Quick Look: Yoga S730

By Jewel Sta. Ana  

Lenovo has launched the new generation convertible Yoga laptops. The whole lineup has adopted a new naming scheme: C for “Convertible,” D for “Detachable,” and S for “Slim.” First of the new Yoga laptops to arrive in the Philippines is the Yoga S730.

Combining power and stability, the Yoga S730 is the lightest Yoga laptop to date at just 1.1 kg and one of the thinnest at 11.9 mm. It stands out because of its premium and elegant design. Inside its aluminum body is a special cooling system that pulls air through secondary vents hidden under the keyboard enabling a smaller fan and a much thinner chassis.

The 180-degree clamshell laptop has a wide-angle 13.3-inch FHD IPS display powered by Dolby Vision that allows users to bingewatch movies and series in its best picture quality. For a more immersive experience, the Yoga S730 now has razor-thin bezel edges to maximize its screen size and has a front-firing audio system powered by Dolby Atmos.

It also doesn’t come short of connectivity options. It has three USB Type-C ports for transferring data, an extension of the display, and charging, and a 3.5 mm audio-jack for your earphones.

When it comes to hardware, the laptop is powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor for seamless multi-tasking. Among its notable features include a 12-hour battery life with Rapid Charge technology,  512 GB SSD storage paired with an 8 GB RAM, and a fingerprint scanner with Windows Hello. The laptop also comes with pre-loaded software like the Lenovo Vantage (the brand’s own utility app) and a free 30-day trial of Microsoft Office 365 and McAfee LiveSafe.
