Lenovo Yoga 3 14 review

 

An elegant and affordable, but weak laptop

Sleek design ; Long battery life ; Flexibility

Poor performance ; Heavy weight

If you're a fan of Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro, and you don't mind sacrificing portability for a bit more power, then the Yoga 3 14 is a safe bet. But if you're going for optimum performance, you might want to consider other more powerful hybrids.

Lenovo Yoga 3 14 review

 

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro 's design, with its watchband-like single hinge constructed of more than 800 individual pieces of steel and aluminum and fanless chassis measuring a mere 12.8mm thick, is strikingly different from its predecessors. The Yoga 3 14,...

The Lenovo Yoga 3 14 has all the flexibility of past Yoga hybrid laptops, going from clamshell to tablet and back again. The configuration options are very good for its sub-$1,000 price; it gets more than 8 hours of battery life; and has excellent...

The display doesn't get very bright, which could be a problem for outdoor use. Its battery life, while excellent, is shorter than similarly configured models from Dell and HP.

With better battery life and performance than the Yoga 3 Pro (not to mention a lower price), the Yoga 3 14 is one of the best hybrid deals around.

Lenovo Yoga 3 14 (MultiTouch, 2.40GHz 1600MHz 4MB)

 

Like past models, the Yoga 3 14 looks like a standard thin-and-light clamshell, but its two hinges allow you to rotate the screen 360 degrees back, turning it into a tablet . What's new for the line is the 14-inch screen size, which is all the more...

Lenovo Yoga 3 14

 

The Yoga 3 14 is a large-screen convertible-hybrid laptop with Lenovo's vaunted 360-degree hinge. It's a good system in a category with fierce competition.

Innovative hinge mechanism. Full HD display with 10-point touch. Nine hours of battery life in testing.

Feels huge in Tablet mode. Shallow keys on keyboard. Aggressive dimming by the adaptive brightness function. Proprietary micro HDMI port requires dongle. Bloatware.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 14 shows improvements over the 13-inch Lenovo Yoga 2 13, like a larger screen, while retaining a thin profile and its 360-degree Yoga hinge. It's a well-equipped laptop whose convertible form factor offers greater flexibility in terms...

Lenovo Yoga 3 14

 

When it comes to 2-in-1s, Lenovo is the leader -- it's sold more convertible notebooks than any other company. The Yoga 3 Pro is Lenovo's current flagship hybrid, but at $1,299, it requires a hefty premium. Thankfully, the standard Yoga 3 14 is a more...

Lenovo Yoga 3 14 Review

 

Flexible multimode design; Rich JBL stereo speakers; Strong battery life

Dim screen; Runs warm on bottom

The Yoga 3 14 is a solid 2-in-1 with a flexible design, long battery life and quality speakers, but the display doesn't shine.

Lenovo Yoga 3 (14-inch) review: A 2-in-1 worth considering for mainstream users

 

The Lenovo Yoga 3 14-inch comes with an Intel 5th gen Core i7 processor along with 8GB of RAM and a discrete Nvidia GeForce 940M graphics card

The Lenovo Yoga 3 14-inch model is priced at Rs 86,990 which may seem like a high price. But the appealing factors for this laptop include the slim form factor and light weight, which will come at a premium. This immediately makes it a laptop to...

Lenovo Yoga 3 14 (GT 940M) Convertible Review

The concept of the review unit is promising: There is a perfect operating mode for every scenario thanks to the compact dimensions and the 360-degree display hinge. The mainstream GeForce GPU also provides a decent gaming performance. The display...

Review: Lenovo Yoga 3 14 convertible laptop

 

Lenovo has another Yoga notebook very similar to the ThinkPad Yoga 14 we recently reviewed, and it's called the Lenovo Yoga 3 14. The increasingly convoluted names aside, the Yoga 3 14 is a bigger version of the Yoga 3 11-inch model, bringing with it...

If you’re familiar with Lenovo’s laptops, particularly with its new Yoga machines, then you’ll find the Yoga 3 14 feels like something you’ve seen before, but with its own little tweaks that make it unique. In this case, it’s the brushed metal surface...
