Model: The Lenovo Yoga 710-14IKB-80V4004RSP is a convertible laptop. It is the successor of the Lenovo Yoga 700 series laptop. Its elegant exterior design features silver-gray surfaces on the deck which feature chrome lines on its edges. All exterior surfaces of this model are made of aluminum and offer adequate strength and resistance except for the frame of the screen, which is made of plastic. The convertible laptop has firm 360-degree hinges, which allow this model to take the tablet, music stand and store modes apart from the laptop and keep the screen in the selected position during normal use.

It has 8 GB of DDR4 memory at 2.133 MHz in a single module and a 256 GB SSD drive with an M.2 interface (2280 format). The integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 delivers excellent multimedia playback capabilities, an acceptable gaming experience with details low in HD resolution on current modern games such as Titanfall 2 (2016) or Resident Evil 7 (2017).
One of the strengths of this model is the high quality of its display. The laptop comes with a 14-inch LCD panel with Full-HD resolution and LED backlight, which offers high brightness and contrast values, and good color fidelity. Thanks to IPS technology, the display also offers very wide viewing angles. Backlit in white, its keyboard provides a good writing experience despite the short stroke when pressed. It is all thanks to the appropriate size of its keys and the generous spacing between them. The touchpad comes with a smooth surface, which offers adequate response and accuracy. It also supports multi-touch gestures. Looking at the base of the convertible laptop, it has a pair of JBL stereo speakers, which provide good sound quality. However, the bass is not significant due to the lack of a subwoofer. It comes with a large 6960 mAh battery. Coupled with the high energy efficiency of its hardware configuration, it allows the laptop to exceed 9 hours of battery life with Wi-Fi navigation. It has very good networking capabilities being compatible with Wifi-AC (Dual Band), Bluetooth version 4.0 and Intel Wireless Display (WiDi). All in, the Lenovo Yoga 710-14IKB-80V4004RSP is a solid convertible laptop but its price range is rather high for what it offers. There are other convertibles by Acer and Asus which are priced lower.
