The Lenovo Yoga 720 may look like a mainstream laptop, but underneath its mild-mannered exterior is a secret power: discrete Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics. It’s not a super-power—you can find gaming laptops with more powerful GPUs. Stuffing a discrete GPU into a laptop creates some compromises, too, especially in weight and thermals. Still, the Yoga 720 gives you some gaming chops for a reasonable price. Considering it’s also a 360-degree convertible, you’re getting a lot of versatility for the money.
Price, specs, and features
The model we tested (80X7001WUS) is actually on the lower end of the Yoga 720 product line at $1,260 as of this writing. Lenovo skimps here and there to keep costs down, as you’ll see when we go through the specs, but don’t judge it until you see how it performs in our tests.
