Until we have chance to fully review the Yoga 720 we can’t say for sure just how good this portable performer is - but our first experience with the 13-inch touchscreen machine suggests the answer will be ‘very’.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) preview: Flexibility at your fingertips
Source: Pocket Lint English
Go to the Lenovo website right now and, at the time of writing, the Yoga 720 isn't yet available. That's because you'll have to wait until April for this mid-size laptop. And part with €999 for the base model - which calculates as approximately £850, but we wouldn't be surprised if it's priced at £999 in the UK too.

Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB

In the past few years 13-inch devices have become more and more popular, gone are the days of debating performance over size, With Lenovo recently debuting the Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB. To begin with, the Yoga 720 features Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i5-7200U, Notebooks of this class usually feature a U series processor which denotes low power without compromising performance, it also comes with 8 GB of memory. As per the Yoga lineup this notebook features two 360-degree hinge design which allows the notebook to convert between a tablet and notebook mode. The chassis construction is mostly made up of aluminium which gives it a very premium classy feel and look. Because of its almost all metal construction it is quite rigid and sturdy with no flex at all which is equally impressive, it most certainly can take a beating although it isn’t advised. Weighing in at only 1.3 kg it is quite light compared to some of its competitors. Although this means due to its lightweightedness opening with one hand is ill-advised. One nice feature of the Yoga 720 is it supports 2 USB type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports with one being able to charge the device which adds to versatility of the Thunderbolt standard. Although the Yoga lineup isn’t strictly marketed as a business notebook it does feature a fingerprint reader and a TPM 2.0 chip which is a plus.
Along with the notebook itself Lenovo also includes an active stylus pen for users who just want to take notes with their notebooks. Other standard user input include the chiclet keyboard which is comfortably large and provides decent feedback, albeit a slightly mushier feeling. Although for heavy typists out there the keyboard might flex under pressure, but still isn’t a problem. The keyboard is also backlit with 2 levels of brightness. For a 13-inch notebook the Yoga 720 has a reasonably large touchpad which is centered below the spacebar away from the usual position. However this shouldn’t be an issue while typing. The touchscreen display is a FHD IPS panel which is very responsive, with inputs from both fingers and active stylus being fast and accurate. However, despite being an IPS panel sRGB ratings were at 84% and AdobeRGB ratings were at 55%, which means professional editing is not suited for this display. That said, Lenovo does offer a 4K panel option, should the user wish to choose. Jumping to the audio department of this device are 2 speakers made by JBL. Depending on the mode sounds are noticeably muted and muffled, but for a convertible overall sound quality is average due to a lack of volume, nonetheless highs and mids are pronounced with a hint of bass. Although the user can try to tune the audio with the included Dolby Atmos software. In terms of battery-life the Yoga 720 scores quite well and even tops the manufacturer’s rating at 8 hours 25 minutes. Ultimately despite the Yoga 720 somewhat trying to emulate Apple’s less is more approach it still does deliver in terms of cost to performance.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) review – a worthy Yoga member with some performance struggles
Source: Laptop Media English
Finally, the users getting the laptop for business would be happy to know that the keyboard and the touchpad will get the work done on the go – they are really comfortable to use. In addition, the battery life is impressive so you won’t have to charge the device several times a day when you are moving around all the time and even if the I/O isn’t enough for you, the Thunderbolt 3 connector gives you plenty of headroom, which is rather unexpected given the price tag of the Yoga 720.

That's not criticism considering that it costs hundreds less and that the HP is one of Computer Shopper's most highly praised hybrids, acclaimed as every bit the equal of elite ultrabooks with multi-mode flexibility as a bonus. Except for its un-Lenovo-like stumble with the arrow keys, we have trouble finding fault with the system.

Competing 2-in-1s that offer this kind of quality, like the Spectre X360 from HP or Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1, are significantly more than I've seen this Lenovo selling for.

Those more expensive options aren't bad buys by any stretch, but Lenovo gets you easily 80% of the way there with this reasonably-priced Yoga.

Convertible Powerhouse. The Lenovo Yoga line has long been the leader in the 2-in-1 notebook market. With the redesigned Yoga 720, the Chinese manufacturer looks to expand that dominance. Can the 15-inch model be flexible enough for consumers, or will it snap under pressure?

