Lenovo Revamps Its New Yoga 720 Laptops
Lenovo recently launched the latest addition to its line-up of Yoga laptops at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which took place in Barcelona.
While the Yoga 900 series of laptops have a premium design and are targeted at the high-end market, the Yoga 720 takes a different route. Priced at approximately Rs. 57,000, the new Lenovo Yoga 720, is a 13-inch laptop that offers everything you would expect from a convertible laptop.
Featuring the classic hinge that can rotate up to 360 degrees, this laptop can be flipped into tent-mode, tablet mode or simply used as a normal laptop. The company has revived its range of the 720 series Yoga laptops and now offers them with the latest 7th generation Core i7 Intel processor, a RAM of 16GB and either 512GB of SSD or a 1TB HDD.
Also being offered is a support for Windows Hello and an all-new fingerprint reader. Cancelling out the need to fill in a password each time, the laptop allows you to simply swipe your finger over the reader to log in to Windows 10. Unfortunately this does not deliver the same convenience as the infrared camera which scans your face. This feature has instead been reserved for Lenovo’s premium laptops as the parts are currently too expensive to offer the feature at a mid-range price.
Offered with either a 13 inch or 15 inch display, the new Yoga 720 laptops will both have a 4K display. While this drains the battery a lot faster than a regular full-HD display, the company has claimed that users should be able to get a battery life of 7 to 8 hours max when using 4K. Both versions of the laptop have a support for the Lenovo active stylus, which allows you to optimally use the new Windows 10 Windows Ink features.
The only major difference that is seen between the two models, is that the 15-inch Yoga 720 is fitted with the Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics card. This means that the 15 inch Yoga 720 will be able to support basic gaming titles, however users will not get the ‘VR Ready’ ability that is offered with a graphic card like the GTX 1060 or higher. This is still a better choice than the 13-inch Yoga 720 model which is fitted with an Intel HD graphic card.
With a sleek and stylish frame that is an iron-grey colour, the new Yoga 720 laptops are sure to make a statement. They even present a premium feel and look despite not being a high-end model. Both versions of the laptop have the trademark prevision trackpads and Lenovo’s high-quality keyboard. The company is set to launch the two laptops for sale sometime in April.
