Hands-on the Lenovo Yoga 720-12IKB with 12" Display and Active Pen 2 Support - IFA 2017

Hello, 

 

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:

 

Bluetooth Connectivity

Paper Like Writing

2000 Hours Battery Life

Metallic & Diamond Cutting

Anti-Accident Clicks

Configurable Buttons

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 Smiley Very Happy ) of course.
