Lenovo Yoga 7i 15 – Sólo $850 at BestBuy – Informe!
7Me 15 pulgadas, two in one convertible laptop and it’s. A very good machine. I’Ve been sitting on this review for far too long. You may have seen my original video, which was a tour. I did that right away. I got it from lenovo, i unboxed it. I went wow, i did the video did. You know then that’s it. I put it away and then i’ve come back to it from time to time. I did a battery drain test which we’ll get to in a bit, and i just did my usual stuff on it, and the thing is that i wouldn’t say i was. I was not impressed or i just wasn’t excited about the laptop well. Realmente, that is true. I wasn’t excited about the laptop. It was just it’s a solid machine, but what finally got me to you know: take it off the laptop stand and get to work on this. Video is a sale, that’s happening right now at best buy so i’m gon na try to get this video out as soon as i possibly can so that if you’re interested in it, you don’t miss this sale because it’s pretty it’s pretty solid. En realidad, you could call it an epic discount, this laptop is 1050 and this particular model is a best buy exclusive. You can get this laptop from other places, but this exact model is exclusive to best buy so it’s, Normalmente 1050. es, currently on sale for 8.
50. Sí, 850 bucks and you can get it open, boxed for even less and you know best buy, has a really good return policy on laptops with no restocking fee. So if you don’t, like the open box, one just return it and then you go buy the ones on sale brand new on open an 850 is a very good price for this machine. That’S that’s. To me how this becomes a very compelling buy is that it’s under a thousand dollars, frankly it’s under 900 es, just like phenomenal, so okay we’re, going to dive into some of the specs? Bien, all the specs that are important and we’ll dive into performance battery life. The whole deal in this all around review here we go this particular yoga. 7I is the 82bj 0003 us model. This one is exclusive to best buy, so you do get an 11th gen core i7 it’s on the evo platform. Es un 15.6 pulgadas. 1080P touch display with a one half terabyte ssd. Ahora, En lugar de 16 gigas de carnero, este tiene 12.. Usted puede conseguir esto con 16 gigas de carnero, but for the best buy model, that’s exclusive it’s, 12 and that’s. The one that i have here, this laptop runs really well at 12 and i don’t know how it would run at 8 if you find an 8 gig model somewhere else, but i’ve used windows 10 with i7s. You know 8th gen i7s, por ejemplo, y 8 gigs of ram and it’s miserable, so that could have been unique to that machine.
I don’t know or those machines rather, but just with my experience, i wouldn’t recommend that so okay here’s the deal it’s 1050 msrp or retail price at best buy. It is on sale right now for 8.50, this sale started today. This is a three day sale and i don’t know if it’ll extend past the three days but it’s part of the three day sale. Por lo tanto 850 is a super compelling price. This is a good all around machine and we’ll get into that in a moment. Now the open box is even more compelling now. 662.99 represents the fair condition, which means it can be scratched and show, wear and tear with scuffs and also not include the power cable. So don’t spend 663, en mi opinión, on the fair condition, go the excellent condition, que es 721.99. That makes more sense to me so yeah all right, let’s dive in with the tour and we’ll talk about my impressions in battery life. Here she is lenovo legion. 7Me. This is the dark moss color. It is aluminum but it’s, not a unibody construction sort of like a razor blade, lo cual está bien, but it is a bit heavy duty and you’re going to get scuffs and scratches on it. If you don’t take really good care of it, so just you know: full disclosure on that here are some close ups sort of like how it looks. It is a gorgeous machine with a nice reflection on it almost looks green in certain light, but they call it dark moss.
You get two usb there. You are two usb c uh, gen four ports and a headphone jack. En el otro lado, you have two usb a ports and that’s it. Claro, power is on that side as well. This does fully rotate here’s the one hand open test which is not going to work out at all, pero, as a commenter pointed out, does it really matter on a two in one and i’m impartial at this point i think yeah i’m just impartial. It is a very reflective display, but it is glass with touch sensitivity. There is no windows, hello outside of the fingerprint reader which we’ll get to in a bit when you lay it down flat, it’s flat, you can put it in tent mode. So if you want to share something with someone like this, allí, you go and then of course, tablet mode. Sorry for that noise. This wanted not did not come with the pen, but it is pen supported. So if you were to buy a lenovo pen or any other type of pen that’s compatible, you wouldn’t have a place to slide that pen in as you do with the yoga 9i, which i reviewed very recently as well. So yeah thoughts well it’s very well built and there’s. Some cool touches that lenovo’s done that i think really help it stand out. Por lo tanto, por ejemplo, i’ve called this out on like a bunch of lenovo videos, but i love how they’re putting the models on the lip, which is really cool.
