Lenovo Yoga 700 Review: A Flexible 14-Inch Ultraportable Convertible

System Benchmarks: SunSpider and PCMark 8

The Lenovo Yoga 700 is really a general purpose convertible, not a gaming system or a workstation class machine. To start things off, we take a look at how it handles web browsing, and specifically JavaScript, along with a PCMark 8 run to see if everything is working properly.

SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark
JavaScript Performance Testing

SunSpider is a well-known JavaScript benchmark. The test is designed for comparing browsers to each other, so it’s worth pointing out that different Web browsers can have an impact on scores.

Lenovo Yoga 700 owners will presumably spend quite a bit of time on the web, so it's nice to see the system take position towards the top of the pack here. This is what we would hope (and expect) to see from a Skylake system with sufficient RAM (8GB in this case).

PCMark 8
Productivity and System-Level Benchmarking

Futuremark’s PCMark 8 runs the system through typical home and work activities and provides individual scores for certain task categories, rather than specific hardware. The Home test is just as it sounds: a collection of everyday tasks, including web browsing and chatting. The Work test is more demanding and has business-oriented tests, while the laptop’s SSD gets workout in the Storage test.

Lenovo Yoga 700 PCMark 8

The Yoga continues its strong start by again settling in among the front of the pack, this time in PCMark 8. It's performance here is representative of a strong foundation consisting of an Intel Core i5-6200U processor, 8GB of DDR3L 1600MHz RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive. There ample power packed inside the Yoga 700 to tackle productive chores.
