Lenovo reveals 13.3-inch Windows 8.1 version of Yoga Tablet 2 for $699.99

Lenovo announced a bunch of Yoga Tablet 2 models earlier this month, including a 10-inch Windows tablet. Today, the company stated that a 13.3-inch version of the Yoga Tablet 2 running on Microsoft's operating system will go on sale in November with a starting price of $699.99.

The 2.27 pound tablet will have a 2560x1440 IPS display. Inside, there's an Intel Atom Z3745 processor with a clock speed of 1.86 GHz, along with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage. The battery life is supposed to last up to 15 hours. It also includes a detachable Bluetooth keyboard that can also serve as a cover for the tablet. Like all of the other Yoga Tablet 2 models, this new addition has a kickstand that can allow the owner to user it four different ways: Hold (holding in the hand), Stand (standing by itself), Tilt (tilted for better media viewing) or Hang (hanging it on a hook placed on a wall). Finally, it has twin speakers and a JBL subwoofer with Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master Hi-Fi support.

The Windows 8.1 version of the 13.3-inch Yoga Tablet 2 is the same size as the Android version that was announced earlier this month, but with double its RAM and onboard storage. However, the Windows version lacks the Pico projector that the Android device has inside its battery case.
