Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11

80% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11 Convertible | Notebookcheck
The Atom Renaissance. Windows RT is history – the new entry-level version of the Yoga-series uses Intel's Bay Trail and a full version of Windows 8.1 64-bit. More usage scenarios and more performance also result in a significant drop of the battery runtimes.

The 11" Lenovo Yoga 2 is a decent, adaptable ultrabook that's pretty pleasant to use, provided you don't ask too much of it. Considering its portable design, it's a shame that Lenovo hasn't offered a more impressive battery life: you may find that this hampers its ability to perform tasks.

HP or Lenovo: Which Windows PC Convertible Is Head of the Class?
Source: Recode English
The HP Pavilion x360 and Lenovo Yoga 2. Both are 11-inch convertible Windows PCs with a 360-degree hinge design, meaning that you can fold the keyboard back under the display to use it as a tablet. The Pavilion x360 starts at $400, and the Yoga 2 starts at $489. If you’re in the market for a new laptop, and like the idea of hybrid design, the Lenovo Yoga 2 is a good choice. It’s a little more expensive than the HP Pavilion x360, but you’ll get more for the money.

70% Lenovo Yoga 2 11 review – the affordable 2-in-1 laptop
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 11 inch Lenovo Yoga 2 is one of the most interesting affordable 2-in-1s available right now. It sports the convertible form factor and a sleek and solid body, an IPS touchscreen and a fanless Intel platform able to handle everyday activities well enough. Just don't get the base version that comes with a slow HDD (or upgrade it if you do) and don't expect too much in terms of battery life.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.295 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


69.14%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
