Lenovo Yoga 700 14” Review – The Versatile Convertible Laptop

Lenovo is really that popular with their 2 in 1 laptop. Here, we will find some good devices like Yoga 900 and even the most popular one like Thinkpad X1 that looks very promising in term of performance and design. Now, they are back again with affordable option that really interesting to get it closer.

The Yoga 700 is very versatile and could be a very good companion during the travel because of its small 11.6 screen that operate in many different modes. The system has 360 degrees hinge that would turn into traditional, tent, and even tablet mode. Any multimedia or personal work is easily done in this machine.

The performance and temperature is also wise thanks to its efficient processor. The processor later combined with 4 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD, and full HD display. Those are combinations that hardly found on this price print. Dou you think the device is really that worth to get? You are going to find it soon. We are going to see it closely and see its performance in many tests. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.

Design

The general construction that it brings is not so different in comparable with the previous model. The exterior like the lid and bottom of the base are designed in silver color that looks premium for some reasons despite of its plastic material. On the side of its base, there are rubberized textures during the operation. The silver hinges are strong and create nice contrast to the lid. I was easily able to open the lid with single hand, but might need extra work to do.

The quality is quite mix on this case. The build quality is not the best one I have seen on the similar price, but I really love the stability. The rest of thing like power button is not big problem where it does not feel wobble and have good pressure point. The battery is removable and could be swapped with new one whenever and wherever you want. The overall quality is great without any major issue.

Connectivity

Yoga 700 2Connectivity is quite limited where it only has 3 USB ports. There is only single USB 3.0 port while the two of them are USB 2.0. I really hope at least the company is able to give us one faster connector, but sadly it’s still not available. At least, the transfer data rate in moving file is not something to complain with the average speed for around 40 MB per second.

The SD card reader is placed on the left. The SD card could be another alternative option for storage since 256 GB is something that quietly small. It could be used as place for storing some data like videos, images, and even the application if it’s supported. The other alternative for application is using of portable app which is not requiring of installation process.

Keyboard And Display

The layout for keyboard is slightly narrower due its compact design. Almost all of the keys except for the standard one are placed bit narrower and I got some complaints on the directional keys that look pretty small. You are not getting the same typing experience, but once you get used, you will never have any problem. It might be not a great keyboard, but it’s good enough for editing documents or replying the email.

The laptop offers us a glossy 11.6 display in 1920×1080 resolution. The screen has very good pixel density which is around 190 PPI thanks to its small screen size. The images qualities are sharp and the colors are vivid. I really love the brightness and I have tested it in outdoor and the result is great. You do not have to set the brightness to the maximum just to use it. One thing that I should note here is the flickering. I did not really get it since the frequency is high.
