Neoscore* 0%
Pros**
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Very good battery life
  • Decent performance for a 15.6-inch convertible

Cons**
  • 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.

Sentiment Score[*] 61%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Intel UHD Graphics 620 is the sole graphics chip of the Lenovo Yoga C740-15IML. Unlike its predecessor Lenovo Yoga 730-15IKB, the device does not include a dedicated GPU. While the integrated Intel GPU is able to fully exhaust its capabilities thanks to dual-channel RAM, its potential is still very limited. Users who wish to play demanding games would be better served by a laptop with a dGPU.

  • Good battery life
  • Good speakers
Cons[**]

3D rendering and video encoding) was also good, though not class-leading. At more than 13 hours of video playback in our test, it didn't last quite as long as the Spectre x360 13's impressive 18 hours. Despite its potentially limited physical flexibility, the Yoga C740 is still an excellent laptop in its own right.

Pros[**]
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Solid performance
  • Excellent webcam privacy filter
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • No built-in stylus
  • No Thunderbolt 3

Sentiment Score[*] 72%
Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
Once a laptop pushes into the four-pound range, you should start expecting some performance payoffs. The Lenovo Yoga C740 15's Intel Core i7-10510U and integrated UHD 620 graphics aren't a great combo for either. Gaming performance is an unsurprising weak point. The clear redeeming factor here is battery life.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Slim and light
  • Good battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre audio quality
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port

The Lenovo Yoga C740 has a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display. The laptop is compatible with a range of styluses and can be folded flat into a tablet for sketching ideas and taking quick notes. It is powered by Intel’s 10th Gen Core i7 processor, though Lenovo also sells an i5 version. One full charge offers around 15 hours of battery or 11.5 hours with HDR.
