Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 3 11

90% Lenovo Yoga 3 review: “Like a work of art”
Source: IT Pro Portal English
The Lenovo Yoga 3 11 is a phenomenal laptop that is both silent and fanless. It is small and thin, making it a wonderful travel companion. I can easily slide it in and out of my backpack, while the light weight prevents back pain too. True, the Core M processor is not a powerhouse, but it is quite peppy. When paired with 8GB of RAM, it is a very capable machine for all but the most tasking programs, such as video encoding and Photoshop. For everything else, it offers great performance.

60% Yoga 3 (11")
Source: Digital Versus English
The Lenovo Yoga 3 (11 inch) will suit anyone who wants a lightweight and responsive laptop for simple, everyday tasks (i.e. productivity, Internet and videos). We like the SSD as standard in this third-generation model. It's only more demanding programs that are limited by the processor's performance.

Lenovo Yoga 3 11 review — lightweight and ultra-flexible
Source: Slashgear English
If you're looking for a laptop that is both a proper notebook and a proper ultrabook, the Yoga 3 11 absolutely fits the bill. There's no odd modernist designs, no cumbersome detachable parts, no bulkiness being shoehorned into ultrabook claims -- it is merely a very lightweight, thin, and flexible laptop with a simple design, and that makes it an excellent product.

Series:

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. 

Intel HD Graphics 5300: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in Core M processors from the Broadwell Y-series (4.5 W TDP).  Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
5Y10c: Broadwell-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5300 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

1.2 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
