Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6″ 2017 4K 2-in-1 with GTX Graphics Review

 

What I like:

  • Sharp display with accurate colours and deep blacks
  • Excellent typing experience
  • Solid build quality
  • Stays cool during operation
  • Decent trackpad
  • Tight hinges
  • Smooth pen experience

What I don’t like:

  • Some PWM on display if backlight is dimmed
  • Port selection could be better
  • Potential screen issues with this model

Specs as reviewed:

  • i7-7700HQ 7th Gen Processor
  • 16GB DDR4 Ram
  • 1TB Samsung SSD
  • 4K IPS Display (BOE)
  • GTX1050 2GB
  • Touch screen with pen (separate purchase)

Conclusion: Since Lenovo is likely going to update this model for 2018, there are some solid bargains on this laptop if you don’t mind 7th gen hardware. It’s quite a capable device for work on the go, plus the flip screen and decent sounding speakers are great for media consumption. It doesn’t get too hot nor too loudĀ  while doing heavy tasks. There are some caveats that come with the price though: the potential screen issues and limited ports. Apart from that, this laptop seems to be great for day to day use, light gaming and media consumption.

Where to buy:

Amazon USA

Lenovo Canada Direct (buy it via Ebates, to get some cash back).
