15.6 inch Full HD Touch Lenovo Yoga 710 15
Lenovo Yoga 710 15 is the 15.6 inch higher performance version with a Skylake i7 processor of the 710 14 2-in-1 we’ve reviewed recently. It is designed as both a powerful laptop and a flexible tablet around the flip and fold design 360 degree rotating hinge for video streaming, internet browsing, light to mid-range gaming and even multimedia editing or heavy multitasking as it can handle most tasks other than smoothly and you’ll have a comfy position no matter what you do. Ultra low voltage sixth generation dual core Intel i7-6500U (4MB cache) has a speed of 2.5GHz up to 3.1GHz with turbo and hyper threading (2 cores and 4 threads), high amount of 16GB DDR4 memory at 2133MHz fast speed in one slot for all the multitasking you want, ultra fast 256GB Solid State Drive for both speed and storage size and Windows 10 64-bit operating system. 15.6 inch Full HD 10-point multitouch display with IPS panel offers clear and sharp visuals at 1080p resolution, 300 nit brightness and wide viewing angles and can also be used in stand and tent modes as well. It has the premium quality JBL stereo speakers with Dolby Audio for very loud and clear, immersive sound with deep bass for your entertainment and games. 1280 x 720 pixel resolution integrated webcam offers decent picture quality when you’re capturing still photos or chatting live.
Keyboard is backlit for working or playing comfortably in dim light or dark, AccuType keys are nice to type with but it doesn’t have a 10-key numpad but a large and functional touchpad. Yoga 15 has a very solid construction with its aluminium chassis that also makes it look premium and beautiful (but attracts fingerprints), is very thin and lightweight- weighs 4.41 pounds and measures 14.1 x 9.6 x 0.7 inches- has the size of a 14 inch machine thanks to the thinner frame. There is no DVD/CD Drive, no USB Type-C and no Ethernet for wired internet but comes with an HDMI output, 802.11ac wireless for internet at very high speeds, the latest Bluetooth 4.1, two USB 3.0 ports, a Micro HDMI port, an SD Card Reader and a Combo audio jack. Graphics card is the dedicated Nvidia GeForce 940 MX (benchmark 1029) with 2GB GDDR5 dedicated video memory that will let you play the games of 2016 at low to medium settings at WXGA 1200×800 pixel resolution at up to 30fps and the Intel HD 520 built-in graphics (benchmark 763) shares the memory with the main processor. 4-cell lithium polymer battery offers long life up to 8 hours on a single charge despite the power of the machine and the quality of visuals with FHD screen. 16GB DDR4 is well beyond what most computer customers will need in terms of memory and is the maximum amount supported by this system. 256GB is quite a lot of storage space and with super speed of SSD technology but if you think you will need to save lots more files then you can take advantage of Cloud. With such high specs, solid build with aluminium chassis and great features and flexibility of a convertible machine is offered at a nicely reduced price at the time of this review.
