Variety is the spice of life. Nobody would be happy with just one flavor of ice cream, a single car, or the monotony of a single video game. Thankfully, we don't live in a world like that, so even premium 2-in-1 laptops come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Today we're going to take a look at Lenovo's Yoga C940 convertible notebook, which is a bit different than some of the other foldable computers we have evaluated over the last few months. You see, the C940 is one of the bigger convertibles around. It's got a full 14-inch display and ample bezels, all of which make it larger than the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 or HP's Elite Dragonfly. There are trade-offs here, to be sure, like a bigger footprint... Read more...
On paper, the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon) laptop doesn't seem to stand out much, save for perhaps the somewhat unique system processor under its hood. Regardless, as an affordable, always-on, always-connected convertible PC with middle-of-the-road specs and benchmark scores (more on this later), you might be forgiven for thinking that there's little reason for this machine to be remarkable in any significant way. And yet, the Lenovo Yoga C630 is impressive indeed. This machine is always connected (with a mobile data plan), it boots up (and shuts down) almost instantly, it breezes through typical office tasks, streams YouTube and Netflix videos with nary a stutter (on both...

When Lenovo launched the Yoga 910, it was beautifully styled, powerful enough for most mobile users, and it offered reasonably good battery life. However, the public reception of the 2-in-1 convertible was a bit mixed and perhaps not quite what the company had hoped for. Some critics took issue with the Yoga 910's thermal characteristics, fan noise, and its awkwardly-placed upward-facing web cam. However, Lenovo took this feedback into consideration and developed the new Yoga 920 we'll be showing you here. From the outside, the Yoga 910 and 920 look similar at first glance, but there are a multitude of significant updates that improve the machine in a number of ways. Nestled inside an all-aluminum...

The holiday season may be winding down, but we want to keep you all in the holiday spirit just a little longer, so we hooked up with our friends at Lenovo for another HOT Holiday Giveaway! This time around we have not one, but three awesome prizes -- a gorgeous, yet powerful ultrabook, a small form factor gaming PC, and a super-fun Augmented Reality gaming kit. Up for grabs in this latest HOT Holiday giveaway are a Lenovo Yoga 920, powered by an 8th Generation Intel processor, a Lenovo Legion Y720 Cube gaming PC, and a Lenovo Star Wars Jedi Challenges AR kit. Take a look... 1st Prize: Yoga 920 14" - Platinum Silver Processor: Intel Core i7-8550U Processor (1.80GHz 8MB) Display: 13.9" FHD IPS... Read more...
One could argue that the two primary features of a modern laptop, that can most prominently define the user experience, would be its display and keyboard. After all, these two aspects make up the majority of a notebook PC's human-computer interface. If that's the case, then Lenovo's latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 2) with OLED display has a rather unfair advantage. As we've noted in the past, Lenovo has some of the best laptop keyboards in the business, at least in terms of usability and feel. And when you couple a 14-inch OLED (Organic LED) display with one of the best laptop keyboard designs on the market, you're definitely starting with a winning combination. Of course, the keyboard and display... Read more...
Lenovo just cruised into this year’s Mobile World Congress with three new Windows 10 convertibles. The Miix 320, Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 all feature versatile designs and varying screen sizes to match your specific productivity needs. The first of the lot is the Miix 320, which comes with a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 display. If you need to settle down at your desk to get work done, you can use it in notebook mode with the included full-size keyboard. However, if you’d rather veg out on the couch and surf the internet or check out a few YouTube videos, you can detach the tablet from the keyboard base for more freedom. Lenovo Miix 320 The Miix 320 is powered by an Intel Atom X5 processor, up to 4GB of... Read more...
Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet form factors. Some tablet-first devices, like the 2016 version of the Dell XPS 12 and the Lenovo ThinkPad... Read more...
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga. The X1 Carbon line was introduced in 2012, bringing a largely carbon-fiber filled construction to decrease weight and increase durability compared to their previous X1 ultrabooks, while still maintaining the classic ThinkPad design established way back by IBM. The ThinkPad Yoga line, introduced a year later in 2013, consists of smaller 11 and 13 inch 2-in-1 form factors with a reinforced hinge capable of folding beyond 180 degrees into tent, stand or even tablet modes. Larger Yoga models are now available as well.  Unlike the X1 Carbon, the ThinkPad Yoga maintained... Read more...

