Lenovo is one of my favorite companies, with millions of customers all over the world. After we have previously spoken about potential specs of the upcoming new Lenovo Miix tablet, it’s time to have a look at the Lenovo Yoga Pro 3.

Lenovo says the device will have up to 9 hours of battery life, thanks to the new Broadwell chips and will be available with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of flash storage. The 3200 x 1800 pixels QHD+ screen is much better than the hyped Retina display (2560 x 1600 pixels) on the MacBook Pro.

Also, the new Yoga 3 Pro is one of the very first laptops to charge over USB, which makes it really portable. On the inside we also find the JBL-tuned speakers with WavesAudio processing at the bottom of the laptop along with two USB 3.0 sockets, a micro HDMI port, a headset jack, and an SD card slot. The laptop also comes with 5GHz 802.11ac support out of the box and the latest Bluetooth 4.01.

The Windows 8.1 Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro featurs “Harmony”, an option that can automatically adjust settings to optimize whatever app you’re using. It will change the brightness and color temperature according to the environment lighting. However, the new Yoga 3 Pro is available at a starting price of $1349 and it comes in three colors: silver, orange, and gold.

Despite the high price for a 13-incher laptop, I think this is a special device and is much better than the MacBook Pro. So, if you have the money for it, then it’s a no-brainer. And considering that it will make the jump to Windows 10, then you have another reason to make use of it.
