I like to review products by using them and beginning today I am incorporating the new Lenovo Yoga 700 into my daily routine as I take a closer look at the convertible 2-in-1 device over the next few weeks.
This will be my mobile device around the house, when I head out to my favorite coffee shop or for any travel I might have to do. There is no better way to really know and understand a device than to simply live with it every day.
Take a look at this gallery for a quick look at the hardware as it came out of the box. The last time I had a Lenovo Yoga in my house was a couple of years ago when I worked for Best Buy as a Microsoft Consultant and received a Yoga 11s as my work related device. I loved that device so I am looking forward to seeing what comes along with the Yoga 700.
Of course, my current daily laptop/convertible 2-in-1 driver right now is the HP Spectre x360 so that will also be a frame of reference for me as I use the new Yoga. In case you were wondering, the Yoga 700 is the successor to last years Yoga 3 14.
