Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 review

 

Pretty and powerful

Powerful new processor ; Thin frame ; WQHD monitor

Very heavy ; Boring keyboard ; You'll want to upgrade

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 is powerful and pretty enough to warrant consideration. Although it's a tad bit heavy, it's a thin and capable laptop worthy of your consideration.

  (Rating Hidden)

It may be the entry-level option in Lenovo's range of business laptops, but that doesn't mean the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 lacks credentials. Find out if it's the laptop for you by seeing out how it did in our labyrinth of lab tests.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 Review

 

The ThinkPad Yoga 460 may be Lenovo's most adaptable laptop to date. Armed with a 360-degree display and digitizer pen, this laptop serves as a business notebook and tablet. Read on to find out if it's right for you.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 is a well rounded device with a useful stylus, durable 360-degree design, and excellent battery life, but the middling performance and reflective display keep it from being a market leader.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 Convertible Review

 

Yoga for the office. Lenovo recently launched the new ThinkPad Yoga 460. The 14-inch convertible is primarily aimed at business customers. Find out in our extensive test what Lenovo has to offer, and whether it can fulfill the high demands of the...

slim and well-built casing, good IPS multitouch panel, good system performance, SSD as system storage device present, decent input devices, sophisticated keyboard lock in tablet mode, very quiet even during full load, good battery life, stylus...

no maintenance hatch, non-removable battery, some interfaces too close, fingerprint-receptive casing surface, 12-month warranty only, high price

Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 460 is an enduring 14-inch convertible made for business routine. Thanks to the new Skylake processors, the performance has been increased by about 10% compared with the former lineup based on Broadwell CPUs. However, a business...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 review: Solid Ultrabook performance

 

We're back with another Lenovo review. This time we have our hands on the ThinkPad Yoga 460 business class Ultrabook that's classy-looking & packs a punch.

Solid design, solid materials, amazing screen, converts to tablet, strong performance.

Can get heavy in tablet mode, fingerprint prone screen.

A solid Ultrabook for business use and an amazing home machine if you so choose to buy it for that purpose. We recommend splurging for the 16GB of RAM and sticking with the Core i5 unless you plan on some heavier video editing. Put the Lenovo ThinkPad...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 Review and Ratings

 

The ThinkPad Yoga 460 is a flexible convertible that doesn't sacrifice the trademark ruggedness of the ThinkPad laptop line.

Multiple modes make for a versatile laptop ; ThinkPad ruggedness ; Keyboard is protected in stand, tablet and tent modes ; Top-notch keyboard, touch pad and TrackPoint

Decent, but not stellar, performance ; Like most big-screen 2-in-1s, a bit unwieldy in tablet mode ; Silver model lacks anti-glare display option, fingerprint reader

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 is a workhorse. It has few unusual features, and its performance neither surprised nor disappointed us, but the laptop is both versatile and sturdy. We’d expect this beast to weather hectic workdays and business-travel...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 Review: Everything is Alright

 

Locking keyboard ; Build Quality ; Processing Power and Options ; Notebook First Design ; Wealth of Ports

ThinkPad Pro Pen is too tiny and feels unnatural in the hand ; Physical Windows button when Windows Now supports on-screen buttons ; Silver model is very, very susceptible to glare ; Heft

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review period took a turn for me after the first day. I’m used to companies promising all-day battery life at this point. I’m also used to them not necessarily delivering on that.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 TCH

 

The 2-in-1 is quite solid and can tap on the screen in either mode without it shaking too much. The battery life is insane, I can sometimes do a full days work on a single charge, and when I do need to charge it up, it takes around 30 mins to reach 95%...

The pen, although it works, it isn't very comfortable to hold, I would prefer something a bit fatter, maybe heavier also so I can get a good grip instead of holding it like a delicate flower. The screen resolution is sometimes off, but thats because I...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 20EM

 

I love it, for the money it is wonderful. The touch screen and pen are a joy to use. Especially working on onenote. Looking forward to using the pen's full capabilities on a decent art app.

It's too heavy to use as a hand held tablet very often. Occasionally would be fine. If you have the money get the qhd screen and lighter ultrabook.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 20EM

 

Excellent screen and power, great design. Tablet mode useful for meeting notes using the included pen.

Just a little weighty for the size of it
