Yoga 730 (Laptop Computer) by Will Baker
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Digital and Electronic Devices Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Today many laptops can fold backwards into a tablet, but their designs are centered around laptop mode usage, and look misaligned when folded into a tablet. Our vision was to create a device that is equally comfortable as a tablet or a laptop, and maintains its form integrity in any mode- a true multi-mode device.
Creativity
The sleek, minimal form of the YOGA 730 presents one of the simplest, most pure laptop designs available. Ultra slim display borders around a comparably large screen enable users who need more viewing area to stick with the travel friendly 13” footprint. Weighing only 2.7 lbs, the 730 is a joy to hold one-handed in tablet mode. When the YOGA 730 folds into tablet mode the top edge of the screen lines up perfectly with the edge of the bottom half, creating one cohesive form.
Design Challenges
Will Baker did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Yoga 730 Laptop Computer.
Production Technology
The body of the 730 is crafted from stamped sheet aluminum. After stamping, the aluminum body is sand blasted and anodized. The polished, color-matched logo rests flush with the lid of the laptop inside a CNC-machined recess.
