Comment

Model: The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 is a powerful mobile business machine with four screen position modes that allow you to tackle your work with comfort. With a thin and lightweight design, portability is not compromised, while productivity is extended with the long battery life. Depending on the situation users may choose from the usual laptop mode, stand mode, tablet or tent modes to ensure proper ergonomics. The device comes with a 14 inch FHD IPS display panel with Active Pen technology. Colors and clarity are superb with responsive multi-touch capability. Users can even opt for a glossy or anti-glare display surface.

Fully customizable, the operating system can be selected from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 and various hardware configurations are possible. At the highest end of the configuration spectrum are an Intel Core i7-5500U processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, up to 8 GB DDR3L RAM and a built in Intel GPU. There are multiple storage options as well, a 128 GB, 512 GB SSD or a 256 GB SSD with OPAL 2.0 technology. The full aluminium chassis is beautifully curved and comes in graphite black. Other features on the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 consist of the Active Pen, an HD webcam, a spill-resistant keyboard, two USB 3.0 ports and stereo speakers. The laptop sports a 4-cell Lithium Polymer battery with up to 8 hours of battery life.

Series:

For those unfamiliar with the Lenovo Yoga brand, these flexible devices allow users to fold back its screen 360 degrees, turning a laptop configuration into a tablet configuration. For those who were familiar with the previous iterations of the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga, having the keyboard mashing against the hand in tablet mode was widely considered a design flaw. Now, the newest 12 inch Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga has a mechanism that will extract the keys back down into the body when the screen is pushed back into tablet mode, so that the keys aren't raised, and won't be able to be depressed. Lenovo has named this innovation a lift and lock system.

Weighing in at 1.578 kg, this device is on the heavy side for tablet, which is why having the built in kickstand (the keyboard) will come in handy. Users can stand their screen up in tent mode or stand mode to move the keyboard out of the way. For a portable notebook, it is light and the 12.5 inch IPS screen is in Full HD which should ensure a good viewing experience. Under the hood is the 4th generation Intel processor which should allow for good battery life. The Haswell chips are available in configurations that go up to i7 which should facilitate a wide range of user preferences. A good selection of ports will allow for a variety of business and entertainment uses.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
