The Yoga 7i hit just 20 fps at 1080p and high graphics, where the XPS 13 achieved 29 fps and the Swift 5 managed 31 fps. User rating, 4.5 out of 5 stars with 1355 reviews. There are better options for the same or just a little more money. The touchpad is nicely sized given the available space, and it’s a Microsoft Precision touchpad with a responsive and precise feel. Music will make you want headphones, and if you’re sharing your screen, then a pair of Bluetooth speakers wouldn’t hurt. That’s an average score and less than the nine hours required for Evo certification. Like all Lenovo midrange or better laptops (and even its budget machines like the Yoga C640), the Yoga 7i is well-built, with an all-aluminum chassis that mostly resists bending, twisting, and flexing. In our video test that loops a Full HD Avengers trailer until the laptop hibernates, the Yoga 7i lasted for 12.5 hours. It actually beat out the Asus ZenBook 14 UX425EA with its Core i7, which managed just 497 and 1,746. Stepping up to a real-world test, using Handbrake to encode a 420MB video as H.265, the Yoga 7i required just under 3.5 minutes.

That’s a little better than the XPS 13 and an hour longer than the Swift 5, but I was nevertheless hoping for more.

Lenovo is on a marketing kick, renaming laptops but keeping them the same except for updated internals. All rights reserved. Windows 10 Hello support is provided by a fingerprint reader that’s accurate and responds quickly. For example, brightness was just slightly under our preferred 300 nits at 281 nits, and color width was in the right range for this class of display at 97% of sRGB and 75% of AdobeRGB with a DeltaE of 1.65 (accuracy of 1.0 or less is indistinguishable to the human eye and considered excellent). The Yoga 7i score 513 in single-core mode and 1,853 in multi-core mode, compared to the XPS 13 at 518 and 1,921 (525 and 1,988 in performance mode). In terms of its build quality, the Yoga 7i is well worth its price — and more. $1,199.99. One of the chief … Model: 81Q90041US. (495) Compare. The Swift 5 hit 950:1, and the XPS 13 achieved 1350:1. The Lenovo Yoga 9i is a renamed Yoga C940, for example, and the Yoga 7i is a renamed Yoga C740. Copyright ©2020 Designtechnica Corporation. And I remain uncertain about the nine hours required for Evo certification — that’s something that no Tiger Lake system I’ve tested so far can acheive. That’s an inferior score for a premium laptop today, most of which approach the 1000:1 ratio that we like to see. Only the Asus ZenBook Flip S, which was dramatically underclocked, performed nearly as bad at 31 fps. The Yoga 7i isn’t quite in the same league as some more recent 2-in-1s, like the HP Spectre x360 13 and the Asus ZenBook Flip S, in terms of following the trend toward tiny bezels. Impressive design, innovative engineering Four awesome modes. That makes the Yoga 7i both less modern looking and a bit larger than it might have been. That performance carried through to real gaming. In this test, the Yoga 7i lasted for 2.45 hours. It’s also like what I’ve seen from other Tiger Lake systems such as the Acer Swift 5, which runs with a more power-hungry Core i7. The Swift 5 was 17 seconds faster. Lenovo - Yoga C940 2-in-1 14" 4K Ultra HD Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 16GB Memory - 512GB SSD + 32GB Optane - Mica. Price Match Guarantee. The Yoga 7i’s graphics performance, though, was underwhelming. Of course, it’s also not a laptop for creative professionals, as it lacks the kind of color width and accuracy that they crave.

I hate pixelated text, and in fact, I prefer 4K displays even on 13.3-inch laptops — which I know puts me in the minority. User rating, 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review. Turning to my colorimeter, I also found the display to be average in most areas. It scored just 913 in Time Spy, compared to the XPS 13 at 1,647 and the Acer Swift 5 at 1,686. The HP Spectre x360 13 is a strong alternative to the Yoga 7i despite the smaller display. While the Core i7’s graphics perform much like an entry-level GPU such as the Nvidia GeForce MX350, the Core i5 in the Yoga 7i is closer to Intel’s Iris Plus integrated graphics. The Yoga 9i sports a new set of switches that add a great deal of precision to every keystroke — and that’s missed here. It’s more striking in its appearance, it’s quite a bit smaller and lighter, and it has a much better keyboard. Connectivity is a bit light for a 14-inch convertible, with two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support on the left-hand side to go with a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB-A 3.2 port on the right-hand side. It’s subtle, but I liked it. Note that the Core i5 has 80 execution units in its Intel Iris Xe graphics compared to the 96 execution units in the Core i7-1165G7, which explains a good portion of the difference in performance.
