Lenovo Yoga 710 80V4000GUS 2-in-1 14″ Touch Laptop
Silver Lenovo Yoga 710 80V4000GUS is a late 2016 release, convertible 2-in-1 laptop with a 360-degree flip and fold design, a 14 inch Full HD backlit touch display, a seventh generation energy efficient and powerful Intel i5 processor, large and fast SSD storage and memory, long battery life, backlit keyboard and more. So the technical specs include the Quarter 3 2016 release dual-core Intel i5-7200U processor (3MB cache) at 2.50GHz to 3.10GHz speeds with turbo boost and hyper threading for two cores to work with four threads in parallel, 8GB DDR4 memory at 2133MHz speed (the newest variety), 256GB Solid State Drive with both speed and size and the 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system. Yoga 710 is not designed as a gaming machine to play the latest demanding titles as it doesn’t include a mid-range or higher discrete graphics card but the built-in Intel Iris 620 graphics that is sufficient for general multimedia needs- internet surfing and basic photo editing. And it will let you play basic games like Minecraft at high settings and more demanding titles at low settings.
Lenovo Yoga 710 weighs 3.4 pounds with the measurements of 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.7 inches- thin and lightweight and very portable with a long battery life of around real 8-9 hours from its 4-cell lithium-polymer battery. It doesn’t come with a DVD Optical Drive, a USB Type-C port or RJ-45 for wired internet but reasonable connectivity for its slim chassis and size, including the 2 x USB 3.0 ports, dual-band 802.11ac wireless with Bluetooth 4.0 to transfer media wirelessly with the Bluetooth enabled devices, a Media Card Reader that supports SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC formats and a micro HDMI output, a Headphone/microphone combo jack and a high definition webcam with dual microphones. The keyboard is backlit for comfy typing in dim lighting, doesn’t include a 10-key numeric pad but a good size touchpad. The fan is quite silent and the unit stays cool even after long hours of internet browsing or gaming.
You can expect sharp and clear picture on the 14-inch LED-backlit FHD touchscreen with 1920×1080 pixel resolution and the touch display makes it easy to navigate through the Windows apps. It has the IPS panel and the screen rotates easily and conveniently around its sturdy hinge so you can use it in tablet, tent and stand modes as well as in regular laptop mode. The latest release i5-7200U is a fast and powerful enough processor with a Passmark benchmark score of just over 4700 at the time of this review and this will depend very much on what you use the computer for, but overall pretty much anyone can use it for both the daily and very demanding tasks. There is no slow mechanical hard drive but a high-speed SSD with an also good storage capacity of 256GB and you will open your files much faster and the system overall feels snappy. 8GB is plenty of memory for multitasking and is placed on the single slot available in the system and you can certainly replace it with a larger RAM if you’re an advanced user in need of more memory. Overall the Lenovo Yoga 710 is a sleek and modern laptop with a great build quality, long battery life, and high performance that will let you do pretty much anything other than advanced gaming and you can’t go wrong with it.
