Lenovo Yoga: A Revolutionary Ultrabook Model
When launched, Lenovo Yoga drew attention of the huge crowd. The concept of tablet and laptop combined in a single system has been designed in a super cool manner. Undoubtedly, the name given to this model by Lenovo goes well with this flexible system.
It is good as a laptop and the screen swivel around completely, to give a full tablet experience to its users. We don’t mean that it is the best device in the market, but we would say that it is the coolest device that gives the experience of both a tablet and a laptop.
Let us not wait more and start with the specs of this model, which it has wrapped in!
Lenovo Yoga is of 0.69 inches thick and weighs 3.4 pounds. Yes, you’re right! It is neither the slimmest nor the lightest system. But, if you’re expecting a laptop and tablet in the same system, then it will definitely, demand for little compromise.
Exterior of the machine is of silver-gray color and has a soft finish. The interior of the system has the same soft touch. The screen of Yoga has a fancy HDTV look, which leaves the impression of more of a tablet. You can find a Windows button at the bottom of the screen, to switch between desktop mode and Metro interface.
Keyboard is very comfortable to work with, and the trackpad is smooth & responsive. It has a line to indicate the right and left mouse clicks.
Yoga houses 4 GB of RAM and powered by 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor. It has 128GB solid state drive. The size of the multi-touch touchscreen is 13-inch and has a resolution of 1,366×768 pixels. It runs on Windows 8. Yoga sports a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a HDMI port, SD card reader, microphone or headphone jack, buttons to control the volume and a button to lock the screen (which works only in tablet mode).
We would consider Yoga’s performance to be little better than average and rate it to be 5 out of 10.
It has beaten almost all computers or laptops in booting time. It took only 7.9 seconds to start up, which was the least among all the systems put onto test.
Despite of not having a discrete graphics card, Yoga performed quite well in its graphics test. It could generate a frame rate of 30.1 frames per second, which is considered to be playable.
Yoga could manage well in the battery life test of Ultrabooks. It could stand for five hours & 37 minutes on ‘Balanced & Power Save Mode’. Of course, it is not the best battery life that can be delivered by an Ultrabook, but it is not bad too.
Lenovo Yoga is not extremely exciting, but the fact still remains the same that it performs really well being both a laptop and a tablet.
