Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 720-12IKB
Versatile with limited stamina. Lenovo's new compact device gets a nice aluminum case and versatile 360-degree hinges, but also works well as a conventional office subnotebook. Important advantages such as the screen and the input devices are countered by a small number of drawbacks, and most interested buyers should be fine with them – except one.

The Lenovo Yoga 720 12-inch definitely has its place in the ultra-portables market but not like this. It misses on an essential feature for all convertibles and ultra-portables – a good IPS screen. Given the price point and the Yoga lineup to which it belongs, a panel with suboptimal maximum brightness and limited sRGB is just unacceptable. And when you add the glossy finish of the screen, it becomes barely usable outdoors. Still, the absence of PWM and the high contrast ratio should be noted and taken into account.
