80% Lenovo Yoga 730 (15-inch) review: It's all about the 4K display
Source: Pocket Lint English
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.

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.
