The Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7 (82LU0088FR) against the competition

The Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7 (82LU0088FR) is currently showing in promotion at the house of Darty and the Fnac. It offers a configuration / price ratio interesting for its category where the competition is very limited and where it is one of the only ones to benefit from such a high definition screen with such faithful colors with such a powerful and recent processor/graphic solution or even Thunderbolt connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7 (82LU0088FR)

With its thin and light Storm Gray aluminum design, this versatile 2-in-1 laptop has a sober, elegant but also original look since it can be opened 360° to turn into a tablet.

The screen indeed adopts multi-touch tactile technology: by simple pressures/gestures of at least one finger (or the supplied stylus) applied to it, it is therefore possible to interact with the system and the software.
The tactile aspect involves a shiny treatment and therefore a sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside) but also bright colors.

The screen also stands out for its OLED DCI-P3 technology, which involves colors that are much more faithful than the average with very deep blacks as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. In addition, its 2.8K definition, superior to Full HD, is well suited to displaying High Definition content. In addition, with its very low latency due to the OLED panel and its frequency of 90Hz higher than the standard 60Hz, the screen provides better fluidity than average.

This 2-in-1 laptop PC offers 2 biometric authentication solutions via Windows Hello technology and the integrated TPM 2.0 security chip: a fingerprint reader and an infrared webcam for facial recognition.

You can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better discerning its keys in the dark.

Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7

For this type of hybrid Ultrabook, the connectivity is good, including 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port as well as 1 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0/3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device .
For those who regret the absence of an HDMI video output, it is possible to use a USB-C to HDMI adapter for example.

Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7 (82LU0088FR)

The Lenovo Yoga 9 14IAP7 (82LU0088FR) may appeal to those looking for a thin and light versatile compact laptop convertible into a Tablet and multimedia-oriented.

It delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users because it incorporates 16 GB of RAM coupled with a low-power Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P processor with a TDP of 28W higher than the classic 15W classic for better performance, but the autonomy is therefore impacted.

In this regard, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this hybrid Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport.

Point of dedicated graphics card here on board. However, thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the Core i7 Alder Lake-P, you can watch photos and videos but also play light titles with concessions in terms of display because the 2.8K requires more calculations from the part of the GPU than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps.

If the players will go their way, the creators carrying out modest multimedia work will be able to be satisfied with this versatile 2-in-1 laptop PC if they use software exploiting the RAM and the multicores because in this case, the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P reveal their full potential (eg video encoding, photo editing).

But if you often have to carry out multimedia work that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or an adequate dedicated graphics card.

In any case, the storage will satisfy demanding users since it is entrusted to a silent SSD while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
In addition we find here a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity rivaling hard drives in this area, enough to store and install multiple files and software, including personal production.

Still, the SSD provides much faster processing than a hard drive, for example, as well as software starts / stops and launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
More generally, the SSD offers much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than a hard drive.

Concretely, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, the processing is notably much faster, as are the starts / stops and launches of software, and we reach the cards of online games faster.
