Lenovo’s new Yoga 2 Pro has the same flexible hinge, 3200×1800 display
Lenovo has just presented in the IFA a new improved version, the Yoga 2 Pro: the same concept but more fine, compact and with very high resolution screen.
Yoga 2 Pro, that already come with Windows 8.1 , is not much thinner than the previous model, but it is significantly lighter (1.4 kg, about 220 grams). The new design, with a stylized edges and finer, however makes it seem quite thinner than it is. You can compare them in the photo below. The old Yoga is below (in gray) and the Yoga 2 Pro above. There is a difference:
In the face of developments stands out above the rest of the screen 13 inches (which rotates 360 °, as before). All models of Yoga 2 Pro will have a screen QHD of 3200 x 1800 pixels resolution (more than the 2560 x 1440 the Toshiba Kirabook or the new Asus Zenbook, and quite a bit more than the 1080p of the Vaio Pro and the Aspire S7)
At the edge of the screen, from the outside, there is a rubber material so that your computer does not slip, especially to the ‘tent’ (photo above). Now the keyboard is backlit, and the power button is what have been moved to one side instead of placing it in the front.
With respect to the rest of technical specifications, is well equipped. Account with a processor Intel Gathering of 4th generation (up to a Core i7), with 8GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD. According to Lenovo, the battery lasts up to 6 hours in normal use, which is not much for one of these teams, especially taking into account that incorporates the Intel processors of new generation. The high-resolution screen probably has a lot to do with this.
What price? It is not overly cheap, but we believe that this balanced: $1,100 for a configuration of Core i5 processor, 128 of SSD and 4GB of RAM (QHD screen included). The team will go on sale October 18, the same day in the Windows 8.1 will be officially available.
