Yoga 720 is a 2-in-1 Laptop and has slightly better build. However, this new Ideapad 720S series are superior to every aspect than previous 710S series. If you want a traditional laptop like XPS 13 or something like that but don't want to spend that much and want more graphics horse power than you cannot get wrong with this.

Suppose I get the yoga 720 same spec for 900$ do you think it's worth it to the yoga or this one ideapad ?

Should I just wait for a better deal or is this a good deal to buy now

It entirely depends upon your need. As I mentioned earlier, if you want a 2-in-1, Touchscreen, Active Pen Support then Yoga 720 is the way to go. But if you are considering a traditional laptop, you cannot be wrong with this one.

Another thing, Yoga 720 has 13.3" version with 8th Gen processor and that does not come with any dedicated Graphics card whereas this one does come with one, MX150. So, if you are planning to do works which requires more GPU power than Intel integrated GPU, like moderate gaming, Adobe Premiere Pro, Video Encoding and editing etc., then you should consider this over Yoga 720 13.

Stick to T, P, or X series. Why spend $900 on latest specs when the laptop (like ALL consumer laptops) will inevitably break in a year?

In what sense are thinkpads any better? They aren't as durable as they used to be. You do realize that a t480 with this configuration would cost like twice as much though right? Plus this laptop is housed in an aluminum unibody, which is way more durable than any other material used for laptops.

I never suggested the 80 series. A T470 will cost about the same and last you a decade. You'll lose 10% if the performance but have a best in class keyboard and a machine that won't start falling apart as soon as the warranty is up.

The aluminum body doesn't mean anything if it's not carried into the chassis. It's also not the best material as you claim. The magnesium and carbon fiber reinforced plastics used in the thinkpads are far superior Long story short, the thinkpads pass mil-spec and this does not.

You will loose 40% of the performance if you go with a model with 7th Generation "U" series CPU, in multi-threaded workload. Don't spread wrong information here. And, as per your suggestion, nobody should buy high end consumer laptops and should only buy Professional Business laptops right? If that is the case then nobody should buy Dell's high end Inspiron or XPS series or HP's Spectre or Envy series, right? People should only buy Dell Precision, HP Pro or Elite Book and Lenovo Thinkpad series.
There is a reason why there is a distinction between Business Series and Consumer level laptops and it is entirely false that all consumer laptops have infirior build quality compared to a similarly configured Business model.

Lol what?? Since when do consumer grade laptops start falling apart after warranty? Such falsities. Why would you compare a t470 with a last gen intel cpu that is SIGNIFICANTLY behind in performance compared to an 8th gen modern intel cpu? Not to mention a t470 at 800 will not have dedicated graphics like this ideapad 720s here. Ideapad and t470 both have chiclet keyboards so what's your point here? Also, carbon fiber reinforced plastic is at, at best, only on pair with metal. Thinkpad casings crack, aluminum casing on laptops rarely ever crack. Your whole argument is so biased and invalid... This is a heck of a deal for a solid laptop with amazing specs and build quality. Stop undermining it.
