Chinese device maker Lenovo says its new Lenovo Yoga 720 and 520 laptops are now built for mobile device users who enjoy flipping between work and play.

Lenovo has discovered that there are times when mobile device users want the full power and productivity of a personal computer (PC) in a thin and light machine to multitask, constantly flipping between work and play.

The convertible Yoga laptops were announced by Lenovo at the Mobile World Congress 2017 held in Barcelona in Spain. Available in 13, 14 and 15-inch models, the new Yoga laptops balance design, performance and mobility as it can be converted from a laptop mode to a tent mode.

Coupled with an ultra-responsive touch-screen, the new Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 both offer optional active digital pen support for editing, note-taking and sketching on Windows Ink for more authentic personal expression.

As the lines of work and home life continue to blur, users need consistency and continuity across every facet of their lives (work, home, school, hobbies) and are weary of switching from one computer to another based on location or activity.

In a bid to satisfy these needs, Lenovo has designed the Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 to be versatile and this versatility makes them ideal for users who want to effortlessly multitask and switch between budgeting on a spreadsheet with full keyboard in laptop mode to sharing a video in tent mode.

PERFORMANCE

Having noticed that a majority of users value quality performance above all else, for daily computing needs like online shopping and writing longer emails, Lenovo says the company packed a ton of speed and power under the hood of both the Yoga 720 and Yoga 520, including up to the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processors and Windows 10.

Because users value performance so much, Lenovo says the 15-inch Yoga 720 has been design to stand out as the most powerful convertible laptop in its class with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 discrete graphics and blazing-fast Thunderbolt 3 for the world’s fastest data transfers.

With the new Yoga convertibles, Lenovo says users get the real deal with a top-of-the-line PC and top-notch performance. Better yet, the Yoga 720 features JBL speakers with Dolby Audio Premium to match for a moving audio experience.

FINGERPRINT TECHNOLOGY

To prevent the hassle of logging in with passwords and ensure a safer, convenient and more personal way to help secure the PC, the device maker added an advanced integrated fingerprint reader on the Yoga 720, as well as making it an option on the Yoga 520.

With a touch of their finger, users can swiftly and securely log onto their new Yoga convertibles through Windows Hello.

It is therefore not out of place to say the new Yoga convertibles spot portability with long battery life as the 15-inch Yoga 720 is designed with up to 9 hours of battery life in FHD and the Yoga 520 with up to a whopping 10-hour battery life in FHD.
