Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great design
Like other Thinkpad laptops, the Yoga 260 has a great raven-black colour scheme with some small splashes of colour from the flashing red light under the Thinkpad logo and the trackpoint on the keyboard. This simple colorscheme gives the laptop a very serious and business-like look.
Pro Great build quality
The lid is made from a carbon-fiber hybrid and the base is made from a plastic-magnesium blend. This combination of materials makes it quite strong while still feeling like a premium product.
Pro Decent battery life
The Thinkpad Yoga 260's battery averages at around 7 hours of casual use.
Pro Amazing keyboard
Like other Thinkpads, the Yoga 260 has an excellent keyboard as well. The keys offer great feedback and deep travel with 2mm of travel. Keys are also slightly curved in order to make it easier to hit them.
The keyboard is also spill-resistant and has backlighting (like most laptops nowadays) with two lighting settings; high and low.
Pro Comes with a great stylus
The Yoga 260 comes with a great stylus, called ThinkPad Pen Pro that provides 2048 levels of pressure that provides a highly accurate drawing experience. Strokes appear thicker or thinner depending on the pressure exerted on the pen and letters drawn on the screen appear as clear as if they were drawn on paper.
Pro Relatively bright screen
Even though it's not vibrant, the Thinkpad Yoga 260 manages a full 328 nits of brightness, which is 20 nits more than the average for this laptop category.
Con Lifeless color output
Even though the display for this laptop is of high quality, the color output unfortunately feels lifeless and benchmarks seem to enforce this point. Acoording to colorimeter tests the Yoga 260 only manages to reproduce 68.5% of the sRGB color gamut.
