    Only drawback I encountered is that the Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station only supports Lenovo devices up to 65w, the Yoga 720-15 needs 135w.

    So USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 charging for the Yoga 720-15 is not supported with any Lenovo Docks available.

    I believe USB Power Delivery is restricted to 100 watt, so no USB PD device will be able to properly power the Yoga 720 15. I've been looking at thinner 135W and 200W power adapters, and there are a couple that are slightly thinner, but not enough to make me want to buy them over the original adapter.

    hello guys,

    what battery life are you guys getting on the FHD model? Does the 7700HQ CPU really kill the battery life?

    Hi. I'm thinking of getting this but I would like to know if Wacom Feel drivers can be installed on this one. I read that Samsung Notebook Pro 9 (2017) doesn't support the drivers. I think it's needed for older apps like Photoshop CS2. Would you recommend this for art? I'm stuck between Notebook Pro 9 and this one.

    Thanks

    Yes the Feel driver installs on the Yoga. With the Bamboo Ink pen, the 720 is the AES device that comes closest to EMR performance .

    As in, they just stuck an 8gb sodimm in the free slot for you? That makes sense, although that would mean that the language in the listings is not quite consistent. Which isn't that surprising.

    Still no proof either way whether 32gb of ram is possible.
