      I'm writing this review as someone who is extremely picky with their electronics, wanting to get the best overall package. Firstly, I really like the Windows Precision Touchpad for the gestures which make working on the laptop feel nice. In fact, I really came close to getting a HP Spectre X360 the other day based on a lot of great reviews, but the trackpad felt off to me and did not support all the gestures I wanted to use. That feature is a dealbreaker for me, so I'm glad this knocks it out of the park. The ability to swap desktops with a four finger swipe can help out when trying to do a lot on a smaller screen. To round out my comments on the inputs, the keyboard works great too. For me, it has the right combination of very solid feeling key presses with enough travel to feel satisfying while still feeling fast. That one is personal preference though; I think the new MacBook keyboards feel nice, where some people hate them. Some keyboards throw me off with their layout, but this one feels good. One niggling annoyance...the backlighting has 3 levels, bright/medium/off, and unlike what I'm used to it's static. In other words, if you're watching a video they will just stay illuminated all the time..I would rather the backlighting time out and turn off if you aren't touching the machine, to reduce glare and distraction while watching a video. But, that's just what I'm used to (coming from a Surface Pro 4). It's very quick to toggle though, with function+spacebar, and the keyboard is natural enough that I usually don't need the light unless I'm using special characters. Performance is something that I really missed coming from a Surface m3, and this machine feels really responsive. In CineBench R15, I got a score of 714 after some tweaking for the CPU test. For comparison, the MacBook Pro 13 is around 360 according to online tests. Some tasks may not show that difference, but in heavy workloads the new quad-core U-series processors are the first big step forward in some time for laptops this size. One feature I like is the hardware support for VP9 video codec used by Youtube, which enables better battery and lower utilization of resources to watch videos, compared to 6th gen or older. After years of incremental improvements (and some time spent with a noticeably less powerful machine) I felt that the 8th gen processor was a must. This is what knocked the MacBook Pro out of contention for me, combined with its lack of features and high price of storage upgrades. Speaking of storage - getting a NVMe storage drive at this price is great. It helps the machine boot faster than my gaming desktop which itself is a beast. The drive is also user-replacable, important in the future when 1tb or more NVMe drives are less expensive. Another factor in performance is cooling, and this machine has a two fan cooling solution, unlike the non-touchbar MBP. I saw temperatures spike high (never over safe limits) and then drop as the fans ramped up. They were very noticeable during intital setup, but I have not heard them much since. The noise is not too annoying, however. Importantly down the road, they're easily accessible for cleaning. Notably, it seems like in laptops this size Core i7 is not a huge leap from Core i5, in most cases offering roughly similar performance due to themal or power limits. Finally for performance, DDR4 ram is used instead of slower low-power DDR3 and the 802.11AC wifi worked well with my router delivering internet speeds the same as my desktop which is wired in (the wireless card is also upgradable to meet future standards, if you were wondering). For design, I think they did a nice job. Once I removed the stickers, it's a clean looking machine. I don't think it's anything that will realistically catch someone's eye and stand out, but it's not priced like that either. The one standout design feature compared to older machines is the slim bezel display that is becoming popular. I think it looks great and while it's not the slimmest around (Dell XPS 13 takes that crown), it is slim enough to look nice and is the standout characteristic of the machine. I don't use the webcam much but the slightly larger top bezel allows it to be placed at a better angle which some laptops sacrifice for design. I wouldn't care, but if you do use your webcam this is a selling feature. This laptop also features a fingerprint scanner, which is a selling feature for me. My Surface had Windows Hello IR camera, basically facial scanning. That worked well and I liked it. This works faster, and better, and in more conditions/wearing a hat/at odd angles. I would really miss this feature, and MacBook Pro