Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

 

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 hybrid ultrabook addresses some of the shortcomings of the previous iteration. But it is still a bit too heavy to replace both a clamshell notebook and a slate tablet.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a welcomed improvement over its predecessor, offering better performance and visuals while retaining its flexible 360 degree hinge design.

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 Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 boasts a gorgeous quad HD plus display and a lighter design for switching between notebook and tablet mode, all for a good price.

Attractive soft-touch design; Colorful display and wide viewing angles; Versatile flip design; Loud and clear audio; Excellent keyboard and clickpad; Solid performance

Shorter battery life than competing Ultrabooks offer; Awkward power-button placement; SSD has below-average speed

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 boasts a gorgeous quad HD plus display and a lighter design for switching between notebook and tablet mode, all for a good price.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook Review

 

Final ThoughtsUsing the Yoga 2 Pro has been a treat I have to say. First lets talk about its size. The Yoga 2 Pro is truly meant to be portable. When you are holding it in your hand it really feels more like a magazine or book. Since it weighs in at...

Thinner and lighter than the previous version, – QHD+ 3200 x 1800 screen, – Lid can be folded back to enable different modes, – Lenovo includes applications you can actually make use of, – Quality built, – Backlit keyboard

None that I found

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review: Our Favorite Ultrabook Convertible So Far

 

The Lenovo ideaPad Yoga 2 Pro is one of the best 2 in 1 devices on the market, except that it's actually a 4-in-1. With a backlit keyboard, and a brilliant 3200 x 1800 display, the Yoga 2 Pro manages to improves on its predecessor without breaking the...

A premium device that is a good value for the money, very good performance, excellent build quality, versatile and lightweight form factor, backlit keyboard, and pretty good built in stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater sound

Battery life could be better, only a single USB 3.0 port, power button is a bit too recessed and difficult to push

Slim convertible chassis, Phenomenal screen, Great battery life, Very good audio quality, Speedy performance

Dearth of ports, Off-center touch pad, Tablet mode leaves keys exposed on the underside, Low-res Webcam

Indeed, even without its extra modes, the Lenovo would belong on any ultrabook shopper's short list for its swift performance, comfortable keyboard, and stunning screen, as well as its low price. Its versatility is a bonus—icing on the cake, if there...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

 

One of the best hybrid Ultrabooks on the market

Good build quality ; Excellent screen ; Useful as both a laptop and as a tablet

Single-band Wi-Fi ; Touchpad drivers not comprehensive ; SD cards stick halfway out of the slot

There are only a couple of things we don't like about the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro (mainly its Wi-Fi module and the touchpad driver), but overall it's a fantastic product that's fun to use. We had no problems using as a laptop, a tablet, and as a...
