The Thinkpad Yoga is a series of ultrabooks manufactured by Lenovo. The Yoga Series was launched during 2012, and its successor, the ThinkPad Yoga 2, was released in the 4th quarter of 2014. Yoga laptops are made to be as light, thin and portable as possible, targeting the young and tech savvy consumers. The Thinkpad Yoga stands out due to its unique feature of being able to fold flexibly up to 360 degrees to switch to a tablet mode.

The Yoga Series started out in the end of 2012, with the Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 models, which are 11 and 13 inch respectively. Yoga 2 Pro was the second generation to be released end of 2013, a 13.3 inch model that is significantly lighter than the Yoga 13. The latest model to be released in the series is the Yoga 3 Pro, released recently at the end of 2014. This new model is even thinner and lighter than all its predecessors while maintaining the 13.3 inch size, although due to a more powerful processor the battery life is slightly reduced to just under 6 hours. Besides the ultrabooks, there are also the IdeaPad Yoga Tablets, which come in 8 inch and 10 inch models as well.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
