Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro first look: Fabulous design but bit pricey at Rs 114990

Chinese electronics giant Lenovo on Tuesday launched its much anticipated Yoga 3 Pro laptop in India for Rs 1,14,990 onwards.

The somewhat pricey laptop was unveiled by Lenovo at CES last month. There is no denying the fact that this laptop has got a sleek and stylish design but its price seems to be on the higher side.

At the CES, Lenovo also announced a partnership with Croma and stated that the product would be exclusively available at select Croma stores across India.

Lenovo claims that the Yoga 3 Pro is the world's thinnest convertible laptop at just 12.8mm (0.5) thick and it weighs just 1.19 kg. This laptop also offers users four different modes of use - Laptop, Stand, Tent or Tablet. The device also allows the screen to flip around 360 degrees, a feature which we have seen in its predecessor the Yoga 2 Pro.

The watchband-inspired hinge of this device is unique and adds a certain touch of panache look to the laptop. Lenovo says the hinges are crafted from 813 individual pieces of aluminum and steel. The Chinese firm has also added in premium JBL speakers to this device and has also packed it with Waves Audio certification.

The keyboard deck of this laptop is quite comfortable and its track pad is extremely smooth and light.

The Yoga 3 Pro comes with a high-resolution QHD+ (3200 x 1800) 10-point multitouch display. Though this is not exactly 4K but it is definitely close to it. The 13.3 inch display size gives us clear and crisp images. The screen has got Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro runs on an Intel Core M-70 processor with 8GB RAM. In terms of OS, it will come with Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit operating system options. In terms of connectivity, the laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, one DC-in with USB 2.0 function, 4-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, SDXC, SDHC), micro-HDMI out and an audio combo jack. It also has 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
