    Decent

    Posted .

    Gets the job done. I bought for the light weight and the watch band hinge and the overall "sexy" finish. After 2 weeks of purchase i notice that a screw from the base was missing. I thought "mmm" how could i have not noticed that; but later realized all the screw were not staying in place and now i have to be constantly tightening them. Just simple movement from surface to surface make the screws loose. So while looking for the screw which i thought had to be in room given that i havent travelled with it yet , i found a small part that belong to the watch band hinge. Tried to fit it back but they all keep falling off. Ive attached the photo. It does bother me that this keeps happening. But i do like the laptop except for these small probs.

    My third Yoga 3 Pro

    |
    Posted .

    I originally bought this laptop as a supplement to my other, much larger and heavier, computer. Unfortunately, I ran into trouble with two of these laptops and I am currently on my 3rd on right now. So if I returned two of these laptops, then why did I give this product a 4/5 stars? Let me explain: The first laptop I bought was the earlier version with the same physical specifications, except that it came with Windows 8.1. I was not a fan of 8.1, but I liked that I could upgrade from 8.1 to 10 for free. After the upgrade, there were a few problems that I ran into, like the screen going black after a few seconds on Netflix. I also ran into some "graphical artifacts" which were essentially touchscreen bubbles remaining on the screen after lifting the lid. So naturally, I thought it was a hardware problem and that I had a faulty product. So I exchanged it for an identical laptop with Windows 8.1. This second laptop had the exact same problems after doing the upgrade to Windows 10. So by this point I know this was never a hardware problem, and more of a software capability issue with the new Windows 10 operation system. I called Microsoft, Lenovo, and even Netflix to inquire about this problem, and they all said that Windows 10 might have a few bugs and will be cleared up within the next year. But since I was going back to college in a few weeks, I really wanted a working copy of the Yoga 3 Pro right NOW (call me picky). So I took the computer back to BestBuy, and while waiting to be helped with GeekSquad, I tried out the "floor models" of the Yoga 3 Pro. They worked flawlessly with Window 10. This made me wonder why they worked and my other two did not. As it turns out, these particular models came from the factory preloaded with Windows 10. Now by this point, you're probably wondering why I need this Windows 10 anyway. To put it simply, I liked the interface of the new operation system, and already loathed the 8.1 format. So finally after all this trouble I exchange my 2nd Yoga 3 Pro for a preloaded model (which actually has the same hardware specifications). With the 3rd time being the charm, the computer worked beautifully. Now about the computer: It is extremely thin and light, weighing in at about 2.6 lbs. and measuring in at about 0.5 in thick. You'll first notice the very unique "watch band" hinge design and it flexes easily with no mechanical problems that I can see. The keys are relatively close together and have strange placement, but I like that the keyboard is backlit. The trackpad is rather small, and can be a little cumbersome at times. After turning on the computer, you'll notice that the computer doesn't have a BIOS shortcut during startup. This is because of Lenovo's "NOVO" button, which brings you directly to the BIOS menu from being turned off. Startup is extremely quick with the Yoga 3 Pro due to the lightning fast solid state drive. The screen is incredibly beautiful with a native resolution of 3200x1800 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. I noticed the screen brightness wasn't very great, but I've heard is comparable to other small Ultrabooks. The touchscreen is extremely responsive and has great palm rejection while using a stylus. The little "windows button" on the bottom of the screen is not very responsive and takes a few presses to activate. The video card holds up great with full screen video playback, but is not a powerhouse when it comes to video editing software or Photoshop. The 8GB of RAM helps with streaming and other everyday computing tasks. Mind you, this is not a gaming computer by any means, and will be limited by the hardware capabilities if one chooses to play graphic intensive games. The battery life is probably my biggest gripe, where I get 4 hours of life with normal use at 75% brightness. I'm sure you can squeeze out 5 hours if you keep the use minimal. The charging block is very compact and easy to store, but the charging cable is pretty short. In tablet mode, the software turns off the keys and touchpad so that you cannot accidentally activate them. I find that stand mode is incredibly useful when watching videos or studying lecture notes. The laptop comes with three USB ports, two of which are USB3.0 and the remaining port is USB2.0, which also acts as the charging port. There is micro HDMI output if you wish to connect to a larger screen or a TV, and there is an SD card slot reader. Although there are more capable computers with more storage and performance for the money, the Yoga 3 Pro provides a light, quick and flexible alternative to other bulkier options. I would not buy this laptop if it is your first or only computer. But to supplement a larger computer for a more mobile experience, is the whole point of this computer. That being said, although I have had some initial bad experience with my other versions of this computer, I would still recommend this product, and BestBuy's services to anyone in the market for this type of laptop.

