The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE00A3FR) against the competition
The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE00A3FR) is currently showing in promotion at the house of Darty and the Fnac. It offers a configuration / price ratio interesting for its category where it is one of the only ones to offer such a high definition screen with such faithful colors with such a recent processor but also Thunderbolt 4 connectors and stylus provided.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE00A3FR)
Open 360° to transform it into a tablet, this thin and light laptop with its silver aluminum Storm Gray design has an elegant and discreet but also original appearance.
The screen is adorned with multi-touch touch technology allowing interaction with the system and the software by simple application and gestures/pressures of at least one finger on it or the stylus provided.
The tactile implies a brilliant treatment which gives punch to the colors but implies a sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (ex: outside).
Those who want a display with very faithful and High Definition colors, such as creatives, will be delighted that the screen adopts OLED DCI-P3 specifications, which also implies very deep blacks with low latency and significant viewing angles, both horizontal than vertical.
In addition, thanks to its 2.8K definition superior to Full HD and its 16/10th format more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content while its 90Hz frequency improves fluidity compared to the 60Hz standard.
As an infrared webcam is integrated, you can authenticate yourself biometrically by facial recognition.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit so that its keys can be easily distinguished in a dimly lit environment.
In terms of connectivity, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook is well equipped. Here we find 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6 ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, but also 1 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE00A3FR)
The Lenovo Yoga 7 14IAL7 (82QE00A3FR) may be of interest to those who wish to acquire a thin and light compact laptop PC convertible into a tablet for general purpose nomadic use.
Easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its lightness, it will interest nomads all the more as in terms of autonomy it is able to hold about 8 hours on battery in light use.
This sleek aluminum 2-in-1 Ultrabook delivers solid all-around performance to satisfy a maximum of users. Because it is based on 16 GB of RAM as well as an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i5-1240P hybrid low-power processor whose TDP of 28W higher than the standard 15W allows better performance but less autonomy with a similar configuration.
In any case, this core guarantees faster processing than 8 GB DDR4/5 as well as a classic Quad/Hexa Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicores and therefore of the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P, which is the case for example in photo editing or video encoding.
No dedicated graphics card on board, however, which players will regret, as will demanding creators.
Moreover, to often carry out work requiring processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
Here all the graphics are managed by the Intel Iris Xe module directly integrated into the Core i5 hybrid Alder Lake-P, enough to watch photos and videos but also to indulge in modest games if you agree to settings under opuses that consume 3D resources to obtain good playability.
In games indeed, the 2.8K of the screen requires more calculations than Full HD, which implies a lower number of fps.
The storage is entrusted to an SSD which provides multimedia processing much faster than a hard drive, as well as software launches and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster while being more resistant to shocks than a hard drive, more energy efficient and silent.
As a result, an SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives.
What if we need more space? You can then use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt device to benefit from fast transfers.
