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

Lenovo uses Yoga style to craft a speedy, stylish ThinkPad ultrabook, but Yoga tablet modes don't offer enough for business users.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review

 

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

 

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...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga contorts into new screen sizes, adds new CPUs

 

With a clever mechanical keyboard that solves the main complaint about the Yoga line, the ThinkPad Yoga is the best of both worlds.

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.
