It flaunts a sleek design that will certainly get some head turning in the direction of its users, while also bringing some cool features to the table at the same time.
Design and Screen
Since the Yoga range of laptops was unveiled in 2012, we have been treated to different offerings of the highly mobile machines – the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro did not deviate from that path.
This hybrid is the thinnest and lightest Yoga that have been seen to date. It is just 12.8mm thick – competing with the thickness of a pencil – thin enough to be passed under the bedroom door, according to its maker.
Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro’s weight starts at just 1.18 kg. This unique outcome is made possible through the new hinge used for the laptop, which features a 10-point multi-touch display with Quad HD (3200 x 1800 pixels) resolution and measuring 13.3-inch. The screen resolution comes close to those seen on 4K displays.
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a highly adaptable machine in that it supports four different modes, namely: laptop, stand, tent and tablet modes. This is made possible by a combination of its innovative design, cool display and an improved hinge, made of 813 different pieces of steel and aluminium.
You can flip the laptop 360 degrees to convert it into the other modes. The Windows 8.1 operating system on which the Yoga 3 Pro runs is able to adapt itself quickly to the different modes and suggest compatible applications for individual modes.
