Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: a good (if slightly heavy) Ultrabook for business users

The ThinkPad Yoga's self-flattening keyboard is a neat idea, butit would make more senseon a smaller machine. All told, you can easily find Ultrabooks that offer sharper screens, longer battery life and comparable performance -- sometimes for about the same price. If pen input is important, though, the ThinkPad Yoga is by far your best option, and it happens to be a solid performer in its own right.

Pros
  • Well-built, versatile design
  • Low-glare screen offers good viewing angles
  • Comfortable keyboard and trackpad
  • One of the few Ultrabooks to support pen input
  • Fast boot-up time, good all-around performance
Cons
  • Relatively bulky
  • Self-flattening keyboard seems less useful on a machine that's this cumbersome to use in tablet mode
  • Base model has a fairly low-res screen
  • Battery life is on the short side
