As I prepared to head across seas, I had to determine which items would make my suitcase cut. More importantly, I knew I had to select the perfect tech companion to accompany me. Knowing the details of the journey, it was crucial that I chose wisely. With a heavy lineup, including destinations throughout Spain, Italy, and France, I knew that I’d need the ideal partner to handle such a rigorous schedule. It would have to be small enough to fit in all the pouches, pockets and even upon small desktop counters that I’d encounter, as well as be easy enough to pack alongside my other travel buddies, like my Canon camera. For this reason, my choice would have to be lighter in weight, and most definitely flexible. Considering the circumstances- my selection was none other than the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro II.

While similar in functionality to its predecessor, this version is more compact in overall size. At only 2.4lbs and just 0.62” thin, this fantastic 2-in-1 made for an excellent companion for my travels abroad. Though this unit may feel like it’s a tad heavier than the original Yoga Pro 3, it’s not. It also used less space- because of its smaller frame, making transport and storage a breeze. It fit quite easily into my carry-on bag, providing me the accessibility I desired in- flight, during taxi-rides, as well as fit comfortably within both of my tote bags that I carried throughout my assignment. With a full schedule each day, it was imperative that I had an ultrabook that could meet all of my needs- and trust me, this one did!

The Yoga 3 Pro II has an 11.6in LED-backlit LCD high-definition widescreen, an Intel Core M-5Y71 processor, comes in 4GB -8GB of memory, from 180GB – 256GB hard drive, has voice recognition, a built-in webcam with microphone, and comes with an 8.1 Windows operating system. The multitouch also comes with Intel HD graphics, a 4-in-1 media reader, 1 USB 3.0 port, and 2 USB 2.0 ports. This Yoga additionally, lives up to its popular name, with the amazing capability to convert easily into 1 of 4 modes; laptop, tablet, tent and stand. It comes in black and white, and has a keyboard with a shiny finish – which enables you to glide across the keys with minimal effort. This touchscreen is the perfect choice for all of your upcoming travels! Bon Voyage~
