Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 730-15IKB
2-in-1 all-rounder. With the Yoga 730-15IKB, Lenovo delivers a 15.6-inch convertible that is suitable for gaming and for consuming media content. The device scores some major points with its slick metal case, backlit keyboard and a Thunderbolt 3 port. The touchscreen can be operated with the fingers and also with the included stylus. Update: FHD model with a better price-performance ratio.
It's not exactly cheap, but as a laptop that's ready for almost anything, the 730 feels like a solid deal.

In its 15-inch form the Lenovo Yoga 730 offers a good typing experience, ultra-crisp visuals from its 4K display and plenty of power to churn through tasks. However, the processor and screen combination limit battery life somewhat, while the overall design footprint is rather large compared to its Dell XPS competitor.

Despite being slightly let down by its battery life and screen, the Lenovo Yoga 730 is still a great machine, with heaps of power to spare and a great-value 4K display.

The Lenovo Yoga 730 offers excellent ergonomics, a decent design, a solid hinge and a comfortable keyboard, plus internals that offer the power to handle most work tasks. The Dell XPS 2-in-1 may have faster internals and a better screen, but the Yoga 730 is never far behind – with the bonus of being far more affordable.
