Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro 59394173 Multimode Ultrabook
6 March 2015
Excerpt: In terms of the components in this model, it has a 4th generation i7 Intel processor and 8GB of RAM. It doesn't have any dedicated video memory, which is about the only weakness with this model.
Summary: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro has a superb design with the projector in place, a band name sound system, a decent camera and a high-resolution screen. The projector proves to be very useful since it is a great alternative for movie night.
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

17 April 2014
Summary: Many times, the update to a product line is a quick refresh of the system, with a few specs swapped out but essentially, the system remains the same. The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro defies this trend, with a machine that's been almost completely revamped from top to bottom.
Pros: Incredibly Fast:, Powerful Spec Upgrades:, QHD+ Display:, Old Flaws Fixed and Addressed:, Cool Features:
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: 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
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
