Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB-80VV002JGE
Lenovo's Miix 720 gets you more for your money compared to the Microsoft's 2017 Surface Pro, but don't plan on getting through a workday on its battery alone.

At the end of the day, the Lenovo Miix 720 is one of the best Surface Pro 4 clones. If you’re looking to save some money and pick up a device which is like the Surface Pro 4, while not breaking the bank, you should definitely pick up the Miix 720. You’ll enjoy a beautiful display, future proof USB C technology, a great pen and average keyboard, and amazing performance. You can purchase the unit as I had it configured for $1269.99, or you can explore other configurations, including a $1,158 unit within the Intel Core i5-7200U CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256GB SSD.

Are the Miix 720's other virtues enough to offset its merely fair unplugged endurance? The Editors' Choice box at the beginning of this review gave our opinion away. Battery life aside, the 720 is a premium tablet 2-in-1 at a non-premium price. Its screen and keyboard are first-class; its kickstand and magnetic keyboard cover work elegantly; and its build quality is topnotch. Here's hoping Lenovo.com restocks soon.

With specifications that match the Surface Pro, the Miix 720 is a powerful computer in a highly mobile form factor that offers an excellent balance of price, power and performance. The excellent keyboard cover and active stylus are both included in the price of the tablet, and the Miix 720 promises to deliver similar Surface Pro-level performance.

The Surface Pro features a better keyboard and more speed, but at $1,758 for a configuration similar to that of the Mixx, it is much more expensive. But if you can adapt to the Miix 720's keyboard and take the charger with you, this is quite a capable 2-in-1.

There’s no doubt that the Lenovo Miix 720 is an impressive Surface Pro 4 rival. It might be a bit more expensive but includes the keyboard and has the latest specs including faster DDR4 memory and Intel’s new 7th-gen Kaby Lake processor. We’d like to know what the base price gets you and there’s also the complication of the upcoming Surface Pro 5.

The tablet itself won't be available to buy until the beginning of April 2017, though, which may just be enough time for Microsoft to launch its anticipated Surface Pro 5.

There is one big question, though: Will it arrive in time to swipe sales from a Surface Pro 5? Currently, the Miix 720 isn't slated to arrive until the beginning of April. The Active Pen 2, however, will be available in February for $60, or roughly AU$85 and £50 in Australia and the UK, respectively.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
