Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 700-11ISK
Weak cooling. The small Lenovo Yoga 700 is a portable and very versatile companion thanks to its 11.6-inch screen and different operating modes. However, there are problems in terms of input devices and the passive cooling solution, because the processor cannot utilize its full potential.

One word of caution, though, because the price only includes a 128GB SSD. In my experience, that isn’t enough for a laptop that’s going to have any serious use. It limits how many “big” programs (think Adobe and Microsoft in particular) you can install, and leaves little space for media-hungry files such as videos and photo dumps. In fact, once you take into account Lenovo’s hidden recovery partition, there’s only 98GB of usable space to start with anyway.

As a mid-range convertible, the Yoga 700 is still a bit of a disappointment. It's delightfully portable, but its display doesn't do justice to its Full HD resolution and the keyboard also leaves a lot to be desired. The 700 is far from bad, but the search for a compelling mid-range, ultra-portable convertible continues. Right now, the 11.6in Acer Aspire Switch 11V has the edge over this in many areas, but is itself let down by limited battery life. If you're not fussy about your keyboard, or colour accuracy on your display, then this is probably the strongest contender in a weak field. A strong alternative for those wanting a tablet-laptop hybrid is the Microsoft Surface 3 with a Surface Type Cover.

That doesn’t mean stay away, but it does mean buyer beware: you’re getting a well-designed, light laptop that doubles up as a tablet when you fancy reading or watching rather than doing, but enthusiasts will rub up against frustrations once they start pushing it beyond the basics.
