    I'm in a bit of a bind right now, since I was looking for laptops for quite some time now, and the 7567 gaming seemed pretty much perfect, except for the TN screen. Now, I just noticed in the last couple of days, that they offer an IPS screen with one model. It's slightly more expensive than the others, but my main questions are: how does it impact battery life? Is it worth it? It costs 1500€ here, and for just 100€ more, I can get a lenovo y720, but I'm not too sure on the battery life of the lenovo, since that's quite important to me.

    The IPS screen is likely the 4K one - battery life on that one will be lower - probably about 5 hours down from 6-7. Maybe more, maybe less. Depends on your usage. The Y720 has a 60Wh battery. Should be good for about 4-5 hours depending on usage.

    I know this isn't the forum for Lenovos, but you seem to be knowledgable on laptops. Is the battery on the Y720 replacable/upgradable? Also, what is your opinion, is it worth it to pay about 100€ more to get the Y720 or should I stick with the 7567?

    As far as I know, all modern laptops, aside from business ones, have internal non-upgradeable batteries. So in the case of the Y720 - you're stuck with the inlcluded 60Wh one. Same way the dell can only use the 74Wh one inside. You MAY be able to replace it if it fails but other than that, it's not ugpradeable. As for the value - 1060 is much faster than the 1050 Ti - it all comes down to whether you need that level of performance. I mean, if you want a decent screen as cheap as possible - the Y520 starts at 800$ and has a low-end IPS which is not that color accurate but at least has okay viewing angles. Though that one has a 3-cell 45Wh battery that is good for about 3-4 hours.

    I've decided to spend roughly 1500€ on a laptop, should run games at medium at decent fps, while also lasting quite a while if I do office work and/or browse internet, meaning battery life is important to me. So I'm deciding between the most expensive Y720 and the most expensive Inspiron 7567. How are the battery times between these two? I know that the IPS screen of the Inspiron takes away a bit of the battery running time, but how much exactly? I can't find any information online. Neither can I find anything about the Y720 battery runtime while idle/browsing/gaming. I was initially going to buy the Inspiron, then the Y720 came out, but there's no reviews out yet and I have to decide by the end of the week.

    Last year's Inspiron 4K edition ran for about 4 hours of web browsing when on battery. THat's 3 hours down from the 1080p screen on that one. The new one may last a bit longer but I'd say maximum 5 hours with lighter browsing. The Y720 will likely hand in similar results if it supports Optimus.

    Is there any ETA of a review of the Y720? I honestly can't find anything online that would help me decide.

    Probably 2-3 weeks or so.

    So would you say the 7567 w/ IPS would have the same battery life as the Y720?

    Maybe, if the Y720 has Optimus. Perhaps slightly more (assuming we're talking about the UHD screen)
