The Lenovo Yoga C740 and touch

Touch support allows users to easily manipulate webpages and programs while using their device in a setting where typing and using a trackpad may not be ideal, and it's also an incredibly important feature for 2-in-1 laptops like the Lenovo Yoga C740 that can be used as a tablet. While not crucial, additional support for inking with digital pens allows people to use touch with more precision, and stylus' can also be used for creating artwork or taking notes, too.

Thankfully, the Lenovo Yoga C740 supports both touch as well as support for styluses, giving it excellent versatility. It's important to note, though, that a stylus will only work if it supports the Wacom AES 2.0 protocol. If you're looking for an excellent stylus to pair with the device, we recommend the Lenovo Active Pen 2. It's pretty affordable as far as digital styluses go, and it supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and also comes with three programmable shortcut buttons that you can use to make your note-taking or art creation experience more convenient.

There are lots of reasons to pick up a Lenovo Yoga C740 beyond touch compatibility and digital pen support. It's one of the most affordable 2-in-1 hybrid laptops out there right now, but don't let that fool you; it isn't a slouch when it comes to performance. Between the powerful Intel 10th-Gen i7-10510U processor, the competent Intel UHD Graphics, and up to 16GB of RAM, this little laptop packs quite a solid punch for general work tasks and media-viewing. The HD displays are pretty great too — you have the option between a 14 and a 15-inch one, both of which have an excellent brightness of 300 nits and come with support for Dolby Vision HDR for a glorious enhancement for your viewing experience. Rounding out the laptop's strong performance are its Dolby Atmos speakers that provide excellent spatial audio.

From a physical perspective, the Lenovo Yoga C740 is fantastic too. The low-profile keyboard feels great to type on, and the device is super thin and light, which makes it easy to carry around with you. The bezels for the screen are also razor-thin, which is always a plus. It's got a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello as well, and in terms of ports, there are two USB-C 3.1 slots (not Thunderbolt 3) as well as a USB-A 3.1 slot for excellent peripheral connectivity.
