PROS

  • The Yoga 3 Pro's 13.3-inch, 3800 x 1200 resolution IPS touch display is gorgeous and at 318 nits, it is brighter than the Yoga 2 Pro.
  • The laptop's different modes offer a lot of versatility. You can switch between laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes.
  • A new hinge and thinner overall size contribute to an attractive design.

CONS

  • Battery life on the Yoga 3 Pro is right around what the Yoga 2 Pro was, which isn't a good thing.
  • Shallow keys on the Yoga 3 Pro make it less than ideal for long-form typing. Making matters worse, Lenovo used a screwy layout that combines the F keys with the number row.
  • The Yoga 3 Pro has a premium price tag, but aside from its stellar display, it doesn't perform like a premium device.
Lenovo’s latest hybrid Windows laptop has an attractive all-new hinge. It supports multiple modes, including laptop, stand, tent, and tablet. The Yoga 3 Pro is powered by an Intel Core M processor and is available with 256GB or 512GB of flash storage. Its 3200 x 1800 resolution 13.3-inch touch screen is driven by Intel’s integrated HD Graphics 5300 chip. Ports include two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and a combo DC/USB 2.0 port. It also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 and AC wireless.

The power button's location caused us to accidentally press it several times while using the Lenovo, especially in tablet mode.

I found the trackpad “click” to be quite stiff. Again, there’s pressure from the ultra-thin design to make things move as little as possible in the vertical axis, but I really prefer having a bit more of a physical feedback when I click. People who like “tapping” will probably not mind at all.

As great as the design of the Yoga 3 Pro can be for media consumption, the speakers leave a lot to be desired.

The Yoga is certainly a beautifully designed hybrid, but I still favor the Surface Pro 3 in this category, as it feels sturdier and more solid than the Yoga.

Imagine the thinnest, lightest tablet you possibly can. That’s the Yoga 3 Pro’s screen.

Most disappointingly, Lenovo has continued its long-standing practice of messing with keyboards. The keyboard has shed its row of function keys, instead requiring the use of Fn-key combinations to do simple things such as hit F5 to reload a Web page, or F1 for help.
