Lenovo Yoga 720 13.3" 2in1 16GB RAM, i7-8550u, 256GB SSD $1588 @ Harvey Norman

120

Pretty good price on the Yoga 720 as most ultrabook's with these specs tend to start over $2000 so worth considering. The yoga 920 is on sale with lesser specs for $100 cheaper, so it is up to you if you value the 920's higher build quality and battery over more RAM and a faster processor.

Can fully (and somewhat irritably) commend the yoga 720 for its build quality and value for money as I unfortunately just bought one (although it was $1350 so can't complain)

The Lenovo Yoga 720-13 13.3 inch 2-in-1 Laptop has all the tools you need to work efficiently while still offering the ability to be an excellent choice for leisure.

  • Great deal. TB3, 8550u, 16gb ram. Good desktop replacement if paired with a egpu.

    • Definitely, that's the plan with mine (even though its a lower specced model). It is 2 lane but there are many articles proving 2 lane still performs the same as 4 so all good!

  • Bought a spectre with 8gb 512gb ssd in bing lees Easter sale. Good deal this

    • Would you suggest 8GB or 16GB for a laptop? I have 16GB on desktop but I do more demanding things. Would 16GB be overkill?

      • Why is it bad

        • Didn't say bad. But if you don't need it, you can save money and go 8GB. Typically to get 16GB you also have to upgrade the SSD from 256GB to 512GB, though this laptop right here is a rare exception.

      • We have a small fleet of Hp Spectre X360s … most have 16GB and a few 8GBs. All have 512 SSDs. For some of our team where they have lots of stuff open and very content rich websites and very photo / video rich work + databases (ACT!) happening, then the 16GB machines are noticeably quicker vs the 8GB. I myself have an 8GB lappy for day to day normal use it is fine … though just with all normal stuff running 5GB is consumed. I (and much of the team) also use sleep and hibernate vs full shut down a lot. We notice memory creep seems to happen over time. The price is quickly forgotten with something if it just works slick.

    • Spectre's are very sleek and nice, but generally you're paying a bit of a premium for the brand, so it's more personal preference.

      Each brand seems to have 3 tiers of 2 in 1s (ie for Lenovo the yoga 520, 720, 920) and from my research the yoga 720 is the sweet point of price, performance and portability*. You can obviously get better in each category, but for me the spectre leans more towards HP's premium model.
      *based on cheapest non sale prices

      As for 8gb of RAM Vs 16gb the 8 GB will still be good for a few years but if you want more then 3 years of efficiency go for the 16gb. Windows can be a bit more liberal with more RAM so it runs faster, but currently no game (if you want an eGpu) requires more then 8gb of RAM and you will peak at around 70% use with a office usage.

      TL:DR this is worth paying the extra $150 for a 16gb of RAM and an i7, but anymore of a price gap stick with 8gb

  • You have to have at-least 2 USB-C cables plugged in if you work with an external monitor or eGPU as the TB3 port doesn't also support PD, hence wont charge the laptop. I find this a mild nuisance.

  • bear in mind that the new spectre series DO NOT HAVE ram slots - i.e. plan for the future when deciding your purchase on the spectre.

    The Yoga series is a bit convoluted but a general rule of thumb is that the 13 inch models are the ones with no ram slots (given the smaller footprint) whilst the 14 and 15 inch models would generally have soldered plus one ram slot or just one ram slot.

    Key being a ram slot future proofs your investment.

    I'm running an X220 (sandy bridge) laptop on win 10 pro with 16 gb and have no issues with multiple tabs of browsing and excel spreadsheets while streaming youtube vids.

    Also able to play PUBG given I bought a cheap 1030 nvidia with a pci riser card connected to the express card slot and i'm averaging 45 fps.
