Chassis, Connectivity, Screen Lenovo Yoga 730-15IWL (81JS007FFR)
Its iron gray anthracite design gives it a discreet and elegant appearance. It is also original because it can be opened 360 ° to turn it into a tablet.
Its screen is indeed equipped with touch-sensitive multi-touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it or the stylus provided, by pressure / gestures, one can interact with the system and software.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen offers a more accurate colorimetry than average and comfortable viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. With its full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and especially to videos because of its 16 / 9th format. As it is tactile, the screen is brilliant. It brings out the colors but is subject to reflections in bright environment (ex: outside).
This Ultrabook 2-in-1 benefits from a good connection with its USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, its wireless Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely, its HDMI video output useful for the easily connect to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected above.
Performance, autonomy of Lenovo Yoga 730-15IWL (81JS007FFR)
The Lenovo Yoga 730-15IWL (81JS007FFR) may be of interest to those who are looking for a versatile and convertible tablet PC.
It is able to run many games for concessions under opus greedy graphic resources because it takes advantage of the dedicated GeForce GTX 1050 here in 4 GB dedicated version.
With NVIDIA Optimus technology in mind, it turns the GeForce GTX 1050 on and off automatically and in real time, depending on the task.
Optimus maximizes the Intel UHD 620 processor-integrated solution despite its very modest performance because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1050 is therefore requested by Optimus to perform graphic processing estimated too heavy for the Intel UHD 620, both of course to watch photos and videos.
Responsiveness is required with this Ultrabook Hybrid, especially because it is equipped with SSD storage much faster than a hard drive while being less energy, more robust and quiet. In addition here, we take advantage of a SSD of 512 GB, capacity competing with the standard of hard drives which is still too infrequent.
In practice the SSD guarantees a significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a hard disk, with startups / stops and launches of software / games much faster.
At the heart of this 2-in-1 computer are a low-consumption Whiskey Lake i5-8265U quad core processor coupled with 8 GB of RAM. This gives good overall performance able to satisfy many users.
If the goal is to regularly perform heavy work in processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor.
Finally autonomy side, plan about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook 2-in-1 whose compactness and weight under the bar of 2 Kg facilitate transport.
