Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 700-14ISK 80QD
Mainstream convertible. The Yoga 3 14 gets a new name with updates to core components. What else is new for this Skylake refresh?

Ultrabooks and 2-in1s have always been more of a niche in the notebook market. While subsequent generations have made you give up less and less for the thin-and-light chassis, there are still some trade-offs. Traditionally the largest trade-off for these more portable designs has been cost. In the past, what we have considered "good" 2-in1s have come in at around $1200. With the Lenovo Yoga 700, it is refreshing to see a solid performing machine come in at under $900. You might sacrifice a bit of battery life, but for most users I would highly recommend the Lenovo Yoga 700.

It was only a few short years ago when the idea of folding a laptop's lid all the back on itself might induce a heart attack, along with the need to buy a new notebook. That's still true of many systems today, though not Lenovo's Yoga line, which is the gymnast of the laptop world.

If you liked the Yoga 3 14, you'll love the new Lenovo 700. The laptop is both refined and powerful, offering a hint of personality in the design without looking cheap alongside overall solid hardware. The laptop feels sturdy in the hand and comfortable to type on, and won't look out of place in a professional environment. This is merely the latest in a large array of new laptops Lenovo has introduced this year; be sure to hit up our Lenovo portal for all the latest news and reviews!

The 14.1in Lenovo Yoga 700 is a rather frustrating device. Its build quality and high performance levels make it a very capable system to take on the road, but other aspects like its screen and battery life let it down. We'd expect better at this price, but that's not to say it's necessarily a bad choice. It's still a very versatile laptop for everyday use, and provides just as much speed as more expensive ultraportables. However, when you can get the equally convertible Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 for a lot less, which has a superior display and longer battery life, it becomes harder to justify choosing the Yoga. If you need the extra horsepower, the Yoga 700 will get the job done, for if you'd rather save some money, the Toshiba is a much better buy.

The Lenovo Yoga 700 is a serviceable and sensible 14" 2-in-1 convertible Ultrabook whose only failing is that it brings nothing new or sexy to the table. It's somewhat dull looking, but we like the soft touch finish and firm display hinges. It lacks features that make it stand out, but it's competent and capable for use as a main computer.

With strong performance and a price tag of less than $1,000 the Lenovo Yoga 700 is a solid 2-in-1 notebook. The keyboard travel and feedback isn’t fantastic and the screen could fair better in direct light both indoors and outside, but these faults do little to mar the overall product. While the build we tested was adequate for most users, we’d recommend the pre-configured model with the dedicated Nvidia graphics. The added performance of the dedicated graphics card in combination with utility and portability of the Yoga 700’s design is a potent package.

You can find similarly or better powered systems for the same price or less than the Yoga 700, some with the same ability to convert into a tablet. Although you lose a bit of screen real estate with a 14-inch screen compared to a 15-inch notebook, its smaller size and lighter weight are some of the system's marquee features. You can carry the Yoga 700 around without feeling burdened, or put it down somewhere without it taking up too much space.

The Lenovo Yoga 700 comes close to being among the best choices for a true laptop/tablet hybrid, thanks to its clever hinge design. Ultimately, however, its build quality, screen and touchpad make it feel of middling value compared to non-touchscreen Ultrabooks of the same price.

The Yoga 700 is the best 14-inch convertible we've tested, but we're not wild about 14 inches as a tablet size. Its battery life and performance are good, but not outstanding. Its design is appealing, but—well, we won't say flimsy, nowhere near that, but a little too flexible for our liking. It's good value for money, but it doesn't stand out in a market full of terrific 2-in-1's.

The Yoga 700 is a solid midrange 2-in-1. Its performance, build quality and display are all good, or at least equal to the competition, but it doesn't do much to really stand out. While the Yoga 700's 7-hour battery life is probably fine for most, it's a little short of what we expect in this category.

Lenovo's Yoga series gets improved battery life and performance with the new 700 model. It is still one of the best hybrid designs on the market and has some good solid performance. Sadly, it still suffers from rather large size and weight that make it less useful for those that want to use it frequently as a tablet.

Model: Convertibles are becoming common in the laptop market. With its signature 360-degree hinge, which can be flipped all the way around and even lay flat, the Lenovo Yoga 700 definitely stands out. Due to a weight of 1.49 kg and a big 14-inch display, it is nonetheless not idyllic to use the Yoga 700 while standing. The capacitive touchscreen features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and supports 10-point touch technology. The Yoga 460 is powered by the 6th generation Intel Core i5-6200U Processor with Intel HD Graphics 520, 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD.
Thanks to using Intels Skylake architecture, the power consumption is lower and the GPU performance is higher than the predecessor generation's. Interfaces on the tablet include two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port (with D/C-in), a Micro HDMI port, a media card reader and an audio combo jack. Sound quality is loud and clear as its stereo speakers use Dolby DS 1.0. The backlit keyboard provides illumination for use under low-lit conditions and the touchpad is responsive. Networking is supported by both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Windows 10 Pro system achieves a battery life of up to 7 hours.
Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.
In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.
In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
72.56%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
