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.
