Lenovo's popular Yoga is getting a mobile connectivity boost this week thanks to a new ThinkPad Yoga 260 model. This new 12.5-inch convertible notebook is the first Yoga to ship with an LTE model, allowing owners to connect to the internet on the go. Like most Yogas before it, the ThinkPad Yoga 260 includes the flexibility to place the notebook into laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes, with a hinge that lets you push the display back and beneath the keyboard.
While an optional LTE model is an intriguing addition, Intel's Skylake processors are also present on the ThinkPad Yoga 260. You can choose between the base Core i3 chip all the way up to the powerful Core i7 processor, alongside up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD storage. Lenovo has opted for a really basic 12.5-inch HD display (1366 x 768) on the base Yoga 260 model, with an option for an FHD display (1920 x 1080). If you're interested in using the latest Windows Hello feature of Windows 10 then there's even an option to add a fingerprint reader to log into Windows without a password.
Discrete graphics option on the larger ThinkPad Yoga 460Lenovo also has a ThinkPad Yoga 460 if you're interested in a larger and better display. The Yoga 460 includes a 14-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) display on the base model, with the option for a WQHD (2560 x 1440) panel for even higher resolution. If you're interested in that type of resolution then Lenovo is also offering discrete graphics as an option thanks to Nvidia's GeForce 940M chip. Both the ThinkPad Yoga 260 and 460 include up to 10 hours of battery life.
Lenovo is planning to release the ThinkPad Yoga 260 in the US in November priced from $949, while the ThinkPad Yoga 460 will be available slightly earlier in October priced from $1049. If you're interested in a silver model then you'll have to wait until January to opt for that particular style choice, only the black models will be available this year.
