Physical Overview

Lenovo's box is simple, and packaging is simple and effective.

Accessories include AC/DC power adapter and manuals. The AC/DC adapter is rated at 20v at 3.25A, so it's a 65W adapter.

The top and bottom are made of a composite close in resemblance to aluminum. The notebook uses a dual-hinge design that allows for sturdy 360-degree rotation. The bottom of the notebook features a large rubber grip at the rear and two smaller ones at the front. We can find the intake and speaker vents on the bottom of the notebook.

The top of the notebook is slightly longer than the bottom so you can easily grip the display. The rear of the unit features the exhaust vents. The right side on the notebook features the power button, microSD card slot, USB 3.0 port, and Kensington lock slot. The left side of the notebook features a DC input jack, HDMI port, charging USB 3.0 port, type-C USB 3.0 port, and headphone/mic combo jack.

The QWERTY keyboard features standard sized keys with little key travel distance. We see that Lenovo hasn't swapped the function and control keys as they sometimes do, and we found the typing experience to be a pleasurable one. Unlike some of the more expensive Yoga products, the keyboard does not retract into the body when you rotate the display.

The material surrounding the keyboard and touchpad is brushed aluminum.

The notebook also features a fingerprint sensor for added ease of use.

The display is vibrant, and the keyboard lighting is decent, but you won't really notice it if in a lit room.

The Lenovo Active Pen works well and comes with a clip that sticks in a USB port for travel.
