Lenovo has introduced the 13.9-inch variants of its excellent Yoga 910 Windows 10 2-in-1. Now, the tech giant has released the Yoga 720 (13-inch), which is a competition to 13.3-inch options like the HP Spectre x360 13 and the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. The Lenovo's Yoga 700-Series is slated as a more affordable alternative to Lenovo's top-tier 900.

Lenovo Yoga 720, which has a 13.3-inch screen and can be configured with an Intel Core i5 7500U processor at 2.5 GHz, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB SSD. It includes a fingerprint scanner and two USB-C ports and starts at $859.99, as reported by Digital Trends.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) comes with the Windows 10 Home 64-bit. The convertible laptop has 1920 by 1080 pixel (FHD) IPS AntiGlare touchscreen and USB Type-A 3.0 sockets. The laptop has Audio jack, Fingerprint scanner, WiFi 802.11 a/c, Bluetooth 4.1, 4 Cell 48-Watt Hour Li-Cylindrical battery.

At first glance, the Yoga 720 (13-inch) looks like any other clamshell notebook PC. But the hinge of the laptop allows the screen to rotate around 180 degrees, effectively making this into a tablet. While using the tablet mode, the keyboard and trackpad are left exposed behind the screen, as noted by Notebookreview.

This Lenovo 13-inch Yoga 720 is 13% lighter and 17% thinner than its predecessor. From the front side, the laptop measures 12.2 x 8.4 (310 mm by 213 mm). It comes only in Platinum Silver but looks attractive for consumers while still appearing professional for business people. The convertible laptop feels very solid.

The display in this laptop is good, but not outstanding. This is a touchscreen, and its pressure sensitive with the optional Lenovo Active Pen 2. Those who want a tablet that sometimes functions as a laptop, detachable 2-in-1s are best that sometimes functions as a laptop. Convertibles like the Yoga 720 are better suited for those who want a laptop that can very often function as a tablet.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (13-inch) benefits powerfully from its seventh-generation Intel Core i5/i7 processor, as these chips bring good performance and long battery lives. The drawback is that this laptop does not include many built-in ports, which will let users purchase a separate USB-C adapter with video-out, Ethernet, etc.
