Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Review – More than luxury workhorse





Lenovo’s Yoga 3 Pro is a very thin and light ultrabook with a striking hinge, inspired by a metal band. The Core M processor is adequate for light use, but not as fast as the processors used in previous Lenovo Yoga series. In addition, the active cooling audible and attacks the strength of the side opposite the hinge. The IPS screen has a high resolution and good viewing angles, but the contrast unfortunately leaves to be desired.

With the introduction of Intel’s Haswell processor and Windows 8 are all laptop manufacturers in 2013 began building convertibles: laptops with a touchscreen and “something” that the device is also used as a tablet. Some manufacturers chose a detachable keyboard, while others chose a swivel screen. Lenovo chose his Yoga series for a double hinge, so the screen can be rotated 360 degrees around the laptop. This construction proved to be satisfying, because in the meantime, HP, Toshiba and Asus convertibles issued with a similar folding screen.

Meanwhile, Intel has released the successor Haswell in the form of Broadwell, a processor generation that is baked on 14nm, the first set of chips with a TDP of less than five watts, Core M is baptized. Lenovo seized this opportunity to build a new convertible with a 360 degree swivel screen, thanks to low consumption, thinner and lighter than its predecessor was. The result is the Yoga 3 Pro, which is equipped with a Core 5Y70 M processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. Yoga 3 Pro is the first of the new generation of ultrabooks with Broadwell processor and we are curious what Lenovo and Intel have delivered for product.
