When Lenovo announced that they were gonna change the way 2 in 1 (and of course, weight and battery life!!) they weren’t kidding. Today we are gonna check out one of the most awaited 2 in 1 this company ever made, Lenovo Yoga 720 80X70059GE.
- CPU – Intel Core i5 Quad-Core 7300HQ (7th Gen), 2.5 GHz
- GPU – 2 GB DDR5, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
- Memory – 8 GB DDR4 (Upgradeable up to 16 GB)
- Screen – 15.6-inch Full HD IPS (1,920 x 1,080)
- Storage – 256 GB SSD
- OS – Windows 10 Home edition
- Performance – Performance wise it’s good as this specific model coming with an Intel i5 Quad H series prosy with 256 GB SSD ( booting time under 5 sec). Really good for the business user or people who travel as it’s under 2kg and yes obvious it has the multi-touch facility and it’s quite fast and has enough power to multitask and run few heavy programmes simultaneously. Due to its FHD display images are quite sharp and crisp and battery wise it will give around 7 hrs life after a single charge.
- GPU – It houses NVIDIA’s among the moderately mediocre GPU, GeForce GTX 1050. This GPU makes this machine of a machine run almost every title available in the market, no matter how graphics intensive they are, seamlessly in its native 1080 resolution in the highest settings(I said highest not on Ultra) and achieve a staggering ~60 fps frame rate consistently. It was able to achieve respectable frame rates for games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (~31 fps in 1080p High, >21 fps in Ultra), Overwatch (>93 fps in 1080p high, ~56 fps in Ultra), NFS (~63 fps in 1080p High, ~33 fps in Ultra) and Dota 2 reborn (~126 fps in 1080p High, >109 fps in Ultra) in the high display resolution.
- Cooling – Now Lenovo could do a bit better in heat management. Even after a serious gaming session, the maximum temperature exceeded 55Â°C at the top of the deck (without plugging the charger) and with charger, it touches around 80Â°C while playing the game. So Better if you can get a cool pad or re-apply thermal paste.
- Price – Be honest it’s coming against $1500 whereas in that much of price I could get some more space and a little more powerful processor. If you are looking for a gaming rig donâ€™t invest in it as itâ€™s good for daily use and occasional gaming.
- Portability – We are dealing with 2 in 1 here and itâ€™s not heavy nor I can say its featherweight (4.40lb or 2kg) but thickness almost 0.7inch or 1.9cm. So if you can adjust the weight thickness give you some room in terms of portability.
- Noise – Noise level you canâ€™t complain about it as almost no noise is there until we run some heavy games in high or ultra. Otherwise in regular use or presentation or running some high-end programme you have no space for complaint due to the high noise of fans.
Let’s clear one thing out first- it’s not for everyone at all (neither do every Joe can afford it). If you are looking for a complete pack of Light weighted, touch capacitate, full HD display with a moderate amount of processor power and a little older GPU and over average battery life you have the best bet in this 2 in 1 segment. Provided that if you are ready to spend almost $1500 for a daily use laptop.