reserving it for the touchbar model is a bit of a bummer. Some sort of quick-login is a must, it's great to have. Another feature that this piles on is support for Wacom AES pens, with more than 4000 levels of pressure sensitivity. It's nice for taking notes, drawing, or retouching photos. Another feature is fast-charge. The laptop only takes a little more than an hour to charge when it's off. Of course, having a normal USB port is something that will be nice, I still have a lot of USB peripherals. It also supports always-on charging which is super handy. Funny, but charging an iPhone with the included cord is something you can do on this machine, not on a MacBook. I have a USB-C phone, so the convenience of your laptop charger also working for your phone is great. The included charger is 65w, compared to some competitors 45w (Dell XPS 13) or 61w (MacBook Pro 13), which helps the machine stay charging even when heavily taxed. Of course, I haven't even touched on the 2 in 1 aspect, which is another feature. It's not something I would use all the time, but it's nice to have. The other models I was considering did not include this feature for the most part, and I don't consider it a must have. However, when you're getting it basically for free, why not. Touch is another nice to have. I find it easier to use the great trackpad, but for the drawing features or for space like on an airplane, the 2 in 1 flexibility is nice when you use it and you don't really pay a big price for it in money or functionality when you don't need it. There are 2 thunderbolt 3 ports if you want to dock the machine or add a graphics card externally in the future. This laptop also includes far-field microphones to let you use Cortana across the room as you can Alexa. I haven't tried those features. Are there drawbacks to this machine compared to the competition? Yes. I think the screen is good, not great. The brightness is good, but not as high as the more expensive options in the class. The glossy nature of the screen also invites glare more than I am used to. I haven't tried it outside, but I would not expect it to do great in that setting. The battery is the same story. It's not as great as class leaders like the XPS and might be similar or a little less than a MacBook Pro 13. I've seen varying reports on what that machine can do. This one does use the more power hungry DDR4, which might explain some of it. I've seen around 6-7 hours though with video watching use and it seems to predict more for general web browsing, at a medium brightness setting. I have also seen it predict less when under load, which they all do. But, with the fast charging, I think it helps make up for this. That said, I think it's good enough for me. I would like XPS levels of 12+ hours, but I understand this machine is much cheaper and with more features, so it's a trade off. Another good-not-great aspect is the speakers. They're loud enough but lack a real punch. Again, I sort of get it. Nothing is perfect. The build is great feeling especially settled on a table, and premium, and does not flex when picking up from a corner. That said, it can make a *very* slight creaking which I don't think MacBook Pro would do. Again, a slight trade-off for a bottom panel that removes with screws in a straightforward manner for cleaning the fan or swapping battery, SSD, or Wifi module. You sort of need to be looking for this issue, so it's a nitpick, but I've nitpicked every machine I've looked at so I have to be fair. Finally the design, it is a little hard edged for my tastes in tablet mode or sometimes in my lap, like in bed. It's not terrible, but I could see improvements being made there. I think this laptop is greater than the sum of its parts, and a really great mix of features. For me, it hits the must haves completely, with enough nice-to-haves to surprise and delight. It says something that I was in the market for around ~$1000 machines and ended up with this one at a significant discount. I still like the XPS 13 but they seemed so close, it wasn't worth about $500 more for a similar configuration. The MacBook and Surface Laptop still lack the new processors which is strikes me slightly as lazy at this point when every other maker has them. Again, the HP Spectre X360 felt off in the touchpad which was a total dealbreaker, and more flimsy than this unit. This laptop isn't perfect but in a crowded market really strikes me as a great deal, great overall unit, and the best fit for me. I don't usually make such a long review, but I have been looking into every aspect of this class of laptop lately so I hope this helps someone. I do recommend it!

