Rounding out Lenovo’s big MWC 2016 announcements are some additions to the YOGA and ideapad MIIX devices to their consumer lineup. We’ve been fortunate enough to review a lot of Lenovo’s consumer PC lineup and for the most part we’ve been impressed. Check out the full press release below to see the new additions to the YOGA family and ideapad MIIX family.
Lenovo Launches New Travel-ready Windows 10 Tablet and YOGA Laptops
New YOGA 710, 510 and ideapad MIIX 310 feature marked improvements in weight, connectivity and battery length
- New YOGA 710 and 5101 convertible laptops boost high performance and long battery life2 so mobile multitaskers can leave their cords at home for longer
- Affordable ideapad MIIX 310 designed for on-the-go webaholics with up to 10 hours2 of battery life, a detachable keyboard and optional 4G LTE
Today at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo introduced two new consumer Windows 10 PCs: YOGA 710 and 5101 convertible laptops and the ideapad MIIX 310 2-in-1 detachable tablet. We recognize consumers’ need to work on multiple devices for different tasks. For example, they may text on a smartphone, work on a laptop, and read on a tablet. That’s why we designed each of our new devices to either convert or detach into tablet mode, so users can do more with the comfort of typing on a keyboard and the power of the latest generation of Intel® processors, while giving them long battery life2 to leave the power cord at home.
Incredibly compact YOGA 710 gets work done on the go
We created the new 11-inch YOGA 710 for travelers and mobile workers who are productive on the road. Powered by a 6th Gen Intel Core™ i7 processor on the 14-inch model and up to Core m5 processor on the smaller 11-inch model, the YOGA 710 comes with Windows 10 and is one of the most powerful and portable convertible laptops available. Users can multitask seamlessly between videoconferencing, emailing and editing photos on the go. Weighing only 1.04kg, its compact size and ability to convert into a tablet make it ideal for people looking to save space in their bags. The YOGA 710 can flex into four modes that make it easy to type in laptop mode, present in stand mode, watch videos in tent mode, or browse in tablet mode. Its bigger sibling, the14-inch model, fits those looking for improved connectivity, via an innovative hinge antenna that delivers up to 20 percent better Wi-Fi connections than before.4 The 14-inch YOGA 710 also has an up to 256GB solid state drive (SSD) for fast access to movies, pictures, and files without having to use an external hard drive. It also has enhanced performance with optional next generation NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics.
Beautifully slim and light, both models offer up to 8 hours of battery so users can enjoy a movie marathon and still have charge to squeeze in a couple of hours of work.2 The FHD (1920×1080) display makes everything from movies and photos to games and video chat look sharper. The addition of Dolby Audio™ Premium energizes entertainment with rich, powerful sound that dynamically adjusts audio to deliver home theater quality in a virtual surround sound experience.
YOGA 510 offers freedom from the power outlet hunt
Thanks to a new stylish design, lighter weight, and more than 50 percent improvement in battery life, the new YOGA 5101 delivers up to 8.5 hours2 and lets users say goodbye to sitting on the floor tied to an outlet. Similar to the YOGA 710, the new YOGA 5101 delivers a smooth transition between laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes. Lighter than before at only 1.75kg (14-inch) and 2.08kg (15-inch), its new design has a unique diamond cut palm rest. Powered by up to 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with optional AMD® Radeon™ R7 M460 2GB GFX, the YOGA 5101 has serious performance chops for working and multitasking.
Work and play on the go with the affordable ideapad MIIX 310
Weighing just 580g, the versatile 2-in-1 detachable ideapad MIIX 310 tablet has optional 4G LTE that caters to data junkies who want the freedom to work and roam the web from any location. Starting at just $229, this 10-inch tablet is one of the most affordable devices that combines both tablet and PC in one. And unlike many of its rivals, it comes with a detachable keyboard as standard. Offering more battery life than before, the ideapad MIIX 310 boasts up to 10 hours2 of battery life with an optional FHD display, making movie marathons that much more immersive. With up to 64GB eMMC storage and 4GB DDR3L of memory, users will enjoy up to double the memory than before for faster web surfing and smoother multitasking. And with Cortana® and Lenovo REACHit™ on the ideapad MIIX 310, users have the convenience of finding documents, photos, music, videos, and more in a more natural and contextual way.
