Lenovo Yoga 710

I often get the chance to handle PCs before they are released but it’s rare that I take such a liking to a product after so long testing it. After three months with a production sample the Lenovo Yoga 710 has become my buddy in-home and on-the-go and it has proven to me how much I like single-unit convertibles over separable tablet 2-in-1’s like the Surface Pro 3. The fanless (silent) light (2.3 pounds) and small (11 inch full HD IPS screen) Lenovo Yoga 710 is now available for pre-order at $549 in the USA (Lenovo) which is an excellent price assuming it has the same fast SSD as the one I’m using here – a Core m5 version with 4GB and 256 GB of SATA SSD. I hope and pray that Lenovo don’t drop an eMMC storage module into the [80TX000BUS] entry-level model.

Here’s a bullet-point review of the Lenovo Yoga 710 that I’m using now. [80TX000CUS]

  • Keyboard – Great but no backlight
  • Touchpad – single-unit integrated buttons. 7/10.
  • Performance – Solid. Up with the best Core m5 implementations.
  • Battery life – 40 Wh battery is providing 4 – 5 hours in my sample. Expect +20% in the retail version.
  • Screen – Excellent. This isn’t ‘reference’ quality but it’s got good contrast and color to my eyes.
  • Ports – Basic. 1 X USB 3.0 1 x Micro HDMI. 1 X headset. No removable storage slot. (SD.)
  • WiFi – Strong AC but not  multi-channel. I have 5 Ghz band support here. That could change in the retail version.
  • SSD speed – Very fast. I note that the 128 GB version I tested at CeBIT had even better SSD performance.

Watch the overview video of the Lenovo Yoga 710 (90 seconds done for the UMPCPortal Facebook channel – please subscribe) below which might get you into the mood to ask questions. Please do.

As I’m likely to keep this pre-production sample of the Lenovo Yoga 710 for a while longer I can answer any detailed questions you might have apart from really detailed performance test although I’ll have a  go at those too and give you the results with a disclaimer. Don’t forget to check out these posts first though. There’s a ton of information in there for you.

Here’s the quick video. A longer video is embedded below. Note that I have a sample Lenovo Yoga 710 on loan from Intel. Performance and specifications can vary between pre-production samples and retail. I am not permitted to do a full review on this production sample. That makes sense!

Lenovo Yoga 710 11 is one of the best subnotebooks.

I’ve had some time with a production sample of the Lenovo Yoga 710 and while I can’t bring you a full review there’s a lot I can tell you about it. The Yoga 710 is an 11.6-inch ultramobile Windows convertible (laptop-style with 360-degree hinge) running on a Core M CPU. Bloggers had unlimited access to it at CeBIT earlier this month and were able to draw a lot of conclusions. Here’s my summary review.

The Lenovo Yoga 710 is incredibly slick, has a great screen and the keyboard is working very well, at least for me. It’s Macbook-like for sure but not quite the fasion-piece and it’s likely to be offered at a lower price, according to reports.  For me it’s one of the most important subnotebooks of the year.

Note: All information here based on the pre-production sample shown at CeBIT.

Lenovo Yoga 710 testing, benchmarks.

What a nice surprise! The Lenovo Yoga 710, announced last month and not due on the market for a while, is here on the desk in front of me at CeBIT. At first glance I wasn’t sure what it was. Thin, light, great screen, good keyboard and a Core m5. A look into the hardware revealed the Lenovo 710. Take a look at the images, the video and the notes below.

Cinebench R11.5 multi CPU 1.52 points.
Cinebench R11.5 OpenGL 14.35
Max sequential disk read speed: over 450 MB/s

The keyboard is quite good, as is the screen. The only issue I can see now is the lack of ports. You’ll need to carry a bunch of USB adaptors!

I’m a fan of the Lenovo Miix 700 but this Yoga 710 might be better. I’ll be doing some more testing over the next few days so stay tuned.