      Best College Computer For The Money.....On Sale!

      Posted
      QuinnipiacFather

      Very nice computer. I bought for my daughter, Sophomore at Quinnipiac. Very fast boot up. She will use it a lot in tablet mode taking notes. (Biology Major) She will also use it a lot in tent and laptop mode for watching netflix and hulu. One thing you have to do though is to de-select the adaptive brightness control. This measures the ambient light via your webcam to adjust your screen setting automatically. You don't want this. It dims the display automatically. Turn it off. It is so much brighter and nice, then you can adjust yourself for battery savings and such. Another thing to change is your dolby atmos settings. It comes set up for "music" and this is awful for speaker output. Change that to "dynamic" or choose your own settings like I did with the adjustable bars for treble, midrange, and bass. The sound coming out of the speakers after this is "another world!" They are already down-firing speakers and the default setting at "music" is pathetic. Remove Mcafee and use your own or just use defender like she is doing. Most colleges have anti-virus and firewall in their intranet anyway. Oh, a big money savings is that you don't have to waste money on buying an "active pen 2" for $70 bucks. The "active pen 1" works fine for $25 bucks at walmart, like I did. There are about 2500 pressure settings with active pen 1. Unless you need more, 4500 or so, then get the active pen 2. But unlike what people say about compatibility, the active pen 1 works great & fine. She uses it with all windows ink programs. The battery life is so-so. Don't have any to compare it to other than older laptops. Tweaking and shutting off stuff will improve as usual. Only one USB-A 3.1 for legacy support. It does works backwards with her older printer. The 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports are great! They both will charge the computer. They are both on left side of laptop. In the task tray down below you will have a box that you can bring up to shut off certain things for battery savings and you can also select "rapid charge" when your charger is connected to either USB-C ports. This charges the laptop "super" fast as we have witnessed! Great for a "top off" before class or a disconnect of your charger brick for some time. Be aware, the charger brick is pretty healthy in size! It is a 65watt charger at 120volts, of course. Keep in your backpack in a separate pouch if needed? If you have a full 8 hours of classes I would suggest bringing the charger brick with you just in case. She likes to look at screen in full brightness capacity and if you do so you will need to give it a little "rapid charge" at some point in an 8 hour school day. If only going for a 3-4 hour jaunt, you are probably good to go. Last but not least, I bought her a Tomtoc laptop sleeve on Amazon. It is the 13" version that fits the Dell XPS. Well it fits very nicely. The nice light grey exterior and the very "protective" interior suits the 730 Yoga 13" nicely. Doesn't slop around and front zipper pocket can hold your "active pen 1" and earbuds, and thumb drives. Laptop sleeve was $19.99. I got this Lenovo Yoga 730-13 laptop for $599 after sales and college deal in mid August, 2018. I think it was the best deal on the market at that time for what my daughter needed, and Dad!

        https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/battery-saver-windows-10. Additionally, to maximize battery life, try changing your power management setting to a more conservative one. You can do this in the control panel, in the power management category on your system. Select a more conservative power management setting to extend battery life. lenovo

      Screen Flickering

      Posted
      irwinners

      I read some of the reviews before buying this about the screen flickering issue and thought that there would be no way I'd get one of the laptops with that issue. I've had the laptop about two months and have been plagued for the last month with the flicker. It has gotten to the point where the screen becomes unusable when it is having one of its flickering episodes. I took it into GeekSquad last week to get everything updated and had high hopes that it would come out fixed. This was in alignment with the recommendations Lenovo has made in response to other reviews on the flickering issue. Last night as I was sitting down to do some homework, the flicker reared its ugly head again (one day after picking it back up from GeekSquad). The way I get it to go away is by moving the lid or slightly tapping the side of the machine (makes me think it is hardware related). I can almost guarantee that the response from Lenovo will be that I need to update drivers (that's why I went to GeekSquad) or that I need to reach out to technical support, which will in turn require me to send the machine to a service center (I chatted with them briefly a month ago, and that's what they wanted me to do). The problem is that I am in school and need a machine to do school work. I can't go without a machine while I'm waiting for it to be repaired. I hate writing a negative review because I really like the look and feel of the laptop. It is the perfect size and really was what I was looking for. That being said, I don't feel that it is unfair to expect a laptop to be dependable and usable two months after purchase. From what I'm seeing in other reviews, a number of people aren't having this issue, so maybe I just got one of the lemons. Feel free to roll the dice...