As we covered earlier today, Lenovo has completely revamped their ThinkPad product lines for business and professional types, with not only the latest in platform technologies from Intel and others, like Skylake mobile CPUs and PCIe SSDs, but also some solid design updates and key feature additions. More and more, ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo are taking on design cues and features that were brought to market with the advent of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The new 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon is now both thinner and lighter at just 2.6 pounds, with Intel Skylake on board and an NVMe PCI Express SSD offering up gobs of bandwidth. However, what could be apple of our eye, no pun intended, is the... Read more...
Although the Consumer Electronics Show hasn’t officially started just yet, many exhibitors are already setup and demoing their latest wares at various locations away from the convention center. Our first stop today was at Lenovo’s suite, where the company was showing off a wide array of products, from mainstream, thin and light notebooks to powerful, multi-GPU powered gaming systems. We’ve got a few of Lenovo’s product announcements already posted if you’d like some additional reading and will have a companion hands on video going up shortly featuring Lenovo’s new business-class Thinkpads, including the hot new Thinkpad Carbon X1 Yoga with OLED display. Here... Read more...
What a difference a year can make. Now that Intel's Skylake processors are widely available, desktop, tablets, and hybrid convertibles are all being refreshed with the latest hardware. Lenovo, for example, recently introduced its Yoga 900. Though the nomenclature has changed a bit, this machine  is effectively a revised Yoga 3 Pro. The unique watchband hinge should all but give it away; it's the token feature on a potent, high-powered machine that acts first and foremost as a laptop, and secondarily as a slate. That's something we've also seen recently from Microsoft with its Surface Book and a few other machines. Rather than crafting a tablet and hoping that it could take the... Read more...
It may be a bit too early to be shopping for the holidays just yet, but doing a little research never hurts, particularly if you’re in the market for a new mobile device. Tablet makers are continually in the process of slimming down their devices and boosting battery life, even in the entry-level space, where products like the Android-based Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 play. Lenovo gave this tablet an aggressive price point of $169.99 and designed it for entertainment use, which ought to make the Yoga Tab 3 8 appealing to a broad range of potential consumers. So, we decided to take the tablet for a spin and see if it has something to offer savvy, frugal consumers this holiday season...Lenovo bills the... Read more...
Earlier this year, we took a look at Lenovo’s innovative YOGA Tablet 2 Pro that features a built-in projector. If that tablet caught your eye, but its size was just too big for your tastes or it's price was too high for your budget, the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 may be a better option. This smaller tablet features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1920x1200 and a price tag under $250. As you might expect, there are quite a few similarities between the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro and the YOGA Tablet 2. A quick look at the specifications of both models reveals the same 4th generation Intel Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. You’ll also notice both tablets feature a unique hinge which enables them to be... Read more...
Not everyone needs the extra level of “robustness” that comes with Think-branded laptops, tablets, and all-in-ones, so Lenovo luckily provides some cheaper alternatives for folks that don’t want to break the bank. Lenovo is taking the opportunity to roll out a revamped lineup of FLEX 3 convertibles, TAB 2 tablets, and all-in-one desktops that cover a wide variety of affordable price points. The first entry into the field is the new FLEX 3 lineup, which is available in 11-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch models. While the entry-level 11-inch model makes do with a Pentium-class processor and a 1366x768 display, the 14-inch and 15-inch models up the ante with optional FHD displays and up to a fifth generation...

Google created Android as an open platform with the intent that software developers and hardware manufacturers would create new, useful, and innovative things for the platform. Since Android was introduced, we’ve seen a number of interesting devices from cameras to HDMI dongles that utilize the OS. But tablets and smartphones remain the key focus for most manufacturers. Most Android tablets are cookie-cutter slates. The major differences from one model to the next are generally a combination of software features and variations in key hardware specifications such as the processor, screen resolution, or storage capacity. Over the years, we’ve also seen some spins... Read more...
Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro 2-in-1 ultrabook has made a bit of a splash as of late, from appearing in a number of holiday shopping-infused TV spots, to flash prank comparisons tricking unwitting mall shoppers into thinking they got framed for busting up a MacBook Air laptop. It's with good reason that Lenovo is making an effort to amplify interest in the product. The Yoga 3 Pro one of the first hybrid ultrabooks to hit the market powered by Intel's new low power Core M Broadwell processor. In a nutshell, you can think of Broadwell as a full-featured Intel Core series notebook processor that performs at near-tablet power consumption envelopes (4.5 Watt TDP).  It makes for a very interesting notebook...

When Intel gave us an early deep-dive look at their new 14nm Broadwell Core M series processor back in August, we were hopeful that great things would be coming to ultra-light notebooks and premium 2-in-1 tablet devices. Intel's low power 14nm Tri-Gate architecture coupled with an enhanced integrated graphics core, offered the promise of "fanless" devices as thin as tablets that could offer true notebook-class performance. Then, once we got a sneak peek at some performance numbers at IDF 2014, we came away even more impressed with Broadwell, at least in its early stages. However, without quality time spent in hands-on testing, we were left with only a view colored admittedly so often by... Read more...
With a little help from Ashton Kutcher today, Lenovo rolled out an array of new Yoga tablets and ultrabooks. Several cool features are making an appearance, including Intel’s Broadwell Core M-70 chip in the high-end models, as well as an integrated PICO projector and, in a first for the Yoga Tablet series, Windows. The Yoga devices are known for being light and flexible - and the new models are sporting improvements in both areas. Lenovo is making the systems available for sale now and is kicking off the launch with rebates. The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. The flagship of the Yoga series is the new Yoga 3 Pro. We had good things to say about its predecessor last year, and although we’ll hold... Read more...
Mobile World Congress (MWC) is this week, and Lenovo is starting things off by announcing the successor to its original Yoga tablet, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+. The device sports a 1920x1080 display, 1.6GHz Snapdragon processor, and runs Android 4.3 (with an OTA 4.4 update coming). Other specifications include 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of onboard storage, and 8MP rear- and 1.6MP front-facing cameras. There’s also 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, a G-sensor, and Dolby Advanced Audio. Of course, the primary feature is the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+’s multimode capabilities, easily shifting between Hold, Tilt, and Stand modes to facilitate more convenient use for whatever you happen to be doing at the time. Lenovo... Read more...
It’s a ThinkPad. No, it’s a Yoga! No, it’s...a ThinkPad Yoga. Lenovo has melded two of its popular laptop design approaches together to create a sort of hybrid ultrabook, bringing together elements of its workhorse ThinkPad lineup and multi-mode capable Yoga notebooks. It has the work-friendly keyboard design of the new generation of Lenovo ThinkPads, yet it also has that innovative hinge flexibility and multimode configurations of the Yoga series. Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga: A Yoga Dressed For Business The result is a laptop that’s either a more utilitarian, thicker version of the Yoga or a much cooler version of the ThinkPad. It sort of depends on if you’re a glass-is-half-full... Read more...
