Lenovo Yoga 2 13-inch

 

Lenovo's Yoga remains one of the best computer designs to result from the release of Windows 8.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 13 is an excellent ultrabook combined with the flexibility of fully rotating hinges giving you the feel of a regular well-constructed laptop as well as other positions to take advantage of Window 8.1 and the 1080p touchscreen.

Few ports and connections and its 802.11n Wi-Fi means you're not getting the latest and greatest. Somewhat heavy to use as a hand-held tablet.

If you can't quite afford the Yoga 2 Pro but still want a full-time laptop and a part-time tablet, the 13-inch Lenovo Yoga 2 is an excellent choice.

Lenovo Yoga 2 13

 

The Lenovo Yoga 2 13 is a well-designed convertible hybrid laptop, but the construction feels flimsier than that of previous iterations, and good-but-not-stellar performance doesn't help it stand out from the crowd.

Excellent convertible design. Decent performance and battery life

Construction quality has dropped from previous Yogas

The Yoga is back. The Lenovo Yoga 2 13 ($999 as tested) sits nicely between the smaller Yoga 2 11 and the premium Yoga 2 Pro with its high-resolution display. The new 13-inch ultrabook-class convertible hybrid laptop gets an updated design, new...

Lenovo Yoga 2 (13-inch) Review

 

The Lenovo Yoga, a thin, 13-inch convertible with an IPS display, was an early poster child for what touch functionality might bring to the PC. As time passed, and as the Yoga aged, it started to slip. The 1600×900 display went from cutting-edge to old...

Excellent display ; Strong processor performance ; More affordable than competitors

Limited connectivity ; Lackluster keyboard ; Slow mechanical hard drive ; Runs warm, system can be loud ; Feels heavy when used as a tablet

The new Yoga 2 boasts a 1080p touchscreen and 4th-gen Intel processor, but it doesn’t keep pace with the latest from Acer, Dell and HP.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 13

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad 2 13 combines a flexible flip design with a vibrant full-HD screen, but it doesn't offer the best performance.

Versatile flip design; Sharp bright display; Strong graphics performance

Relatively dim screen; Below-average performance; Some undersized keys

With the $899 IdeaPad Yoga 2 13, Lenovo continues to evolve its winning hybrid. You get a vivid 1080p display and a host of preinstalled apps to enhance and complement each of the notebook's modes. However, below-average performance and somewhat short...

The weight distribution is different when you switch into tablet mode, though, and the size and weight of the screen mean that you either need to rest it on your lap or use the tent option to prop it up on its own. Even so, it's still nice to have that...

In some respects the Yoga 2 is a real bargain, as it provides good screen quality, battery life and lightweight design at a very competitive price. Performance is below-par, although it will still handle routine web browsing, streaming video and...
