Refined to a new level, the Yoga 3 Pro takes the pioneering Yoga laptop to greater heights. It features a new watchband-inspired hinge to increase stability, a large solid state drive and Intel's Core M processor for stunning performance on the go. Plus, it still features the same versatile multi-mode design, jaw-dropping screen and thin profile that make it a must for portable computing.
Intel Core M
Intel's Core M processor is designed for efficiency on the go. Wake in a flash, quickly open files and switch between apps, the Core M is ideal for anything from writing documents and building presentations to emailing and browsing online. It's also low on energy consumption, ensuring a longer lasting battery on the go.
Laptop, tablet, stand or tent
With the Yoga 3 Pro, you can easily switch between four modes to suit your needs, with the new watchband hinge ensuring stability. Crafted from individual pieces of aluminium and steel, it'll rotates through 360 degrees, so you can use it in laptop, tent stand and tablet modes whenever suits you best and feel sturdy when using the touch screen.
All Purpose Travel Companion
The Yoga 3 Pro is your ideal travel companion at an unbelievable 12.8mm thin and weighing just 1.19kg, it is perfect to pop into your bag and take with you. The large 256GB solid state drive (SSD) gives you quick access to any files and programs, so you can switch on and access your files in seconds. SSDs, unlike regular hard drives, are designed without moving parts, so they're less likely to fail with a bump or jolt while travelling, while 256GB of storage should provide plenty of room to store documents, photos, songs and videos.
Entertainment Enhanced
Yoga 3 Pro's gorgeous multi-touch screen features a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels, also known as QHD+. At four times the resolution of 1600 x 900 (HD), the Yoga 3 Pro will display images and text with incredible clarity. Combined with JBL speakers and Maxx Technologies by Waves Audio, you'll find that sound matches vision, as Maxx Technologies dynamically adjusts output to optimise sound for whatever you're listening to.
In Harmony
Yoga Harmony software learns from the way you use your Yoga to optimise settings, provide shortcuts to your favourite apps and recommend new apps to try. This intuitive software will help you get more out of your Yoga 3 Pro.

You can also get the orange option on Amazon

Seems good, not heard much about processor though, how does it compare to I series processors?
I have this.

Bought about a year ago for £475 (after cashbacks) from very.co.uk

It's a very nice-looking machine, although do make sure you do your research on the processor. For most people it's fine, but if you're into gaming, graphics stuff or complex spreadsheets or whatever, it'll be too slow.

For £650 there are much better laptops spec wise - or otherwise you can get the same spec a fair bit cheaper these days.

FWIW, I'm really happy I got mine - and would still have been happy if i'd paid this price. But that was a year ago and prices have now come down.

Are u sure u got the pro?

​Definitely the same model as I also got on this deal from Very. Very had it cheap and there was £200 cashback from Lenovo also. Great machine for the price
got this one, would recommend!
Brilliant machine , would recommend
I dont know much about the m series, but im looking for a laptop that would easily run matlab, cad, solidworks etc while being light to take to uni(45 min commute), would anyone recommend this laptop?

This is extremely thin and ultra portable with a fantastic QHD IPS screen, however the processor is made to have low power consumption so it performs like a last gen dual i5. So I think it might struggle you probably want to get a skylake i7.

I'd steer clear of the 4.5w "core M" processors tbh.

Basically they burst into a super-fast processor mode for about 5-10 seconds, then drop back to a low-power state to avoid overheating. Great for booting up really quickly, opening programs quickly etc - It gives laptops really long battery life and/or means they can be made super thin/light - But they really aren't designed for software which requires prolonged processor power.

Given your needs, I think you'll regret not going for something with a 15w processor (i3, i5, i7)

The i5 surface pro 4 + keyboard would be a decent fit for you if you can stretch to that price (£950). It was on offer at Microsoft store/John Lewis for about £750 recently - I expect they will be on offer again within the next few months if you can wait.

I probably will wait given that exams are soon and after that i have a 3 month holiday, so there's really no rush tbh. i also have an i7 laptop at home, just its too heavy to take. thanks for the help, i havent kept up with processors etc since the ix-4xxx series, and now we're on 6 so youre help was appreciated

I would check the recommended spec for CAD. I find single core performance is more important. Matlab doesnt need too much. If you are looking at using FEA or CFD i would suggest SSD.
Don't forget that it also includes the best selling feature: "Remote Login from China".

And in case some shady entity tried to remove that, BAM:

Great specs too!

Last time I mentioned that 4th gen (4xxx series) were outdated and you should be looking to 6th gen Skylake, I got told I didn't know what I was talking about, but performance hasn't changed a great deal, in fact, not lot since Sandy Bridge, it seems to be mostly about improving power consumption, efficiency and GPU performance.

Core M is very interesting but can be quite niche, so as others say if you need sustained power, don't get a Core M, get an 'i-class' processor instead. It's fine for general purpose use (not specialist, performance apps).

Also worth noting this is 5th gen Broadwell, not 6th gen Skylake which might account for the keen price as it's technically EOL.
