I am looking into buying either an Ideapad 720s or a 530s, but I have come across many posts complaining about loud, high pitched fan noise. Is this an issue that is found in each laptop, or is it the luck of the draw, and some have it, while others do not. Also, it appears that the issue is still ongoing, correct?
Thank you for.

Hey there, BShaps!
Welcome to the Lenovo Community group!
Thank you for showing an interest in buying a Lenovo IdeaPad 720s or the IdeaPad 530s. The fan noise concern for the two laptops are a case to case basis, and there are lots of factors that you need to consider. It the CPU needs to cool itself, chances are the fan will run extremely to cope up with the CPU. Also, there is a BIOS firmware that can fix the fan loud noise or high pitch concern.

This is NOT easily fixed via a bios update. I’m in my second 720s now. Both have had the same issue, fans ramp up with a high pitched noise. Just browsing windows. Even now, with the laptop just charging in my table. The fans ramp up to maximum every 3 or 4 seconds.
