The Lenovo Yoga 3 14 is a reliable mainstream laptop with 360 degrees of flexibility

Laptops
[MUSIC] No ultrathin, ultralight body, no radical design shift, no ultrahigh resolution screen. This is just another good version of the convertible Notebook that Lenovo kicked off in 2012. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET, and while the Yoga 3 Pro showed Lenovo flexing its design muscles, the Yoga 3 14 is the more mainstream model. But, still features the now-familiar Yoga flip-around design. This model has a 14 inch 1080p resolution touchscreen that folds completely back so, you can use it as a tablet. Albeit, a fairly large and heavy one at three and a half pounds. The full HD resolution works well for this screen size and the IPS panel gives you good off-angle viewing. But the glare off the display is tough to ignore, especially since the screen doesn't get all too bright. The keyboard is good, though I found it a bit spongy, and the smaller right side shift and enter keys might take some adjusting. Now inside, instead of the Core M processor found in the Pro and the Yoga 311, you'll find either a fifth gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. integrated or discrete invidea graphics. Up to 8 gigs of memory and up to a 250 gig solid state drive. Prices start around $800.00 and go up to $1050.00. We tested a core i5 with integrated graphics that is just over $900.00 And it performed very well with every day use. Light photo and video editing, streaming video and music, and casual mobile games. Battery life was respectable, too, at about eight hours on our drain test. If you need more than that, check out the HP Specter X350 or non-touchscreen versions Of the Dell XPS 13. Which, with similar configurations, both got 12 hours. You can read the full review on cnet.com. But this is certainly worth your consideration if you're just looking for a reliable every day laptop with some added flexibility. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's a quick look at Lenovo's Yoga 3 14. [MUSIC]
