  • The Lenovo 21e-20 is a solid budget ultraportable laptop, but its middling performance and battery life in our tests mean that it's best suited to those with very modest computing needs.


  • The $269 Lenovo S21e is a fairly capable budget notebook you can take anywhere, but its short battery life and wonky touchpad hold it back.


  • The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is a tough midrange convertible-hybrid laptop built to withstand the rigors of the school day.


  • The education-aimed Yoga 11e Chromebook bends into several useful hybrid shapes, but it's also too thick and rugged for commuters who want lightweight hardware for their lightweight operating system.


  • The Yoga 11e feels like a love letter to touch typists, but it falls too far short in other areas.


  • The Lenovo IdeaPad 100-14IBY is a solid desktop-replacement laptop with good battery life for a reasonable under-$500 price, but it doesn't shine otherwise. Better budget options are available.


  • The Lenovo ThinkPad E450 is a moderately priced business laptop with a professional-looking design and a work-friendly feature set.


  • The Yoga 3 14 is a large-screen convertible-hybrid laptop with Lenovo's vaunted 360-degree hinge. It's a good system in a category with fierce competition.


  • With better battery life and performance than the Yoga 3 Pro (not to mention a lower price), the Yoga 3 14 is one of the best hybrid deals around.


  •   The Lenovo Yoga 3 14-inch model is priced at Rs 86,990 which may seem like a high price. But the appealing factors for this laptop include the slim form factor and light weight, which will come at a premium. This immediately makes it a laptop to consider for business as well as mainstream users. The battery life is good enough to last you through an entire work day and the processor is powerful enough to let you do things beyond just regular web surfing and watching videos.
