Portability And Flexibility
Lenovo popularized the idea of a convertible laptop with its Yoga series, and Microsoft did the same for the convertible tablet with the Surface Pro. The two devices are variations on the same theme. Namely: a highly portable, large-screened touch device with flexibility around whether you use the keyboard or not. Those who want their keyboard to stay attached (but be able to fold all the way back) may favor something from the Yoga line – perhaps a soon-to-be-released premium model, the second-generation X1 Yoga. Meanwhile, the most-recent Surface Pro, the Surface Pro 4, is probably a better fit if you want the option to detach the keyboard.
But what if you aren't deciding on those criteria alone? The CRN Test Center has the breakdown on how the Lenovo X1 Yoga for 2017 compares to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 on specs and price.
