A week ago, Lenovo announced its latest addition to its portfolio of multi-mode devices at the Red Dot Museum. The main highlights of that night are two new Yoga convertibles.
· Yoga 2 Pro, the successor to the original 360° flip and fold Yoga 13
· ThinkPad Yoga, for business users to achieve more with its multimode design and business-heavy features
The Yoga 2 Pro is equipped with a 13.3 inch screen, displaying images in 3200X1800 resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, with a 10 point multi-touch feedback. I can’t tell if it’s truly more portable than its predecessor, since I wasn’t at the previous launch but it sure is light at 1.39kg, which I could easily handle with one hand and from what Lenovo has shared, they kept the the four modes of laptop, stand, tent and tablet.
– Laptop mode
– Stand and Tent mode
– I missed out the Tablet mode photo and this happens to be the closest I have, on my iPhone.
As for the ThinkPad Yoga, while it’s similar in form like the Yoga 2 Pro, it will entice business customers with its performance, security and productivity features and including customization options. The 12.5-inch magnesium alloy ThinkPad Yoga offers visual and intensive multimedia experience, with choices of a HD IPS or a FHD IPS 10-finger multitouch display.
Slightly on the heavier side at 1.8kg, if compared with the Yoga 2 Pro.
Sadly, I didn’t pay as much attention to it as I was more intrigued with the Yoga 2 Pro, thus the lack of actual photos. So, the press release photos will have to do.
– ThinkPad signature red dot / pointing stick in the middle and if you noticed on the right corner, there’s another red dot. That will be your tablet pen.
– Tablet form (which is missing from the Yoga 2 Pro portion)
The additional feature that sets it apart from Yoga 2 Pro, will be unique lift and lock or retracting keyboard, when in tablet mode. That definitely lessen chances of accidental ‘typing’ or uncomfortable keyboard markings on arm.
As for the rest of the products, I’ll provide you the links to read up.
