Hands-on Review : Yoga 720 – Lenovo Preps for Spring with Three New Yoga 2-in-1s

Spring will be here soon, so Lenovo decided to do a little cleaning and revamp its mid-range Yoga lineup with three new 2-in-1s ranging from 13- to 15-inches.

The Yoga 720 is the mid-range member of Lenovo’s Yoga portfolio, and will be available either as a svelte 13-inch convertible or a bigger 15-inch model. The 13-inch model’s claim to fame is its sleek 0.56-inch profile which is almost exactly the same as its more premium counterpart, the Yoga 910, despite the 720’s lower $869 starting price.

Personally, I think the 15-inch 720 might be the more interesting of the two, because while both 720 models share similar specs including up to an Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD, the 15-inch version also has room for an Nvidia 1050 GPU if you want it.

This means the 15-inch Yoga 720 should have no trouble playing most AAA games at 1920 x 1080, just so long as you don’t mind turning the graphics to medium or high instead of ultra. However, compared to a traditional budget gaming laptop like the Dell Inspiron 15 7000, which starts at just $799, the 15-inch Yoga starting price is significantly higher at $1,100.
