Mobile World Congress — Lenovo unveils three new Windows 10 devices, including the two convertible laptops: YOGA 710 and YOGA 510, and a new detachable tablet: ideapad MIIX 310.

The ideapad MIIX 310 is a new affordable tablet designed to consume content on the go with up to 10 hours of battery life, detachable keyboard, and the option for 4G LTE for a price that won’t empty your wallet.
At 1.04kg (2.3 pounds), the YOGA 710 comes in two sizes and they both feature Intel’s latest sixth-generation Core processors.

In addition, Lenovo claims up to 8 hours of battery life of video playback.
As characteristic on the Lenovo YOGA line, the 710 can be used in four different modes, including laptop, stand, tent, and tablet mode. According to the company the “hinge antenna” design allows to deliver up to 20 percent better Wi-Fi connectivity.
