Lenovo has a pair of new Yoga convertible laptops and is expanding the ideapad MIIX detachable series at Mobile World Congress this year. The new Yoga 710 comes in 14- and 11-inch models, while the Yoga 510 is available in 14- and 15-inch versions. The ideapad MIIX 310 is a 10-inch tablet with detachable keyboard cover.
The Yoga 710 packs a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor in the 14-inch model, while the smaller 11-inch version is powered by an Intel Core m5. It looks like Lenovo is sticking all the options on the 14-inch model, as it is configurable with up to a 256GB SSD and optional Nvidia Geforce graphics. The larger Yoga 710 is also said to boast a 20-percent better WiFi connection thanks to its new hinge mounted antenna. Despite the differences, both models are fitted with FHD (1920 x 1080) display.
Lenovo has provided fewer details about the Yoga 510, although the differences between the two sizes are expected to be similar to the Yoga 710. Specifications can go up to an Intel Core i7 processor with optional AMD Radeon R7 M460 graphics.
The other convertible option, the MIIX 310, is a 10-inch tablet with an optional FHD display. It improves on past MIIX devices by bumping the battery life up to 10 hours and is powered by an Intel Atom X5 8300 processor. It packs 64GB of internal storage, and doubles the amount of RAM from its predecessor to 4GB. Lenovo also says that it will have an LTE variant of the MIIX 310 available at launch.
The Yoga 710 14-inch and 11-inch laptops start at €899 (about RM4200) and €799 (about RM3700) respectively from May 2016. The Yoga 510 14-inch laptop starts at €479 (about RM2200), while the Yoga 510 15-inch laptop starts at €699 (about RM3200); both will be available starting in April 2016. The ideapad MIIX 310 10-inch tablet starts at €269 (about RM1270) from June 2016.
