Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro

82% First Impressions: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro in Review | Notebookcheck
Hello Broadwell! Intel introduces the next generation of CPU technology. Lenovo’s brand-new Yoga 3 Pro Convertible is one of the first devices with the new Core-M processors. How does the new chip perform compared to Intel’s Haswell ULV processors? What can you expect from the third generation of the Lenovo Yoga? Here are our initial impressions and measurements ahead of our upcoming test.
82% Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Often imitated, never duplicated. Lenovo was a first-mover in the 360-degree hinge segment, but they’re not content to rest on their laurels. Instead, the company brings us the thinnest, lightest, and most ambitiously-designed Yoga yet. Don’t miss our full review to see how the Yoga 3 Pro stacks up.
82% Intel Core M-5Y70 "Broadwell" Review | Notebookcheck
Performance goes up, energy consumption goes down? After a several-month delay, Intel has finally released the fifth incarnation of their "Core" architecture, codenamed Broadwell. It's even coming on the market this year -- at least in a few machines. Initially, the new, extremely low-energy Core M series will only be used in the improved 14 nm manufacturing process. Is it a dream come true? Can we now expect to see high-performance, passively cooled Windows tablets?
80% Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro: Still the most stylish convertible around?
Source: T3 English
The Yoga 3 Pro remains an impressive accomplishment in design. It’s thin and light and catches the eye in a manner that few laptops can thanks to its watchband hinge-style. The problem, then, partly lies around Lenovo’s switch to Intel’s Core M processor. Its inclusion in the Yoga 3 Pro allows it to be thin, but like Apple’s 12-inch MacBook, it comes at the expense of raw power. Added to (in parts) poor build quality, shoddy speakers and battery life that has you constantly fearful of running out of juice, the Yoga 3 Pro's eye-catching design soon loses its allure.

This laptop design is truly amazing and extremely likable. The multi-mode positions, ultra-light weight (2.62 Lbs) and a beautiful hi-DPI display are the killer features of the Yoga 3 Pro. However, the performance is not as high as I had hoped. Whether it is to compress video or, just in general, coming from a faster Core i5 or Core i7 system, the difference is noticeable.

75% A visual stunner, but for Rs 1,14,990 battery and performance not upto mark
Source: Tech2.in.com English
But this is not a workhorse in the traditional sense of the word. You cannot do heavy lifting such as video editing. Granted this laptop is not meant for that kind of work. If you are planning to transcode video, again it will be really slow on this. The battery life, something which should have been at least the promised 7.2 hours, is nowhere close. That is the biggest drawback.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a beautifully designed ultrabook and the slim form factor along with the light weight is a boon if you are the kinds who have to carry a laptop to work daily. The 3200 x 1800 pixel display is one of the best we have seen on a laptop. Touch response and using the Yoga 3 Pro in various modes, specially stand and tent mode for movies and presentations is really cool. In terms of performance, the Yoga 3 Pro can do most of the regular tasks such as surfing the web, watching HD movies, working on office suites, even working with Adobe Lightroom for photo editing.

This is a laptop you can show off anywhere, but not necessarily one you can get any serious work done on. If you are a power user you will encounter several frustrations. While the screen looks great at first, it feels very constricted to work on. There's a large SSD and lots of RAM, but the processor isn't really suited for heavy workloads.

We had high hopes for the Yoga 3 Pro, but it’s safe to say that these were dashed during testing. While it’s light and easy on the eye, it underachieves in almost every other area. Average performance and unremarkable battery life mark an undistinguished debut for Intel’s Core M architecture, and a subpar display and iffy keyboard layout leave ample room for improvement.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro: First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Clearly, there will be a very small audience of buyers for the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. Lenovo declined to comment on how many units it expected to sell, but it knows there won't be many. The company hopes that it will become something of a halo product, serving to demonstrate its engineering and design prowess. For that reason, the device will be available only at Croma retail outlets and a small number of Lenovo's own brand stores. Both Croma and Lenovo's websites will offer it too, though you should really check it out in person before deciding whether or not to drop more than a lakh on it.

70% Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro-1370 review: lightweight ultraportable laptop converts to Windows tablet, offers decent battery life and good performance
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a lightweight ultraportable that can convert into a Windows 8 tablet. Don't be misled by the name – the Yoga 3 Pro is far from a professional notebook, foretold by Lenovo's choice of Windows consumer operating system. Overall battery life is better than budget laptops although we had hoped for more like 10 hours with the novel low-power processor. Overall system performance was impressive given the low clock frequency, with graphics potentially sufficient to run some Windows games at lowest settings.

80% Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro review: Design delight, but pricey
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro shows off the company's new do-it-all hinge design and is a triumph in terms of versatility. But it's also a pricey bit of kit, tipping the scales at close to £1,300. Considering the super slim design, the Yoga 3 Pro crams in impressive Intel Core M specs and flexes its muscles where it matters. The only exception is that battery life could go a little further - but it does the job for most of the day without the need to lug a charger about.

At the end of the day the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro not only exceeded our expectations but earned a spot as “the best premium 2-in-1 currently available.” The winning recipe boils down to thinner and lighter multi-mode design combined with the performance and fan-free cooling of the new Intel Core M processors, lightning-quick SSD and a smart power adapter jack that doubles as a USB port.

I am torn over the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. On the one hand, it's the ideal Ultrabook with tons of use cases and a fantastic form factor. On the other hand, it doesn't live up to my expectations for a device of this price, leaving me feeling a little disappointed. I love the form factor. The Yoga 3 Pro is slim, sleek and sexy, featuring a classy aluminium shell and Gorilla Glass-protected display, complemented by an 800-piece watchband hinge that looks fantastic (some may disagree). It's also one of the lightest Ultrabooks going around, making it very portable and the perfect choice for the user always on the move.

Will and Norm sit down to discuss the new Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, which is the first laptop we've seen to utilize Intel's Broadwell chipset. While more power efficient than the processor used in last year's Yoga and even the Surface Pro 3, the Core-M CPU here isn't without its compromises. Thinner and lighter doesn't always mean better!

In practical use, it's a good thing the Yoga 3 Pro can hang with most ultrabooks performance-wise. To be perfectly honest (which is what you come here for), it's utility as a tablet is somewhat limited. It's just too big and bulky, with its 13-inch frame to be manageable for more than casual use in this mode.

There's something to be said for a 2.6-pound laptop. It's sexy; it's that much easier to carry around; and, uh, did I mention it's sexy? On a serious note, though, I hope that over time, super-light laptops like this come with fewer trade-offs. As it stands, the Yoga remains the most versatile Ultrabook on the market, with a sturdy 360-degree hinge, brilliant screen and zippy performance.

The Lenovo YOGA Pro 3 is the first Windows notebook I've considered using as my daily driver for a very, very long time. It's not that manufacturers haven't been up to the task, and it's not that Windows hasn't been a respectable operating system. It's just that up until now, for the past several years at least, no one company has gotten the combination as right as Lenovo has here.

If you're looking for one of the lightest 13.3" convertible Ultrabooks on the market, and one of the slimmest, the Yoga 3 Pro has certain appeal. Other than the Surface Pro 3, which is a tablet rather than a true convertible, you won't find anything lighter than this with a conventional keyboard attached and Ultrabook performance. It's a well put together machine that looks stunningly thin, and the supremely high resolution display is sharp and colorful.

There’s no denying the elegance of the Yoga 3 Pro from a design standpoint. Its outstanding high-resolution display and design are the standout features. But it is a case of style over substance.

On the other hand, while it's perfectly fine for everyday productivity, the system's Core M processor struggles with more ambitious applications. We could wish for a little less bezel and a little more screen, considering the Yoga's size. Finally, this 2-in-1 didn't delight us in tablet mode, exhibiting excessive flex on top of the fact that it's just too big.

