Lenovo’s new Yoga 720 hits all the right notes with a GTX 1050, Yoga 520 and Miix 320 also announced
Today at MWC Lenovo has revealed more brand new laptops and tablets, all powered by Windows in the form of the Yoga 720, Yoga 520, and the Miix 320.
Lenovo Yoga 720
First, let’s talk about the Yoga 720. This machine comes with the latest and greatest 7th generation Intel chipsets and comes in two sizes ─ 13-inch and 15-inch. Both machines feature screens up to UHD resolution and also offer up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage (1TB HDD, 512GB PCIe SSD). In the 13-inch model, users can take advantage of processors up to an Intel i7 which is paired with Intel HD Graphics 620. All of that comes in a package just 14.3mm thick and just under 3lbs.
The 15-inch model, on the other hand, packs a little more of a punch. Like the 13-inch, it has a UHD display, Intel i7, 16GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage, but it also takes a step forward with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 under the hood. This provides a little more power for graphic intensive work, such as photo or video editing.
Both machines of course offer Lenovo’s infamous 360-degree hinge as well as features such as Windows Hello and Windows Ink. Fingerprint readers are also available for both, and each comes with a USB-C port among others. Battery life is also rated at 8 hours on a UHD display. Pricing for the 13-inch model starts at $859 and the 15-inch starts at $1,099.
Lenovo Yoga 520
One of Lenovo’s other new offering is the Yoga 520. With a 14-inch FHD display, this model bridges the gap in size for many, and still brings plenty of power to the table. The processor is available up to a 7th gen Intel i7 which is paired with up to 16GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card, and up to 1TB of HDD storage or 512GB of PCIe storage. The 520 is also available with a fingerprint reader and comes with a Type-C port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and always on charging through the full size USB ports. Pricing on the Yoga 520 starts at $799.
Lenovo Miix 320
Last but not least, there’s the Miix 320, one of Lenovo’s latest Windows-powered tablets. This machine offers a pretty bare bones spec sheet, but with a starting price of just $199. For that you’ll get a 10.1-inch FHD display, Intel Atom X5 chipset, Windows 10, 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage. The tablet is available with a keyboard and can also be purchased with LTE if you’d like.
