Lenovo intros a NVIDIA powered 14″ YOGA 700 tablet

Lenovo’s newest YOGA 700 tablet has a few optional features that should appeal to a larger audience than its lower-priced predecessors have in the past. The company introduced two Lenovo YOGA 700 models, an 11-inch YOGA 700 starting at $649 and a 14-inch YOGA 700 featuring an Intel 6th Gen Core i7 processor and optional NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics card starting at $799.

Both sizes come with Windows 10 and premium multimedia features, including standard Full HD IPS display and a solid-state drive. The 11″ and 14″ inch models also come with a responsive 10-point multitouch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display and Dolby DS1.0 Home Theater certified stereo speakers.

The 11-inch YOGA 700 weighs only 1.1 kg and measures 15.8 mm thin. With up to seven1 hours of battery life, the YOGA 700 allows travelers to work or play their way: watch a movie in stand mode, give a business pitch in tent mode, or navigate a map in tablet mode.

At 14″ the larger option includes Intel’s latest 6th Gen Core i7 processor, optional NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics card and up to 8 GB DDR3L memory. The 14-inch convertible laptop has up to 256 GB SSD storage so that users can launch apps and transfer files faster, focus on work with reduced noise and better recover their files even if they drop or knock the laptop.

The YOGA 700 also comes with an ergonomically designed AccuType backlit keyboard that makes typing more comfortable, accurate and easier on the eyes in dim environments. From switching between writing a report to editing high-res images in Photoshop® software, the 14-inch YOGA 700 has the power and battery life to help users power through their work without interruption.

“We know fast performance, easy portability, and rich sound and display are features consumers expect in a laptop today,” said Johnson Jia, senior vice president, PC Business Group, Lenovo. “That’s why we made the new YOGA 700 thinner and more powerful than ever with Windows 10 and Intel’s latest processor. We also added a Full HD IPS display and Dolby stereo speakers as part of its standard features so that consumers can get a premium quality convertible laptop for work and travel, at the price of a standard laptop.”
