Lenovo Yoga 730 15in for $1040CAD, good purchase?

https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/laptops/yoga/700-series/Yoga-730-15/p/81CU000UUS#tab-currentmodels

I bought it from Lenovo Canada's website on cyber monday for $917CAD before tax, $1040CAD after tax.
I'm not sure if this is a good deal, or if there is a better alternative. I am a student and I need a 2in1 for taking notes. 
Budget: around 1k, 800-1200CAD

 

It has a pretty budget screen with low brightness and flickers in cameras.
The battery life is also apparently low.

For college. Taking notes, web browsing, editing pdfs. Gaming will be done on desktop.
Max weight 2kg
Min Battery life: 6hrs

Looks fine, good buy assuming the build quality is good and not cheap plastic

Usage? Preferred max weight in kg/lbs and min battery life in hours?

If no gaming then why a GTX 1050

 

Any preference on display size and display quality?

13in or 15in,  1080 is just fine.

As for GTX 1050, I don't really need it, but this was the laptop with the nice pricing. 
It costs $1170CAD now.

With good sRGB IPS:

HP Spectre x360 13 - soldered RAM

Lenovo Thinkpad L380 Yoga, upgrade SSD after purchase

Lenovo Yoga 720 13 81C3005SUS - soldered RAM

Acer Spin 5 13 SP513-52N-530R - soldered RAM

 

With low sRGB IPS:

HP Envy x360 15-cn0008ca

HP Envy x360 15-cp0008ca with SSD upgrade - inconsistent battery life

Lenovo Flex 5 14 - low sRGB IPS

Lenovo Flex 5 15 with SSD upgrade

HP Pavilion x360 14-cd1008ca - battery a bit small

 

Only get Yoga 730 15 if you really need the GPU power, don't mind the OKish battery life and extra heat output
