The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is here, and it doesn’t disappoint. After Sony’s exit stage left, Lenovo has been carrying the torch for innovations in design and style on the PC front.
And the company launched the anticipated convertible machine at its London event.
The Windows 8.1 powered machine takes advantage of the new Intel Core M Broadwell processor, and just like its famous predecessor, the Yoga 3 Pro is a premium machine. The 13.3-inch IPS screen whizzes along at an advanced 3200 x 1800 pixels resolution.
Processing duties are handled by the Core M 5Y70 chip, which works in tandem with 8GB of RAM.
Lenovo offers a choice of storage, with 512GB solid state drive to go with a 256GB option, the former obviously costing more. Speaking of solid, battery time clocks in at a very respectable 9 hours. And this is rather nice considering the display this device houses.
Three color options are on offer — Champagne Gold and Platinum Silver join the Clementine Orange.
Keeping in mind the fact that this device makes user of the Broadwell (and Core M) architecture, it is one of the thinnest and lightest pieces of hardware you can buy. Expect to fork a fair amount of dough for it, though.
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro goes on sale for $1,350 and up. However, the previous generation Yoga 2 Pro with Intel Haswell chip can still be had for around the $850 mark.
