The Lenovo Yoga 730 is a good mix of durability, portability, performance and affordability. Here’s a well-made, compact device that allows you to perform your typical daily workload without a hitch. The battery life could be better, as could the speakers, but it nevertheless is a decent deal.

90% Lenovo Yoga 730 13 review - The mid-range looks pretty good
Source: Neowin English
There's also a 15-inch model if you need more power. That has the same processor options (a downgrade from last year's Yoga 720, which included 45W H-series processors), but with a 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, an upgrade from its predecessor's 2GB GTX 1050. If you're looking for something with a larger display along with some GPU power for video editing or playing some games, take a look at the 15-inch model.

The 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 730 doesn't change much from last year, but what Lenovo added definitely improves the package to keep it one of the best thin-and-light two-in-ones you can buy.

The Yoga 730 has strong performance, but its screen is odd, its keyboard is shallow, and it doesn't last as long as we'd like.

Lenovo Yoga 730 review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
This is a solid incremental update to the Yoga line that takes what was already pretty great - the design, build quality, and top tier spec options - and adds the latest Intel chips and Alexa support. We’ll be looking forward to testing it out more thoroughly for a full review soon.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Yoga 730 isn’t a huge update on the older 720, but the changes Lenovo has made appear to be positive ones. The minor design optimisations and move to Intel’s 8th-gen family of CPUs will help improve performance and usability in a number of ways.

Flexibility for the masses. Lenovo's 13.3-inch Yoga 730 is an elegantly designed consumer 2-in-1 with impressive performance, great ergonomics and good battery life. Throttling under heavy load remains an issue, however - although that's less of a drawback than one might think.

Lenovo Yoga 730 review – elegant mobile assistant
Source: Laptop Media English
What can we say? Another great all rounder from Lenovo. The Yoga 730 is a worthy successor to last years Yoga 720. Not only it retains all of the merits from its predecessor, but it tackled one main issue – performance. Yoga 720 suffered from a very conservative cooling policy, which didn’t let the hardware to expand its maximum potential. For many people, this singlehandedly spoiled the product and made them turn their heads to a different manufacturer – like HP and their Envy x360, for example.

80% Lenovo Yoga 730-13 review: Ultra-portable, zippy performance, worthy MacBook Air competitor
Source: India Today English
At a starting price of Rs 1 lakh, the Yoga 730-13 is a pretty expensive laptop. It falls into the MacBook Air territory, which as we know, is a seriously capable computer. However, don’t take the Lenovo Yoga 730-13 as an inferior product to the MacBook Air in any way -- there are many things that a MacBook can’t do. The most prominent feature here is its versatility -- using a Windows 10 laptop as a tablet on demand with a brilliant touchscreen and a comfortable keyboard is luxury. The lightweight form factor means you can shove it in the backpack and can go around with a laptop anywhere.
