The gadget comes with a watchband-like crux joining the monitor with the base. You are able to slant it to an entire 360 degrees similar to the preceding gadgets or put it down horizontally on the floor at 180 degrees. Most prominently, the cruxes can lock themselves at all degrees of tilt.
The display happens to be quad HD+ 3200×1900 IPS touch screen of 13.3-inch offering wonderful clarity. The monitor comes with a Gorilla Glass for defending it against scratches. As far as size is concerned, the Yoga 3 Pro is transferable as well, measuring a mere 12.99-inch by 8.98-inch x 0.50-inch. One is able to slip it inside a standard backpack easily. Compared to Macbook Air’s 256GB flash storage and RAM of 4GB, Yoga 3 Pro has storage of 512GB and 8GB RAM.