Testing: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Laptop
Source: Tested English
After a week of using the Yoga 3 Pro, I get the feeling that this is a premium laptop for users who don't need a powerful computer. The $1300 price--which includes 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage--seems high for the relatively limited computing performance, so you're paying more for the high resolution screen and the formfactor. That may be worth it for people who don't need to do heavy computing, so battery life may be the deciding factor here.

If picking out the best system were purely about performance, I'd recommend that you opt for a much-less-expensive system with a full-size laptop CPU, like the Toshiba Satellite Radius P55W-B5224, our Editors' Choice for midrange convertible-hybrid laptops. The Toshiba offers much better performance, and it is far more affordable. However, if portability and battery life are primary concerns, the Yoga 3 Pro is well ahead, thanks to the Core M and the slimmer design it allows.

Beautifully designed, the Core M-powered Yoga 3 should suit buyers in search of a top-shelf convertible. At $1,300, it's $250 more than a similarly equipped but thicker Yoga 2 Pro that doesn't last as long on battery.

On the outside, the Yoga 3 Pro looks and feels like a nice upgrade. It’s very thin, light and mostly sturdy built, except for the screen’s hinge. On top of these, the metallic case and fancy hinge mechanism give it a premium allure. Once you’ll open it up you’ll notice the nice screen, the comfortable keyboard and the accurate trackpad, although the non standard keyboard layout will surely steer some of you away, as well as the stubborn click buttons.

At £1,300, the Yoga 3 Pro one of the most expensive Ultrabooks available today. It’s also £300 more than a top-spec MacBook Air, although the Apple machine lacks a high resolution display, has less memory and doesn’t also double up as a tablet. Given the battery life improvements and slimmer dimensions, the Yoga’s position as the best convertible laptop has been cemented here. Picture quality may be a slight reduction over the outgoing model, but it's only slight, so if you're looking for lightweight Windows laptop there's no doubt this is the one to buy.

Lenovo's London launch event last night saw the introduction of three new members of the world-number-one PC maker's Yoga line of 'multimode' computers: the 13-inch Android-based Yoga Tablet Pro 2 with a unique built-in projector; the Yoga Tablet 2, available in 8-inch and 10-inch sizes, running Android or Windows; and the 13-inch Yoga 3 Pro, an impressively thin and light convertible Windows ultrabook.

That caveat aside, the Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 looks like a great laptop. It builds on the concept of a ‘four mode’ laptop, an idea Lenovo has pioneered, making it so much thinner and lighter that it makes me wonder what else it could achieve with smaller version. For now, though, we have this 13-inch version and it looks stunning.

But before you put your hands into your pockets, it's worth noting that the Yoga 3 Pro is one of the first Core M devices to race out of the traps, and others are expected to follow soon. Thinner and lighter is set to become the norm, and with fanless designs on the horizon, we should expect to see even more experimental models that won't break the bank in the near future.

Model:

Followers of Lenovo's Yoga series have been eagerly awaiting the installment of the latest convertible laptop, the Yoga 3 Pro. Lenovo did not disappoint with this new machine, declared among the thinnest and lightest in the world. With a thickness of only 0.5 inch (1.27 cm) and weighing less than 1.20 kg, it is considered the most space saving machine available.

This immensely efficient design is coupled with a novel rotating hinge, developed exclusively by Lenovo, named the Watchband. This unique and exciting hinge was inspired by the firm flexibility of wristwatches and allows great flexibility with its full 360 degrees rotation. Instead of a traditional 2 point rotation, the watchband design employs six different rotating points. This feature allows users to prop up the laptop any way they feel comfortable with, whether on a table, on the floor, or balanced on one's stomach or knees.

The brand new Intel Core M-70 processor does not require cooling fans to be incorporated. Intel has claimed that this spanking new processor consumes less power and therefore, produces less heat. The only downside of the Yoga 3 pro is its high price. All that aside, the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is surely a glimpse of the future in laptop design and innovation.

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.
5Y70:

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.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.202 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.


76.02%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
