Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 (2015 Edition) Business 2-in-1 Convertible


Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 was released in 2014. This is an overview of the 2015 version which brings the latest 5th Generation Intel Core Broadwell processor options instead of the 4th Gen Haswell. Generally, the ThinkPad Yoga 14 is a business convertible 2-in-1 laptop and tablet with a 14-inch Full HD IPS touch display and 360-degree rotating hinge. Besides the Broadwell CPUs, the convertible features up to 8GB of system memory and optional Nvidia GeForce 940M graphics. Storage is provided via an up to 256GB solid state drive and up to 1-Terabyte hard drive.

The chassis measures 0.8″ thin in profile. The device weighs in at 4.2 pounds, so this notebook is suitable for carrying around and taking on trips. The Chiclet-style backlit keyboard features “lift-and-lock” technology. It means the keyboard frame automatically rises and the keys lock when the device is in modes that don’t need the keyboard, such as the tablet and multimedia stand modes.

Lenovo says the battery life is up to 8 hours on this machine.

Optionally, the ThinkPad Yoga 14 comes with ActivePen for taking notes, drawing, and similar stuff.

    Overall an excellent laptop, no complaints, fast, reliable, great keyboard, extremely sturdy chassis (my is silver version). The only complaint I have is that the screen somehow attracts insane amount of dust. I have used tens of laptops in the past, but this is the worst in that regard and dust is very visible on the screen. Have to clean it everyday.


  2. Naui – March 11, 2015:

    You state the 2015 version is expected in May 2015 and has the 5th generation processor.
    But such a Thinkpad Yoga 14 has already been released. See for example
    http://comet.ee/en/notebooks-ultrabooks/30899-lenovo-thinkpad-yoga-14-s320dm003t-touch-14quot-fhd-multitouch-intel-core-i5-5200u-22ghz-3mb-8gb-ddr3-1600-256gb-ssd-intel-hd-gr-889233471814.html

    Is this then already the 2015 version?

    Also, the specs mention “Multi-Touch Trackpad with Integrated Buttons”. But as I understand and the picture on this page also shows is that in contrast to the 2014 version the laptop’s 2015 version has seperate buttons rather than integrated ones…

      According to Lenovo, the 2015 ThinkPad Yoga 14 should arrive in May: http://news.lenovo.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=1876

      The TP Yoga 14 on comet.ee has S3 in the model name, which is the same mark seen on the 2014 TP Yoga 14. On the other hand, the image on Comet and 5th Gen Core CPU indicate it’s a 2015 model, so it’s best to contact Comet and ask about it.

      “Multi-Touch Trackpad with Integrated Buttons” is an entry in our database meaning that a trackpad itself has integrated instead of physical buttons. The buttons you see on images of the trackpad of the TP Yoga 14 2015 are actually buttons intended for use with the red TrackPoint navigation stick located on the keyboard. Buttons for the trackpad itself are built / integrated in the surface.
