Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro launched, sports convertible design inspired by watch hinge

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a new entry in the company’s premium range of convertible devices. With its price starting at €1599, it is slated to be made available this month with a number of interesting offerings including its new watchband hinge design which makes it a lot thinner and lighter than its predecessor.

This product houses a 13-inch monitor which is connected to the body by a watchband hinge that has been built from more than 800 pieces of steel and aluminum. This has apparently helped the company keep the device’s weight down to 1.19kgs and its thickness down to 12.8mm.

The Yoga 3 Pro runs the Windows 8.1 Pro OS, and bears a new Harmony software suite built by Lenovo for better optimization of settings based on the apps that are being used. Its 13-inch multitouch display is a QHD+ panel which presents its visuals in 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution.

Users will even be able to grab up to 8GB worth of DDR3L memory, whereas the GPU will remain locked at an Intel HD Graphics 5300 unit.

The newly launched Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro will be hitting store shelves and the company’s website sometime this month. While its price in Europe will be €1599, it will be available in the US at $1350.
