The Lenovo Yoga 730 13 is an ultra-portable and fast convertible laptop. This 2-in-1 laptop / tablet hybrid has a sharp 13.3″ Full HD touch wide-viewing angle display, mounted on a pair of 360-degree hinges. Besides finger touch input, Lenovo has provided pressure-sensitive active digitizer pen option and an ergonomic keyboard with backlight. The aluminum-clad notebook has very slim display bezels, which reduce the footprint of the device. Combine that with its 0.6″ thin profile and a weight of only 2.6 pounds, and you get a very compact 2-in-1 PC travel companion. Inside, the Yoga 730 13 packs the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U or i7-8550U quad-core processors with great computing performance and entry-level Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, 8 or 16 Gigabytes of RAM, and up to 512 Gigabytes of fast solid state drive storage. The battery of 48 WHr is decently capacious. It provides “up to 11.5 hours” of battery life, according to Lenovo.

Another welcomed feature is a built-in fingerprint reader.
