The aluminum-clad Lenovo convertible may be designed for businesses, but it works just as well for home users, too. It'll be tough to find another 13.3-inch convertible as light as this one with the same CPU and for the same price.

Lenovo Yoga laptops represent the slimmest and sleekest that the company has to offer in comparison to the more budget-oriented IdeaPad laptops. As of this writing, Best Buy has the 13.3-inch Yoga 6 convertible on sale for $150 off the original $700 USD asking price.

What makes this deal notable is that the laptop is one of the few to come with the Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U CPU instead of the usual Ryzen 5 4600U. The AMD PRO series is comparable to the Intel vPro series in terms of integrated IT features designed for businesses. Raw processor performance is slightly slower than the Ryzen 5 4600U as a result of the security overhead, but that doesn't mean home office users or students can't take advantage of the deal as well especially since the Ryzen 5 series is neck-to-neck with pricier Intel 10th gen Core i7 laptops.

The biggest drawbacks to the laptop are the scant 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. Though the latter is upgradeable, the former is unfortunately fixed for the life of the product. We also don't expect very accurate colors as users will have to spend more on the Yoga 7 series for such features. Owners will have to rely on USB-C adapters as there is no integrated HDMI port.

We have yet to review the Lenovo Yoga 6 and so we cannot offer our personal take on the system and its features.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
