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.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro has a breakthrough design, but requires careful consideration of the trade-offs required, particularly battery life.

PC Mag
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a premium convertible-hybrid laptop that revamps the familiar Yoga line with a new hinge design, an efficient Intel Core M processor, and a super-slim new chassis.

While it’s good-looking, light, and easy on the eye, it underachieves in almost every other area.

The Yoga 3 Pro's beautiful display doesn't make up for its mediocre battery life and CPU.

TechRadar
While it blows its predecessor out of the water in the looks department, the Yoga 3 Pro has too many flaws to justify the slightly too high price point. A triumph for design, but little else.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a sleek, versatile 2-in-1 with a beautiful display and decent keyboard. But it doesn’t have the performance it should for a $1,299 computer.

If you have to have the latest in mobile technology and are willing to break the bank, Lenovo's thin, light and flexible Yoga 3 Pro has the best of everything.
