Lenovo Yoga S740 (14) review – it has great features but disappoints with performance
Source: Laptop Media English
With the new processors of Intel going to the market as fast as bread is sold out in a cold autumn morning, there will be literally tons of laptops flooding the market. For us, the Yoga S740 (14) was the first we were able to test, and we had some mixed feelings by it.

Lenovo Yoga S740 Review: Your Next Premium Ultrabook?
Source: Unbox English
For Php 74,995, the Yoga S740 is a great premium ultrabook offering from Lenovo. While it is a tad heavier and thicker than the competition, the Yoga S740’s solid build and no-frills minimalist design make it one of the sleekest-looking laptops today.

100% Lenovo Yoga S740 (14-inch) review: Pure laptop perfection
Source: Pocket Lint English
It might not be 'fancy' and lacks the hinge of typical Yoga devices, but solid battery life, great performance, and a seriously solid build make this laptop about as good as you could hope for the asking price.

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G4: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.1 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a relatively fast Iris Plus G4 graphics card  and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.4 kg:


100%: This notebook model is regarded by the reviewers to be exceptionally good. There hardly exist laptops, which are rated so good. If this rating can be taken seriously, this is a clear recommendation for purchase.
