BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Lenovo came up with several new devices that they presented at the Mobile World Congress 2017. What captured much of the attention was the convertible laptop 13-inch Yoga 720.
This laptop is popular since it can take different shapes. The screen can either be placed in a V shape, angled upward, or placed under the keyboard. The screen is securely locked and, although you can switch it in so many positions, there is no risk that it might be ‘displaced’. Also, it is incredibly easy to adjust.
Lenovo declared that this year’s 13-inch Yoga was lighter and thinner than the last year’s edition. It is only 14.33 mm thick and weighs 2.9 lbs. Despite this slender shape, the screen is probably the most striking, with a resolution of up to 4K Ultra HD.
Yoga 720 might seem compact and narrow, but it shelters many components and ports. It supports Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac. The ports include a Thunderbolt Type-C, USB 3.0, and a microphone and headphone combo of 3.5 mm.
Also, it is fashioned with a 720p camera, 512 GB of SSD storage or the option of a 1 TB HDD. You can unlock the computer only by using a fingerprint sensor. Thus, you can use Microsoft’s Hello authentication system and you are no longer required to set a password. This technique is more secure than former security options.
If these features were not enough for you, then you have to know that Yoga 720 comes with stereo JBL speakers, and the laptop is equipped with Dolby’s Audio Premium software that works perfectly with the speakers.
If you are a drawing enthusiast, Yoga 720 is compatible with Lenovo’s PC Stylus, Windows Ink, the Active Pen, and many other drawing tools. The keyboard is also smooth and the shape of the keys are both perfect for travel and for typing.
The touchpad is also small enough not to occupy lots of space and can work with Windows 10’s touchpad features. Also, the tactile click buttons are sensitive and delicate.
In the end, Yoga 720 sports an Intel Core i7 processor, Intel 620 graphics, and 8 GB RAM. The battery life could have been a little more extensive, but it is overall acceptable, with nine hours on a charge for the Full HD model.
The pricing of 13-inch Yoga 720 starts from $860 and you will be able to purchase it in copper, platinum silver, or iron grey starting April 2017.
