It's Mobile World Congress again, which means that it's time for companies to show off their latest and greatest products. Lenovo today announced the Yoga 730 and the Flex 14, its newest Windows 10 convertible laptops.
The Yoga 730 comes in 13- and 15-inch flavors, both of which include an eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. The 13-inch model offers integrated UHD Graphics 620, as you'd expect, but the 15-inch variant offers up to an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU. Indeed, there are very few convertibles that offer this level of graphics performance.
Obviously, that also means that the larger model is thicker and heavier. The 13-inch Yoga 730 comes in at 13.9-14.1mm thin and 2.46 pounds, while the 15-inch variant is 16.9-17.15mm and 4.16 pounds. The ports are different too, with the smaller model offering two Thunderbolt 3 ports and one USB 3.0 Type-A, and the larger one including two Type-A ports and one Type-C port, along with HDMI.
They can be configured with an FHD or UHD display, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB or 1TB of storage in the 13- and 15-inch models, respectively. There's also pen support, with the Active Pen 2 optional.
The Flex 14 is closer to the mid-range, as it's marketed as the Yoga 530 in other regions. Still, it includes an eighth-generation Core i7, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The display is a 14-inch FHD IPS LCD with Active Pen support, and the Active Pen 2 comes in the box.
Coming in at 17.6mm, Lenovo says that it's 11% thinner than its predecessor. There's no Thunderbolt 3 on this one though, as it includes one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A, HDMI, a 4-in-1 card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Both models of the Yoga 730 come in Iron Grey and Platinum Silver, and will be available in April starting at $879.99 and $899.99, respectively. The Flex 14 comes in Onyx Black in April, starting at $599.99.
