Lenovo Yoga 2 13-inch
1 July 2014
Summary: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Summary: While not without a handful of minor inconveniences, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is one of the best top-tier ultrabooks money can buy right now. It's sturdy and beautiful, in a very simple way, it packs fast hardware, a fairly good high-resolution display and is cheaper than all of its competitors.
Pros: versatile form factor, slim and light, simple and what looks like a reliable body, runs cool and quiet, excellent price
Cons: some color reproduction issues, battery life is shorter than expected, not the best selection of ports, rather slow SSD
Conclusion: We love the Lenovo's screen and keyboard, and can live with its few shortcomings—mainly the mediocre audio and Webcam, and the extra weight that any convertible (as opposed to a keyboard-dropping detachable) packs when used as a tablet.
Pros: Thin and light (in laptop mode), Fold it into a tablet, easel, or tent, Beautiful 1080p screen, Excellent backlit keyboard, Handy apps for each mode, Attractive price
Cons: Average port selection, Weak speakers, Tablet mode leaves keys exposed on the back side, Low-res Webcam, Shorter battery life than some competitors

Pros: Incredibly Fast:, Powerful Spec Upgrades:, QHD+ Display:, Old Flaws Fixed and Addressed:, Cool Features:
Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review: You say you want resolution
16 March 2014
Conclusion: It's worth repeating: Windows' scaling problems mostly come down to third-party developers and not Windows itself. Microsoft provides the capability, it just can't get developers to jump on board the way they have with Apple's Retina Macs.
Pros: Full-screen multimedia looks stunning on the 13.3-inch, 1800p touchscreen., CPU is up to the task of standard Windows 8 multitasking., Yoga-inspired hinge stands up to repeated use for incredibly comfortable viewing.
Cons: Windows 8's ecosystem hasn’t caught up to this screen’s resolution, making this laptop falter in desktop mode., Anti-glare coating on monitor leaves a little to be desired., An all-in-one shouldn’t force power users to tow an extra mouse around.
Summary: Final Thoughts
Using 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.
Pros: – 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
Summary: Dec 2 2013 - Lenovo took their original Yoga convertible design and made a huge number of improvements to it. The system is not only thinner and lighter than the original but packs an incredibly details display that is a thing to behold.
Conclusion: 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 improving on what was already a good...
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Thin and light, Flexible hinge is really useful, Gorgeous display
Cons: Only average battery life, Hinge tends to wobble, Jumpy trackpad
