compromise for an otherwise excellent all-rounder.
