For a mid-tier system, the Lenovo Yoga C740 has a lot of premium features. For $899, you get a laptop that’s very versatile, with solid graphics and overall performance, and over 10 hours of battery life. True, it’s a bit heavier than the competition and the screen isn’t very bright, but it’s still a great notebook for the price.

The Lenovo YOGA C740 2-in-1 laptops are a great option to consider for both basic business and general personal use. Relatively affordable, there are many configurations available to allow you to get a system that will serve you best.

That leaves me with my minor gripes with the Yoga C740. It's not comfortable to write on the screen with a pen, and that screen just isn't bright enough for outdoor use in direct sunlight. And of course, there's no Thunderbolt 3, something that you probably don't need, but should be getting at this price anyway.

The C740 is a good machine. You won’t do much better for less than $800. But before buying, I do recommend that you look into its competitors and see what you’re missing out on when you choose a laptop at this price. You’re giving up things like a standout screen, dedicated graphics, and a bundled stylus. If you can do without those, you’ll like the C740 quite a lot. But as other sub-$1,000 competitors continue to innovate, I hope that the budget Yoga line finds a way to keep up.

For its sub-$800 price, the Lenovo Yoga C740 ranks among the most impressive 2-in-1 laptops I’ve ever tested, complete with a bright, eye-popping screen, a svelte and lightweight design for a convertible laptop, solid CPU performance, and impressive battery life. Heck, even its built-in Dolby Atmos speakers are pretty good for laptop speakers. If you’re shopping for a 2-in-1 laptop below $1,000, the Yoga C740 would be a smart choice.

Not even Lenovo would call the Yoga C740 the world's greatest 14-inch convertible (it might say that about the Yoga C940), but this economy model has a lot to offer.

First, let’s start by noting that our artistic talents (or the lack of them) prevented us from showing our most creative users deep information about this product. However, we were able to get a thing or two for them. One of the major positives of this laptop’s Pen usage is its accuracy. We found it to be more accurate than the Yoga 730 for example. The Yoga C740 (14) also has better palm rejection, while the biggest issue we had was when the screen was handled with oily hands. After that, the stylus seems to slide or skip a pixel, mainly because of the unevenness of the surface. So make sure you clean it well with screen spray and a cloth towel before you go on your drawing endeavors.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).
