Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 720-12IKB

84.6% Lenovo Yoga 720 12 (i5-7200U, 128 GB) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
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.
Lenovo Yoga 720 (12-inch) review – small but just as powerful and versatile
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

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.

1.18 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.


89.3%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
