My name is Colin. I am in Third Grade. This is my first written technology review.  I received a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro for Christmas 2015.  I borrowed a Yoga 900 so that today for my review I can compare my Yoga 3 Pro with the Yoga 900.

The Yoga 900 is slightly smaller than my Yoga 3 Pro. Both are very thin.
The 900’s width dimension is 12.75″ and the Pro 3 is 13″ wide.

Colors:

My Yoga 3 Pro is orange. The 900’s colors are orange, gold, or silver.

Display:
The screen display on the 900 is sharp so everything on it looks like the real thing. It seems about the same as the Yoga 3 Pro.

The touchpad on the 900 has a reflective edge design around it. Keys are flat with some curve. The backlit keyboard on the 900 is not as bright as on my Yoga 3 Pro.

The watchband hinge on the 900 comes in the color of the Yoga that you order, but the Yoga 3 Pro’s hinge is always silver.

Speed:
The Yoga 3 Pro seems a little bit faster and more powerful
[Editor’s Note: depending on the processor ordered and other variables]. Both models have SD card readers.

Battery:
The 900 has a longer lasting battery than the Yoga 3 Pro.

==========================================

I am enjoying my Yoga 3 Pro, but I REALLY  like the Yoga 900 in silver and gold.
The Yoga 3 Pro is no longer for sale at Lenovo’s Shopping Page. You can see the 900 at Lenovo or at your local Best Buy.
