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) review

  (Rating Hidden)

A laptop/tablet hybrid, the Lenovo Yoga 720 spans two different products, with a rotating screen that doubles back on itself (hence that 'Yoga' moniker). Lenovo have even thrown in a stylus. With the latest 8th generation Intel processor powering the...

Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Lenovo Yoga 720 follows in the footsteps of other laptops in the Yoga range, offering a laptop/tablet hybrid with a screen that can fold back on itself. With the i5 processor, we'd expect it to be pretty speedy, but does it deserve a place in your...

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)

 

The Lenovo Yoga 720 holds its own among fierce competition in the midrange convertible laptop market, offering excellent build quality and a solid blend of features and affordability.

Very comfortable keyboard. Bright, vivid, full HD, touch-enabled display. Thin and light. Affordable.

Anemic speakers.

Bottom Line: The Lenovo Yoga 720 holds its own among fierce competition in the midrange convertible laptop market, offering excellent build quality and a solid blend of features and affordability.

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 Yoga 720 15" review: A powerhouse performing laptop with great looks

 

Lenovo does one better than last year's 710 and makes some useful improvements and performance tweaks to the Lenovo Yoga 720 for this year.

Amazing build quality and materials ; Brilliant and crisp display ; JBL speakers are among the best on a laptop ; Versatility with the Yoga modes ; Windows 10 is still really great ; NVIDIA graphics on some models ; Powers through apps like Photoshop...

Slightly heavier than other laptops ; McAfee, please just stop bundling this in with laptops ; Down firing speakers ; Display could be brighter

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...
