Yoga goes Windows. We're about to take a look at the Windows version of the ergonomic acrobat that is the Yoga 2. We've got a lot of questions: Did Lenovo equip this tablet with the same great IPS panel? How's the battery life compared to the Android model's? Are there any hardware updates? Read our review to find out what we discovered.

Source: Techreview Source English
Overall we found the tablet to perform very well and applications worked flawlessly. It definitely felt like an adequately powered tablet, which is something that you can't always say about tablets. Battery life clocked in at around 9.5 hours.

Comment

Model: Lenovo has been always a reputable company with decent price for their products and a good after sales service. The Lenovo Yoga 2 is a notebook designed to be a more different notebook. Rather than having the standard form factor of a notebook the Lenovo Yoga 2 has a removable keyboard and a touchscreen. Making it to be more like a tablet than a notebook. Compared to typical tablets, the Lenovo Yoga 2 might have slimmer design. The cylindrical battery doubles as a display stand rotating out. The LCD touchscreen has a size of 10.1 inch and a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and uses IPS technology. It is a very nice and sharp display. The rear camera has a resolution of 8 MP (3264 x 2448 pixels) and there is 1.6 MP front camera.

The hardware consist of an Intel Atom Z3745 quad core processor clocked at 1330 MHz, 2048 MB (2GB) of RAM, an Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail), 32 GB of built in storage and a MicroSD card slot, which supports up to 64 GB. This Windows 8.1 system is quite reasonable for everyday tasks, but it is not apt for gaming. The battery life is fairly decent with its lithium polymer battery with a capacity of 9600 mAh. The Yoga 2 lasts about 24 hours while idle and 15 hours in WLAN mode. The weight of the unit comes at only 630 g (without the keyboard). Speaking of the keyboard, it's a Bluetooth keyboard (magnet connection) with chiclet style keys. It relies on the hinge mechanism of the display to stand up right. The available ports are a micro HDMI port, a 3.5 mm headphones jack and a micro USB 2.0 port. The Lenovo Yoga 2-1051F is suitable for those who want a more portable notebook and need more than what a tablet can do.

Series:

The Thinkpad Yoga is a series of ultrabooks manufactured by Lenovo. The Yoga Series was launched during 2012, and its successor, the ThinkPad Yoga 2, was released in the 4th quarter of 2014. The Yoga laptops are made to be as light, thin and portable as possible, targeting the young and tech savvy consumers. The Thinkpad Yoga stands out due to its unique feature of being able to fold flexibly up to 360 degrees to switch to  tablet mode.

The Yoga Series started out in the end of 2012, with the Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 models, which are 11 and 13 inch respectively. Yoga 2 Pro was the second generation to be released end of 2013, a 13.3 inch model that is significantly lighter than the Yoga 13. The latest model to be released in the series is the Yoga 3 Pro, released recently at the end of 2014.

This new model is even thinner and lighter than all its predecessors while maintaining the 13.3 inch size, although due to a more powerful processor the battery life is slightly reduced to just under 6 hours. Besides the ThinkPad Yogas, there are also the IdeaPad Yoga Tablets, which come in 8 inch and 10 inch size as well.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3745: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.86 GHz (Turbo), an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


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.


80.8%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
