in this post I write about my experience with the newest Lenovo Yoga 720-12IKB with a 12" display presented at the IFA 2017. It´s a chic 2-in-1 convertible that seamlessly adapts to your needs on the go.
Notice: It´s even a touch smaller then the former Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB with its 13,3 inch-IPS-Touchscreen.
It’s only 1.15 kg light and 15.75 mm thin—with all the power and flexibility of Intel Core i processing.
It features a instant fingerprint login and digital pen support and the dynamic home theater experience of Dolby Atmos® and FHD resolution.
In mineral grey...
also availiable in onyx black color....
The keyboard feels very comfortable, has got more space for key travel than my Yoga 900 and is a huge step forward, when it comes to your writing exprience and it offers a big shift key...
It´s also ready for taking notes with Lenovo´s Active Pen 2 a Bluetooth enabled Active Capacity Pen.
It can support 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity to provide a natural pen and paper experience when you sketch and jot down notes. The new Active Pen 2 also features one top button and two built-in side buttons for self configuration, a USB pen holder for storage and three replacement pen tips for longer use.
Active Pen 2 specs:
Paper Like Writing
2000 Hours Battery Life
Metallic & Diamond Cutting
Up to 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity
See the comparison of both Active Pen (Top) and Active Pen 2 (Bottom) below:
I have tested both on the new Miix 520 and I can tell you the writing experience has improved massively against the older version of Lenovo´s Active Pen.
Its´almost like writing on a paper and very different what you experienced with the former Active Pen. Which felt like writing on glas instead of a paper.
Unfortunately the Active Pen 2 did not work on my good old Yoga 900 or the later Yoga 910.
But on the newest Miix 520 and Yoga 720 (Vibes and Star Wars Editions included ) of course.