So this lip sticks out. I don’t know if you can see that yeah that’s not working out, but it sticks out. So when you run your finger across the front, you’ll feel the lip and, to me this makes a ton of sense when you’re doing a one hand open it’s, like okay grab, my laptop lift it up, y así, when you see it happen like this it’s, very Welcoming right, but without the one hand open to me, the lip thing is still really cool, but doesn’t have that overall, like satisfaction of you know what it feels like to just want to hand open that thing and put your finger on the on that lip to Lip lift it up. Bien, so full size keyboard here the touch pad is totally fine. It works well it’s, not too slippery. I guess is the right word. Se siente bien, pero es, not very large, relative to other laptops that are out even other lenovo laptops, but not by a large degree for lenovo laptops. This is running intel evo, which means it meets certain standards as far as the wattage of the cpu, the immediate wake up um, you know i don’t know if you noticed that as soon as i lifted the lid for the first time on this video, the laptop Woke right up, Es decir, important to evo and battery life standards, so the battery life is it’s just insane i mean that’s, not fair, es, just super good.
Por lo tanto, por ejemplo, i ran my standard battery test, which is to loop, a youtube video series until the darn thing dies, i have the brightness at half and then i have the back lighting off on the keyboard and the the battery setting is set to stage two Out of four for windows – and this went 11 horas y 21 minutes that’s a lot – that is a lot of performance and i’m very happy with that. Por lo tanto, as far as you know, using this thing day to day for me, i like having a dedicated number number pad so on the keyboard. You have a full size keyboard with the number pad there’s no delineation between these keys, so they’re shaped the same. They feel the same. The distance between the first column of number keys and the last column of you know column. Alfa, typing keys is the same as the distance between the regular typing key, so it just sort of blends in aesthetically it’s, fine from a user standpoint. You definitely get used to it and if you’ve been typing for a long time, you know exactly where to put your fingers. So the fact that it isn’t called out or accentuated the number pad that is or in some way you know overly squished, it it’s fine. It it absolutely fine, Bien, so fingerprint reader is here as well. Sorry for the focus there, so the fingerprint reader it just works. I didn’t have to fiddle too much.
It was to me just as reliable as the fingerprint reader on my cell phone so that’s. I guess that’s really exciting and super good, so there’s a couple things i do want to call out because i’m not sure what’s going on number one is the fans will just sort of kick on. Como pueden ver, the lid is closed. The laptop should be off the power button is illuminated, i don’t know what’s going on. This has happened to me before, where i close it and i expect to go to sleep mode and then i’ll be like you know, all of a sudden the room is quiet, and then i hear this hum of the fans 20 minutes later and it’ll remain on. Until i open it back up and deliberately put it into sleep mode, but that doesn’t happen every single time i close a lid, so i don’t know what’s going on. The other thing is how sharp this is, and i think i might be one of the few people out there that actually complains about this with laptops. But one of the reasons that i love the thinkpad line from lenovo is because they have this rubberized sort of texture all around the machines, all the thinkpad machines, even the less expensive ones, but for whatever reason, the premium look right now. Maybe it’s dell’s fault for starting this. Is this really sharp edge around the entire device? So if you’re using this docked or you just have it on your lap or something it’s not going to really bother you? But if you use it a lot for tablet mode or you’re constantly just like picking up and going with it or you grab it, you turn around.
You walk away, es, i think it will bother you. It should bother should bother most people, it just should it’s sharp it’s, not razor sharp it’s, not going to cut you or anything like that, pero es, just not a comfortable feel it’s not comfortable hold and i think it’s worth calling out. So maybe you think i’m. Just really nitpicking here, lo siento, but it bugs me and that’s the type of thing that would prevent me from buying a laptop like this. Now i don’t have that problem with other aluminum machines, like the razer blade, por ejemplo. My blade has never bothered me in that way in the two years that i’ve had it. So i don’t know what to tell you so: Bien, um it’s, a good machine. I really like it it’s just a kind of like a okay that’s it that’s all. There is to it not a gaming machine saw a laptop all right hope.
