Why I LOVE The Lenovo Yoga 730

Lenovo sent me a Yoga 730-13″ in return for my unbiased review.

Chronic Pain has me bed bound a lot which is why when I was in the market for a new laptop I wanted something that could perform well on the days I’m stuck in bed. I had a chance last year to test out the Lenovo Yoga 710 11 inch convertible laptop and I loved it however when I saw the Yoga 730 come out I loved some of the features it had to offer so I knew I had to give it a try.

The Lenovo 730 13″ convertible laptop is super portable, it weighs only 2.62 lbs and is just 14.1m Its portability and the fact that it easily converts from a laptop to a tablet is one of the things that really appealed to me. The 730 is packed with speed compared and I found it to be faster then the previous model I received. The Lenovo 730 features the latest 8th generation Intel® Core i7 processors which Lenovo claims offers up to a 40 percent performance boost. I found that the touch screen is very responsive and it boots up very fast.

The Lenovo 730 also charges super fast due to rapid charge technology which gives you 2 hours of charge in just 15 minutes. I found it also holds a charge and I can get about 10 full hours out of one full charge.

One thing that REALLY interested me is the fingerprint technology, the fingerprint reader allows you to easily log in and even make secure payments through PayPal via Windows Hello.
