Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga G2 IAP (21DM0005FR)
Robust due to its compliance with the military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H, this 2-in-1 laptop sports an elegant and discreet look but also original with its thin and light aluminum design Mineral Gray sandblasted anodized finish openable 360 ° to turn into a Tablet.
The screen is indeed adorned with multi-touch touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it – or the stylus provided – by pressure / gestures, you can interact with the system and the software. The tactile involves a glossy treatment which gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
This hybrid laptop PC is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, its 6 ax Wi-Fi wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for communications and remote connections, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged into it.
You can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology, the TPM 2.0 security chip and the integrated fingerprint reader.
A backlighting system equips the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better distinguishing them when the ambient light is limited.
This Ultrabook Tablet runs on Windows 11 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.
Performance, battery life of the Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga G2 IAP (21DM0005FR)
The Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga G2 IAP (21DM0005FR) is a thin and light compact silver aluminum laptop convertible into a tablet designed for everyday general use.
It delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users because it is built around an Intel Alder Lake low-power Core i5-1235U hybrid processor and 16 GB of RAM.
This core is particularly suitable for contained multimedia work using multicore (and therefore the 10 cores of the Alder Lake-U) and RAM, such as video conversion or photo editing.
It also allows you to view photos and videos as well as play modest games. And this thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module directly housed in the Core i5 Alder Lake-U.
However, if the project is to often carry out work requiring processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to turn instead to a PC equipped with a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
On the storage side, there is a silent SSD but also less energy-consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
As a result, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, the starts / stops are thus much faster, in particular as are the processing and launching of software, and we arrive faster on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C / Thunderbolt device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, expect around 9 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook that is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness.
