Lenovo Yoga 710 11 Review
The Yoga 700 series is Lenovo’s mid-tier convertible notebook line. It’s a step up from their Ideapad Miix series in both quality and performance, and a step down from the premium Yoga 900. (See our reviews of the Ideapad Miix 310 and the Yoga 900S, respectively, to get a perspective on them.)

The Yoga 700 is offered with 11.6-, 14- and 15.6-inch screens. We’re reviewing the smallest one, dubbed the Yoga 710-11. It has a full HD touch display, Intel Core m3 processor, 256GB of storage, and Windows 10. It rings up at $550, or $100 more than the base Yoga 710-11. It’s just 2.3 pounds and three quarters of an inch thin, but still a bit hefty next to a dedicated tablet. (It was decidedly more portable than the Yoga 710-14 we reviewed a bit earlier this year, though.)
We found the Yoga 710-11 offered excellent battery life, usable performance, and was thin and light to take just about anywhere. On the other hand, its upper-tier configurations were expensive, and its keyboard wasn’t the best. We did however find enough substance to send it off with a recommendation.
