Lenovo announces YOGA 3 Pro, a slim convertible PC
Popular manufacturer Lenovo announced the new YOGA 3 Pro today, the company calls the new device “an ultra slim convertible PC.” Measured at 13″ the YOGA 3 Pro hopes to be the perfect go-to device for new users looking for high-performance in a stylish convertible.
The Yoga 3 Pro is 17% thinner than the previous model, now just 12.8 mm thin when opened. The PC is also lighter, just 1.19kg or 14% less than before. The company stated that Lenovo engineers, “redesigned the original YOGA hinge so that it now provides the same degree of flexibility and flatness seen in metallic watch bands. Instead of two focus points, there are now six.”
“The new Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro design is an outstanding example of the innovation we are seeing in 2-in-1 systems,” said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group at Intel. “With its incredibly thin design and four modes, combined with the processing performance in our new Intel Core M processor, users now have amazing flexibility on a single 2-in-1 system to work and play the way they want to, whether it’s enjoying content like movies and music or working on their next presentation.”
The YOGA 3 Pro is available in three colors: Clementine Orange, Platinum Silver or Champagne Gold.
When using presentation software, Harmony can enable motion control or touch depending on the mode, or when watching video it can optimize the audio settings. Harmony can recognize and optimize the experience with more than 50 of the most popular applications. Harmony also recommends which apps other YOGA owners find useful and provides a handy shortcut to the apps used most frequently in each mode.
“The new YOGA 3 Pro convertible PC is the result of continual refinement and listening to customer feedback,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president, design and marketing, PC Group, Lenovo. “While users told us they loved what YOGA allows them to do with the four modes, they wanted it even thinner and lighter.
The YOGA 3 Pro offers users an excellent experience in any mode from the moment they open the lid. With a QHD+ 3200×1800 display, this bright and clear screen looks amazing whatever the task – editing images in Laptop mode, video chatting in Stand mode, watching movies in Tent mode or online shopping in Tablet mode. Built with durable Gorilla Glass, this screen is designed to hold up to wherever users go.
While videos look stunning, the YOGA 3 Pro makes them sound just as spectacular with premium JBL speakers with Waves Audio, which automatically adjusts the audio in each of the four modes so that when the speakers are not facing the user, the audio still sounds crisp and clear.
Equipped with an Intel Core M processor, solid state drive storage up to 512 GB SSD and Intel integrated graphics, users can multitask at will, store large digital libraries and experience smooth video playback without lag. The YOGA 3 Pro keeps users up and running longer with up to nine hours of battery life and connected via high-speed 802.11 a/c WiFi.
