Comment

Model: The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB-80VV005WGE is a convertible laptop for users on the go. This 2-in-1 detachable is stylish and lightweight, combining chic design with a stunning display that will help user breeze through any task. The aluminum tablet makes a stable and valuable impression. The tablet can be placed safely between 100 and 165 degrees. The keyboard is also made of aluminum, which results in a comparatively heavy weight of 404 grams. The advantage is the high strength because even with a cavity underneath, the key surface does not flex during typing. The 12-inch display has a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920 pixels, which is a rare 3: 2 format. Usually the widescreen competitors today use the ratio of 16:10 or 16:9. With its QHD+ configuration, it has six times as many pixels as a standard HD screen. The reflective touch display can provide high brightness and uniform illumination. Viewing angles are not an issue for the Miix 720 with the IPS panel. The view is error-free from any position. Under the hood, the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB-80VV005WGE runs on a power-friendly Intel Core i3-7100U processor and 4 GB of RAM. As for storage, it features a 128 GB solid-state drive. This might not be much, but is enough for basic usage. It has become a norm for most users to have little space on their device and store most medias on an external hard disk drive anyways.

The Miix 720 also has a high-resolution 5-MP webcam in the back. The webcam produces for rather pixelated shots. The camera is probably suitable for Skype Chat, but is definitely not enough to take decent photos which can be posted on social media. The Miix 720 provides a personal, secure way to unlock the device without using a password. Thanks to the front-facing integrated infrared camera and Windows Hello support, the Miix 720 unlocks when it recognizes a user face in front of the screen. Alternately, it auto-locks when the user walks away. It is nice to see more manufacturers making use of the Windows Hello feature. The Lenovo Active Pen 2 complements the Miix 720 as an additional interaction method. Handwriting and notes work well with the pen. The active pen has a battery. Something notable is the fact that the handball can rest on the screen without any errors while writing. The pen holder in the USB port is also quite practical. The keyboard on the Miix 720 has backlighting to highlight each key. It also boasts 1.5 mm of key travel to feel like tapping away on a standard keyboard. Lenovo claims that this delivers satisfying and hopefully more accurate typing experience. And when the user is on the move, the keyboard doubles up as a folio case to protect the screen. The Miix 720 is a very practical device with its portability, good keyboard and an included stylus. It will be suitable for business users on the go.

12":

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.

1.15 kg:

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, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. 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.


87%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
