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: 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...

The Yoga's keyboard assumes a new position

 

The keyboard no longer sticks out when in tablet mode, but the extra high-res display of the Yoga 2 Pro is missing.

The ; 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 460 Review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 has a great stylus, long battery life and useful software, but its performance and keyboard are lacking.

Good battery life; Accurate stylus; MIL-STD 810G tested; Includes useful software

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 Review: Business-class Flexibility

 

This 2-in-1 manages to deliver the durability and ports that businesses need while also keeping the travel weight as light as possible for employees. Keep reading to find out if this convertible Ultrabook is as good as it looks.

Business class build quality ; Impressively thin and light for its specs ; Great keyboard and TrackPoint controls

Battery life could be better ; Pen is a little small for adult hands ; Wide bezel around the screen

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

 

Lenovo has popped up with a handful of new products recently, among them being the ThinkPad Yoga, a flexible hybrid laptop with a touchscreen panel that can fold all the way back into a tablet-like mode. This follows the ThinkPad X240 we reviewed last...

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 —...

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
