The Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0010FR) against the competition
The Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0010FR) is currently showing in promotion at Lenovo France and positions itself as one of only its category to offer such a high definition screen with such a recent processor (Alder Lake).
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0010FR)
With its thin and light Storm Gray aluminum dark silver design, this 2-in-1 laptop has a sober, elegant and nevertheless original look since it can be opened 360° to convert into a tablet.
The screen indeed adopts the multi-touch tactile technology thanks to which one can interact with the system and the software by simple pressures / gestures of at least one finger or the supplied stylus applied to it.
Due to its touch functionality, the screen is glossy, which gives punch to the colors but involves sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Thanks to its IPS and sRGB characteristics, the screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles while reproducing colors more faithfully than average. In addition, it lends itself well to the display of High Definition content because it is adorned with a 2.5K definition greater than Full HD, while its 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th.
Those who wish can authenticate themselves biometrically by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology thanks to the infrared webcam positioned at the top of the screen.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile multimedia 2-in-1 Ultrabook is good, consisting of 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, an audio port, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting it to a TV or monitor for example, not to mention 2 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0/3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged into it.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0011FR)
The Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0010FR) targets those who are looking for a versatile thin and light multimedia-oriented laptop that can be converted into a tablet.
Many users will be satisfied with the general performance delivered by this versatile multimedia hybrid 2-in-1 Ultrabook as it is based on 16 GB of RAM associated with an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i5-1240P processor, a low-power model at the TDP of 28W higher than the classic 15W: the performance is higher but affects the autonomy. This is still more than adequate: about 8 hours on battery in light use.
This core notably provides faster processing than a conventional low-power processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that take advantage of multi-core – and therefore the 12 hybrid cores of the Alder Lake-P – and the RAM, such as in photo editing or video encoding.
No dedicated graphics card on board, however, and therefore this hybrid multimedia laptop will not be suitable for gamers. It should be mentioned all the same that light titles can run with some concessions due to the 2.5K definition of the screen requiring more graphic calculations than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps. In any case, no problem watching photos and videos with the Iris Xe, a graphics solution directly integrated into the Core i5 and which takes care of all the graphics.
Best known price: 1099€
In any case, it should be noted that it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if you plan to often carry out resource-demanding multimedia work. processor and/or graphics.
On the storage side, Lenovo has chosen a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt 4 device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
Still, an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, start-ups/stops, processing and software launches are much faster, for example, and you can get to online game cards faster. In general, the SSD ensures much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis.
Finally, this versatile multimedia hybrid Ultrabook adopts a thinness and a contained weight facilitating its transport, which will be appreciated by nomads.
