Lenovo’s IdeaPad YOGA 2 Pro is officially on sale and starting at $1,049. When the original YOGA was released, we considered it close to perfection; the new Lenovo YOGA 2 Pro brings that dream one step closer to reality.
The YOGA 2 Pro sports a 3200 x 1800 10-point multi-touch display and is backed up by IPS support. Additional improvements include a new Lenovo Transition system, which automatically locks the keyboard in place when the hinge is flipped 360 degrees into tablet mode. The keyboard has also been upgraded and includes a backlit keyboard for easy use in low light situations.
The new design is also thinner at .61 inches thick and weighs just over 3 lbs. Throw in Lenovo Motion Control, Lenovo Voice Control, and Dolby Home Theater – we are sold.
Cheapest unit costs $1,049 and includes an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD. If you have the full $1,499, you can purchase the premium model with an Intel Core i7 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD. The unit is available in both silver and “clementine orange”. (And yes, it comes preloaded with Windows 8.1)
