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. On top of that, don't forget about the flipping screen!
  • 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

A laptop with one hell of a party trick

5 February 2014
  • Summary: It was true of the IdeaPad Yoga 13, and it’s true of the $1,049 Yoga 2 Pro: it’s mostly successful because it doesn’t try to do too much. Lenovo realized a year ago that though people might want a versatile device that works as well for watching movies in bed as it does for getting work done, the reality is most people spend most of their time getting work done.
  • Pros: Thin and light, Flexible hinge is really useful, Gorgeous display
  • Cons: Only average battery life, Hinge tends to wobble, Jumpy trackpad

More resolution for less money with the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

CNET
22 January 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

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 bright IPS screen, comfortable weight, great build quality, and quick system performance all add up to a strong choice for an affordable convertible.
  • 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 while typing or tapping, Better battery life and software support for QHD+ panel resolutions, as well as corrections for some of the more minor issues we encountered.

  • 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 convertible, and taking a risk by dropping in possibly the best screen we’ve ever seen on a laptop.
  • 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
