Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 open

If you're on the fence about picking up the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, we're here to help you out. Take a look at these expert and community reviews of the slim convertible laptop, and get a general feel for what it has to offer.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a flexible, light laptop that offers a variety of layouts. Prop it up as a tent, fold back the keyboard to have it as a stand, bend it all the way back for one-handed use, or keep the keyboard in front as a traditional laptop. As it stands, the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is the thinnest convertible ultrabook in the world at half an inch thick and 2.6 pounds. The 13.3-inch touchscreen offers a 3200 x 1800 resolution, and includes a front-facing camera for your video calls. Under the hood is a 1.2 GHz Core M processor with 8 GB of RAM. Storage includes a 256 GB SSD, plus whatever you plug into the two USB 3.0 ports, or integrated SD card reader.

"If battery life is not your biggest concern, then the Yoga 3 Pro is certainly worth checking out. It offers incredible versatility due to the design, and it has made some nice improvements for the new model."

Gizmodo

Score:

"It's not as fast and doesn't boast nearly as much battery life as other PCs in its price range, and everything Lenovo sacrificed to make it thin and light is basically nullified by it being a pain in the ass to use."

PC Mag

Score: 8

"This is one of the best ultraportables we've seen."

CNET

Score: 7

"The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro has a breakthrough design, but requires careful consideration of the trade-offs required, particularly battery life."

Score: 7

"The Yoga 3 Pro ultimately fails to live up to its high price tag once you get past the attractive exterior."

Engadget

Score: 8.4

"The Yoga remains the most versatile Ultrabook on the market, with a sturdy 360-degree hinge, brilliant screen and zippy performance."

Our take

Though the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a slim, versatile laptop, but for the money you're better off going with the Surface Pro 3.
