Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) review

 

Looking at the 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 720, I can't understand why you would consider an Apple MacBook Air. I mean, if you're a Mac user and averse to Windows, I understand that. But otherwise, everything about the Yoga 720 makes the Air look antiquated.

The 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 720 2-in-1 has a sturdy, but slim metal chassis that weights 2.9 pounds. The full-HD display supports active pen input. It has a comfortable, brightly backlit keyboard with no unusually small keys and a smooth, responsive...

Battery life is good, but behind similarly configured ultraportable laptops. USB type-C adapters are needed for Ethernet or HDMI output and there's no SD card slot.

The 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 720 is a slim, lightweight 2-in-1 with a premium look and feel, but without the big price tag.

Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB (7200U, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Classy and versatile! Lenovo crams energy-efficient components into their new 13-inch convertible while at the same time managing not to skimp on battery capacity. Find out what else the Yoga 720 has to offer in our extensive review.

classy design ; flawless and high-quality finish ; decent input devices ; fingerprint reader ; firm 360-degree hinges ; bright display with good viewing angles ; versatile ; two USB Type-C ports ; USB port with power delivery ; excellent battery life ;...

loud under load ; ill-conceived microphone placement ; no SD-card reader ; mediocre multi-core performance ; not enough external ports

Lenovo’s Yoga 720-13IKB is a solid and enduring versatile 13-inch convertible with low weight, small size, and 360-degree hinges. It is based on Intel’s current generation Core i5-7200U Kaby Lake, offers 8 GB of RAM, and it is adequately fast thanks to...

Lenovo's Yoga 720 13 offers solid performance, but is held back by an average display and mediocre battery life.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) Review and Ratings

 

Onlookers will think, and you'll feel as if, you spent more than you did for Lenovo's affordable, classy convertible.

Chic design ; Priced right ; Thunderbolt 3 port

Poor keyboard layout ; Slightly wobbly screen ; External monitor requires USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 adapter

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...
