As some of you may have seen, Lenovo have a 15% off sale. There are some really nice prices to be had here. The last offer that this model was on was £674.99, so this is already £37.50 cheaper that that one.

I posted the C360 the other day at £519.99 and the extra here seems worth it if you can stretch. If not, the c630 offer was still great for what you get anyway.

What are the key differences between the two then?

This one comes with Windows Installed, as opposed to Chrome OS
This Yoga c740 has an i5-10210U - The c630 has an i5-8250U
256GB Storage instead of the 128GB on the C630
Active Pen - No pen on the C630

CPU Differences:
  • Both are 4 core CPUs
  • Base frequency is the same on both chips at 1.60GHz
  • The i5-10210U has a larger Cache by 2mb (8mb total) / 8250 is 6mb total
  • i5-10210U Single Core Boost is 4.20GHz / i5-8250 is 3.40GHz
  • i5-10210U All Core Boost 3.40Ghz / i5-8250 is 2.30Ghz
There is an i7-10510U / 8GB RAM / 512GB modeals for £764.99 if you want to check that out too - That's also on the 'Get Deal' Link

Does the pen sit inside the laptop on this model?
It may be too early to tell in terms of real-world performance, but early benchmarks put the chip below the Ryzen 3500U.
Great price, 3-4 weeks before shipping unfortunately.
I wouldn't be too concerned about early performance figures for the new chips, real world they'll be great.
I use an 8th gen i5 Lenovo 920 most days, absolutely brilliant machine.

Under 2kg for a 15in laptop is seriously impressive.
What's the build quality like?

I bought the i7 Yoga for something like £700 which in many respects was a good deal however.. the hinge was always a bit stiff when opening and closing - I wasn't too fussed about the tablet option - and over time the screen/lid weakened, eventually cracked and broke through the screen.

I now have a very small desktop Yoga PC which I have to say works pretty well.
"Thanks to the high clock speeds, the processor performance of the i5-10210U is very good for its class. It should outperform the Whiskey Lake i5-8365U slightly and also Ice Lake i5 processors if the cooling and TDP settings are not limiting."

In simpler terms this is "liptick on a pig edition" cpu. Intel did what they're doing since Sandybridge. Slight clock speed increase and model no change.

Don't get impressed too much. This is Lenovo we are talking about. Its probably light because they design this with half the stuff compared to others like single channel ram, single heat pipe heatsink.
This has a VESA 400 screen rather than IPS. Is there much noticeable difference between the two?

I think this just means that screen meets the vesa displayhdr 400 standard. It is most likely an IPS screen.
Ordered. Thanks OP.

Might be wrong and better check with Lenovo first.
UK models does not have VESA400 HDR 500nits display.

That's pretty cheeky advertising on the Lenovo product page, explicitly states:
'...Furthering Yoga’s famous 2-in-1 versatility, the C740 also boasts a HDR touchscreen...',
if mine turns up with no HDR screen (which I doubt it will) it's going back.

It wont have it. Lenovo uses shady 'up to' tactics, but the up to model are so rare it may as well not exist. It will be just be a standard 1920x1080 display

'Furthering Yoga’s famous 2-in-1 versatility, the C740 also boasts a HDR touchscreen, a Dolby Atmos™ speaker system, and a webcam privacy shutter for safe and mobile entertainment.' Taken straight from the product description.
... Pretty poor form if it doesn't boast an HDR touchscreen (etc), it's not even asterisked. You're probably right though it'll just have a standard IPS panel... I'll just send it back.
Got mine today, terrible grey IPS, none-HDR screen.
Going straight back.
