The Lenovo Yoga 720 12″ is a lightweight yet capable laptop that makes computing on the go very easy. The Intel i3 processor is able to handle some more than one program at a time, and the screen looks great. This is probably not the laptop you will want to use if you are into heavy video or photo editing, but for every day use it should have no problem handling anything you can throw at it.

Six hundred and fifty dollars isn't a bad deal, either, for a compact convertible that you can toss into your briefcase or carry with one hand. The Yoga's screen is so good that you won't miss its missing eight-tenths of an inch compared to 13.3-inch 2-in-1's, and overall it ably fills a niche. It's a small niche, however—we suspect most buyers would just as well spend the extra $150 to get the Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD as well as the slightly larger display of the next-size-up Yoga 720.

A solid mid-range PC doesn’t need every feature more expensive PCs have. It needs the features and hardware that make the most impact. That the delicate balance that Lenovo manages with the Lenovo Yoga 720 (12”).

The 12-inch Lenovo Yoga 720 is a useful convertible, thanks to its Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU, its 7th-generation Core i3 CPU and a battery that lasts longer than 7 hours.
