The Lenovo Yoga C740 and battery power

The battery life of the Lenovo Yoga C740 is, in a word, adequate. When used for general work tasks like heavy web browsing or writing and editing documents, you can expect to get about 6-7 hours out of a full charge with medium brightness levels.

This isn't an excellent result by any means, but it's also far from a bad one. Most people won't need to use their device for more than 6-7 hours away from an open wall socket, and the Lenovo Yoga C740 boasts a quick recharge time of just under an hour. Therefore, you won't need to worry about the device dying on you, even though the battery life could be better.

There are lots of reasons to pick up a Lenovo Yoga C740. It's one of the most affordable laptops around right now, but that doesn't mean it's a weak performer. Between the powerful Intel 10th-Gen i7-10510U processor, the solid Intel UHD Graphics, and the ability to choose up to 16GB of RAM, this device packs some decent horsepower. The HD displays are nice as well, and you have the option between a 14 and a 15-inch one. Both displays have an excellent brightness of 300 nits and come with support for Dolby Vision HDR. Lastly, the laptop comes with Dolby Atmos speakers for a premium sound experience.

From a physical point-of-view, the Lenovo Yoga C740 is fantastic as well. The low-profile keyboard feels great to use, and the device is very light and doesn't take up much space, making it easy to carry around with you. The bezels for the screen are also razor-thin, which is always a bonus for laptop users. 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 a healthy amount of peripheral support.
