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 Yoga S1 Review: Market Elasticity

 

The ThinkPad Yoga S1 is a well-made business convertible with a beautiful flexible display, but it lacks the connectivity to be a true enterprise force.

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 ingeniously designed 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

Citrix NetScaler, the best application delivery controller (ADC) for building enterprise cloud networks, is a solution delivering an extensive portfolio of essential datacenter security capabilities.

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

 

Lenovo's Yoga hybrid line has already gone through several iterations, from the original, fold-back screen version, to the 3,200x1,800 Yoga 2 Pro , to the recently announced lower-cost Yoga 2 .

The ThinkPad Yoga has an innovative vanishing keyboard that solves a major hybrid problem. Construction, battery life, and ergonomics are up to Lenovo's typical high standards.

The screen is smaller and lacks the higher resolution of the similar Yoga 2 Pro. The hidden keyboard adds mechanical complexity to what should be a rugged road system. The upgrades you'll want drive the price up quickly.

Lenovo solves half the Yoga equation with a clever hidden keyboard on the ThinkPad Yoga. If we could combine this with the higher-res screen and better looks of the consumer version, we'd have the ultimate hybrid.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: a good (if slightly heavy) Ultrabook for business users

 

It's pretty clear that Lenovo made a bit of a mistake with its original Yoga laptop. Don't get us wrong, we liked -- no, loved -- it, but we could never

Well-built, versatile design ; Low-glare screen offers good viewing angles ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; One of the few Ultrabooks to support pen input ; Fast boot-up time, good all-around performance

Relatively bulky ; Self-flattening keyboard seems less useful on a machine that's this cumbersome to use in tablet mode ; Base model has a fairly low-res screen ; Battery life is on the short side

The ThinkPad Yoga's self-flattening keyboard is a neat idea, but it would make more sense on a smaller machine. All told, you can easily find Ultrabooks that offer sharper screens, longer battery life and comparable performance -- sometimes for about...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Review

 

The ThinkPad Yoga is a hybrid machine with a lot to offer users as both a laptop and as a tablet, though in slate mode it is thicker than what you'd get with a traditional tablet. There is nothing ill to speak of regarding the ThinkPad Yoga --...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Review

 

The ThinkPad Yoga is a well-designed business hybrid with a rotating full HD display, excellent keyboard and long battery life.

Colorful, full HD screen; Responsive keyboard; Innovative, bendable design; Long battery life

Screen is fingerprint magnet; Relatively slow SSD; Limited port selection for business notebook

The ThinkPad Yoga is a well-designed business hybrid with a rotating full HD display, excellent keyboard and long battery life.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Convertible Review: Business Flexibility

 

The next candidate in our barrage of ThinkPad reviews is the ThinkPad Yoga, which, at first glance, might seem a little bit redundant. After all, we've already got three current-gen Yoga models to choose from between the Yoga 2 11- and 13-inch...

Signature Yoga folding keyboard with keys no longer exposed in tablet mode, Strong performance and sound system, Great-looking full HD display

Pricey, Short on ports, Weak, low-res Webcam

Still, this is one great convertible. You get all the business accoutrements of the ThinkPad—durability, comfort, and so on—as well as the versatility of a Yoga. We understand that it's a huge risk to make drastic changes to products so well ensconced...
