Engadget Review

Lenovo's third-generation Yoga laptop is as versatile as ever, except it's noticeably thinner and lighter -- so much so that it's now one of the slimmest Ultrabooks on the market. The battery life has improved too, but it still lags behind the competition, no doubt because that slim design doesn't leave room for a bigger cell.
