  • Summary: - 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.

Lenovo Yoga 2 13-inch

CNET
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.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review – Bang for the Buck!

UltrabookReview
25 May 2014
  • 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

  • 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

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

PC Magazine
24 December 2013
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Lid folds 360 degrees. Higher than 1080p HD screen. Excellent backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: 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.

Review Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Convertible

Notebookcheck
18 December 2013
  • Summary: Pixel-packed performer. Last year’s Yoga 13 was one of the most popular Ultrabooks yet, and for good reason: while it wasn’t perfect, it was smartly-designed, with a unique (and sturdy) build and good performance for its price point. One year later, can Lenovo’s successor carry the torch?
  • Pros: Stunningly hi-res screen, Great brightness, Great overall system performance, Good input devices, Sturdy build in spite of plastic predominance, Good thermal management while keeping noise levels low, Logical hardware revisions since the last generation Yoga models, The stunningly high-res and br...
  • Cons: Hi-res screen is not fully supported by all applications and even, to some degree, Windows itself, Sub-par battery life for its class, Intermittent wireless issues even with latest drivers, Throttling is frequent and immediate under full system stress and heavy GPU stress, Slight screen wobble wh...

  • Conclusion: 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 were such a thing as a foldable cake.
  • Pros: Slim convertible chassis, Phenomenal screen, Great battery life, Very good audio quality, Speedy performance
  • Cons: Dearth of ports, Off-center touch pad, Tablet mode leaves keys exposed on the underside, Low-res Webcam

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

Digitaltrends
14 November 2013
  • 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...
  • Pros: Stunning super-high-resolution screen, Thinner and lighter than last year’s model, Excellent keyboard is now also backlit, Runs relatively cool and quiet
  • Cons: High pixel count leads to sub-par battery life that’s significantly shorter than last year’s model, Keyboard still exposed in tablet mode
