Model: A budget-convertible from Lenovo, this is how I would define this model. This 13.3 inch device has a very good look. I know it since I use one for the work. It has a very good 1080p IPS touchscreen. It has enough brightness for indoors but during outdoor usage, you might have some issue reading what’s on the screen. The case is very appealing I have to say. At first glance, you are like “I must have it”. But I have to say I have questioned the choice of presenting this model as a convertible. It has a nice tent mode, sure, pretty useful. But tablet mode is really questionable. You are holding a bulky 13.3-inch tablet that weighs around 1.2 kg. It just feels like it is not worth to have. After a while, it gets heavier and heavier in your hands and you just want to lay it down. It is nice to present something to someone on the go, but, in my opinion, tablet mode is not the real intended use scenario for this device. Having said that, the touchscreen provides a good usability, especially during meetings combined with a pen, it is great for taking notes.

A powerful Core i5-7200U processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD give you enough system power to tackle down complex software. Office work is too easy to handle with this laptop. You can even do some graphics work, but video editing might be the point where you start having issues due to not having a discrete graphics card.

Now looking at the connectivity options, I did really wish there was an HDMI output. But instead you get a Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connection, which of course is better for the future. Still as an avid office user who needs to make tons of presentations, I would be glad to have at least an adaptor out of the box.

I also need to mention multimedia and game performance. This SKU performs very well during multimedia usage. You can play all the media files you want, even 4K, but it will be reduced down to 1080p due to screen resolution. Keep in mind there is also a 4K SKU that you can buy of course. According to benchmarks that you can find online, even if it mean low fps, you can play games like GTA 5. That really is something. Another thing to say is that the screen bezel is pretty large. This is intended for tablet use where you can place your fingers. But while watching movies, it means you get extra black lines and a narrower view point. You get used to it though, so it is not a very big issue. The only issue you might face is the reflections on the screen. They might disturb you while watching a movie.

One thing I like about this device is the battery life. You can get up to 14 hours. If you use it heavily, expect to have about 7 to 8 hours which is enough for a full work day.

If you need something like the Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB for video editing, you can get 15-inch models. There are some SKUs even with quad-core i7-7700HQ and GTX 1050. Of course, with such powerful components don’t expect too much from battery.

Would I recommend this device? I can’t decide. Because while I really like it, I am not sure if it is worth the investment. As I mentioned earlier, tablet mode is not as useful as it is supposed to be. It kinda feels like it is a luxury. On the other hand, it is reasonably priced, starting from 829$ (may differ in different markets). It is good for office usage, but to make a purchase decision, you need to make sure what you need. An Ultrabook or a convertible? If you like the idea of having a heavy 13.3-inch tablet, go for it. But if you want something lighter, there are Asus Transformer 4 Pro models with slightly smaller screen for a similar price.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
