Review Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Convertible

 

Business hybrid. Lenovo's new 12.5-inch ThinkPad Yoga borrows the 360-degree folding screen design from the consumer-oriented IdeaPad-line and adapts it for business use. Does the versatile Ultrabook convertible with its innovative usage-modes still...

Good build quality, Very bright screen, Versatile and innovative design, Decent performance, Excellent keyboard and mouse, The Lift n' Lock design which protects the keyboard in tablet mode

Slightly heavy, Ethernet port only via docking station, Display bounces a little, A slightly longer battery life. A display that doesn't dim at all on battery

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga OLED Review: Beauty and a Beast of a Price

 

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga OLED is eye candy in the best possible way. Read this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga OLED review to see if it's worth its hefty price tag.

Outstanding OLED screen ; Impressive battery life ; Business-class thin and light ; Excellent keyboard

Expensive ; Frustratingly small pen ; RAM is not upgradeable ; No USB Type-C or Thunderbolt

Whether or not you decide to purchase this device boils down to one thing: Do you value having one of the best-looking screens you can find on any notebook?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 Review

 

A Swiss Army knife of a business laptop, the ThinkPad Yoga 460 offers multiple functions. You can use it in notebook, tablet or tent mode, and it comes with a pen for taking notes or making quick sketches. We also appreciate the solid 8-plus hours of...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1 Review: Market Elasticity

 

The new ThinkPad Yoga S1 offers a durable build, solid performance and an attractive IPS touch display. This laptop looks to offer something for everyone, but will the device stretch itself too thin? Read the full review to find out.

attractive display ; high-quality keyboard ; flexible hinge design ; solid performance

limited port selection ; poor audio quality

Melding features from the consumer Yoga line and the business ThinkPad line affords the Yoga S1 a great deal of flexibility, but it comes at the cost of some core business features. With a high-quality keyboard, an attractive durable build and strong...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: A flexible hybrid tablet

 

The ThinkPad Yoga is heavy and short of on-board connectors, an Ethernet port being the most glaring omission. Otherwise it's difficult to fault this flexible hybrid tablet.

Solid chassis ; Superb IPS touchscreen ; Great multimodal use options ; Excellent keyboard protection in tablet mode

Heavy ; Unwieldy in tablet mode ; No on-board Ethernet port

There are only two things we dislike about the ThinkPad Yoga. It's heavy, which will be particularly noticeable if you need to carry it a lot and/or work standing up with the notebook in tablet mode. It's also short of on-board connectors — an Ethernet...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: Yoga flexibility melded with ThinkPad muscle

 

A business laptop that can do downward-facing dog with the best of them.

360-degree hinged touchscreen ; Pressure-sensitive Wacomn stylus ; Rugged enclosure ; Available docking station

Display choices top out at 1920 by 1080 ; So-so battery life ; Thicker and heavier many of its competitors

This business-oriented Ultrabook hybrid is a successful marriage of Yoga design and ThinkPad durability, features, and docking options.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga hybrid ultrabook brings the Yoga multimode design to the business-focused ThinkPad lineup.

Multimode design is a first for the business-focused ThinkPad. Boasts an Intel Core i5-4200U processor, a 128GB SSD, and perks like 802.11AC WLAN and a stylus for high-accuracy tasks.

Middling performance.

Conclusion While there's a lot to like about the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga—especially the introduction of Lenovo's excellent multimode design into the business realm—the fact remains that it falls short when compared with similar ThinkPad models and...
