Lenovo did not fail to launch its new laptops at the MWC. The company showcased not only one but four devices, including a tablet that doubles as a laptop.

The Mobile World Congress is not limited only to smartphones and tablets, that's why we saw some laptops that made their appearance at the recently-finished annual event, including the ones from Lenovo. In fact, the company launched four new laptops, the Yoga 720, Flex 5, Yoga 520 and IdeaPad Miix 320.

Yoga 720

Yoga 720 comes in either a 13-inch or 15-inch 4K display and powered by Intel's latest and greatest Core i7 processor. The laptop runs on Windows 10 and is the biggest and the most convertible laptop among the four due to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The device measures 14.3mm in thickness and weighs 1.3kg. Its 4K UHD variant offers 8 hours battery life while the other version with a Full-HD screen will last up to 9 hours of use.

It is powered by the same Core i7 processor and also runs Windows 10 OS. It carries the price tag of USD 859.
