Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 720-12IKB-81B5003QUS

84% Lenovo Yoga 720 12″ review: A small laptop that’s lightweight and capable
Source: Techaeris English
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.

70% Lenovo Yoga 720 (12.5-Inch) Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
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.

90% Lenovo Yoga 720 (12”) Review: The Best for Less
Source: Gotta Be Mobile English
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.

Intel 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.
7100U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.4 GHz (no Turbo Boost), HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.5":

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.
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.


76.8%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
