ThinkPad Yoga Review
The ThinkPad Yoga Easily change between four modes — Laptop, Stand, Tablet, and Tent — while your system automatically switches system settings and locks the keyboard in place. The secret: ThinkPad Yoga’s unique design and touchscreen display allows the screen to flip around 360 degrees, which means you can select the mode you use based on what you choose to do. Its build is that of durable magnesium-alloy frame and heavy-duty, scratch- and smudge-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass display. With a 12.5″ FHD 10-point multitouch display — optimized for Windows 8.1.
The ThinkPad Yoga brings all the great features of the Yoga line into the super durability of the ThinkPad. In creating a product that is light weight, durable and functional. ThinkPad Yoga’s innovative lift-and-lock keyboard fits the bill. When your Yoga switches between modes, the keyboard frame automatically rises and the keys lock, eliminating accidental keystrokes and providing a more comfortable grip.. Battery life is excellent with 8hrs of use; the one down side to the Thinkpad Yoga is the bulk of the build. yes it is light in weight, but the laptop feels bulky and hopefully that is something that should change in the second generation of the device. Overall the ThinkPad Yoga is a solid addition to the ThinkPad line with the fresh additive of the Yoga line with a starting price at $949