    I loved this laptop. The only complaint was the volume/Bluetooth. I think it was the positioning of the speakers, couldn't ever get it loud enough and had difficulty connecting to Bluetooth. Otherwise, this was the best laptop I ever had. The hinge specifically made it durable for so many flips. Lenovo should bring back this hinge.

    Great PC for a moderate user...

    |
    Posted .

    So far the only problems I've had is the touch pad being a bit finicky, MS Edge being slow to load pages and getting used to the shorter 'Shift' key on the right. With all the real estate available, Lenovo could have spread out the keyboard. Hopefully continued BIOS or driver updates will fix the touch pad issue. Otherwise, the screen is bright, colors are brilliant, the speakers are decent, the backlit keyboard works and the storage space of 256 is good enough for me. With the low prices of external hard drive storage, you can pick up a 1TB disk for $50 easy. Would I use this for graphic intensive programs? NO. I don't believe the M CPU is enough. Would this laptop rock 5 stars if it had an i3 CPU? Sure. However, moderate users and students who use MS Office and Firefox will be just fine. Yeah..use Firefox and not Edge! You'll see the speed difference when loading web pages.

    Lightweight, great keyboard

    |
    Posted .

    Likes: - Good keyboard (Keyboard was very important to me because I needed a lap top for my grad school work. I dislike the keyboard on the Yoga 2, but Yoga 3 Pro is much better.) - Very light - Fast startup - Love the 4 in 1. I use the tablet view for reading articles, tent view for recipes while cooking, and laptop configuration for everything else. Dislikes - Not a fan of the wide screen - Got a blue screen within the first week, but have not had any further issues since (have had it almost 2 months now) - $$$ - Any other dislikes are related to Windows 10, not this machine.

    Fast and cool running

    Posted .

    I had to return the 1st one due to hiccups during setup. The second one went blank during setup as well, but on restart I was able to complete setup. It seems that the Lenovo and the Windows 10 software had a conflict. I ended up with 2 users (1 Lenovo, 1 MS) I was able to complete the Lenovo. Once up and running I am really pleased. Its fast, runs cool and the battery life is good.

    Love the size and weight!. Great screen clarity. Some issues with the mouse programming, but the Geek Squad was able to fix that for me very quickly. I'm still getting used to Windows 10, but that will work out.

    Sleek, beautiful and versatile

    |
    Posted .

    Best buy price matched with the Lenovo site during 2015 holiday sale. I was using HP laptop before. Compared to that the build quality is significantly better. This laptop is very sleek and light. The screen quality and resolution are fantastic, as good as premium smart phones. Sometimes this high resolution can be problem when applications do not know how deal with it. So sometimes I run this on reduced resolution 1080P. I use this laptop to connect to work vpn and is drive an additional monitor. Touch screen comes in handy when scrolling around. You know how clumsy it is to use the mouse pad on laptops. Also switching between laptop and tablet mode is seamless. On the downside its slightly under powered. But for most of my use it works just fine. The battery does not last all day. I get around 4 hours with one charge. I am not too upset as I expected this as this laptop is super thin.

    Pretty solid laptop

    Very good laptop for the price. The solid state drive definitely helps speed things up, however the Core M processor lags quite a bit. It's super light and easy to carry out. It's also one of the thinnest Ultrabooks you can buy which makes using it in tablet mode almost enjoyable.

    Light, fast and durable

    We bought one, then another one a week later. Easy to setup and came with Windows 10 pre installed. Very light but durable. Mine fell out of back pack at the Chicago airport an hit the hard floor. A little damage on the side, besides that everything still works great. Almost bought the Surface Pro for $600 more, but I am glad I got the Yoga.

    Wireless drops out but overall great laptop.

    |
    Posted .

    I love the 2 in1 idea and it works very well. Best of both worlds. The only issue I have is the wireless network drops out and SSID's are not shown at all. You must run through the troubleshooting for network repair. After researching it appears this is a Windows 10 problem. Hopefully there will be a patch soon. Other than that I like this laptop a lot.

    Great for a college student

    |
    Posted .

    I am a basic laptop user, I am not an artist, an engineer/architect (student or professional). Although I am a student, my major is business management, and this laptop is amazing for those on the go. It is extremely light and you do not feel it weighing you down when in a backpack. The different modes comes in handy when sitting in a chair with one of those pull-over tables. It maximizes space. Normally my usage includes light internet browsing, maybe no more than 3 tabs as I personally don't like a clutter of Windows. But I know this laptop can handle a lot more. I also use Microsoft office, and I do utilize cortana, which is like Siri, for Windows 10 devices. I know I do not get my money's worth with the things I use my laptop for, but I made the purchase based off of its flexibility (literally), it's style, weight, and the fact that Lenovo is an amazing brand. The touch screen is very responsive, and when using Microsoft onenote I used a disk tip stylus (memo is the brand) and it feels very nice. I also use a hurion tablet glove for palm rejection. The only negative thing is that this laptop does not have an active digitizer so you can't use an s pen for it.

