IFA 2013 | Lenovo announces the ThinkPad Yoga and Yoga 2 Pro convertibles

The Yoga 2 Pro offers 3,200X1,800 pixels, the highest resolution on the market today. This makes it a great choice for multimedia and entertainment fans, while the ThinkPad Yoga is an excellent machine for business users.

Back in March 2013, the Lenovo IdeaPad  Yoga 13 was officially launched to become the first ultrabook in the world with a four mode design. Now, the Yoga series is refreshed by the Yoga 2 Pro, as well as an updated ThinkPad Yoga.

These are the features of the Yoga 2 Pro, the successor of Lenovo's 13.3-inch Yoga:

  • Processor: Haswell family, up to Core i7 ULT
  • Display: 13.3-inch 10-point touchscreen, QHD+ (3,200X1,800 pixels) resolution with 350 nit brightness and wide angle viewing
  • Memory/Storage: up to 8 GB; up to 512 GB SSD
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Battery Life: up to 9 hours
  • Work modes: laptop, tablet, stand and tent
  • Weight: 3.06 pounds
  • Base Price/Availability: $1,099/October 18

The Yoga 2 Pro also features a backlit keyboard, as well as Lenovo's own Yoga Picks tool, a program that recommends suitable apps based on the current work mode of the ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro. The base setup that will be available for $1,099 contains a Core i5 processor, 128 GB SSD, and 4 GB RAM

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga features the four work modes design as well, combined with features aimed at business users, such as Near Field Communications, a unique lift and lock system for tablet mode, or the One Link dock, available separately, which offers a mini HDMI connection, USB ports, Gigabit Ethernet and more.

This convertible will become available in November starting at $949 and its hardware options are about the same as Yoga 2 Pro's. The main difference is the screen's resolution, the maximum being Full HD. The new ThinkPad Yoga is also expected to feature up to 1 TB of storage space.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
