With Windows, you get everything in Windows, plus enhanced security features like trusted boot, improved biometric support, backup to SkyDrive, and more.
 
Four Awesome Modes. One Incredible Device
 
Easily change between four modes, Laptop, Stand, Tablet and Tent, while your system automatically switches system settings and locks the keyboard in place.
 
The secret: ThinkPad Yoga 12's unique design, improved hinge, and touchscreen display allow the screen to flip around 360 degrees and even lay it flat. That means you can select the mode you use based on what you choose to do.

And with up to 8 hours of battery life (from new, actual performance will be less), you can go all day without recharging.
 
Industry-Leading Multimode Keyboard
 
Pioneering Ultrabooks need pioneering keyboards. And the ThinkPad
Yoga 12's innovative lift ‘n’ lock keyboard fits the bill.
 
When your Yoga switches between modes, the keyboard frame automatically rises and the keys lock, eliminating accidental keystrokes and providing a more comfortable grip.

Our Specialist view of the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12 laptop

The Spec:

It’s seriously packed with some good spec: a 12.5” touchscreen Full HD with an impressive party trick, a 5th generation Intel Core i5 dual core processor, 4GB RAM and a 128GB Solid State Drive. As well as this the Yoga 12 packs in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a backlit keyboard and webcam and a stylus to make the most of the touchscreen display. Windows 10 Professional is preinstalled.

The Good Bits:

The highlight of this laptop is its touchscreen, or more specifically, the clever lid hinge that means it can be used in 4 different modes. Lenovo class these as Laptop, Stand, Tablet and Tent. 1 or 2 of those modes we found wouldn’t be used all that much but the tablet mode was the real winner here. When folding the lid back on itself the keyboard frame rises and almost completely removes change of the keyboard being accidentally hit.

The Not So Good Bits:

For what it does and what it offers there really aren’t many negatives against the Yoga 12. We picked up the lack of an Ethernet port and the fact it’s quite weighty for a laptop of its size. If you like the look of the Yoga 12 but fancy it with a bit more oomph, check out our Yoga 12 with twice the amount of RAM.

The Design:

Very much in keeping with 12.5” Lenovo laptops, the Yoga 12 is both form and function. Where Lenovo have innovated with the tablet mode and their ‘lift ‘n’ lock keyboard’, it is possible to actually the Yoga 12 as a tablet and not accidentally mash any keys just while holding it.

Suitability:

It doesn’t excellent in any area but it is doesn’t disappoint either. It’s a middle of the road option for business or personal use and we think a brilliant choice for a child looking for their first laptop.
