The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE001KFR) against the competition
The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE001KFR) is currently showing in promotion at Lenovo France and positions itself as one of the few in its class to be convertible into a Tablet, to adopt a screen with such high definition and as faithful colors but also to be equipped with such a recent processor with Thunderbolt 4 connectors.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE001KFR)
With its thin and light Storm Gray dark silver aluminum design, this versatile multimedia Ultrabook has a sober, elegant but also original appearance because it can be opened 360° to turn into a tablet.
The multi-touch tactile technology equips the screen and therefore, you can interact with the system and the software by simple applications of at least one finger on it or the stylus provided, and this by pressure / gestures.
As it is tactile, the screen is glossy. As a result, it revives the colors but is prone to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The screen also adopts a 2.2K definition superior to Full HD, ideal for displaying High Definition content, its 16/10th format being more comfortable in height than the standard 16/9th. In addition, the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average while having significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS and sRGB characteristics.
Authentication by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology is possible because the webcam is equipped with Infrared technology, while privacy shutter is offered to preserve privacy.
The chiclet keyboard can also be backlit, to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
This versatile multimedia 2-in-1 Ultrabook also benefits from good connectivity with its 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules and 6-axis Wi-Fi (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its audio port or its unique USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE001KFR)
The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE001KFR) may appeal to those looking for a thin and light compact laptop convertible into a Tablet for general purpose nomadic and multimedia-oriented use.
It benefits from SSD storage whose large capacity of 1 TB corresponds exactly to what hard drives offer in this area the vast majority of the time.
As a bonus, an SSD has several advantages compared to hard drives because it is: more resistant to shocks, quieter, more energy efficient and much faster.
On a daily basis, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, the processing, start / stop and launch of software are much faster for example, and we arrive faster on the cards of online games.
While no dedicated graphics card is on board, you can watch photos and videos. Playing modest titles is also possible if you are ready to make concessions because the 2.2K definition requires more graphic calculations than Full HD, which translates into a lower number of fps.
It is in fact the Iris Xe graphics solution integrated directly into the processor which manages all the graphics. It takes place in the Core i5-1240P, a low-power Intel Alder Lake-P processor with a TDP of 28W higher than the 15W standard, which provides better performance but impacts autonomy.
Best known price: 1199€
Autonomy remains interesting since it is around 8 hours on battery in current use. This is all the more significant as this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is easy to transport thanks to its lightness, finesse and compactness.
Going back to the Core i5-1240P Alder Lake, it is here coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM. Many users will be satisfied with the general performance delivered by this core.
And in particular the creators since it guarantees faster processing than a classic Quad Core and 8 GB of RAM under software exploiting the multicore (and therefore the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P) and RAM, as in editing photo or video encoding.
If this core is suitable for modest multimedia work, to often perform processing requiring processor and/or graphics resources, it will be better to turn instead to a PC based on a non-low power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
