Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

 

Lenovo introduced its original Yoga back in late 2012, which we were impressed with its ability to create an ultrabook that is able to have multiple functions, such as its ability to be used as a tablet or a stand. […]

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...

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review

 

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 seasons I somehow missed a few years ago. Normally...

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

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

A laptop with one hell of a party trick

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

 

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: a high-end Ultrabook that's actually affordable

 

With enough time, even the best products start to feel stale. Take the original Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13: Thanks to a unique hinge that allowed the screen

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, 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.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review

 

While we don't have any hard sales numbers, we have strong suspicions that Lenovo's original IdeaPad Yoga was one of the more successful convertibles of the last year, if not one of the more successful PCs, period.

Stunning super-high-resolution screen ; Thinner and lighter than last year’s model ; Excellent keyboard is now also backlit ; Runs relatively cool and quiet

High pixel count leads to sub-par battery life that’s significantly shorter than last year’s model ; Keyboard still exposed in tablet mode

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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

 

The all-around best-in-class example of a first-generation Windows 8 hybrid was the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga , a clever fold-back laptop-turned-tablet that was almost universally liked in both its 13-inch and 11-inch versions (let's just not mention the...

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.
