Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: Yoga flexibility melded with ThinkPad muscle

Becky Waring | Feb. 12, 2014
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga isn't as slim or sexy as its colorful consumer-oriented sibling, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro, nor does it have the Yoga 2 Pro's alluring 3820-by-1200-pixel display. But this hybrid Ultrabook checks all the must-have business feature boxes, as befits its place in the ThinkPad lineup. And it does so in typical Yoga style.

Battery life came in at a so-so 5 hours and 40 minutes, which is slightly better than the Yoga 2 Pro's 5:29, but more than an hour less than Dell's comparably priced and similarly equipped XPS 12 Convertible, (although the XPS 12 doesn't have that useful pen digitizer).

Business users will appreciate the ThinkPad Yoga for its rugged design, double-jointed hinge, versatile dock, better-than-average performance, and vaunted ThinkPad keyboard. Now if Lenovo could just shoehorn an ultra-high-res display into a more-attractive housing, they'd have a hybrid Ultrabook with flash as well as substance.
