Lenovo unveils new Yoga 700 laptop
Lenovo has unveiled a new premium-class convertible notebook that is called Yoga 700. The new notebook comes with four usage modes (laptop, stand, tent, tablet) and a chassis that is both thin and light, which makes the new Lenovo notebook perfect for people who are constantly on the go.
The new Yoga 700 is available as two options – the first one comes with an 11-inch display that makes it an ideal travel companion, while the second model has a larger 14-inch display that sits on top of more powerful hardware. In both cases, however, the displays work at Full HD resolution and offer IPS technology as well as up to 10 simultaneous touches. There also are two Dolby DS 1.0 Home Theater-certified stereo speakers for clear sound while working or having fun.
In the case of the 14-inch Yoga 700, the device can be equipped with up to Intel Core i7 Skylake processors, up to 8 GB of DDR3L memory and up to GeForce GT 940M graphics. In addition to this the 14-inch Yoga 700 model can be shipped with up to 256 GB of SSD storage for quick file transfers, almost instant program starting and more. Unfortunately Lenovo gives just a few details on the 11-inch model saying that it is 15.8 mm thin and that it weighs only 1.1 kilograms but we suspect there’s less powerful hardware inside compared to the 14-inch Yoga 700. The notebooks, however, are equipped with an ergonomically designed AccuType backlit keyboard that makes typing more comfortable and easier on eyes in dim environments. Next to this the new Yoga 700 notebooks have been designed for Windows 10 so you will not have any problems or performance issues with Microsoft’s latest operating system.
Lenovo asks for USD 649 for its 11-inch Yoga 700 and USD 799 for the more powerful 14-inch model.
