Lenovo Yoga 730 | Trusted Reviews

 

The Lenovo Yoga 730 is a powerful, and well-designed laptop that's a decent, less-expensive alternative to the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1.

Decent power for applications and games ; Excellent exterior design ; Comfortable ergonomics ; Solid screen and speakers ; Cheaper than its key rival

Dell XPS has more speed ; Screen could be a little better ; Battery life inconsistent

Got $1,000 for a 13-inch 2-in-1? Get the Yoga 730

 

A new processor and a few other additions make this a solid update to last year's quality 13.3-inch Yoga 720.

The thinner, lighter 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 730 two-in-one improves on last year's model with faster 8th-gen Intel Core i-series processors; dual Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports; far-field mics; a quick-charge feature; and -- eventually -- support for Amazon...

Battery life is good, but not great for the category and is the only area where performance is not better than its predecessor in our tests. USB type-C adapters are needed for Ethernet or HDMI output, and there's no SD card slot.

The 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga 730 doesn't change much from last year, but what Lenovo added definitely improves the package to keep it one of the best thin-and-light two-in-ones you can buy.
