We already knew about the ThinkPad Helix, but it turns out Lenovo is readying another convertible with Intel's new Core M processor under the hood. Say hello to the Yoga 3 Pro, which will be available from Lenovo and at Best Buy stores later this month:
The system is outfitted with the Yoga series' trademark 360-degree hinge design, but updated with a novel "watchband" style. Strapped to that hinge is a 13.3" touch-screen display with a 3200x1800 resolution—and the rest of the specs are no less impressive. The Yoga 3 Pro features:
At 0.5" and 2.62 lbs, this thing is also impressively thin and light for a 13" convertible. Keep in mind, of course, that the keyboard can't be detached, so you'll have to put up with the whole system's weight in tablet mode.
Lenovo says it will pre-load the Yoga 3 Pro with Harmony, a program that detects over 50 of the "most popular applications" and makes suitable adjustments when they're run. When displaying an e-book, for instance, Lenovo says Harmony will "automatically change the brightness and color temperature according to the environment lighting." The software can also "enable motion control or touch depending on the mode, or when watching video it can optimize the audio settings."
Strangely, the company's press release quotes pricing in Euros, despite mentioning Best Buy in the previous sentence. It looks like you can expect to pay €1,599 for the Yoga 3 Pro, which works out to just over $2,000.
