Neoscore* 67%
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Very good battery life
  • Decent performance for a 15.6-inch convertible
  • 3-in-1 adapter included
  • Low-resolution display with low brightness level
  • Only one USB Type-C port

Summary

The 15.6-inch Lenovo Yoga C740 gives you the look and build quality of a premium laptop for under $1,000. Compared to its predecessor, the Lenovo Yoga 730-15IKB, the C740 appears to benefit from a more potent cooling solution. If you're looking for the super-fine detail of a QHD or 4K display, however, you'll have to look elsewhere.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The 15.6-inch Lenovo Yoga C740 is an excellent pick for everyday home office or schoolwork. The $1,000 model I tested is worth saving up for if you can. It has twice the storage, more memory (which is soldered on and can't be upgraded later) and a faster processor.

Pros[**]
  • Long battery life for a two-in-one
  • Good performance for work and entertainment
  • Good keyboard and touchpad
Cons[**]
  • More memory soldered on

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C740-15IML is a laptop-tablet hybrid. Unlike its predecessor Lenovo Yoga 730-15IKB, the device does not include a dedicated GPU. Lenovo has cut the Thunderbolt 3 functionality from the second available USB Type-C port. Since the warranty package only includes a bring-in service, users will have to send in the device for repairs.

Pros[**]
  • Matte IPS display
  • Good battery life
  • Fast Wi-Fi
  • Thunderbolt 3
  • USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 3
Cons[**]
  • Only one USB Type-A port
  • Only one year of warranty

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The 15-inch version of the Lenovo Yoga C740 starts at $779.99; $1,099.99 as tested. The laptop can be opened up like a laptop, and then opened up even further to let you position it as a tent on a flat surface. It lacks the option for a display resolution above full HD (1,920 by 1,080 pixels)

Pros[**]
  • Compact and light for a 2-in-1 convertible
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Somewhat grainy video feed

pcworld[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 58%
Reviewers from Pcworld have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C740 15 is the kind of laptop Lenovo should have knocked out of the park. Its battery life and screen brightness are excellent for a 15-inch laptop. The weaker CPU allows the C740 to use a USB-C charger, rather than the proprietary cable Lenovo uses in more powerful laptops.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent battery life and screen brightness
  • Excellent performance for a 15-inch laptop
  • Dolby Atmos software optimizations
Cons[**]
  • Lackluster graphics performance

The Lenovo Yoga C740 is a 2-in-1 laptop with a Full HD touchscreen. It is powered by Intel's 10th Gen Core i7 processor, though Lenovo also sells an i5 version. The laptop is compatible with a range of styluses and can be folded flat into a tablet for sketching ideas and taking quick notes.