    Great laptop/tablet

    |
    Posted .

    First, a disclaimer: This is my second yoga. The first one I had, the keyboard was flaky on. BestBuy exchanged it without question. This one is awesome. This one has a solid feel to it (both the keyboard and the touchpad feel solid). It's so small, thin and light, but yet has a big enough screen that you can read it. I haven't taken it on a plane yet, but I would imagine it would fit on the tray table nicely. The battery life is a solid 4 hours (which I consider good for what is really a laptop). The apps may be a bit light on Win 10, but the fact that you have a full web browser makes up for a lot of the missing apps. You can pinch the screen to make it bigger/more readable, which is nice.

    Wonderful machine

    Posted .

    The last two laptops I have bought for business travel (two really big names - use your imagination to figure out which ones) fell short in so many ways that I sold them in less than three months of use. While their specs seemed to be what I wanted, the performance was glitchy and unreliable. Not so with the Lenovo Pro 3. Note that this review is for the Lenovo Pro 3 with the M5Y71 processor, not the older and original M5Y70 processor machines which were slower. About 3 months after releasing the Pro 3, Lenovo upgraded the processor it was using Obviously the style is nothing short of gorgeous. The screen is clear and sharp. The lighted keyboard is an absolute godsend on evening flights or just sitting in front of the TV catching up on paper work at the end of the day. I would never go without a lighted keyboard again. WIFI connectivity is solid. Windows 10 works well on the Pro 3. The ports are everything I need. It is light weight and I absolutely love the 2-in-1 design versatility. Even though this is a laptop, I have not yet had a problem with TSA or flight attendants -- they see the machine as a tablet. Two minor gripes (are you reading this Lenovo???): the USB cable which runs from the very small and wonderful power pack to the computer is too short and it is not a standard USB cable. But I did find a Chinese supplier on Amazon that claims to make a 2 meter cable that works with the Pro 3. Also, the battery life, as other reviewers note, falls short of the competition. There is enough battery to be able to do normal business work on a coast-to-coast flight, but not if you are watching a downloaded movie which requires a brighter display. Despite my gripes, I would strongly recommend the Pro 3 for road warriors. It's light, functional, reliable, and masquerades as a tablet when going through TSA and on a plane.

    Perfect Web Surfing Machine

    I do lots of research online and typically have a minimum of 7 tabs open. I have as many as 20 tabs open and don't see a reduction in speed. Streaming movies to my TV and surfing the net simultaneously is a breeze.

    Perfect... as long as you don't need support.

    |
    Posted .

    This is my second Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, so that should tell you just how much I adore these units. My only issue is that Lenovo support is famously awful. After frequent traveling, a single screw at the bottom of my case fell out and Lenovo accused me of abusing the laptop suggesting that my warranty wouldn't cover a screw replacement. You might want to consider acquiring Best Buy's warranty instead of relying on Lenovo.

    Excellent Computer

    This is my first Lenovo, and I absolutely love it!! The ease of use, touch screen and portability, coupled with a battery life that is exceptional!! Was a lil nervous at first as my others are macpro and Mac air, but need Microsoft for work and wanted something I could use in the kitchen. I absolutely love this yoga, and would encourage anyone on the fence to take the plunge, you won't regret it!!

    This is a great product. It is very versatile, and runs efficiently and quickly. Before purchasing I had some concerns about the battery life based on reviews I had read, but I found that on "power saver" mode the battery typically lasts about two days. Occasionally, when using the mouse pad, it will zoom in on the screen for no reason, and on occasion the touch screen will have a mind of its own. This is very rare, though, and lasts no longer than a few seconds. Overall, this is wonderful. I love that I can use it as a laptop or tablet--very convenient! Lenovo products are great, and I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    terrific ultrabook!

    Terrific ultrabook that also functions as a tablet. Speedy, and sleek looking, my only caveat is that the screen is a little dim when on battery only and it can get a little warm sitting in your lap in tablet mode. I love the yoga format and windows 10 is a good upgrade from 8.

    Best PC every owned, this is the real deal. You will love the size and how compact this machine is and its very light weight even in tablet mode. Very quiet, battery life ok for me, I really don't stay far for the outlet. Great for office or school work. Does have some issues with staying connected to the wifi, and fingerprints show a lot. All in all, I'll recommend.
