Ahh, how the PC world turns so quickly. A year ago, the industry would have pondered whether the Yoga 3 Pro was a MacBook Air killer. Today, we have to wonder whether Lenovo’s new super-bendable computer is actually a Surface Pro 3 killer.
You might question the comparison, but I think it’s fair. Both the Yoga 3 Pro and Surface Pro 3 are ultra-portable, fairly powerful for their size, and priced rather similarly when spec’d similarly.
I went into my Yoga 3 Pro testing with high expectations. After all, in our review of the Yoga 2 Pro roughly a year ago, we described that machine as damn near close to the “perfect laptop/tablet combo.” And now with this update, Lenovo sticks with what worked well last time, and even makes the Yoga 3 Pro thinner and lighter than its predecessor.
