Lenovo is updating its Yoga line of convertible notebooks with new Yoga 530 and Yoga 730 models.

Each version is available with up to an 8th-gen Intel Core i7 processor and features a full-sized keyboard, a touchscreen, a 360-degree hinge, and optional support for a Lenovo Active Pen 2 with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The Yoga 730 is available with a 13 inch or 15 inch display, while the Yoga 530 is a more affordable model with a 14 inch display and a few less bells and whistles. For some reason the Yoga 14 will be marketed under the Lenovo Flex 14 name in the United States.

All the new laptops feature fingerprint readers with Windows Hello support, but the Yoga 730 has some extra features including Thunderbolt 3 ports, far-field microphones for use with the Cortana or Alexa voice assistants, and an optional 4K display.

  1. G-search on this model indicates, that it has a SODIMM slot for memory expansion (yoga 730-13ikb, 81CU-model). If that’s so, it’s one of the best ultrabooks/2in1 at the moment.
    I’m also hoping that PWM-dimming in display will finally go away, contrast is above 1000 and battery is at least 50Wh.

  2. Thats odd, other news outlets say that 15″ model will have 8Gb RAM max, which is odd, as well as that it wont have Thunderbolt port.
    Now, if they added numpad on 15″ model, it would be great!
    Only downsides in buying Lenovo are that its Chinese state company that often ships with malware/spyware(Chinese thing, I suppose?) and that in my home country they have 6mo battery, 2y laptop warranty, while Dell and Asus offer 12mo battery and 3y laptop warranties standart.