      This is such an amazing laptop. I was shopping for a laptop for college and was shooting for the surface pro, but it was discontinued, so I began looking, did my research and decided on this one! I have always loved the durability and despite the thinness and fragile/premium looking design, it works great! As a college student, specs were important to look at, and with the given details, its perfect for college. School: I've been using it to take notes, watch Netflix in my free-time, and I edit videos and host a website. Performance: The SSD is definitely a plus, as it greatly helps speed it up. The 8th gen intel processor is also a really nice upgrade, helping the battery life a little more than the older lenovo yogas Comfort: Being well known for their keyboards, I was not dissapointed. As it is a lot smaller you sacrifice some key travel but its still got a punchy key press feel which I love, not like the tiny clicks of the macbooks. Also, the heat/cooling on this is a LOT nicer than other laptops Ive had that gets a little warm under some stress but it doesn't cook your legs Durability: Like I said, built pretty well, I like the simple silver look, (my preference) Take care of if and it should last you a really long time Recommendations: Get a stylus. Its not required and while some staff may try to push for accessories, this can be important for notetaking and has been really useful for me Get a protective case, while it is durable, its always a good idea to get a case. I have a 13 inch macbook case and it fits great. If you can, try on any cases on the display model to make sure it fits.

      Nonstop Screen Flickering

      Posted
      Mason

      I usually don't write reviews for products, but the awfulness that is this laptop brought it upon me to save others from going down the same path that I did. I really wanted to love this laptop. The features are great, but I will never be buying another Lenovo product again. I purchased this laptop for school to take notes. The second day of class, the screen occasionally started to flicker. At first, I thought it was a software problem. I looked at countless forums and Lenovo help posts. I updated my drivers for my BIOS, chipset, you name it. I even changed around values in regedit. Nothing worked. Eventually, I figured out that when I applied pressure to the screen, the flickering would stop. There it was, a hardware issue. The flicker became increasingly worse to the point where if I didn't apply pressure to the screen, it would become completely black. I had enough of the flickering, so I went back to Best Buy where I bought the laptop and was luckily able to swap it out. They said that they've never seen it before and it was "probably just a one in a million factory defect." So I got the same exact laptop and was overjoyed that I was finally able to utilize all of the great features without the annoying flicker. Today, the dreaded flicker showed its ugly face once again on my brand new laptop. I have never dropped or done any harm to this laptop whatsoever. It's ridiculous that a large company like Lenovo puts out laptops with issues like this. I will be returning to Best Buy to return this piece of garbage and to buy a different brand of 2-in-1 laptop. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

      Slow, not good for basic online use!

      Danimite1

      I bought this laptop a few months before I took a trip around the world. Thought it would be light to travel with and the quick charge seemed like a good feature. Just need it for basic online correspondence and entertainment. But it is slow as dirt. I’ve tried to fix to no avail. Took it to geek squad at Best Buy charged $100 for a once over and got a minimal bump connectivity speed. They striped off the excessive add ware, removed programs running in back ground, upgraded security software. Minimal increase in speed, I think removing McAfee was the main help. I’m now traveling so Best Buy is not an option. Took it to an IT guy who removed and reloaded the driver software and tried a few other tricks - nope -no help. He said it may be a defect or lenovo’s may just be painfully slow. I had a very old Lenovo at work that was way faster than this. He said Lenovo has had issues with incompatible components?Tried to contact Lenovo support but no options to submit for help. They don’t use email. They don’t allow chat from abroad. They have an app that took two hours to down load but crashed the laptop trying to install. The only option is to call them which is endless hold. Not cheap or convenient from abroad because they only allow I call the region I bought it from. Call-in is the only option?! Really? Can’t return. 3 months in, with AOL dial up speed. My options and patience are diminishing, may have to write this off and move on. Lenovo if your out there please let me know if you have any ideas. Junk- Don’t buy this computer.

