Overview

Lenovo Yoga 710

Lenovo Yoga 710 15-inch Review: Design, Specification and Performance: Until recently, you couldn’t find a premium 2-in-1 for under $1,000. However, the $750 Lenovo Yoga 710 15-inch is proof of how immediately that’s changing. For far less than a superb, this bend-back notebook punches over its price tag, competing with our favorite 2-in-1s, such because of the HP Spectre x360. The Yoga 710’s lovely display, responsive keyboard, and powerful performance make it an incredible large-screen 2-in-1 and a nice value.

Design

Lenovo Yoga 710

The Yoga 710 has a minimalist aesthetic with an all-black aluminum physique. The lid features a shiny Yoga logo in silver and Lenovo’s seal in gray, however, is otherwise plain. The hinges, which are silver on the 14-inch and 11-inch models of the 710, are a dark gunmetal gray. Starting the lid shows off the 15.6-inch 1080p display with an island-style keyboard, small bezel, and the trackpad.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Lenovo Yoga 710

I like the Yoga 710’s clicky and responsive keys. They’ve 1.4 millimeters of vertical travel, falling just under our preferred 1.5-mm minimum, however, require a powerful 59 grams of force to actuate.

The keyboard was set a little farther back into the deck than I would have favored. However, I still found the typing experience to be extremely comfortable.

The 4.1 x 2.7-inch touchpad was responding to Windows 10 gestures and navigation, together with switching among apps with three fingers and swiping down to reveal the desktop.

Display

The 15.6-inch, 1080p display on the Yoga produces crisp, bright photos. When I saw the trailer for Wonder Woman, blue sea and the Green trees on the island of Themyscira appeared lush and vivid. As Wonder Woman jumped via a window to surprise her enemies, I could make out every little shard of glass.

Graphics and Audio

Lenovo Yoga 710

The Lenovo Yoga 710 has a Nvidia 940MX GPU with 2 GB of VRAM. The Yoga 710 earned a score of 84,670 on the 3DMark Ice Storm Limitless graphics benchmark.

The speakers on the Yoga 710 15-inch are loud sufficient to fill a room. When I heard to Yellowcard’s “Your Denial, and For You,” the vocals sounded a bit hollow. However, the guitars, drums, and violin were all very clear.
