Lenovo has today announced a new convertible laptop called the Yoga 3 Pro, which has been designed to be 17 per cent thinner than its predecessor, the Yoga 2 Pro.

The laptop also features a QHD+ display with a 3200 x 1080 pixel resolution, as well as what Lenovo describes as a watchband hinge design, which has been made from 800 pieces of both steel and aluminium, providing six focus points, rather than just two.

With this design users can switch the laptop between a laptop mode, stand mode, tent mode, tablet mode and more.

The display also features a Gorilla Glass display, and Lenovo’s Harmony software will work with the machine to adapt to the users’ preferences when in different modes.

For example when reading the Harmony software will automatically change the brightness and colour temperature to the environment lighting, it can also enable motion control and touch control depending on the mode.

In terms of other specs the Yoga 3 Pro features an Intel Core M processor, a SSD sized up to 512GB, Intel integrated graphics, up to a 9 hour battery life, support for 802.11 a/c WiFi and JBL speakers.

The Yoga 3 Pro will be available in Clementine Orange, Platinum Silver, or Champagne Gold, each with that metallic watchband hinge.

The Yoga 3 Pro will be available in October for around €1,599.