      Ok. I NEVER write reviews because I’m usually too lazy to create an account and write the all thing, but in this case, I will make an exception. WORST computer experience I have ever had. I guess it was by mistake not paying any attention and not reading all the reviews. Flickering started just 3 days after I bought the computer. I did everything I could to fix that problem: restoring to factory settings, updating all drivers I could find, using the above-mentioned Lenovo tools – nothing worked !! instead of doing my job those days, I was obsessed to fix that problem. The flickering got so bad that in one point the computer just freeze. After 3 days I gave up. I guess that in my case I lucked out because I bought the computer at Best buy and the flickering started only 3 days upon buying, that so I could use the return policy and return that defective computer with ease. I do thank Best Buy for that. By the way, when I was returning this computer, I was told that a lot of other buyers complained about that flickering issue and returned their computers as well.. I’m not an export but I do have some experience with software engineering. Seriously doubt it is a software problem – feels like and Hardware thing. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPUTER TO ANYONE!!

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

        We are sorry to hear that you had issues with screen flicker with your Lenovo Yoga 730-13. This issue may be caused by a recent Windows 10 update that requires a separate update of both BIOS and Driver software on the device. This is easily done by using the Lenovo Utilities installed on the device. This system has Lenovo utilities installed to help maintain the health of the device and keep the operating system software up to date. Type "Lenovo Vantage" in the Cortana Search window (if Lenovo Vantage is not installed on your device, you can download the APP and install it now). Select Lenovo Vantage from the list. In the window that opens, click on "Health and Support". In the expanded menu, select "Hardware Scan" In the window that opens, select "Run Quick Tests". This will scan your entire system for errors. Follow any directions that may pop up. If the problem continues after this scan, now click on "System Update". First select Windows update from the menu. Scan your system to be sure you have the latest version of Windows 10. Once that scan is complete, select "Additional Updates". This will scan your device to be sure there are no new BIOS/Driver updates needed. Follow any instructions that may pop up. If the issue still continues after these updates, we recommend you call Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686 for additional help. lenovo

      Really good combo laptop/tablet

      My wife had a very old PC (2010) that was updated to Windows 7 but finally on its last legs. She wanted a classic laptop with good performance, but also wanted the flexibility to use it as a tablet from time to time. This computer satisfies this need perfectly - a very capable laptop with excellent performance / response time, lots of memory and good display and keyboard feel. And the ability to swing the display 360 degrees to form a pretty good tablet is pretty impressive. This machine of course uses Windows 10, the latest, and that in itself takes some getting used to. And need an effective Word / Excel / Email app to add to the purchase (we chose MS Office but at a price!). Both the OS and Office seem much too complicated compared to the earlier incarnations - but not the fault of Lenovo. The new touchpads being produced also are different - no left and right buttons, instead included in the touchpad - takes some getting used to. I do find that the touchpad seems a bit too sensitive and too easy to initiate a click without wanting to - haven't yet figured out how to defeat this yet. This is a very lightweight machine for being a convertible laptop/tablet. Also, very good battery life (about 10 hours advertised). In summary, a great little laptop/tablet combo. Can't go wrong with Lenovo for design and quality.

        Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga 730-13 for your wife. With regard to the touchpad, you can make adjustments to the touchpad in your system settings. You can get there by clicking on the magnifying glass at the bottom left of your Windows 10 screen. Type "touchpad" in the search window. Select "Mouse & touchpad settings" from the list of choices. You can make general adjustments to the touchpad there. You can also select "Additional mouse options" for more detailed adjustments to the touchpad sensitivity by increasing the delay of the touchpad. lenovo

      I want a 2-in-1 to be portable, but it can't cut back on features. So when I found that the Yoga 730 offers below-average battery life and a shallow keyboard, I was disappointed. This laptop has strong performance, coming with Intel's 8th Gen CoreFull Review
