At Mobile World Congress 2017, Lenovo announced a couple of new laptops for 2017 which includes the yoga 720 (15 and 13 inch) and the 14-inch yoga 520. The standout laptop among them is the 15-inch yoga 720 which includes a dedicated gpu in such a thin and light form factor for a relatively less price.
The yoga 720 comes with a gorgeous bezel-less design which can sport a resolution of up to 3,840×2,160 pixels (4K). The screen also supports Lenovo’s optional active pen if you need to do come drawing and other useful stuff. This feature is aimed towards photo editors and notemakers who preffer using a oen rather than a mouse and keyboard.
Since this is 2017, the laptop now sports the new 7th gen kaby lake Intel processors upto an i7, and if thats not enough Lenovo has added a desktop GTX 1050 into the 15-inch Yoga 720 which gives a quite good gaming experince at 1080p. This is also an advantage to video editors who use Adobe Premire Pro which can use the cuda cores for faster rendering and processing.
Design and IO
The laptop is a 2-in-1 convertible so you can use the laptop in tent mode, tradtional laptop and also as a tablet. The input options on the laptop are good which also includes a Thunderbolt 3 port so you can even hook up an external graphic card to the laptop. The laptop also has traditional usb 3.0 type a ports so you don’t need to carry around dongles (Macbook pro cough!).
The Lenovo Yoga 720 will be available in April with the 13.3-inch starting at $860 and the 15.6-inch starting at $1,100. Those convert to approximately Rs.57000 or and Rs.73300 respectively, but also keep in mind that this is India so the prices will be a bit higher 😦
