Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro hands-on

SAMSUNG CSC The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is a premium multimode PC with a new watchband hinge design for a strikingly thinner and lighter convertible computing experience. A successor to last years award-winning Yoga 2 Pro, the Yoga 3 pro pushes the envelope even further.. The eye-catching six hinge design upgrades from previous two focus-point models, so users can enjoy an even thinner and lighter machine. YOGA 3 Pro also features Harmony, new adaptive software that provides users a new way to discover apps in each mode (Laptop, Stand, Tent and Tablet) and allows users to customize settings for their favorite apps.

The new 13-in YOGA 3 Pro uniquely address users’ desires for an extremely stylish device, best-in-breed performance capabilities and the hardware and software adaptability they crave. The YOGA 3 Pro provides this and more: an unbelievably thin and light frame with new watchband hinge design, a QHD+ screen and Harmony, Lenovo’s intuitive software that adapts to users’ personal preferences as they use the device in its different modes. While the YOGA 2 Pro became synonymous with thin and light, the new YOGA 3 Pro takes this concept even further by shaving 17 percent from its predecessor’s frame at just 12.8 mm thin – thinner than a pencil when opened. The PC also comes in lighter at 1.19kg – 14 percent less than before – lighter than a bottle of water. The device achieves this incredibly thin and light design thanks to Lenovo’s new watchband hinge constructed from more than 800 pieces of steel and aluminum. Lenovo engineers redesigned the original YOGA hinge so that it now provides the same degree of flexibility and flatness seen in metallic watch bands. Instead of two focus points, there are now six. Complementing the distinctive new hinge design, the YOGA 3 Pro is available in three eye-catching colors: Clementine Orange, Platinum Silver or Champagne Gold.

The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is available beginning at the end of October via Best Buy and www.lenovo.com. Models start at MSRP $1,349 USD.
