In addition to new and Ashton Kutcher approved Yoga Tablet 2 devices, Lenovo has also unveiled the successor to its quite popular Yoga 2 Pro notebook, the new Yoga 3 Pro notebook. Lenovo did not change much of the winning combination but has only slightly upgraded the Yoga 2 Pro notebook by making the new one thinner, lighter and giving it a bit more power with Intel's Core M Broadwell CPU.
According to Lenovo, the new Yoga 3 Pro is 12.8mm thick which makes it 17 percent thinner than the old model. It weighs 1.19kg, which makes it 15 percent lighter than the Yoga 2 Pro. It is still designed around a 13.3-inch 3200x1800 QHD+ display protected by Gorilla Glass. Lenovo also used the new "watchband" hinge, which is apparently made from over 800 individual pieces of steel and aluminum and allows the Yoga 3 Pro notebook to be used in various modes, as normal notebook, tablet mode and more.
The rest of the specifications and features of the Yoga 3 Pro notebook include Intel's new Broadwell Core M-70 CPU paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage, although most SKUs on the market will be coming with 256GB of flash storage space. It also comes with 802.11ac WiFi and battery that should keep it running for around nine hours, according to Lenovo.
The new Yoga 3 Pro notebook will be available in three color choices, silver, orange and gold and should already be available a price starting at €1,599/US $1,349.,
