The tested model uses the Intel i3-4030U processor (1.9GHz), it has 4GB of RAM, integrated Intel graphics, 500GB hybrid hard disk, and 16GB SSD, which is enough to provide good results. The most important thing is the performance/autonomy ratio, which in this case goes up to 8hrs, depending on the way it is used. Thanks to Yoga series, Lenovo took a significant position on the market and new models just confirm that we have great, flexible laptop computers available whose functions are much beyond what we could see within competitive models. Yoga 2 is a great choice for those who are frequently on the move and who hold presentations, and it is equally well equipped for both, work and entertainment.
Positive: 360-degree flip-and-fold design; quality development; great performance; good autonomy; brilliant IPS screen.
