THE YOGA 2 PRO HAS A SLEEK DESIGN, IS PACKED WITH A KILLER DISPLAY AND HAS A HEALTHY AMOUNT OF BATTERY LIFE

Life with the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

 

In January of this year, my wife and I were in need of a new laptop. A well-documented hinge issue with our Alienware M11x R2 meant that the screen was pretty much ready to fall off. While this issue was covered by a recall, the laptop was getting long...

The Yoga 2 Pro is a good Ultrabook that has a few flaws that keep it from being great. First is the battery life. In a light workload, almost seven hours of battery life would have been spectacular not that long ago, but with the Haswell U series...

It's Sunday, it's January, and it's freezing outside. In other words, it's the perfect day to spend the morning lying in bed, finally catching up on the Friday Night Lights and Battlestar Galactica...

Thin and light ; Flexible hinge is really useful ; Gorgeous display

Only average battery life ; Hinge tends to wobble ; Jumpy trackpad

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

 

Is it a laptop, a tablet, or something else entirely? Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro is an interesting mix of form factors, hardware, and operating system, that much we know. The screen, which folds a full 360-degrees around the back of the device, is the...

For the enterprise customer, the Yoga 2 Pro might be a great fit. Impromptu presentations become easier as the device flips into Tent orientation. Stand mode makes it easier to use while on a plane or train (or on the couch), and you’ll still enjoy all...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro Review

 

Lenovo returns to its Yoga line with improved performance and enhanced visuals. Is this convertible laptop any better now?

Beautiful high-resolution display ; High quality 360 degree hinge design ; Affordable considering specs

Deck has a propensity to collect debris ; SSD is a bit slower than average ; Tablet form bulky compared to detachable devices

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a quality device, but it may not be the best convertible notebook. The big issue for the Yoga 2 Pro is its added weight in Tablet mode. While 3lbs. is incredibly lightweight for a notebook, it’s bulky for a tablet....

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review: Great performance and a better-than-Retina display

 

The Yoga 2 Pro laptop/tablet hybrid is a superior experience in either orientation, and its ultrahigh-resolution display is awesome. But the dual design forced compromises with the keyboard.

Silky 3200-by-1800-pixel display ; Performs both notebook and tablet roles well ; Handsome industrial design

Weak typing experience (for a Lenovo laptop) ; Limited selection of I/O ports ; No ethernet; 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter (no 802.11ac)

The Yoga 2 Pro combination laptop/tablet is a superior experience in either role, and its ultra-high-resolution display is awesome. But the dual design slightly compromises the typing experience.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a device in between a slate tablet and a traditional laptop. QHD+ makes it attractive, but it's still a product for early adopters mainly.

Lid folds 360 degrees. Higher than 1080p HD screen. Excellent backlit keyboard.

Only one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port. Could use a bit more battery life. Some older apps have problems with scaling. Keys still exposed and clickable in tablet mode.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is summed up by the terms innovative hinge and brilliant screen. If those are what you are looking for, then by all means grab one and extensively try it out. That said, the current Editors' Choice Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro review: a high-end Ultrabook that's actually affordable

 

The Yoga 2 Pro addresses many of our complaints about the original, and is now one of the best touchscreen Ultrabooks you can buy, especially at this price. We just wish the battery life had improved more.

Gorgeous 3,200 x 1,800 display ; Lighter than the original, well-built ; Highly versatile design ; Reasonably priced

Relatively short battery life ; Keyboard still exposed in tablet mode ; Some undersized keyboard buttons

The Yoga 2 Pro addresses many of our complaints about the original: The display is sharper and the overall package has been slimmed down so that it's noticeably thinner and lighter. At the same time, the Yoga 2 Pro is still the most versatile Windows...

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review

 

With a stunning Retina-besting display, and a slimmer exterior, Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro is better in every way than last year's model, save for battery life.

After staring lovingly at the Yoga 2 Pro’s screen for a bit longer than we’d care to admit, and appreciating its other improvements, like its lighter weight, slightly slimmer shell, and backlit keyboard, a part of us wants to heap praise on Lenovo for...

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro ( 1.80GHz 1600MHz 4MB)

 

If you're not familiar with how the Yoga line works, it masquerades as an ordinary thin clamshell laptop, but the lid and display fold back a full 360 degrees to form either a thick tablet, or a stand/kiosk device when only folded partway back. That...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 is an excellent ultrabook, even without digging into its hybrid capabilities. This new model adds a backlit keyboard and an impressive 3,200x1,800-pixel-resolution display, while keeping the price under $1,000.

In battery life it lags behind a couple of more expensive higher-res laptops, some of the hybrid modes are of dubious use, and Lenovo still doesn't know what to do with the keyboard in tablet mode.

A major update to our favorite Windows 8 hybrid, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is still a better laptop than tablet, but the new version adds a future-proof better-than-HD display at a great price.
