Hands-on first impressions of the Lenovo Yoga 3 11-inch ultraportable laptop

Announced during CES this year, the Lenovo Yoga 3 11-inch is a convertible laptop that features four different ways to work. You can work in laptop mode, or in stand, tent, or tablet mode. This gorgeous ultraportable device landed on our doorsteps, so let’s take a quick look at it!

The Yoga 3 features a touchscreen display that can flip around 360 degrees, allowing you to utilize the device in various modes. The display itself is vivid, featuring an IPS touchscreen Full-HD resolution. Powered by an Intel Core M processor (5Y10c at 0.80GHz 1600MHz 4MB), this ultraportable device is just 2.6 pounds and 0.6 inches thin. In fact, as I was unboxing the device, I actually thought to myself “there doesn’t seem to be anything inside.” 2.6 pounds is really lightweight for a laptop!

The device also features JBL speakers and Maxx Technology by Waves Audio. The Yoga 3 11-inch is also available in either white or black (we’ll be reviewing the white color option, obviously). The device can go up to 256GB SSD for storage, and features up to 8GB of DDR3L 1600MHz RAM.

The Yoga 3 11-inch promises 6.5 hours of battery life and features Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi connectivity, as well as 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 2.0 with DC-in function, 4-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, SDXC, SDHC), Micro-HDMI, and an Audio Combo Jack.

So far, I am quite impressed at the esthetics of this device. It really is gorgeous. The touch screen seems responsive, the keyboard is nice to use, and the system seems snappy. We’re going to add some stress to this device and see how it holds up, so stay tuned for our in-depth review. In the mean time, enjoy some photos of this gorgeous 11-inch ultraportable device.
