Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro convertible 13.3” Ultrabook with a 360 degree “watchband” hinge and a 3200 x 1800 touch screen. The Yoga 3 Pro is all about being slim and light, and at 2.6 lbs. (1.2 kg) and 0.5” (12.7mm) it is one of the most portable 13” models on the market.
The machine runs on the Intel Broadwell Y series 5th generation Core M-5Y70 CPU with a base clock speed of 1.1GHz and Turbo Boost to 2.7GHz. It benchmarks close to the last gen Core i5 U-4200 CPU. It has 8 gigs of RAM, and is available with a 256 or 512 gig SSD. It has a 44 Whr battery, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, a backlit keyboard, stereo speakers and is available in silver, clementine orange and champagne gold. The 256 gig model lists for $1,379 and the 512 gig is $1,749, but you’ll find it priced lower on Lenovo’s web site and at Best Buy.
