93% Lenovo Yoga 720 15″ review: A powerhouse performing laptop with great looks
Source: Techaeris English
We’ve reviewed a lot of Lenovo laptops and they continue to make improvements every year. The Lenovo Yoga 720 is a worthy choice if you’re wanting a premium built laptop with great performance, a good screen and great user expereince. It is a bit heavy in terms of weight and may be a little heavy for some in terms of price.

80% Lenovo Yoga 720 review: Discrete GTX 1050 graphics is worth the weight
Source: PC World English
If there’s anything threatening mainstream-plus laptops like Lenovo’s Yoga 720, it’s the new generation of ultrabooks with Nvidia’s discrete GPUs and Max-Q technology. Max-Q laptops are supposed to give you the sweetest spot: gaming-ready graphics in thin, light PCs. However, Max-Q laptops are still a little rare and expensive. The Yoga 720 offers a decent serving of gaming power in a handsome package that doesn’t weigh or cost too much. If I can hate the keyboard and trackpad and still say it’s a good deal, that’s saying something.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.


86.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
