Lenovo Yoga 720 Review: A Strong Laptop
Computers are reliable companions, providing us with necessary software for work and entertainment when we need to rest. The Lenovo Yoga 720 aspires to provide a well-rounded laptop and, in most aspects, it succeeds.
Apple’s MacBook Air is a well-established brand, but CNET’s assessment of the 720 assures us that it is a strong option for your attention. Lenovo’s latest portable computer comes in two varieties: one has a 13-inch screen, and the other has a 15-inch screen.
The former model weighs just under three pounds, and its battery life will maintain itself for up to 10.5 hours. However, while its screen does offer “good color performance,” it would be inadequate for professionals to use for image manipulation or video editing. The display, however, is touch-enabled, and it works well with Lenovo’s Active Pen accessory.
The Yoga 720’s keyboard is of sufficient quality, with respectable spacing between the backlit buttons. They are comfortable to type with, thanks to how they offer “a fair amount of travel.” Notably, the size of the Shift key is discernably bigger than in comparison to its predecessors. Likewise, the laptop’s Windows Precision touchpad worked well.
A 720p camera is embedded into the device, along with four ports, two of which are USB Type-C with Thunderbolt inputs, while the other two are meant for an audio jack and a USB 3.0 device. A fingerprint reader is also present for those who favor security.
The 13-inch iteration of the Lenovo Yoga 720 comes in two colors, platinum silver and iron gray, and both will cost $799.99. If purchased with its default configurations, the Yoga 720 comes with 8GB of memory, a 256GB SSD, an Intel HD 620 graphics card and a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-7200U processor.
