The Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0011FR) against the competition
The Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0011FR) is currently showing in promotion at Lenovo France and positions itself as one of only its category to offer such a large capacity SSD with such a recent processor (Alder Lake) and such a high definition screen.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 (82QG0011FR)
Open 360° to turn into a Tablet, this versatile hybrid laptop PC sports an original look and yet elegant and discreet with its thin and light Silver Storm Gray Aluminum design.
The screen is adorned with multi-touch touch technology: by simple pressure / gestures of at least one finger (or the stylus provided) applied to it, you can therefore interact with the system and the software.
As it is tactile, the screen is provided with a glossy treatment and therefore revives the colors but is prone to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The screen will interest lovers of High Definition content because it adopts a 2.5K definition superior to Full HD, here associated with a 16/10th format more comfortable in height than the traditional 16/9th. In addition, thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen displays more faithful colors than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. is well suited to displaying High Definition content.
Using the Infrared webcam, you can authenticate yourself biometrically by facial recognition using Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
This hybrid Ultrabook offers good connectivity for this type of PC with its 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0/3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times 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 (82QG0011FR) is for those who wish to acquire a thin and light multimedia-oriented versatile laptop convertible into a tablet.
Storage will appeal to demanding users. Because it is entrusted to an SSD offering both a large capacity of 1 TB competing with hard drives in this area, enough to accommodate multiple files and software. But also silent operation with better shock resistance than a hard disk, lower energy consumption and greater velocity.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we obtain for example starts / stops, processing and launches of software much faster than a hard disk, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
While no dedicated graphics card is embedded in this thin and light 2-in-1 laptop, you can indeed watch photos and videos but also play modest titles. And this thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the processor, subject to concessions under the demanding opuses in graphics resources to obtain good playability. It must be said that 2.5K requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps.
The Iris Xe is directly integrated into the Core i7-1260P, a low-power Intel Alder Lake-P processor. Its TDP of 28W is higher than the classic 15W, which implies better performance but less autonomy with a similar configuration.
We can still count in this area on about 8 hours of battery operation in light use.
Still, coupled with 16 GB of RAM, the Core i7-1260P delivers good general performance capable of suiting many users.
Creators in particular will be delighted to obtain faster processing thanks to this core than with 8 GB DDR4 and a conventional low-power Quad Core processor, and this under software exploiting RAM and multi-cores – and therefore the 12 cores hybrids of Alder Lake-P. This is for example the case in video conversion or photo editing.
However, if the objective is to often perform multimedia 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 adequate dedicated graphics card.
Finally, in addition to the considerable autonomy, nomads will appreciate that the transport of this hybrid Ultrabook is facilitated by its finesse and its controlled weight for a comfortable 2-in-1 laptop in 16-inch format.
