LENOVO YOGA 720 15 inch 2017 - Reviews

The reviews are out and tested the TB3 with eGPU too

Testing the TB3 with eGPU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTHvPmrt9CU

There's an error in mentioning that the YOGA 15 has 4xPCIe lanes which was corrected in the comments section above in the video and the link below by the reviewer. The YOGA 15 comes with only 2xPCIe lanes.

Some notes

1) The reviews were done with a FHD display and the battery life was quoted at about 5 - 6 hrs. Imagine if it's the 4K model what would be its battery life?

2) It's not possible to charge the YOGA 15 using an external battery bank through the YOGA's USB-C port as tested by the male reviewer in his TB3 test with eGPU

3) If you notice carefully the YOGA's ac charger is pretty big and it comes with a rectangular charging port on the laptop. Looks like using a proprietary charging pin.

I think cannot buy the 4K model unless you want to carry that big ac adapter leh

Just have a feel of it

4K screen is great

Screen flexes a lot when touched as compared to DELL XPS 15 9560. Well, can't have stiff screen here since it's a convertible.

Big and heavy ac adapter about 770 gm. Total weight will be 2.77Kg inclusive of the laptop
