Chassis, connections, screen of the Lenovo Yoga Pro 7 14APH8 (82Y80045FR)

With its thin and light compact aluminum blue Tidal Teal design certified to the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H, this multimedia-oriented laptop has a sober, elegant and original look.

This versatile laptop PC integrates good connectivity including 2 USB-C including 1 USB 4, Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port or even 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.

As the webcam adopts Infrared technology, you can authenticate by facial recognition using the Windows Hello functionality.

When the ambient light is reduced, you can activate the backlighting of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish its keys.

Lenovo Yoga Pro 7 14APH8 (82Y80045FR)

The screen stands out on several points, starting with its 2.5K definition superior to Full HD, showing itself to be well suited to High Definition content, its 16:10 format displaying more information in height than the classic 16:9 format.
The screen also stands out for its sRGB and IPS specifications offering more faithful colorimetry than average as well as wide viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Furthermore, the screen is adorned with a frequency of 90Hz higher than the standard 60Hz which reinforces general fluidity while its anti-reflective treatment makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Yoga Pro 7 14APH8 (82Y80045FR)

The Lenovo Yoga Pro 7 14APH8 (82Y80045FR) may appeal to those who wish to acquire a versatile compact portable High Definition laptop computer with high performance in terms of multimedia-oriented processor.

The good overall power it delivers is greater than that provided by the vast majority of models on the market.
It must be said that it is driven by an AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7 7840HS processor. Phoenix Octo Core combined with a large amount of 32 GB RAM, twice the average.

This core is particularly interesting for creators because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core processor and 16 GB DDR4/5. We strongly feel the difference in work requiring RAM and CPU resources that takes advantage of multi-cores, such as video editing or photo editing.

This versatile multimedia portable PC, whose power will appeal to demanding users, will not, however, interest gamers. Because it does not include a dedicated graphics card. So also no more GPU acceleration of processing.

Despite everything, thanks to the Radeon 780M graphics solution inserted in the Ryzen 7 Phoenix, we can of course watch HD photos and videos. But also play light to modest games with concessions. We are clearly thinking of a reduction in screen definition since 2.5K requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps.

Lenovo offers here storage that matches the rest of the configuration: an SSD with a large capacity of 1000 GB to install and store quantities of software and files, including personal creations.

The SSD supports the heart very well on a daily basis since it provides much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, multimedia processing is carried out faster than with a hard drive, as are application launches and starts/stops, while we can access online game cards more quickly.

Remember in this regard that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being silent, more energy efficient and more resistant to shocks.

Finally, in terms of autonomy, expect around 8 hours of battery operation in light use for this high-performance, multimedia-oriented multipurpose mobile computer that is as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its lightness, compactness and finesse. Something to interest some wishing to equip themselves with a Student laptop.
In any case, expect heat and noise when this mobile computer is pushed hard (e.g. processing).

A ventilated support can be used in addition to limit temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
