Lenovo Yoga bends to budget position

by on25 February 2016

Starts at $500

The Lenovo Yoga is one of those devices that we want since we played with one on a press doo and notw it appears that Lenovo has given us a reason.

Lenovo’s Yoga 710 (in the 11-inch version) is being released at a nice starting price of $500. For those who came in late a Yoga gets it name from its 360-degree hinge. You can turn the Yoga 710 into a tent mode for movie-watching, or stand mode for showing a presentation.

While lower-priced laptops are heavier the Yoga 710 just 2.35 pounds. Of course it helps that the 1080p IPS display is just 11.6 inches diagonally, but still that is pretty good.

In the smaller form factor, lighter-use laptop, Lenovo features CPU choices up to an Intel 6th-gen (Skylake) Core M5 CPU wth integrated graphics. You can configure the RAM up to 8GB (LP-DDR3), and you can choose up to 256GB of SSD storage. The 40Wh battery is rated by Lenovo to last up to 8 hours.

The Yoga 710 series will be available in June. A 14-inch version will follow with a starting price of $799, with much higher-end options, including core i7 CPUs and Nvidia graphics.
