The best thing about convertible laptops is the fact that they merge the best of two worlds. You get the productivity offered by a traditional laptop along with the convenience of being able to use the laptop in multiple modes. The Yoga series from Lenovo is probably the most appropriate and recognisable representation of convertible laptops today. Lenovo has pioneered the convertible segment by being an early entrant in the space with its Yoga series of convertible laptops that cater to a wide range of buyers, from affordable to premium, Lenovo has a Yoga offering for every kind of buyer. The Lenovo Yoga 730 is the latest in the Yoga series and it manages to offer the classic Yoga promise with latest hardware and all the necessary improvisations that make for a powerful and versatile convertible laptop. Let’s dive straight into the key features that make the Lenovo Yoga 730 so special.
The Lenovo Yoga 730 is available in two variants, one with a 13.3-inch display and another with a 15.6-inch display. While both devices are pretty similar, there are certain hardware differences between the two, besides the obvious difference in size. This gives buyers multiple option, so they can choose a device based on their needs and budget.
A laptop needs to be easy to carry around and it seems like Lenovo kept this in mind when designing the Yoga 730. The 13.3-inch variant is 13.9mm at its thinnest, while the 15.6-inch variant 16.9mm at its thinnest point. Thanks to its thinness, the laptop is easy to carry around in a bag.
As mentioned earlier, the Lenovo Yoga 730 is available in two display sizes, a 13.3-inch variant and a 15.6-inch variant. However, both variants offers users the same options of the panel. They can choose between a UHD display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, or an FHD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Further, both laptops offer support for Lenovo Active Pen 2 stylus, which comes bundled with the device. So buyers don’t have to feel left out for choosing a particular variant of the Yoga 730.
Both variants of the Lenovo Yoga 730 are available with up to an 8th Gen Core i7 processor, which is one of the newest chipsets from Intel. However, those who purchase the 15.6-inch variant of the laptop will get an additional option a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card, instead of Intel’s built-in graphics card. This should be good news to those who plan to do a little bit of gaming on their device.
Battery backup is one off the most important things to look out for in any portable device. It seems like Lenovo knew this all too well when making Yoga 730. The company says that the 15.6-inch variant of the can offer up to 9 hours of use with the UHD display, and up to 11 hours with the FHD display. The 13.3-inch variant tops this by offering 11.5 hours of battery life regardless of the display resolution. Furthermore, the smaller variant of the Yoga also comes with a Rapid Charge technology. Lenovo says that this allows the 13.3-inch variant of the two offers 2 hours of use with 15 minutes of charging.
