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...

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

With the ThinkPad Yoga Lenovo has successfully ported the innovative 360-degree hinge design of its consumer Yogas to a durable, powerful business laptop. Even without its tablet, tent and presentation modes, the ThinkPad Yoga's comfy keyboard,...

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...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review

 

Work meets play in Lenovo's snappy, sightly business ultrabook

Gorgeous thin design ; Fantastic performance ; Brilliant FHD touch screen ; Brand new keyboard tech

Little use for tablet modes ; Sacrifices I/O for form factor ; Short on storage to start ; Pricey by comparison

Again, the ThinkPad Yoga is one of slickest business ultrabooks I've seen yet. Not once did I feel ashamed to draw this sharp system out of my bag amid an army of MacBook Airs. IBM devotees might scoff at such a thin and light ThinkPad, but it will no...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review

 

The solidly-built keyboard uses Lenovo's distinctive ‘accutype' design, with moulded keys that are comfortable to use for long periods. The trackpad is a little small, but there's also a pointer located on the keyboard so you can use that if you prefer.

ThinkPad Yoga is a well-designed and versatile convertible device, with a high-quality IPS display that will particularly appeal to business travelers who need to give presentations when they’re visiting clients. However, the use of a sluggish hard...

This Yoga master pulls off a very surprising move, solving one of the main issues with hybrid Ultrabook/Tablets.

Sinking key design stops accidental key presses in tablet mode ; Crisp HD touchscreen ; Solid performance

Expensive ; Could use a dedicated GPU

As far as Hybrids go, the Yoga solves one of the main issues faced by those using folding screens thanks to its clever keyboard design. Best of all, this doesn't compromise the excellent feel offered by Lenovo keyboards. It's a little bit pricey given...