Yoga 720 works fine as a laptop and delivers impressive performance as a tablet. There are certain aspects which could have been improved - display for starters - but these are issues which shouldn't sway your buying decision too much. This is a premium product which has standout looks and to go with it gives reliable performance. You won't go wrong buying it if the hybrid is your choice of device. If you're looking for a laptop alone, then there are better options. And if you're looking for just a tablet, then there's always the iPad.

Overall, there’s not much to fault the Yoga 720 on as it delivers very good build quality, a sharp display and good Windows and app performance. Battery life is decent, as long as your usage is frugal. It also works well as a tablet and the bundled active pen puts the touchscreen to better use. A few things could have been better, like having a brighter display, an SD card reader, sensible spacing between the Up/ Down direction keys, and perhaps upward-firing speakers.

Almost every laptop we've seen in recent months and years has some sort of notable compromise.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) benefits powerfully from its seventh-generation Intel Core i5/i7 processor, as these chips bring good performance and long battery lives. The drawback is that this laptop does not include many built-in ports, which will let users purchase a separate USB-C adapter with video-out, Ethernet, etc.

If you are looking for a sleek laptop suited for medium to heavy office use, with a pinch of entertainment, then the Yoga 720 is the one for you. It comes at an affordable price of AED 4999, but that does not mean that Lenovo has compromised on build quality or specs. You can also opt for higher end models which come with better components, but our review model seemed just perfect.

Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB-80X60075SP

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. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB

In the past few years 13-inch devices have become more and more popular, gone are the days of debating performance over size, With Lenovo recently debuting the Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB. To begin with, the Yoga 720 features Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i5-7200U, Notebooks of this class usually feature a U series processor which denotes low power without compromising performance, it also comes with 8 GB of memory. As per the Yoga lineup this notebook features two 360-degree hinge design which allows the notebook to convert between a tablet and notebook mode. The chassis construction is mostly made up of aluminium which gives it a very premium classy feel and look. Because of its almost all metal construction it is quite rigid and sturdy with no flex at all which is equally impressive, it most certainly can take a beating although it isn’t advised. Weighing in at only 1.3 kg it is quite light compared to some of its competitors. Although this means due to its lightweightedness opening with one hand is ill-advised. One nice feature of the Yoga 720 is it supports 2 USB type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports with one being able to charge the device which adds to versatility of the Thunderbolt standard. Although the Yoga lineup isn’t strictly marketed as a business notebook it does feature a fingerprint reader and a TPM 2.0 chip which is a plus.
Along with the notebook itself Lenovo also includes an active stylus pen for users who just want to take notes with their notebooks. Other standard user input include the chiclet keyboard which is comfortably large and provides decent feedback, albeit a slightly mushier feeling. Although for heavy typists out there the keyboard might flex under pressure, but still isn’t a problem. The keyboard is also backlit with 2 levels of brightness. For a 13-inch notebook the Yoga 720 has a reasonably large touchpad which is centered below the spacebar away from the usual position. However this shouldn’t be an issue while typing. The touchscreen display is a FHD IPS panel which is very responsive, with inputs from both fingers and active stylus being fast and accurate. However, despite being an IPS panel sRGB ratings were at 84% and AdobeRGB ratings were at 55%, which means professional editing is not suited for this display. That said, Lenovo does offer a 4K panel option, should the user wish to choose. Jumping to the audio department of this device are 2 speakers made by JBL. Depending on the mode sounds are noticeably muted and muffled, but for a convertible overall sound quality is average due to a lack of volume, nonetheless highs and mids are pronounced with a hint of bass. Although the user can try to tune the audio with the included Dolby Atmos software. In terms of battery-life the Yoga 720 scores quite well and even tops the manufacturer’s rating at 8 hours 25 minutes. Ultimately despite the Yoga 720 somewhat trying to emulate Apple’s less is more approach it still does deliver in terms of cost to performance.

Chic. With the Yoga 720-13IKB, Lenovo delivers a chic 13.3-inch convertible that shines with a great keyboard, a fast NVMe SSD and good battery life. The touchscreen can be used both with the fingers and the included stylus. The quad-core processor can utilize its Turbo boost only for a very short while.

70% Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch, 8th Gen) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Starting at $879, the Lenovo Yoga 720 is a reasonably priced 2-in-1 with a premium feel, good battery life and sleek looks. The display isn't as bright as most ultraportables, but it's more luminous than the competition and is extremely vivid. We just wish the keyboard had more snap to it.

Comment

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.
