Summary

Lenovo Yoga C740-14 is one of the better convertible laptops in its mid-range category. It's hundreds of dollars less than both the Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 and Asus ZenBook Flip 14. The smooth aluminum surfaces and clean look seem inspired by more expensive Ultrabooks like the Yoga C940 or the HP Spectre series.
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 Lenovo Yoga C740 is available in 14- and 15.6-inch sizes. It falls in the middle of the current Yoga two-in-one convertible lineup with the C940 above and 13.3-inch C640 below. The C740 has a comfortable keyboard with two levels of backlighting.

notebookcheck[2]

Sentiment Score[*] 66%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
When compared to the pricier Yoga C940-14, some physical features had to be cut in order to reach a lower price. The hinges, for example, no longer house speakers and they even feel slightly weaker this around. The keyboard here is closer to a cheaper IdeaPad offering than on a renowed ThinkPad.

  • Good battery life
  • Good keyboard and touchpad performance

pcmag[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C740 has a quad-core, eight-thread, 1.6GHz (4.2GHz turbo) processor. It's got ample power for spreadsheets, not enough for juggling workstation-sized datasets. Its screen is as good as any mainstream-laptop 1080p panel I've seen.

  • Sleek design
  • Solid performance
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • No SD card slot
