lenovo yoga 700 Review

In the 2-in-1 convertible laptop market, the Lenovo Yoga 700 is a solid choice for a lower-end model. It has everything you need to do your day-to-day work, including a 6th-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM.

The display isn't the best in the world, but it's a competent full HD 1920 x 1080 glossy touchscreen with 700:1 contrast and good black levels. Color gamut is below the competition, though, with less than 99% sRGB coverage.


The Yoga 700's i5-6200U processor isn't the fastest we've tested, but it should do well in most workloads thanks to its 14nm Skylake design. It scored 5,855 in our Geekbench 3 overall system performance test, which is a touch better than the Satellite Radius 14 (Intel Core i3-5100U) and a bit faster than the HP Spectre x360 (Intel Core i5-6200U).

Keyboard and Touch Screen

Like all Lenovo Yoga notebooks, the Yoga 700 has a chiclet keyboard that's easy to use, but a little thin for my liking. It also has a row of handy hotkeys along the top of the keyboard, which gives you quick access to certain system settings, like screen brightness and volume.

Other features include a micro HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports, and the standard 4-in-1 card reader. There's also a Lenovo recovery button and battery indicator light.

If you're looking for a low-cost convertible Ultrabook with a touchscreen, the Yoga 700 is a good option. The price is right, it's got all the necessary specs and it's well built.
