Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Review

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.

  • Used this laptop for a total of four years, it did not hold up well.

    – Battery lost most of its charge capacity.
    – Screen, keyboard, or trackpad would cease working after the laptop went to sleep, requiring a complete power reset.
    – CPU did not have enough power in 2019 to be able to run multiple basic applications (Chrome with a few tabs, Word, SumatraPDF) without sever chugging.
    – Original charger brick became defective and would only charge when prongs were at a certain angle
    – Glossy screen would reflect anything in even the lowest lighting
    – Touch screen was often inaccurate and would require recalibration.

    I should have just stuck with my Dell Inspiron N5110 from 2011, as that is strong as my office PC, the only downsides being its resolution, weight, and battery capacity.

  • I hate how all this technology fancy shit is expensive as fuck, if it was the "future now" their prices would be regular, because let's be honest, half or more the price of these tech devices is because they are fancy tools with inovative tech that won't actually inovate anything until they lower their prices, it's just another fancy tool in the current and crappy age of capitalism

  • i had to disagree that lenovo made a durable laptop, even it's a thinkpad line. i own a thinkpad T440, and i can tell that you could press your finger the back of the lcd, and the lcd would become white on the pressed area. press more, and the lcd could sustain pressure damage, which will void warranty of course. i didnt have this problem with zbook though

  • So what's a point of that screen resolution, when you can't run it at native resolution without scaling because text will be to small to read, and with scaling is basically same as 1080p screen; it just eats more power to run all those pixels… And from usual viewing distances, there is no person in world that can spot difference in pixel density on screen of that size. I have 27'' dell monitor with 2560×1440 px resolution, and sitting at arms length from monitor there is no chance for me to spot "pixels", so I'm sure there will be even less chance to spot pixels on 13.3'' monitor and "just" 1080p resolution screen.

  • I will only be using my laptop for photoshop/photo editing and watching movies in bed. I want it to be portable and light hence I am looking at this computer (and I don't like using Mac). 
    Would you recommend the Yoga 2 or the Yoga 3 more?
    Does the Yoga 2's colour rendition (yellows) make it a no go for photo editing? And do the yellow fixes work the 2?
    Thank you for your reviews…I have spent many hours trying to make the right choice.

  • @MobileTechReview  I have a personal question since im considering to buy this laptop. When you unfold or push the screen to the back as you show in your video 3:48, What happens with the keyboard. Yes its on the bottom but when you're holding it, does it still function? is there a possibility that when its on your lap for example and something in your pocket pokes the buttons it responds?

  • Per CNN Money,

    Lenovo slipped 'Superfish' malware into laptops.

    Computer maker Lenovo has been shipping laptops prepackaged with malware that makes you more vulnerable to hackers — all for the sake of serving you advertisements.

    Made by a company called "Superfish," the software is essentially an Internet browser add-on that injects ads onto websites you visit.

    Besides taking up space in your Lenovo computer, the add-on is also dangerous because it undermines basic computer security protocols.

    That's because it tampers with a widely-used system of official website certificates. That makes it hard for your computer to recognize a fake bank website, for instance.

    It's a nasty trick — the same one that the in-flight Wi-Fi service Gogo was caught doing last month.

    "This is exactly what bad guys do with trojans and other malicious software to trick users to access fake sites to surveil/monitor private communications," said Kevin Bocek, an executive at cybersecurity company Venafi.

    Customers started spotting this on their Lenovo computers in mid-2014.

    After facing a fierce backlash by customers and computer security experts this week, Lenovo on Thursday acknowledged as much.

    "User feedback was not positive," so Lenovo stopped preloading the software on new computers in January, a company spokesman said. Lenovo also promised it "will not preload this software in the future" and said it disabled the feature on its servers, which essentially kills the program on everyone's computer.

    The company initially claimed it only included Superfish on "some consumer notebook products shipped in a short window between October and December." When CNNMoney noted that customers started complaining about this feature earlier than that, Lenovo acknowledged that factory installations of Superfish started back in September.

    Lenovo lists 43 different models that were affected, including several of its Flex, E-, G-, S-, U-, Y- and Z-series laptops and several Miix and Yoga tablets.
