While the 900-series Yoga convertible laptops might steal all of the thunder, the 700-series is making waves its own — especially with the new Yoga 720.
The Yoga 720 goes for thin and light, offering a 12.5-inch display in a 15.75mm-thick convertible laptop form factor that weighs just 1.15kg. Considering that similarly-sized laptops were recently announced that weigh barely less, that's quite the feat for a convertible — especially in the Yoga 720's price range.
The Yoga 720 is set to start at $649, and to bring the price down some sacrifices had to be made. For one, the signature watchband hinge of the 900 series didn't make it down here, instead Lenovo has opted for a more traditional 360° convertible hinges at each corner. They're still more than adequate, easily and solidly transitioning between laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes.
Under the hood you'l find 7th-generation Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processors (alas, no 8th-generation chips here). Along with that you'll find up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage inside. The 12.5-inch display is an IPS panel with a full HD resolution. The touch panel offers Lenovo Active Pen support, with 4096 levels of sensitivity. When it comes to plugging in, the Yoga 720 offers just one USB-C port (no Thunderbolt 3), one USB-A 3.0 port, a plug for power, and a headphone jack.
The Lenovo Yoga 720 will be available in October 2017 starting at $649.
